In Focus: Our Favorite


What do you make out of a circle of male idols whose brotherly bond is symbolized by matching padded jackets? Answer: the "Padding Squad." This group includes SHINee's Taemin, EXO's Kai, BTS' Jimin, Ha Sungwoon, HOTSHOT's Timoteo, VIXX's Ravi and their non-celebrity friend Jung Kwonho. Yep, this bromance has been going strong for years now!

Recently, some of them even went to Cebu to go on a summer vacation! Kai, Taemin, Sungwoon, Ravi, and Timoteo are all enjoying an adventure-filled get-together on our very own shores!

Considering that they are all at the top of their careers, time doesn't make it easy for them to meet as much as normal pals do. The odds to make it happen are merely just a bonus for the septet, so they see to it that they take whatever they can get when a golden opportunity comes up. In the gallery above are the times that the Padding Squad were #friendshipgoals!

PS. Can we end all the fan wars now, please?
