Kep1er was one of six artists who participated in Mnet‘s survival program Queendom 2.
They shared the stage with Hyolyn…
…and eventual winners WJSN (also known as Cosmic Girls).
Though it was primarily a cutthroat competition with the teams being ranked against each other, long lasting friendships were still formed between the groups. Kep1er confirmed this in a recent interview with Billboard.
Chaehyun personally got closer to her fellow vocal unit members, LOONA’s Haseul, Kim Lip, Jinsoul, and Chuu, who covered EXO‘s “Don’t Go” in the position unit battle. She became friends with Yeonjung of WJSN, another powerful vocalist, as well.
First of all, our Sun and Moon unnies — LOONA’s Haseul, Kim Lip, Jinsoul and Chuu — and Yeonjung [of WJSN] unnie! We all got close through the vocal unit performance and keep in touch to this day.
Besides forming new connections, Kep1er was also reunited with their old friends. Yujin was happy to see WJSN’s Bona for the first time in a while. The two have known each other since their trainee days.
I’ve known WJSN’s Bona unnie for a long time! After so long, we reunited at Queendom 2.
Yujin added that they were able to talk in between filming. She learned that Bona has been cheering on her from the sidelines when she restarted her career with Kep1er in 2022 following CLC‘s halt of promotions.
We had a conversation, and she told me that she is watching Kep1er’s work and that we are doing really well!
Because of Queendom 2, Yujin and Bona were able to schedule a future hangout session and let the other know of their support. Yujin made sure to praise Bona for doing a job well done on the K-Drama Twenty Five, Twenty One.
I got in touch with her to meet up once we’re free. I was so proud to see her TV [acting] work too!
