When NCT‘s Jaehyun sang a short snippet of Pink Sweat$‘s “Honesty” on a video call fansign event, the internet went crazy. He’s known to be an ardent fan of the singer, often recommending his songs during live streams.
다른 프사 시즈니 친구들한테도 합격 받은 재현이의 Honesty🎶 부르기 전에 짧게 한 번 불러볼게 하는 거 너무 귀엽구 ㅠ 노래하는 재현이를 앞으로도 오래오래 응원할게요!! 🥰 pic.twitter.com/5PfiVDUc6V

This was over a month ago – however, on the 20th of August, fellow NCT member, Doyoung, sent a short snippet of him covering the same song, via Dear U. Bubble.

One fan, @jaehyunzmilk on Twitter, took it upon herself to send the covers in to Pink Sweat$ himself, and received a reply back from the world-famous pop star. On the 23rd of August, she uploaded the video of Doyoung’s cover on her Instagram, and casually asked him for a collaboration, to which he replied that he was “down” for it!
Later on, she sent the clip of Jaehyun singing “Honesty” as well and the star followed up by asking her for Jaehyun’s Instagram in particular, probably as Doyoung himself does not have one yet.
Her Instagram stories of the covers were reposted by Pink Sweat$ on the day itself, and everyone thought that it had ended there. On the morning of the 24th of August however, the artist took to his official Twitter account to post an adorable edit of the covers of “Honesty” by Jaehyun and Doyoung, including all the relevant tags and hashtags!
Every cover of 'Honesty' makes me want to perform again https://t.co/Fp9kWqN1fO@NCTsmtown_127 @NCTsmtown #NCT #NCT127 #DOYOUNG #정재현 #Jaehyun #재현 #윤오 #정윤오 #แจฮยอน #ジェヒョン #郑在玹 #NCT #엔시티 #엔시티127 #도영 pic.twitter.com/zBH8JOd4qT
