Our good friend Alec Benjamin has been very busy with tours. Back in August he stopped by South Korea and did a concert in Seoul.
While in Seoul he got a couple surprise visits from Eric Nam and Jimin from BTS!
In an interview, Alec Benjamin explains he saw that Jimin was a fan of his music.
I invited him to my concert because he had made a playlist online and he had 12 songs on it. And like 6 to 7 of those songs were mine. So I was really thrilled to find out that he was a fan. When I was on my way to Korea, I had no way of communicating with him, I didn’t have his phone number or anything, so I was just like, ‘Well, I’ll just tweet BTS and ask him to come.'
Jimin went to the concert and the two are now good friends.
He also sat down with Eric Nam for a podcast and interview where Eric Nam explains,
Jimin is like a legit, legit fan of yours
We can't wait to hear some possible collaborations! See what else Alec Benjamin had to say in both of the interviews below.
