HONG KONG — Korean pop newcomers Crayon Pop are set to make waves again after Lady Gaga announced the quintet will open for her on her upcoming North American tour.
The young Koreans shot to fame with the viral music video for "Bar Bar Bar." Their signature move for the video was alternating jumps in a straight line.
The performers, dressed in red skirts and white helmets, believe their uniqueness will go well with Lady Gaga's style.
"Just like Crayon Pop, Lady Gaga has a lot of unique performances and clothing, and I think that is very special. Our members' favorite song is "Poker Face," said Choya.
Apart from rehearsing for the tour, which opens in late June, Crayon Pop will be working on improving their English.
"We are learning and practicing English. We are preparing to show you more of our unique style," said Gummy.
Crayon Pop was in Hong Kong on Sunday to meet fans and perform.
