KARA‘s Nicole and SHINee‘s Key have displayed their close friendship once again. On July 23, Nicole posted a photo on her personal Instagram account, showing her and Key locking arms and happily smiling into the camera. Both of them are captured flashing the peace sign.

“Someone I am happy to see, we appeared in the same program. Our Key-bum-bum,” she said in her post to accompany the photograph.

Although they are both wearing basic colors, the two idols brought enough brightness to the photograph with their cheerful expressions. Nicole is pretty in her button-down long-sleeved shirt while Key is casual in his striped tee and cardigan.

Fans have long known about the friendship between Nicole and Key, who are both born in 1991, along with other idols like 2AM‘s Jinwoon, MBLAQ‘s Mir and others, forming the “1991 line.” The group is known to be tight-knit and closely bonded.

Netizens who have seen the photograph remarked with “They’re both cute,” “These two people really look like they’re close,” “Which program is this from?” and other such reactions. 

Meanwhile, both KARA and SHINee are gearing up for Japan promotions.
