K-pop fever has officially hit Hollywood. On a recent visit to Conan, Emma Stone revealed she’s “obsessed” with South Korea’s pop scene.
When asked about her latest obsessions, the Amazing Spider-Man actress quickly responded with K-pop. “It’s a global phenomenon,” she told host Conan O’Brien, before adding, “It’s beyond excellent. It’s the best thing you’ve ever seen.”
The starlet struggled to explain exactly what she loved about K-pop — a feeling most fans would probably agree with. “I don’t even know how to describe it, it’s just so addictive,” she added. Check out the clip below:
When asked what her favorite K-pop acts were, Stone picked Girls’ Generation and 2NE1, the latter girl group being the act with the highest-charting Korean album on the Billboard 200 ever when their Crush LP peaked at No. 61 on the chart last year. She added that her favorite song was 2NE1’s 2011 hit and recent Microsoft theme song “I Am the Best,” describing it as “incredible.”
If anything, Emma’s ringing endorsement could prove helpful as CL, the leader of 2NE1, continues to venture into the American music market with her first-ever English solo album planned for this year.
