The sibling duo previously revealed that they are fans of BTS, even going so far as to bring customized U.S. Olympic Team hats to Korea as gifts for the members.
Korean ice dancers Yura Min and Alexander Gamelin both posted a photo on Instagram that they had taken with EXO backstage at the closing ceremony, along with a photo of an autographed copy of the group’s album “THE WAR: The Power of Music.” Alexander Gamelin excitedly wrote on his Instagram, “We met EXO! Dae~bak.”
The two ice dancers skated to BIGBANG and 2NE1’s “Lollipop” for their performance at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics Figure Skating Gala the night before.
