They then asked her how old she was. As Yeseo revealed she was a 2005 liner, members of WJSN and Brave Girls were shocked as they were all older than Yeseo by 10 or more years.

#5 VIVIZ SinB and WJSN Yeoreum

One of the funniest interactions on the show was between SinB of VIVIZ and Yeoreum of WJSN. VIVIZ members were making their debut for the second time after having been a part of the 2015 debut group GFriend. WJSN members, who are juniors to GFriend, started wondering if they would have to treat members of VIVIZ formally or informally. VIVIZ’s SinB who heard WJSN’s discussion ended up calling member Yeoreum informally on the show as SinB was heard saying, “Ya Yeoreum-ah,” to which Yeoreum reacted in an extremely exaggerated way which sent fans on a laugh riot.
