#LeftRightChallenge trends as SVT, Apink's Na-eun go viral on TikTok, surprised fans say 'this can't be real'
South Korean boy band Seventeen or SVT as they are popularly known, uploaded a new video on TikTok in the wee hours of June 27 which has since gone viral on Twitter. Members Hoshi and Vernon from the 13-member band were seen grooving to their smashing hit 'Left & Right' in the video and fans are in complete awe of it. 'Left & Right' is another addition to the songs that have gone viral on the video-sharing app, joining the likes of Megan Thee Stallion's 'Savage', Aunty Hammy's 'Pew Pew Pew' and Curtis Roach's 'Bored in the House'.
Fans have submitted numerous videos under the #LeftRightChallenge and this video seemed like Hoshi and Vernon's ode to their fans. Also featuring on the video was a guest performer, Son Na-eun, from the South Korean girl band Apink, and Kpop fans were shocked to see this surprise collaboration.

"How the hell did they got Naeun to do the challenge?? I mean, are they friends or is this a one-time thing?" wrote a fan.
"Are they going to be on another variety show? because I don't know how this combo came to be," wrote another.
Another comment read, "This is so shocking Apink X Seventeen!! Especially Naeun!!"
"Nae-un with seventeen — the collab we didn't think would be real. But this made me think that she and Apink probably have more friends we don't know about," wrote another.
"Been an Apink fan for pretty long time but never even once expecting a whole Son Naeun is hanging out with seventeen members. I MEAN even if she did, I wouldn't expect Hoshi or Vernon fOR REAL this is a surprise??? Miss Naeun???????" read another tweet.
Last year SVT became the third entity in Kpop world to record first week sales of 700,000 on Hanteo Chart, with BTS and EXO being the only other artists who have achieved this feat. They surpassed that record with their new album that released earlier this week.
Just four days after the release of their seventh mini-album “Heng:garæ” on June 22, according to Hanteo Chart, the new mini-album managed to sell a total of 895,230 copies by the evening of June 25 KST. The website Soompi also reported that industry watchers are currently predicting that the mini-album may be on track to become a “million-seller.” Will Apink's fandom get onto the SVT train and act like nitro to the process of 'Heng:garæ' selling a million copies sooner?.
