Fans of YG and HYBE artists might not get along, but their idols sure do
YG Entertainment and HYBE Labels are now undoubtedly top names in Korea, with their astoundingly popular artists. However, while fans of the two agencies are often neck to neck with fanwars, their idols boast surprisingly close relationships.
Recently, an interaction between BTS V and BLACKPINK Lisa has made headlines in Korea. In particular, the two attended Celine’s show at Paris Fashion Week, and Lisa talked to V at this event. To address the male idol, Lisa called him “oppa” – a Korean term used by younger women towards male figures older than them. However “oppa” is only often used if said male and female have a close relationship, leading to suspicions that Lisa and V are close friends. In addition, the two’s appearance at Celine’s dinner party also drew attention.
Previously, fans were also surprised to catch BTS J-Hope and BIGBANG G-Dragon in the same frame. The two famous idols apparently attended an exhibition of contemporary artist Tom Sachs together, and also went to his birthday celebration.
In addition, BLACKPINK’s Jennie and BTS’s V have recently had their names attached to each other in plenty of articles and online posts due to dating rumors. Despite the growing speculations about their relationship, both Jennie and V’s agencies still refuse to issue a response.
In the past, BTS members also openly expressed their admiration for BIGBANG and referred to the 2nd gen boy group as their role model. This is not surprising because not only BTS, a lot of male idols are fans of BIGBANG.
