Chris Pratt had nothing but praise for South Korea. He recognized the country’s phenomenal artistic achievements in film and music.
I feel like, globally, Korea is having an extraordinary moment right now. Not only in the movies but in music with a lot of really great pop bands.

Chris Pratt revealed he was becoming quite the K-Pop fan, with his favorite groups so far being BLACKPINK and NewJeans. Yet, he accidentally misspoke, and his co-star, Karen Gillan, who portrays Nebula, corrected him instantly.
I think PINKBLACK… I mean BLACKPINK was opening at Coachella which was really exciting. And NewJeans. We were listening to it, and I was like, ‘This is actually very good pop music.’ I feel like it’s exciting that there are massive cultural moments happening right now in Korea. You’ve been doing amazing things here for a long time…
