On January 23, the 8th Gaon Chart Music Awards took place where Jennie won Artist of the Year for the month of November with her solo track, “SOLO”.
When Jennie went up to the stage to accept her award, particular attention was paid to Red Velvet‘s Irene, who was seen cheering her friend on.
In contrast to everyone else who were clapping in a very normal and supportive manner, Irene was seen clapping like a seal with her hands up high in the air.
Following her very supportive applause, Irene watched Jennie deliver her speech like a proud parent.
On the same day, fans were delighted to see Jennie and Irene captured posing together in a very affectionate manner.
In the photos, they were seen making hearts and acting cute and whiny together.
Isn’t it so heartwarming to see such a close friendship between the two idols?
You can watch Irene’s enthusiastic support for Jennie in the clip below:
