And Eric Nam fondly picked his iconic close friend, Jessi! Citing her determination and perseverance as being a major factor, he then gushed over how much she’s managed to achieve in 2020!

In 2020? Jessi. It’s Jessi. I mean, obviously, she’s been working at it forever. But, I think this year, it was like a combination of like all the incredible things she’s been doing, and all the efforts she’s been putting in. All the TV, all the different ways that she’s been working really hard. [It] All kinda paid off and with that right song and that right promo…It was like, perfect.

Everything felt like perfect timing; it fit her. Everything about her persona and her personality on stage… I just feel like it just connected with people so so well.

—Eric Nam

He then finally expressed how proud and happy he was for all that she’s worked so hard for!

And so, I’m so happy for her, and like, she’s just killin’ it. So I think it’s Jessi.

—Eric Nam

And it’s true, Jessi’s had such an incredible year! With her song “NUNU NANA” being a great success…

To her many variety show appearances…
