Hearing that, Hani and other members looked at the crowd and greeted, “Hello! Nice to meet you”, making the students even more curious.
Later, Minji revealed the identity of the person she mentioned. She confessed, “It’s my older brother”.
Kyung Hee University students were all very surprised to hear Minji’s confession and they cheered loudly.
After the festival, videos of that scene spread quickly on social media and online communities.
