ITZY x Stray Kids: Bang Chan Fondly Talks About Ryujin, Praising Her & Many More!
The friendship of Stray Kids' Bang Chan and ITZY's Ryujin is common knowledge between MIDZYs and STAYs.
Notably, Bang Chan and Ryujin were JYP Entertainment trainees since 2010 and 2015, respectively, up until their debut.
Now that the two have debuted in the K-pop industry as members of two highly-successful K-pop groups, they always show love and support towards one another.
Stray Kids' Bang Chan praised Ryujin that it was amazing to see her hard work finally pay off. As per the Stray Kids' leader, back when they were trainees, ITZY's Ryujin used to worry a lot, and she confided her woes to Chan.
"Ryujin, I've been with her since trainee days. We were really close. She'd tell me her thoughts, what she's going through," Stray Kids' Bang Chan remarked.
Stray Kids' Bang Chan believed that the advice he gave Ryujin was not helpful; it did help further build their friendship.
Stray Kids' Bang Chan added, "I tried to help a bit. It probably wasn't that helpful but, you know, even by listening, I tried to help."
Additionally, sweetly remarked that Ryujin truly deserved the spotlight. ITZY's Ryujin's "Artist of the Month" achievement was proof enough that she is not an elite performer and this made Stray Kids' Bang Chang really proud.
Stray Kids' Bang Chan adorably concluded, "She practiced a lot with dancing. That's what I remember. She practiced too hard. Seeing this come up, I was like, 'Oh, her hard work really paid off.'"
