Jebbies (fandom name) couldn’t keep his cool when it was revealed that Jessi would be performing at HITC in Manila. They expressed their excitement on Twitter about her inclusion in the lineup, but they were even more excited about the fact that she will be reuniting with Jackson at the festival. The majority of them hoped that the two singers would reunite to recreate their iconic NUNU NANA performance. The duo performed the song at the KBS Song Festival in 2020, and fans were blown away by their intense chemistry.
Following their performance, the NUNU NANA singer, who Jackson is said to be “good friends” with, publicly thanked him on Instagram. Her post stated:
“You knocked it out of the park tonight, Jackson baby.”
Jackson’s response was:
“That’s why I call you nununana.”
