When it comes to one of the most covered songs in K-Pop over the past year, it has to be the track “STAY” by Justin Beiber and The Kid LAROI. Whether it was TXT, ATEEZ, or SF9‘s Dawon, the world of K-Pop seemed as obsessed with the track as most people were.
Well, it seems like The Kid LAROI has taken a trip to Korea for an upcoming concert in Seoul.
Yet, he hasn’t missed the opportunity to do some traveling and the Australian rapper was recently seen at the HYBE building. Although it might seem odd, after HYBE and Ithaca merged, it means that technically The Kid Laroi is signed under the same label as the HYBE artists.
Of course, it meant that the rapper got to meet some of the biggest names in K-Pop. As expected, one of the first idols was BTS‘s J-Hope. After the meeting, J-Hope and The Kid LAROI shared images together on social media.
It even seems like the rapper was gifted a version of J-Hope’s album Jack In The Box as he was seen flaunting it in what seemed like the HYBE cafeteria.
After their amazing cover of “STAY,” it wasn’t surprising that the rapper then went to meet TXT members Taehyun and Hueningkai.
On social media, the group even shared their own selfies and wished The Kid LAROI luck on his upcoming Seoul show.

Yet, the reason this made MOAs extra soft was back in July 2021, Taehyun tweeted the rapper and shared his desire to meet him after getting a message from Bang PD. After a year, they finally met and got to interact.
The final idols from HYBE that The Kid LAROI interacted with were Dino and Vernon from SEVENTEEN. In images posted on Instagram, the three musicians looked like true besties living their best life.
On Twitter, the group account posted colored versions of the photos with their own well wishes for the rapper.

When the images were posted, netizens couldn’t get enough of the interactions between the musicians. Of course, being under the same label, many also speculated whether The Kid LAROI might be planning something special with the idols under HYBE, whether it’s a collaboration or a special performance.
