Apart from the run-in, the members also opened up about numerous other things. This includes Jisoo confessing munching on ramen before she films something important. She explained that she eats ramen so that her cheeks puff up a little. "I have a thin face, but the other members have rounder cheeks, and I want to look cute like that too. That’s why, whenever I have to film something important, I eat ramen beforehand so that my face swells up a bit," she said. "The other members all have fuller cheeks than I do, which makes them look cute," she added. 

Meanwhile, Jennie revealed the story behind her name. She revealed that her real name is Jennie and her mother wanted to name her that because she was a fan of Lee Jung Jae. "My mom is a fan of Lee Jung Jae, and he played a character named Jae Hee in the drama ‘Hourglass.’ Because of that, she decided that if she had a son, she wanted to name him Jae Hee, but she ended up giving birth to a daughter instead. So she decided to name me Jennie because it sounded similar to Jae Hee," she revealed.
