Recently, Jeon Hye Bin was on TVN’s Life Bar program and in it she mentioned about her holiday trip with Seo Hyun Jin back in 2017.
It’s a well known fact that Seo Hyun Jin and Jeon Hye Bin’s close friendship stemmed from drama <Another Oh Hae Young>. Although acting as love rivals in the drama, the 2 girls became close on set as both debuted around the same time through an idol group.
Even after the drama ended, the two remained close and had many gatherings together privately.
On TVN’s life Bar, Jeon Hye Bin shared that she and Seo Hyun Jin are each other’s source of strength and support when they are tired or going through difficult times. The two girls who also shared similar things like love for nature, planned and went on a month long trip together to South America and Antartica. Jeon Hye Bin said that usually on a trip, quarrels and disagreements are inevitable even among friends but she and Seo Hyun Jin did not have a single argument throughout the whole trip. And being together for 24/7 for a whole long month, they were able to share almost everything about themselves. They even share the same bed on the trip when trying to save costs. In the program, Jeon Hye Bin shared unreleased photos of her and Seo Hyun Jin during their trip to Antartica. (pics below)
Their most memorable part of the trip was when they had to sleep out in the open in the cold night of Antartica. Knowing how Seo Hyun Jin is afraid of the cold, it must be a great feat for her to do this! Pic below actually shows how they slept for the night in the open. Well done girls.
It’s wonderful to have great bosom friends in the entertainment industry and Seo Hyun Jin has just added another bestie to her growing list of close friends. She also became close to JoBoA and Lee Cho Hee after filming <Temperature of Love> together, the trio also had a short girls’ trip to Jeju island after the drama wrapped up. (pic credit:Lee Cho Hee IG) And it seems that the girls are still catching up with each other over udon noodles base on actress Lee Cho Hee’s IG updates. ^_^
We wish that Seo Hyun Jin will continue to find bosom friends whom she can share her joy and pain as she continues to work hard and bring good works to us.
