Woody Harrelson meets K-pop in a surprising Instagram group photo

On March 16th, Woody Harrelson’s Instagram post broke the internet as it featured an unexpected gathering of celebrities. The photo showed the actor posing alongside K-pop idols Taeyang from BIGBANG and BLACKPINK members Jennie and Lisa. That’s not all – Korean actor Park Bo Gum and Dean Phillips, a U.S. House representative from Minnesota are also present.

  • The photo left netizens puzzled and curious about what brought these stars together. And certainly, this isn’t just a simple photo op, and probably a night to remember in Seoul. Woody Harrelson’s Instagram caption hinted that the group hung out in the city. He writes, “I had the most incredible time with these young talented folks in Seoul a couple of nights ago! They were so warm and friendly I didn’t want to leave!

  • They would have hung out at THEBLACKLABEL as well, a subsidiary of YG Entertainment. This would explain Park Bo Gum’s presence, as he recently signed with the company. But the presence of Dean Phillips is still a mystery. Was he simply a fan of K-pop, or was there more to the story? Well, as of this writing, we have yet to hear from any of the sides about this random interaction!
  • But, we can say that the photo was just recently. BLACKPINK Jennie’s recently revealed that she hurt herself while working out, the reason why she has a bandage on her lower right eye. Now, this made us curious about how this interaction happened.

Netizens react to the unexpected photo

As expected, the photo sparked a lot of reactions from netizens. Some were surprised to see Woody Harrelson hanging out with K-pop stars, while others were intrigued by the presence of Dean Phillips. Taeyang’s eyebrows also caught some attention, as they appeared to have undergone a drastic change. But one thing was certain, Park Bo Gum stole the show with his stunning looks, as always.

    • “This is definitely an interesting mix”
    • “Taeyang, what happened to your eyebrows??”
    • “Why do the Americans look drunk??”
    • “Who is that other American man tho, and why is he there..?”

Hollywood x K-pop crossover in the making?

This unexpected gathering has fueled speculation about a potential collaboration between Hollywood and K-pop. With stars from both worlds coming together, it’s not hard to imagine the possibilities. It wouldn’t be the first time that K-pop artists have collaborated with Western celebrities, with BTS collaborating with Halsey and Steve Aoki, and BLACKPINK working with Lady Gaga.

  • Woody Harrelson has some background in music, so collaborating isn’t too far from sight. Harrelson may have reached out to global K-pop idols in BLACKPINK’s Jennie and Lisa, and Taeyang for some collab.
  • And let’s not leave actor Park Bo Gum out of the frame. A possible script or role could’ve been offered to the Korean actor, well, that’s not impossible. Harrelson has been known as a playwright, aside from being an actor.

  • With a lot of these speculations, well, we hope one of these comes to life. If not, well, we’re glad that Hollywood and K-pop met in this lifetime. And they had fun with their little night out!
