As you’re coming, I looked up some videos about you on V Live and I also watched your personal channel (ITZY) and I thought ‘There is no hierarchy’ between the members. That’s why I thought the teams showing great teamwork like you have something in common. I think that’s the heart of long-lasting teamwork, and as I was watching your videos I assumed that you feel very comfortable.

Then, Yeji explained to her why they look comfortable and close. Then, IU said that she didn’t know that Yeji was the leader. She thought Yeji was the youngest member. IU also asked the members, how kind of a leader is she?

Ryujin answered IU’s question first. She said:

She’s the reason why there’s no hierarchy in our team.” Ryujin also added, “Let’s become friends with each other. That’s was she does.

IU asked them the next question, “In which situation does she show her charisma as a leader?” Yuna answered it by saying:

Every time I monitor our performances, I look at her in admiration because she looks totally different when she performs on stage.

Chaeryeong added her opinion that Yeji looks furious. Everyone agrees about the differences between Yeji on-stage and off-stage.
