The two trained under the same training agency in South Korea to become K-pop idols, but Dizon had to return home to the Philippines due to work contract issues. 

According to McDonie, she considers Dizon as her "best friend in the Philippines." She said: "We have a lot of unforgettable moments." 

She also added that Dizon always takes her around whenever she visits the country, introducing her to restaurants and her friends. 

"She takes me everywhere, like she picks me up in my hotel, she shows me all these great places and like restaurants and even like people too," McDonie shared.
