PSY speaks highly of BTS and their overseas fame in recent interview
PSY recently spoke about BTS and K.A.R.D in interviews prior to the release of his latest album, 4 X 2 = 8. Both the groups and PSY have achieved some impressive recognition overseas, and in his opinion, the groups deserve it.
He started off by stating that “BTS are very popular abroad. It is remarkable.” In regards to receiving an influx of fans overseas, PSY is definitely an expert with the success of “Gangnam Style”. He said that “I am a strange success story and so is BTS. It seems like the artists who people don’t expect to receive these sorts of results end up growing into widely recognized groups.”
He reminisced about seeing the boys at music programs around their debut and is proud of how hard they’ve worked and how far they’ve come so far. He gave one final tidbit of advice to the group; ““I want to tell them, that regardless of how long they promote overseas, to not feel burdened. They’ve already established that they are artists worthy of recognition in Asia.”
PSY just dropped his 8th full length album, 4 X 2 = 8, featuring some of the biggest names in the industry.
