9 K-Pop Friendships That Show Womance Beats Bromance

You may all be familiar with the “bromance” in K-pop, but are you as aware of the “womance?” Womance in K-pop are just as strong, if not more prevalent, as bromance. From meeting for the first time in a variety show to knowing each other since before debut, many female idols have formed special bonds and friendships. We’ve created a list of female idols who are known for their friendships, despite being in different groups, and for many, different agencies. So check out this list, complete with some clips of adorable/funny/touching moments, and tell us: Which couple has the most womantic chemistry?

Girl’s Day’s HyeriT-ara’s Jiyeon

혜리 지연2

Hyeri and Jiyeon, who had MCed together for SBS MTV‘s music show “The Show,” are well known to be close friends. Hyeri revealed in an interview that she is extremely close to Jiyeon, and that Jiyeon is very good to her. Having the same blood type and birthdays only two days apart, Hyeri says their personalities really click. When Hyeri decided to step down as an MC from “The Show” to focus on acting, Jiyeon cried along with Hyeri during her goodbye speech. Check out the clip:

f(x)’s Amber4Minute’s HyunA

HyunA and Amber have got to be one of the best looking womantic couples. Although both HyunA and Amber are known to have a number of other idol friends in the industry, the two certainly seem to have a special friendship, as they often pose together in pictures and upload them on Instagram.

Girl’s Day’s MinahA Pink’s Eunji

The two girl groups, A Pink and Girl’s Day, are often considered rival groups. Naturally, the two main vocals of the groups, Eunji and Minah, have also been often pitted against each other. Many fans think they look extremely alike, and they indeed have many similarities such as their famous eye-smiles, outgoing personalities, and being the same age. Despite this rivalry set-up by others, the two were revealed to be good friends. They are so adorable in this cheek-to-cheek selfie!

4Minute’s SohyunKARA’s Youngji

Although there isn’t a solid “proof” that they are close friends, I’m sure these two maknaes have been getting close recently. Sohyun and Youngji debuted at different times through different groups but ended up working together through “Hyungdon and Daejun’s Hit Maker” and being active as Chamsonyeo members. Also, both of them were born on August 30, 1994! They are just meant to be.

Min and Hyoyeon, the unexpected combo, have known each other for a long time as they attended the same dance school before debut. Having met each other at an early age, the two have been close friends since.

Min and Hyoyeon are often seen hanging out together and appearing at same events such as birthday parties and concerts. Check out this clip of them dancing together in a competition with the team name Little Winners:

Ha:tfeltSunmi

Although the two are no longer in the same group, Ha:tfelt and Sunmi have been shown that they maintained their friendship together by appearing in various public events and hanging out together. Going to fashion shows and appearing on TV shows as part of a celebrity audience, the two seem to have gotten even closer recently. Ha:tfelt also revealed through an interview that Sunmi often asks her for advice on various topics. Ha:tfelt also referred to Sunmi as “one of the closest people” to her in JYP.

YewonSISTAR’s Bora

Yewon and Bora developed their friendship through the TV show “Invincible Youth Season 2.” As the show involved spending a lot of time together, the two became close very quickly through some bickering and teasing (like an old couple). Having the same (Korean) age, Yewon and Bora revealed through a radio show that they still talk to each other often and meet up even though the show ended. Check out the two having a friendly(?) pillow fight here:

IUf(x)’s Sulli

IU sulli2

Dedicating a song to one’s significant other is pretty romantic. So it was pretty womantic of IU to reveal that her song “Peach” was written for none other than Sulli. Considering that “Peach” is a love song, you’ll realize how much IU adores Sulli just by reading its sweet lyrics. The “person” in the song is described as “beautiful” and “pure white.” The singer expresses that the “person” makes her “go crazy when [she] smiles” and makes her “heart flutter just by seeing [her].” Moreover, IU revealed that, if she was to be born again, she wants to be Sulli, and considers her as one of the prettiest celebrities in Korea.

SISAR’s Soyu4 Minute’s Gayoon

Soyu and Gayoon have been close friends since their days as trainees. It was also revealed that Gayoon and Soyu were originally set to debut as a group similar to Davichi. Although it didn’t work out, I hope they collaborate one day!

Get a glimpse of their friendship through this clip, as Gayoon genuinely congratulates Soyu for getting first place (and Soyu unexpected drags Gayoon to sing the encore together).

Sunmi reveals her close non-JYP celebrity friends & ideal type

In her sit-down interview with interviewer Heechul of Super Junior, Sunmi revealed some inside information about herself.

When asked about which celebrities she was close to outside the JYP circle, Sunmi picked Hyuna of 4Minute, Lizzy of Orange Caramel, and Ilhoon of BTOB.

Heechul was also quick to ask who her ideal type was to which she answered “a pure but masculine type of guy”. She named Tony Stark of “Iron Man” and Kang Baekho of the “Slam Dunk” series as examples and picked Trash over Chilbong from drama “Reply 1994” as being closer to her ideal type.

She further explained that she did not think too importantly of competancy as a trait yet as she was still young. She continued on to say that she preferred men with short hair to long.

As Heechul and Sunmi are known for their close relationship, the interview was held in a casual, light-hearted environment.

Even if I run into them a lot, I"m not the type to approach them first. But when I do get close to someone, the relationship goes long and deep."

Lee Jung Shin chose photography as one of his favorite hobbies. He said, "I tend to get results when I do what I like to do. Later in life when I have the chance, I want to have my own art exhibition with my pictures and even take CNBLUE"s album jacket photos."

I love how there's been a recent rise in American celebrities and Korean rockstars meeting and working together. Psy has definitely made a path in America, but it's exciting to see CL at New York Fashion Week hanging out with huge names in Hollywood, and Justin Bieber Tweeting at G-Dragon!

CL 2NE1, gdragon, flo rida, psy, wonder girls

I'm amazed at how much K-pop has grown over the years. I remember the days where Americans only knew about H.O.T, not for their music, but because their style and hair-dos were out of control and hilarious to poke fun at. Nowadays, it's cool to be associated with K-pop and all its musical glory, addictive dance moves, and stars. I'm always fascinated when I see a K-pop star take a photo with an American celebrity, not because they simply passed each other in an airport, but because they're actually friends and these stars want to collab with our stars. Insanity! Let's take a look at folks who you didn't know were friends!

The legend that is Will Smith personally requested that singer Jay Park have his single, "I Like To Party" at the end of he and son, Jayden Smiths' film "After Earth." The father son power team came to Korea to promote their film and to hang out with Jay whose song did come out in the end credits. Jay told Mr. Smith that it was the first time he's ever been star-struck in his life.
