Korobi was assigned to a team with Gaara in order to take out a group of bandits that were located between Suna and Konoha and Team 7 also took part in this. He is very afraid of Gaara at the start as he does not forget what Gaara used to be like.
But when Gaara was caught in a trap, he warned Korobi to get away as far as possible and when he ran into Naruto, he informed him that Gaara was captured. To this Naruto asked him why he abandoned him as he was his friend and this made Korobi wonder if Gaara was his friend and he felt guilty about leaving him behind.
They then went back to rescue Gaara and after the mission was over Korobi told Gaara that he considered him as his friend.
Korobi was quite scared and acted like a wimp in front of Gaara due to his past experience with him. He later on befriends Gaara and he becomes his first friend.
