On February 23, 2023, a fan asked Beomgyu on Weverse whether he had met Chenle yet, to which the TXT member replied with:
"What do they call it, SNS friends? We are totally not just that. We've had more deep conversations than you think. We met and talked when we had overlapping schedules and things keke."
While it's no secret that Beomgyu is a social butterfly with friends from many groups like Stray Kids, ATEEZ, etc., the one with Chenle was quite surprising, especially since there hasn't been much interactions between the two K-pop groups.
