K-pop music brings a lot of people together; we can all probably think of someone we've become friends with thanks to our mutual love of K-pop.
Of course that friendship extends to the artists themselves, some of whom form impressive squads with their fellow talented besties. Here's just some of the K-pop friendships that scream squad goals to us.
The parka squad
Probably the most infamous K-pop friendship squad at the moment, there's so much star power in this one group of friends, it's blinding. You've got childhood besties EXO's Kai, SHINee's Taemin and HOTSHOT's Timoteo, plus BTS' Jimin and Ha Sungwoon. They even got matching parkas to celebrate their friendship!
The '97 liners
They love to tease with the occasional social media post from their seemingly chill dinner and drinks hangs. The core four seem to be BTS' Jungkook, SEVENTEEN's Mingyu, ASTRO's Cha Eunwoo and GOT7's Yugyeom, but there's also GOT7's BamBam, SEVENTEEN's DK and The8, and NCT's Jaehyun in the group chat.
The '92 liners
VIXX's Ken, BTS' Jin, MAMAMOO's Moonbyul, B1A4's Sandeul and EXID's Hani are all friends thanks to their shared age. They're known to send each other on-set gifts like coffee carts, and the occasional prank on radio too!
The '91 liners
Another group that gathered due to their birthdays being the same year, this crew seems like they'd be the best fun! It includes BTOB's Changsub, Apink's Chorong, B1A4's Jinyoung, INFINITE's Hoya and MAMAMOO's Solar.
The Thai idol crew
There's quite a few Thai K-pop idols and there's definitely a crew who keep in touch through group chat. BLACKPINK's Lisa and GOT7's BamBam have been friends since childhood, and Lisa has said that she's close to CLC's Sorn and 2PM's Nickhun.
The drinking trio
Ok, that's probably not their name but they love joking about how many drinks they can sink when they're together. SM Entertainment labelmates SHINee's Minho, Super Junior's Kyuhyun and TVXQ!'s Changmin have a great bond that they've shared in funny videos and live performances over the years.
The actor gang
This gang of handsome faces consists of idols of varying ages: there's the youngest member, BTS' V, with actors Park Hyung Sik, Park Seo Joon, Choi Woo Shik and singer Peakboy. Apparently their group chat is always lively thanks to V, Hyung Sik and Woo Shik's talkative personalities!
