On a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) on popular internet site Reddit, American comedian and actor Kel Mitchell revealed to his fans that he is a fan of K-pop.
The actor, who has been active in the American entertainment industry since 1992, is best known for his roles on popular Nickelodeon shows such as All That and Keenan & Kel.
In one of his first posts on his AMA, Kel gave fans a short list of facts about himself, including that he loves olives as much as orange soda, a nod to his character from Keenan & Kel. He followed up by saying, “And I like K-pop music. Yeah! HAHAHAHA! K-pop, I don’t know what they’re saying but I like the music.”
Upon discovering Kel’s fascination with K-pop, redditors began questioning the actor on his favorite groups and songs, with one user suggesting HyunA’s “Bubble Pop”. However, in response to the comment, Kel revealed that he was a fan SM Entertainment group EXO.
Kel replid, “Bubble Pop? Hahahahhaa! Uh, I like this song called ‘Growl.’ Yeah! It’s by a group called EXO. Check the video out. It’s funny. Well, it’s not funny, but it’s dope. Dope dance moves!”
