K-Pop has taken the world by storm, with bands like BTS and BLACKPINK breaking records and winning international music awards. The so-called international music awards were usually west-inclined. Awardees were mostly American and British artists. But now, the trend has changed with Asians garnering a huge fandom.

BLACKPINK performed at the MTV VMAs on August 28, 2022, becoming the first K-Pop girl group ever to do the same. The girl band performed their latest single Pink Vemon, which crossed over 200 million views on YouTube on the first week of its release. And the Maknae, Lisa won the Best K-pop Award for her single LALISA.

The singer had also uploaded a TikTok video of herself with Pink Venom playing in the back. The videos are going viral among the BLINKS (the fans of BLACKPINK). Many have asked the Pop singer to collaborate with their favorite K-Pop girl band.
Dylan O’Brien is also a BLINK
The Maze Runner and Teen Wolf actor, Dylan O’Brien revealed last year that BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky on Netflix is among his favorite shows, also adding that he loves BLACKPINK. He even asked everyone, even those who aren’t K-Pop fans to watch the documentary that shows the girl group’s rise to fame.
“Yeah, I recommend, you know. The ingenuity—especially if you don’t know BLACKPINK—that’s like a great way to get to know them. They’re awesome, I love them. They’re so talented, and they’re so cool, and they’re so nice and normal.”
O’Brien appreciated the band’s hard work and all the training they do for each performance. His bias in the four-member band is probably Lisa as he asked her to email him. Check out the video here.
It finally looks like Hollywood and the west have accepted Korean artists as many celebrities from Hollywood came forward and accepted that they support these K-Pop groups like BTS and BLACKPINK, and a few have even collaborated with them like Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and Halsey.
