Before debuting as a member of BTOB, Peniel was first a trainee from JYP. He auditioned in the US 2 years ago and passed it and then pursued his training in Korea. JJ Project’s JB and JR were also trainees back then and sure they knew each other. JR and Peniel was also featured at San E’s “Delicious San E” MV together with Miss A’s Min.
Showing their closeness, Peniel tweeted to his old friends JB and JR~ (JB was the only one to reply though)

Like how idols often have their own ‘idol social group’ such as the “Chocoball” and “91’er” we already sense another one forming among the newly debuted.
