“Not as close as before?” — Netizens wonder if IVE’s Wonyoung & Yujin aren’t as good friends now

Speculation is buzzing among netizens regarding the closeness of IVE members Jang Wonyoung and Ahn Yujin.

A recent post on an online community forum titled, “Annyeongz seem like they’re not that close,” has captured the attention of fans.

Annyeongz” is the affectionate nickname given by fans to the friendship between Ahn Yujin and Jang Wonyoung, who both rose to fame through the idol survival show ‘Produce48‘ and were former members of the girl group IZ*ONE.

The post’s author expressed their thoughts, stating, “IVE‘s Annyeongz don’t appear as close with each other lately. As a devoted DIVE (IVE’s official fandom), I’ve heard a lot about how close and special their bond is“.

The author added, “However, it seems like Rei and Ahn Yujin are closer, while Jang Wonyoung seems somewhat distant. They appeared closer during their IZ*ONE days, and as a fan, it saddens me to see this change.”

In response, netizens shared their views:

“I’m not a fan, but it looks like this post is trying to suggest that two people who are obviously close are not.”

“Close or not, in the workplace, not everyone needs to be best friends. Sometimes, you only talk about work. They spend a lot of time together, so it’s natural that they might not click in every aspect.”

“It seems like Jang Wonyoung might be setting boundaries.”

“I’m not entirely sure. Maybe they don’t talk as much because they’re already so close. Considering Jang Wonyoung and Ahn Yujin’s personalities, it’s a possibility.”

“The dynamics change in the real world compared to school.”

“Why does it even matter? Is it such a big deal if they’re not as close as before?”
