WATCH: Twice members listen to music of Ben&Ben and IV of Spades
It seems K-pop stars have been returning the love from their loyal Filipino fans as they tune in to music from local artists.
After folk-pop band Ben&Ben trended in a South Korean music chart this week, their song was played in an Instagram live stream of Momo, who is part of K-pop girl group Twice.
Momo played the song “Leaves” at the recommendation of fans, and once Ben&Ben caught wind of the news, they thanked Momo on social media yesterday, July 25.

During the live stream, Momo was joined by another Twice member, Sana, and they both listened to IV of Spade’s “Come Inside of My Heart” after a fan recommended it.

Ben&Ben gained attention in Korea this week after members of K-pop groups gave them recognition. NCT’s Mark Lee played “Leaves” during a live stream while Young K from Day6 called the song “really good” on Twitter.
