LANY's PAUL KLEIN On Meeting BLACKPINK: "They Are The Nicest Girls On The Planet"
LANY and Blackpink are two of the most popular international groups in the Philippines so our worlds got rocked when a photo of the American band's frontman Paul Klein with the Korean girl group surfaced online back in April.
Blinks were super happy for their girl Rosé who previously revealed that LANY's album Malibu Nights inspired her a lot.
During our MYXclusive interview with LANY who returned to the Philippines for three sold-out shows at the Mall of Asia Arena, we found out the story behind Paul and Blackpink's viral photo which was taken backstage before the "Kill This Love" hitmakers' concert at The Forum in Los Angeles, California.
Paul was made aware by Blackpink fans that Rosé loved their music. Thankfully, he was in LA when the girls' management reached out to him. "I was able to run down to The Forum where they were playing and meet them after their soundcheck," he shared to VJ Samm.
The LANY vocalist only had nice things to say about Rosé, Jisoo, Jennie and Lisa. "They are actually the nicest girls on the planet. They're super sweet."
As for fans shipping him and Rosé after a few interactions, Paul said "We're just friends. I don't know her that well, but she's nice."
"We'll see, maybe God's got a plan," he added. We're definitely praying that their paths will cross again when LANY performs in Seoul, South Korea on August 8. In the meantime, watch the MYXclusive interview below:
