ITZY’s Chaeryeong recently confessed that she had been overwhelmed when she had to perform on stage with her sister Iz*One’s Chaeyeon. On the JTBC episode ‘Knowing Bros‘ that aired on May 1, ITZY appeared as a special guest. On this day, Chaeryeong shared a story about herself and her sister during a question and answer segment in which the other members of the show would have to guess the answer to Chaeryeong’s story.
During the segment, Chaeryeong shared the story of when she and her sister, Chaeyeon, were chosen as representatives of the white team and the blue team, respectively, to compete in a dance competition at a school sporting event. Chaeryeong continued, “I was chosen as the representative of the white team and when I went on stage, Chaeyeon came from the other team.”
The idol continued, “The funny thing is that we both know the dance to the same songs, so no one won and it ended in a draw.” Chaeryeong explained that it was a long time ago that she and her sister moved to that school, so not many people knew that they were sisters. Chaeryeong then explained that she had another chance to perform with her sister on stage at the ‘KBS Song Festival 2020‘.

This was a significant performance as the two sisters were able to grace the stage that they both succeeded as singers. However, Chaeryeong confessed that she had actually been overwhelmed by acting with her sister. She explained, “This was the first performance together after our debut, so I felt overwhelmed and I didn’t want to perform with her.”
The reason was that Chaeryeong had always been compared to her sister since they were young, and Chaeryeong hates when people do that. However, Chaeyeon encouraged Chaeryeong by saying, “Let’s not compete with each other, we better work together to make a good performance.” So the two sisters were able to work together and give a quality performance.
