Bang Si Hyuk is well-known by K-Pop fans as the founder of Bighit Music and HYBE. He has also composed, arranged, and produced several K-Pop hit songs.

Penomeco is a South Korean rapper and aside from his solo work he is also a member of Fanxy Child, a hip-hop crew that includes Crush, Dean, Millic, Staytuned, and Zico. So fas couldn’t have been more excited that he and Zico would be collaborating for the upcoming track “RINDAMAN.”

Netizens loved the addictive track.
