On January 15, Taiwanese singer-actress Rainie Yang took to Instagram to introduce her new friend Korean-American singer, actress and designer Jessica Jung. The two were all smiles as they posed together for a series of selfies. Rainie wrote, “Made a new friend last year @jessica.syj , we often keep in touch and make time to meet up, and it’s not a one-way thing. I cherish this way of making friends the most, so I will cherish this friendship~ Luv Jessica❤️”
The two interacted further in the comments section when Jessica wrote, “Cherish our friendship 🤍 love you jiejie (older sister) 😘” to which Rainie replied, “I value our relationship too😘😘😘.”
The 38-year-old Rainie who began her showbiz career in 2000 as part of the short-lived girl group 4 in Love has made many celebrity friends over the years. Every so often, she’d post photos with bestie Michelle Chen or share reunions with former co-stars like Mike He. Meanwhile, Jessica Jung who used to be a member of the K-pop group Girls’ Generation shifted her focus to a career in China in 2022 through the reality show Sisters Who Make Waves Season 3. The 33-year-old star has appeared in other Chinese shows since then including Sounds of Summer Flowers 声声如夏花 with Rainie Yang. It’s definitely sweet to see the friendship that’s blossomed between the two ladies.
