K-pop idols do the 'Ganadara' challenge with Jay Park, fans say 'he is your faves fave'
Despite K-pop fandom being sour about R&B and hip hop singer Jay Park’s influence on the music industry, fans of the singer are now taking shots at trolls by saying, "Jay Park is your favorite K-pop idols favorite".
Jay Park (aka Park Jaebeom) released his first-ever collaborative single ‘Ganadara’, featuring the Nation’s singer IU. And as much as fans of the ‘Lilac’ singer hated it, the collab was a hit on the charts. ‘Ganadara’ did exceptionally well on domestic and international charts and now Park is taking it a step ahead.
Jay Park is also turning the song into a dance challenge, #GanadaraChallenge, on Instagram as he uses his influence in the K-pop industry to get famous K-pop idols to join his dance challenge. From (G)I-DLE’s Soyeon to Ateez’s Mingi, Park has a lot of connections in the industry and it shows.
K-pop idols take on the #GanadaraChallenge with Jay Park
Many famous idols from various groups are now hopping on the bandwagon and joining Park in his trending dance challenge. First, we saw (G)I-DLE’s in-house producer and rapper Soyeon dancing with Jay followed by which he released a video of himself doing the Ganadara Challenge with Vernon and Hoshi of Seventeen that had fans reeling. Jay Park also performed the dance challenge with Mijoo who was a member of Lovelyz, and which had fans wondering about Jay’s connection in the industry.
What is not a shocker to many fans is Jay Park’s friendship with GOT7’s leader JayB; both Jay Park and JayB, who have the same birth name Jaebeom, performed the #GanadaraChallenge together as seen in a video posted on Jay’s official Instagram handle - @moresojuplease. Amongst all these fun interactions with famous idols, fans are most shocked as on March 23, Jay released a video of Ateez’s rapper Mingi performing the dance challenge with him.
‘I smell something’
On one hand, some fans of Ateez found the interaction distasteful, while on the other, some thought that it was fun considering the fact that Mingi is a fan of Jay Park. Many fans joked about how the artists performing with Jay were so random that they wondered if a wild card artist like BTS’ Jungkook could be the next idol to join the trend. One fan said, “Stayc and Soyeon, seventeen and now jayb - so jay park wasn't lying when he said by himself :"I'm Your Kpop idols favorite Kpop idol." One more fan said, "Oh my god jay park's fit... he looks damn fine. thank you stylist team."
One Atiny said, "Jay park and mingi together this gotta be the worst day of my life." Another Atiny said, "WHAT!?! Isn't Jay park ine of Mkngi's favorite artists??!!" One BTS fan joked, "When jay park gets jungkook to do the #GANADARA challenge then what." One fan said, "Not days ago Jay park danced with Hoshi and Vernon he trend and now he danced with mingi from ateez he trend again." One more fan said, "I think jungkook might do ganadara challenge with jpark ( I smell something) jkjkjk."
