BTS and BLACKPINK have achieved amazing and unimaginable success for many, what does PSY think about these K-Pop groups?
PSY had a great success in the world 10 years ago and knows how difficult it is to reach a general audience, which is why he praises BTS and BLACKPINK who have worked hard in music to achieve the great global success they have now.
In 2012 PSY literally had the whole world dancing with his song 'Gangnam Style'. This was one of the first K-Pop tracks to break records on YouTube and become hugely popular almost everywhere in the world. This hit was played on all radio stations and had millions and millions of views.
After this huge success, PSY still drew attention with other songs and even collaborated with international stars. This soloist achieved a great push for Korean pop music since then. In 2013, BTS debuted, a group with dreams and goals just like many others and that today dominates the music industry internationally.
The great work and effort of Bangtan Sonyeondan has placed the group as one of the most popular and relevant in Korea and around the world. This is the same with BLACKPINK, although this girl group came to the world in 2016, but since they stepped on the stage, they stole all the attention in the world.
So what does PSY think about BTS and BLACKPINK? There is a lot that the singer says about both groups and how their work is very different from his.
What does PSY think of BTS and BLACKPINK? The singer praises the work of both K-Pop groups
PSY thinks that BLACKPINK and BTS are somewhat opposite to him, not because they don't work as hard as the singer does, but because their music has a bigger purpose.

BTS have achieved a personal unfinished dream of mine, and I remember sending them a big round of applause with my whole body
