Red Velvet‘s Irene and Seulgi recently came back as a sub-unit with “Monster”, which is currently slaying the music charts.
During a press conference for SM C&C Studio’s reality project, Level-Up Thrilling Project, Irene and Seulgi opened up about how the sub-unit changed their relationship for the better.
Regarding the preparation stages of the sub-unit, Irene expressed,
I haven’t noticed any big differences before, but while preparing for the sub-unit together, I began to realize that in the work-related sense, Seulgi grew up a lot. I was happy to see that she has grown in a different way from before.
Irene then went on to describe how the sub-unit changed her views on her fellow member, Seulgi.
Now, she’s actually my little sister, Seulgi. Before, I just felt like we were fellow Red Velvet members. But now, I feel like she’s my actual little sister.
And in response, Seulgi didn’t hold back on sharing her thoughts about what kind of person Irene has become for her after the sub-unit.
To me, she’s actually like my big sister. I only have a big brother, so I didn’t know what it felt like to be taken care of my a big sister.
I’ve felt this ever since I was little and we started working together. She’s an actual ‘unnie.’ I felt it a lot in the things she said and her letters, but I feel like thanks to her, I grew a lot and learned a lot about people.
Level-Up Thrilling Project is a spin-off of Red Velvet’s Level-Up Project which will showcase Irene and Seulgi’s daily life in commemoration of their successful sub-unit debut.
Looks like fans will get to see Irene and Seulgi’s even closer relationship with their own eyes!
