Welcome to the fifth article of Kpopmap’s monthly series “K-Pop Besties“!

This month, readers voted for Jeon SoMi and the TWICE members in our monthly poll (at the end of the article) to be featured in this month’s article. If you are a new K-Pop fan you might not know how their friendship started. Let’s take a look back at their friendship.

SoMi became friends with the members of TWICE when they all participated in the same survival show in 2015 called “SIXTEEN“. This is the show where the resulting debut group was TWICE. Other contestants who are famous and participated in that show at the time include ITZY’s ChaeRyeong and her sister Lee ChaeYeon

Unfortunately, SoMi did not make the final cut to be in the group but later went on to participate in the survival show “Produce 101” which is where she gained even more popularity. Despite moving on, she remained friends with the TWICE members.

In fact, there is even a video clip of the members reacting to SoMi’s appearance on “Produce 101”.

TWICE and SoMi have consistently supported each other’s careers since their “SIXTEEN” days. They take selfies whenever they reunite, do each other’s dance challenges, celebrate each other’s wins, and still keep in contact.

In fact, when TWICE won their 5th win at “Music Bank” for their hit song ‘Cheer Up’, SoMi stayed on stage a little bit longer to celebrate with them and did the choreography with TWICE’s JeongYeon and Sana.

They even have a vlog together as part of SoMi’s reality show “I AM SOMI” where they go on a brunch date together.

In the video, they cutely joke about how the two of them don’t match as friends because they always miss each other very much but when they meet up have no idea what to do. They are like a cute relatable sister duo. 

It is clear that they have a strong bond.

SoMi is also known for her popularity and friendships with various K-Pop idols but has said that she is the closest with the TWICE members.

Here is the video where she talks about how she feels they are her only close friends in the industry (from 08:43).

She also once mentioned that when she is having a hard time, the people that she relies on and calls a lot are TWICE’s ChaeYoung and NaYeon.
