Fans of YG and HYBE artists might not get along, but their idols sure do

Recently, an interaction between BTS V and BLACKPINK Lisa has made headlines in Korea. In particular, the two attended Celine’s show at Paris Fashion Week, and Lisa talked to V at this event. To address the male idol, Lisa called him “oppa” – a Korean term used by younger women towards male figures older than them. However “oppa” is only often used if said male and female have a close relationship, leading to suspicions that Lisa and V are close friends. In addition, the two’s appearance at Celine’s dinner party also drew attention.

In the past, BTS members also openly expressed their admiration for BIGBANG and referred to the 2nd gen boy group as their role model. This is not surprising because not only BTS, a lot of male idols are fans of BIGBANG.
