Newkidd Names BTS As Their Role Models + Talks About Performing “DNA” In Front Of Them
Newkidd has shared why they think of BTS as their role models!
In a recent interview, Newkidd picked BTS as the most memorable group that they met during promotions. They commented, “Our promotional period for [our latest comeback] overlapped with BTS’s. It was an honor and a joy to be able to watch BTS rehearse and perform on stage.”
They added, “We were too nervous, so we couldn’t talk to them individually. We just greeted them a lot.”
Newkidd and BTS recently shared a special moment together when Newkidd performed a cover of BTS’s “DNA” at an award ceremony at which BTS was also present. A video of BTS reacting enthusiastically to the performance has gained much attention online.
The members of Newkidd talked about how moving it was for them to have BTS watch their performance. They explained, “Honestly, we were really nervous during that performance. Before going on stage, we said, ‘Let’s work hard and do well,’ and we were very touched because BTS gave us a thumbs-up sign and cheered for us while watching the performance.”
When explaining their reason for picking BTS as their role model, the Newkidd members said, “BTS are a good influence, and they’re spreading knowledge about Korea abroad through K-pop. We want to become artists like that as well. All [the members of BTS] are so charming. We respect them.”
