B1A4 and Bangtan Boys (BTS) fans certainly knew that Sandeul and Jin are close friends. Together with VIXX’s Ken, the three idols, who were all born in 1992, often show their closeness and hang out together. Sandeul broadcasts “Starry Night” on July 9. On this occasion, Sandeul discussed his friendship with another popular idol, Bangtan Boys’ Jin. Sandeul and Jin are friends because they were both born in 1992. There is a group of idols born in 1992 who are close friends, which is B1A4’s Sandeul, Jin, and Baro, VIXX ‘Ken, EXID’s Hani and also Mamamoo’s Moonbyul.

Sandeul also discussed about the early days he knew Bangtan Boys’ Jin. It turns out there is a funny and surprising thing that happened between them when both were not yet familiar and close to each other like now. Sandeul said, “When I met Jin, that was very surprising. Around the second time we met, it was the end of the performance with many singers on stage.” Sandeul then continued, “Jin suddenly came and held my stomach. We were not even as close as we were at the first meeting. (At that time) we just said hello. Because it was only the second meeting and he held my stomach, I was surprised by what he was doing,” said Sandeul.

Next Sandeul also tried to ask Jin about his surprising attitude at the second meeting. Hilariously, Jin replied that he did it because he really wanted to do it. Jin doesn’t even realize he’s done it and he likes it so he keeps doing it. “After that, I thought, this is how Jin started friendship. Making him do it and I finally did the same thing,” said Sandeul. “Now this is a natural thing for us and we can get closer,” said Sandeul.

Meanwhile, Sandeul himself recently made his fans worry because he expressed frustration over the B1A4 situation. It is known that Jinyoung and Baro decided not to renew the contract with the agency so that it has now resigned. B1A4 left only three members who would do promotions as a group.
