Yet, she also dreamed of being a K-Pop idol herself. Recently, PinkPantheress revealed in an interview with i-D that she loves K-Pop so much that she used to be upset because she couldn’t be a K-Pop idol.

I remember I would go to bed upset each day that I knew I couldn’t be a K-Pop star.

Although there are many groups with non-Korean idols, such as BLACKSWAN, VCHA, XG, and more, today, when PinkPantheress was growing up, she thought you had to be Korean to be a K-Pop idol. So, she would cry herself to sleep, believing she had no chance.

Because, I mean, at the time, I thought, you know, you had to be Korean to be a K-Pop star. I used to cry like myself to sleep.

PinkPantheress confessed that it wasn’t just that she wasn’t Korean holding her back from being a K-Pop idol. Although she’s a skilled singer, she admitted she’s not the best dancer!

Even though I can’t perform like that. I can’t dance at all. Like I just love watching it.
