Wooyoung and Changbin have gotten especially close, and the two have become best friends. Hongjoong asked Wooyoung what he liked about Changbin, and he said “he has his charms,” and has a nice personality. He explained that Changbin has a different rap vibe from Hongjoong, to which Hongjoong agreed saying “Changbin is such a great rapper.”

The both of them agreed that all the Stray Kids members were nice and cute, and Hongjoong said it was clear “they really cared about each other.” He also expressed how they always made him feel comfortable.

When I was talking to them and working with them, there was zero uncomfortableness. Even if it was our first time seeing each other, they made me feel comfortable.

Hongjoong also mentioned he thought Bang Chan was cool, and that he was excited to be working with 3RACHA (Bang Chan, Changbin, and Han). We can’t wait to see more interactions between the two groups!
