After seeing them in real life, they’re the same as on-screen. They are so pretty and shine so bright, it was hard to look straight at them.

A behind-the-scenes clip revealed that in the middle of his backstage interview, Joy and Seulgi appeared asking for photos with him.

 

Joy confessed that Heechul also instructed them to get photos with the famous gamer. Of course, he had no problem with taking selfies with his biases!

 

Faker even sang along shyly to “Red Flavor” with Joy and Seulgi as well.

 

Faker is not only a successful gamer but a successful fan too!
