During filming, whether it’s for a variety show or interview, there are usually multiple cameras rolling, and with that comes multiple angles!

In order to protect their modesty from unintentional upskirts or similar awkward situations, girl group members will place a blanket on their lap.

Alternatively, it might also be cold in the studio they’re filming in and girl groups typically wear fairly short skirts or shorts.

What about when it’s neither cold and they’re not wearing short skirts or shorts? Well, perhaps they simply enjoy the pleasant feeling of a warm fuzzy blanket! (Who doesn’t?!)
