Fans are on board with the Yeji-Karina ship after these two idols showed off their friendship at MAMA backstage

The Karina-Yeji ship has recently sailed.

Recently, never-before-seen footage of MAMA backstage was released in Japanese. In this video, fans noticed that in Yeji (ITZY)‘a segment, there is suddenly a special guest, Karina (aespa).

Because the two female idols performed together for the special opening stage of MAMA, Karina took the time to stop by to chat with Yeji during the break. This “ship” rarely shows direct interaction, but once in a while, when it throws some super quality hints.

When Karina approached Yeji, she happily said, “It’s me”. Yeji immediately teased her friend, at the same time turned on the lightick, cheered Karina’s name like a passionate fan, and identified herself as Mys (aespa’s fandom name).  Karina also repaid the favor as she immediately performed Yeji’s choreography in Loco, and did not forget to introduce: “This is sweet little kitty (name for the couple Yeji and Karina)”.

Previously on the dance stage of the 4th generation idols at MAMA 2021, Karina and Yeji both appeared but did not interact directly. That’s why when KBS Gayo Daechukje took place a week later, fans were surprised to see Yeji and Karina taking pictures together. Now that the above behind-the-scenes footage was released, it turns out that the two girls have been very close since MAMA.

Karina also showed off a picture of her private messages with Yeji, the two even called each other by nicknames “kitty” and “fury” inspired by the duo in the movie “How to Train Your Dragon.”

Not only Karina and Yeji but ITZY and aespa are also very close. Although the two groups are rivals in terms of achievements and their fans also have many conflicts, but the girls have a very lovely friendship and show super sweet interaction.
