Teddy Riley praises TVXQ, Big Bang, & Yangpa after visiting "Inkigayo" set


On April 24th, producer Teddy Riley finally made his long-awaited visit to Korea to support his girl group, Rania. His first business stop was to drop by SBS's "Inkigayo", where he personally sat in the audience and watched Rania perform on stage. The producer commented, "My judgment was right. It was extremely moving to see my special team stand shoulder-to-shoulder with other famous K-Pop stars." After seeing TVXQ and Big Bang perform, he gave a standing ovation with the rest of the crowd and even blew whistles of acknowledgement towards the stage. Riley stated, "I've only ever heard of K-Pop through the testimonies of others, so it was moving to be able to see it directly like this. I can now see why K-Pop is so powerful and I know for sure that this phenomenon will soon reach North and South America, Europe, and the rest of the world. The performance of K-Pop is one of the best in the world." Teddy Riley later met up with TVXQ, Big Bang, and Yangpa backstage in their respective waiting rooms. While shaking hands with TVXQ, he exclaimed, "I can see why you're regarded as the best team. You can feel the energy of your style and performance by just watching it." Turning to Big Bang, he praised, "They're an amazing group that can transcend the Asian market into the global pop market." Yangpa, who he previously saw through YouTube music videos, stated, "She's so small and cute, so I was extremely surprised to see such vocal power coming from her." Teddy Riley currently has plans of joining Rania on stage on music programs, and will later be opening his own press conference. Stay tuned for more updates! [gallery] Source: Sports Chosun via Nate
