Siblings in K-Pop

Siblings who both debut in the entertainment industry might not be such a rare case nowadays with famous siblings such as Jessica and Krystal Jung, Actor Gongmyung and NCT’s Doyoung, and Zico and Woo Tae-woon. As the the Korean entertainment industry has developed, from the first generation of entertainers until now, nearly two decades later, it’s not surprising that the industry is starting to realize the potential found in siblings, who might just have similar talents and visuals as one another, and capitalizing on those very rare sets of features. The same could be said with this particular pair of idol siblings, MADTOWN’s Heo-jun and VICTON’s Heo-chan.

The two might be in different groups, in two separate companies with different debut periods, but as most can see they are both very visually appealing and have their own unique set of skills, which might just be genetically inherited. Their charming good looks and amazing talent isn’t all they have going for them, either, as they have also previously displayed their close, tight bond as brothers on multiple occasions. From their moments together on Idol Star Athletics Competition to the outings seen on their personal Instagram posts, fans are very familiar both with their favorite idol and his respective sibling.

Would you like to know more about K-Pop’s next rising sibling duo, Heojun and Heochan? The wait is over, as we take a close look at the idol brothers, Heojun and Heochan!

Not much known to the public about Heojun and Heochan’s upbringing and childhood as siblings, which may be because both of them were trainees at the time and weren’t very active online. It’s important to note that Heochan isn’t the only member of the boy-group VICTON who has a sibling currently active in the industry. An article recently revealed that one of the other members, Seungwoo, is the younger brother of the former member from the girl-group SECRET, Han Sun-hwa. Like Heojun, Sun-hwa has also previously shown support for her younger brother’s venture into the entertainment industry.

Their Moments Together

As mentioned previously, Heojun and Heochan’s bond as brothers is very evident to fans. Even with their busy schedules, they always find time to spend with each other, whether it’s in the form of meet-ups on their time off or during schedules which involve both groups.

As seen above, Heojun and Heochan spend time with each other when they have some time off, through meetings in a cafe or going to a movie together. This seem like typical sibling behavior, but with their busy schedules it can’t be easy to balance work and finding a time that works with both their schedules. The pictures in question are sourced from their personal social media accounts, which they often use not only to post pictures of their meet-ups, but also to show support for one another’s activities such as album releases and performances.

Besides getting together on their off times, they also found time to greet each other during the Idol Star Athletics Competition, in which both of their groups competed on the same team. They were seen sitting with each other as they waited for their times to compete, but they also competed against each other in a sprint event, although in different heats. It gave viewers the opportunity to see the more competitive side to their sibling relationship, something which is very common, especially between brothers.

Last, but definitely not least, the two also make sure to greet each other backstage when their comeback promotion schedules overlap, which means getting to each other four times a week. This happened most often during VICTON’s debut promotions for their debut track, I’m Fine, which coincidentally overlapped with MADTOWN’s promotions. They commemorated their meeting backstage with a selfie that shows how close they are.
