Blast From the Past: Celebrity Pictures During Trainee Days

The world is a pretty small place and several social networking sites prove pretty useful pointing out how many mutual friends you have with someone you just met. But think about the idol world in K-Pop and just how small it is. There are groups where one of the teammates originally was supposed to debut as a member of another group and other instances where the idols were childhood friends.
