NCT 127 Call Justin Bieber 'A Great Model' to Follow: Watch

NCT 127 dropped by the SiriusXM studios on Monday (April 22) to chat with the Morning Mash Up hosts about their love for Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and more.

When the hosts turned the subject to the Biebs, band member Mark explained why the pop star has been such an inspiration to him. “Before I even went in-depth in his music, I just like that he started off at a young age,” the K-pop star said. “I started off at a young age as well, and so having that relation got me to gravitate towards his music. And then afterwards, I realized that his music was very good as well, and his vocals are something that I admire a lot. So everything put together, I just feel like he was a great model that I can always keep.”

NCT’s forthcoming EP, We Are Superhuman, is set to be released May 24 via SM Entertainment. Check out more of their interview, including Doyoung’s arresting cover of Grande’s “Breathin,” in the videos below.
