Kim Bum Confirms His Love For Popular Rookie Girl Group

Kim Sang-beom recently appeared as a guest on the show “The K-Star Next Door”. His “Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938” co-star Lee Dong Wook also sat for an interview with host Jonathan.

Lee Dong Wook and the host poked fun at Kim Sang-bum for several reasons, including the number of selfies he posts on social media. But when asked about his thoughts on his labelmates, the “Law School” chose to be honest.

Jonathan mentioned that Kim Sang-bum is the first actor to sign with Starship Entertainment through its sub-label KINGKONG by Starship. The host then asked what the “Padam Padam” star thought of Starship Entertainment’s rookie girl group IVE.

“I love IVE so much,” Kim Sang-bum admitted.

IVE debuted in December 2021 with the single EP ‘Eleven’. Since their debut, Gaeul, Yujin, Rei, Wonyoung, Liz and Leeseo have gained popularity with the 2022 single “Love Dive”. The idol group is currently promoting their Japanese single “Wave” without Rei who is on temporary hiatus.

IVE is not the only girl group that Kim Bum listens to. When asked for a song recommendation, he immediately suggested “Rewind” by TWICE.

For his part, Lee Dong Wook admitted he prefers a third-generation girl group. Lee’s song recommendation is “something cute and bright” and he suggested Red Velvet‘s “Sunny Afternoon”.

Kim Bum is not the only Starship Entertainment artist connected with “Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938”. The show’s original soundtrack song “Full Moon” is performed by MONSTA X’s main vocalist Kihyun.

“Tale of the Nine Tailed 1938” is the second season of the wildly successful 2020 series. It follows Lee Dong Wook’s Lee Yeon as he is transported to the year 1938 during the Japanese Occupation of Korea.
