An American pop star who used to collaborate with BTS had a tattoo of a Korean word.
On October 13th, American electropop singer-songwriter Lauv released a photo on his Instagram account.
The released picture shows the word “matsal (crab stick)” being tattooed on Lauv’s arm. He added the caption “crab stick” and several heart emoticons to the post.
In fact, Lauv recently visited Korea and got the “crab stick” tattoo from a Korean tattooist. He even engraved a heart symbol (♡) next to the Korean word. The male singer seems to have been into Korean crab sticks so much that he even tattooed the Korean word of that food on his body.
Lauv also shared a screenshot of him searching “crab stick” in Korean on a portal site so that non-Koreans can understand the meaning of his tattoo.
The tattooist also shared a behind story about this tattoo on Instagram, saying “I didn’t do it on my own. He said he wanted to have it tattooed”, drawing laughter as he confirmed Lauv’s huge love for crab stick.
Meanwhile, Lauv took the stage as the headliner of the “Slow Life Slow Live 2022” festival held at Olympic Park’s 88 Garden in Songpa, Seoul on October 10th. After finishing his first performance in Korea in three years, the male singer left a review about his feelings, saying “I love you” in Korean.
Lauv is the pop star who sang the hit songs “Paris In The Rain” and “I Like Me Better”. In particular, “I Like Me Better” has gained more than 140 million streams on the global music platform Spotify. He is also known to have collaborated with BTS for the songs “Make It Right” and “Who”.
