Homegrown band Ben&Ben is a crowd-favorite during local concerts because of their amazing musical skills and heartfelt hugot songs, but it seems the band's talent is truly meant to be adored internationally. Case in point: a handful of K-pop idols have recently listened to Ben&Ben songs, and several went on to express their love and support for the band. The nine-piece group even trended on Melon, South Korea's largest music streaming service, which means that South Korean fans were looking their songs up on the platform. So cool! Now, is it too soon to ask for a collab between the local band and these K-pop stars?
1. TWICE's Momo
2. Day6's Young K
Young K, a member of the popular K-band Day6, also expressed his admiration for the band and their song "Leaves". "It was amazing, wow," he says on a livestream, pertaining to the group's song. As a thank you, Ben&Ben said they'd also give Day6's music a listen. We love the support!
3. Red Velvet's Wendy
4. NCT's Mark
Mark Lee from NCT also recently held his own voice-only livestream on VLIVE and played "Leaves" by Ben&Ben after a lot of fans recommended the band to him and even gave them a compliment.

Mark isn't the only NCT member who chanced upon Ben&Ben and their songs. Renjun from NCT Dream had a fan recommend Ben&Ben's "Godsent" on a radio show where he was a DJ.

Fellow NCT Dream member Chenle had to sub for Renjun on his radio show, and during his stint, another fan also asked Chenle to play "Leaves" and even got to reminisce about their short visit in Manila.
