ENHYPEN‘s Ni-Ki isn’t shy when it comes to proclaiming his love for TXT‘s Yeonjun. During a TXT & ENHYPEN Playground episode, he shared his wish to one day stand on the same stage as him
I’d like to dance with Yeonjun sunbaenim one day.
Last December, he was finally able to fulfill this dream! ENHYPEN danced with their seniors for the “Legend of K-Pop” stage in the 2021 KBS Song Festival stage.
In an interview with Weverse Magazine, he opened up about just how happy he was at the interaction. It was an incredibly special moment for him as a fan of Yeonjun.
I was so excited that what I said all that time ago became a reality.
Like a stroke of luck, the two were coincidentally right next to each other when performing BIGBANG‘s “BANG BANG BANG.”
Ni-Ki was all praise for TXT, thanking them for taking such good care of him during practice. The reality of meeting his favorite group was even better than his expectations!
I was grateful for the TXT members looking after me and keeping the atmosphere of the practices fun, and I learned a lot from seeing their passion for performing and how they deal with details.
They were able to grow closer thanks to the collaboration stage. In fact, Ni-Ki and Yeonjun were even spotted chatting together when all of the attendees gathered on stage—a dream come true for the ENHYPEN maknae!
To top off an already memorable interaction, Ni-Ki was also happy with his own performance that night.
I was really lackluster on I-LAND because I didn’t know what it means to be on stage or how important it is, but after a year of experience on the stage I think I came across as a true artist, including in my facial expressions and gestures.
