4 cutest cross-group friendships of female K-pop idol pairs

They are not members of the same groups, but that doesn’t stop them from being close. 

Besides staying close to their fellow members, many female idols also hang out with the girls outside of their groups. Not only having interactions on joint stages in front of fans, these K-pop girlfriend pairs even went on private dates with one another.

Rosé (BLACKPINK) – Chaeyoung (TWICE)

On March 15, Rosé was unexpectedly spotted on a dinner date with Chaeyoung. The two also gave their autographs to a lucky fan who ran into them. 

Fans are loving this friendship of two “Chaeyoungs” as Rosé’s real Korean name is also Chaeyoung, and they seem to share many similarities such as their interest in fashion and changing hair color.

A funny story of their date is when the bill was brought out, both Jennie and Irene wanted to pay. Jennie quickly put her credit card on the bill with a cute expression as if she was “persuading” Irene to let her pay. 

Irene also took a photo of Jennie at the restaurant. This photo was later posted by Jennie on her personal Instagram.
