When BTOB‘s Peniel posted a photo of him and NCT 127‘s Johnny, their friendship took many fans by surprise. Fortunately, Peniel shared how the two idols became friends.
During Peniel’s sit-down for radio show Question Mark, he revealed that his mother knew Johnny long before he did. He said, “My mom was like, ‘There’s a guy named Johnny in NCT,’ that she knows.”
His mother pointed out that Peniel already knew Johnny’s family. Peniel added, “And apparently, I’ve been to his mom’s store a couple of times before too?”
From there, Peniel took the initiative and reached out. Friendship then blossomed between him and Johnny, delighting NCTzens and Melodys.
I was like, ‘Oh really?!’ And so, yeah. Recently, I got in touch with him and got to know him.
If their families hadn’t known each other, the two might not have ever been friends. Check out Peniel sharing how the friendship between the two Chicago natives began.
