Psy had nothing but great compliments for hoobae BTS.

At the press conference for his comeback on May 10, Psy was asked to give advice to BTS and KARD who are gaining tremendous attention and success overseas. 

Psy responded, "I'm especially more proud of BTS. They are incredibly amazing." He continued to praise the boy group, saying, "The way I entered the international market was pretty unique and they are a unique case too. In a way, I feel like the people who did not intend to do so bring unexpected results. They are gaining great reaction overseas. I believe they're also attending 'Billboard Music Awards'.'

He continued, "Of course, all hoobaes work hard but I ran into them during a music show rehearsal when I was promoting 'Daddy'. They worked really hard to the point where it felt like their bones will break off from dancing. They are worthy of close attention and I think they will continue to be."

Psy jokingly added, "I can't give them any advice because unlike them, I have absolutely no visual. All I want to tell them is that no matter how long or short they go, they've already achieved an amazing score as an Asian artist so I want to tell them to not feel pressured."

No one cares

TBH i think that Psy and BTS are different cases. Psy went from 0 to 100 (worldwide speaking) with a funny and viral song, but i don´t see it keeping that hype for long, it will be hard. BTS are going up consistently, they aren`t as viral as Gangnam Style oc, but since is the group and not the song what it´s gaining recognition, i can see them going forward. No matter what, he gave great advices.

I had flashbacks of Taehyung dancing to 'Daddy' during the encore win performance of Psy in Inkigayo. Lol.

"the people who do not intend to do so bring unexpected results"- this is so accurate for both PSY and BTS. both PSY and BTS weren't popular in their starting years and probably expected their songs to be hit especially bts who were expecting a lot from their debut album but it flopped pretty hard and then they didn't care abt the results later especially with Wings, they were not expecting it to blow up especially in America. Likewise PSY didn't expect Gangam Style to be a phenomenon all over the world. Kudos to both PSY and BTS for achieving a huge success in America and all over the world! :)

I think, One of the reasons that popular korea wave in Asia...The height is higher and large body~18 years~28 years Man, Average heightS, KOREA - 5 feet 9inch (176cm), CHINA - 5 feet 2 (165cm), JAPAN - 5 feet 4.5inch (165.5cm), Thailand,Vietnam Etc. Southeast Asia - 5 feet 2.5 inch (159.5cm)

Why do I keep seeing this comment. I'm a Korean-American male but seeing this comment over and over is just embarrassing because it feels like another Korean trying to show off or something. Height looks very different in videos so it's probably not the reason why Kpop got popular. It was probably the sync dancing and general-pop sound to it.

Jamlessfordays99 TWICE2015 Thursday, May 11, 2017

Look who's talking honey. You're saying ARMY and BTS are shnot? Take a look at yourself. How sweet that you made the effort to try to comment. I'm a ONCE as well as an ARMY, and honestly people like you bring shame to the fandom. How old are you to keep doing immature antics like this? Twelve? Quit coming for BTS when you're just salty yourself. I'm proud of both groups and that they both have come to achieve so much. ONCES can focus on TWICE's comeback and ARMY can focus on the BBMAs ok? ok.

yoonjihoo TWICE2015 Thursday, May 11, 2017

Haha.. I want to laugh when you said this.. Ouh.. Please realize.. Who are more sh** when, someone bad mouthing to someone else..
