Don't you just love it when you discover something new about the celebs you love? Like their hobbies, the meaning behind their Instagram account usernames, or what entertainment agency they belong to (and who their labelmates are)!

For today's Things You Absolutely Need To Know About Your Favorite Korean Celebrities, we will take a look at the stars who went to the same schools! Here you go:

1. Kang Ha Neul, Shin Hye Sun, Lee Jong Suk

Imagine being classmates with these three sought-after actors—grabe, I would definitely add "Went to the same class as Kang Ha Neul, Shin Hye Sun, and Lee Jong Suk" to my resume! In an episode of Happy Together, our Mama Hye Sun revealed that she was classmates with Jong Suk and after he transferred, Ha Neul arrived in her school. Guess where he was seated? In Jong Suk's chair! Hye Sun even said: that "He hit the jackpot." LOL!

Soompi reported that the three K-pop idols "...became homeroom buddies when BTS’ Jimin and V transferred to Korea Arts School from Busan Performing Arts School and Daegu Jaeil High School, respectively."

Look what we have here, two K-pop idols who are part of the same group and went to the same school! How cute is that? MAMAMOO's Hwasa and Wheein have been BFFs since middle school, which means that their friendship has lasted for over a decade. When they became special guests in a TV show, Hwasa said that they even auditioned together: "Wheein has never said this directly to me, but from what I could tell, Wheein and I both had this conviction about ourselves. I could see that we both thought, ‘I will make it.’ We were determined to go to Seoul and become singers. It’s not guaranteed that you will be a singer just because you move to Seoul. However, the now-director at our agency allowed us to debut together." Awww!
