In a memorable moment, her manager compared IU to Red Velvet’s Irene, to which IU teasingly replied, “You always talk about Red Velvet.” There have also been instances where IU’s manager recommended Red Velvet songs and openly confessed his liking for the group in IU’s vlogs.

2. GOT7’s Manager

BamBam, from the popular boy group GOT7, recently shared an amusing anecdote on his YouTube show BamBam’s House where Seulgi and Wendy themselves appeared as guests. He revealed that their manager during the early years after their debut was a huge Red Velvet fan. BamBam recounted how he once asked Red Velvet members for autographs to gift his manager.

The manager’s love for Red Velvet was so strong that the group often found themselves listening to Red Velvet songs during car rides and even covered their song “Dumb Dumb.”

3. Pentagon’s Manager

The affection for Red Velvet among K-Pop managers became more than evident during an MNET YouTube show. Pentagon’s manager, when asked about his favorite idol group, responded with unwavering loyalty to Red Velvet and specifically Irene. He reminisced about his army days and how Red Velvet’s performances alongside Irene’s advertisements were a source of motivation for him.
