When it comes to the world of K-Pop meeting Western music, it seems as if fans have been treated to an abundance of interactions between their favorite idols.
From music collaborations, online interactions, and more, fans just can’t seem to get enough. Recently, it seems as if that’s happened again. Fans noticed that American singer and actress Selena Gomez started following two huge K-Pop groups on Instagram.
On August 23 (KST), fans eagerly noticed that Selena Gomez went on the social media site and started following several users, two of which are none other than K-Pop groups BTS and BLACKPINK!
Many fans were surprised that Selena has only just followed BLACKPINK after their collaboration for the track “Ice Cream” gained huge success last year. For many fans, it was one of the first huge modern collaborations between the two industries, and fans just couldn’t get enough.
Fans were also excited to see BTS appear in the accounts that she is following. In the past, Selena Gomez has made no secret about how much she loves BTS on Instagram Live and even had the cutest reaction after watching the members dancing during an awards show.

The BTS members have also shown that they are huge fans of Selena Gomez in the past. During several interviews in America, especially during awards season, the members voiced their support and love for the singer. In particular, members RM and V always have nothing but praise for her, and it is adorable.
