When Sakura came in, she pretended to be shocked but soon confessed that she expected the members to do something for her birthday. Despite that, she expressed her thanks and love for the members, stating that this was special because it was their first birthday as a group.

People stated Kim Chaewon, Sakura, and Huh Yunjin were the only members that looked close. This is most likely because all three competed on “Produce 48,” with Kim Chaewon and Huh Yunjin even performing “Into the New World” together. Sakura and Kim Chaewon are obviously close due to their time IZ*ONE together.

People claimed the girls appeared awkward with one another, with some joking that it was like the girls only became a group in December. Others stated they looked like business friends, while some noted the other girls must be nervous since Kim Chaewon, Sakura, and Huh Yunjin all have experience in the industry, especially the former two.

However, others speculated that they became awkward following Kim Garam’s middle school bullying controversy.

On the other hand, some believe they are awkward because they have yet to debut. Some compared them to first-year students. One internet user commented, “How do you expect them to be close to each other already?”
