Fans Spot BLACKPINK’s Lisa’s Kind Gesture Towards NCT’s Taeyong At Gaon Chart Awards
So sweet of Lisa!
Gaon Chart Awards saw the top performers of the K-Pop industry gather in a night of performances, awards, and interactions last February 22 in Seoul, South Korea. The award ceremony recognized the best-selling artists for the past year.
Korean groups GOT7, EXO, BTS, and TWICE dominated the night as they brought home the grand prizes of the evening. Gaon Chart Awards also saw rookie groups NCT 127 and BLACKPINK take home “Rookie of the Year” award.
Aside from the performances and awards that evening, fans left their eyes wide open for possible interactions among idols during the event. Reaction videos of groups towards other group’s performances swarmed the internet.
However, interactions between idols were not limited to such as keen-eyed fans spotted the short but sweet interaction between NCT 127’s leader Taeyong and BLACKPINK’s Lisa.
In a video posted online, the leader of NCT 127 was seen offering his seat to member Haechan because of the lack of seats to accommodate all members.
