I’ve heard a lot of stories about K-Pop and its popularity throughout, but I was able to see for myself the enormous influence it has. I believe K-Pop will continue to achieve great success throughout the American and European market. I was extremely happy to see my group, Rania, performing among K-Pop’s best.”
He also revealed that he is planning to join Rania on stage soon.
