In a recent episode of 2TZY: Hello 2021, Lia and Yuna sat down together as the “roommate duo”, and shared hilarious anecdotes about themselves and the group!

Yuna’s birthday was on December 9, and she revealed that even on her birthday, she had to work hard! As a special maknae stage collaboration, Yuna was set to perform Apink‘s “I Don’t Know” with (G)I-DLE‘s Shuhua, IZ*ONE‘s Jang Wonyoung, and Oh My Girl‘s Arin at the 2020 KBS Song Festival!

As a result of the performance, she had to practice the choreography with the other idols and stayed late to perfect the routine. After cheekily asking Lia what she did for her birthday, Yuna revealed that she ended up returning to the dorm very late because of her practice!

First of all, I’ll be honest. I had to practice the choreography for “I Don’t Know” that day, so I came home after midnight.

Lia then took over the narration, revealing that she told Yeji that she had wanted to throw a surprise party for Yuna, but the birthday girl herself was missing!

Yeji was sleeping, so I was gonna throw a party for Yuna, but Yuna came home late from practice. So it just fizzled out, but I was waiting up all night! The surprise was all fizzled out.

Since Yuna lives with me, they came to our room, and just handed her presents one by one.

—Lia

Yuna then shared how Lia was disappointed when everyone came to give their presents to Yuna, because she was still hoping to make a celebration of it!

And you were suddenly just like, “What the…?” [With] That “upset Lia” face, with a face like this. “Hey, I thought we were gonna do this together”.

—Yuna

She then concluded by sharing how they eventually did manage to have a party, well into December 10 instead!

We got together 10 minutes later and threw a birthday party on December 10!

—Yuna

Lia then revealed that she was even more upset because she prepared a cake and candles for Yuna, but they didn’t get to fully enjoy an ITZY “tradition”!

This is like a tradition. On the night of each member’s birthday, we let her blow out birthday candles even if we don’t do anything special. So we were gonna throw a party for her, and I was the one who bought the cake! I bought it in secret and hid it on the terrace…

—Lia

But all in all, Yuna was happy to celebrate her birthday with her unnies!
