It is not the first time when K-idols have shown interest in Indi-Pop or in Bollywood; not too long ago, the BTS member Park Jimin even mentioned watching the movie ‘3-Idiots’, during the lockdown, in his V-Live. K-Pop stars like Jackson Wang of GOT7 have often acknowledged India and shown their interest in coming to India as well.
Hoping For More Collabs Amidst Emerging Young Talents
