Friendships among K-pop idols are truly admirable. Given their hectic schedules, our favorite idols still make time to hang out with friends in the entertainment industry — even going beyond their groups, agencies, and fields.
As popularized by Taylor Swift herself, #SquadGoals is an aspirational term and hashtag used to describe what you’d like your group of friends to be, or what you’d like to achieve together. And we’ve stumbled upon some K-pop idols whose friendships we can definitely tag as #SquadGoals!
