Who is James Reid? After Jay B collab, Filo star seen with GOT7’s Bambam and Starship
With K-pop going global, we are getting tons of international collaborations and fans cannot keep calm. From Thai star Mew Suppasit working with Sam Kim to DJ Shaun teaming up with Malaysian singer Yuna, multi-fans are in for a treat. It is also an exciting time for fans from the Philippines as pop star James Reid is now dipping his toes in K-pop. We first had him collaborating with GOT7’s leader Jay B on his recent release ‘Hello 2.0’ in March and now he is in South Korea hanging out with GOT7’s Bambam and visiting Starship Entertainment.
Fans were overjoyed when on July 4, we got a sneak peek into James Reid’s trip to South Korea. The CEO of his label Careless Music shared a photo of James Reid and other labelmates like idol actor Liza Soberano at Starship Entertainment’s building. With the label being home to K-pop groups like WJSN, Monsta X, IVE and Cravity, fans hope to get a collaboration of some sort. And with James Reid proving himself to be a successful GOT7 fanboy, he was also later seen with Bambam.
