The rock legends of Queen have shared their admiration for the K-pop movement.
The band held a press conference in Seoul before their show at Gocheok Sky Dome, during which they spoke about BTS and the impression they are making across the globe.
“I’ve learned about K-Pop in the UK, and we always welcome people who use their own ways to spread a new influence to this generation,” guitarist Brian May said. “I’m sure they are going to continue to do great.”
He then added: “Even we can feel just how great this [K-pop] movement is.”
Vocalist Adam Lambert also spoke about how the movement has inspired the group. He said: “K-Pop’s visuals are amazing. The visuals are more than just something fun to see. It gives us inspiration. I’ve seen so many amazing visuals from BTS.”
BTS are a South Korean boy band from Seoul. They co-write much of their music and create bold K-pop that spans across a range of different genres.
Queen is currently in South Korea for the Asian stint of their Bohemian Rhapsody tour.
