MAMAMOO's Wheein shared that she and Hwasa met on the very first day of a new term. This was when they were in middle school. Additionally, the two were also in the same class.


"I didn't like her at first. Nobody asked her to sing, but she randomly sang in front of other classmates. When I saw her do that, I was like, 'Wow, I don't think I'll ever become close to her.' She seemed like a total attention seeker," MAMAMOO's Wheein added.

After this, MAMAMOO's Wheein revealed how she and Hwasa became close.

The "Make Me Happy" singer shared that as the two introduced themselves to the class, Hwasa came up to her. "I like you. Let's be friends" Hwasa revealed. Thus, the two got along well, and the two wanted to be singers. This is how their close friendship began.


"Later on, Hwasa told me why she wanted to be friends with me. I tested my hair straightener the night before but had just come to school with that somewhat messy tested hair because I woke up too late to wash it. I wrapped my scarf only once around my neck and placed my hair behind the scarf," MAMAMOO's Wheein adorably shared.
