New K-pop boy band XIKERS talk about how they felt being on top of the Billboard Emerging Artists chart, how much they love their fellow labelmates ATEEZ and more at KCON LA 2023.
As you guys can see, I’m a Blink. You guys did a dance cover of “Kill This Love,” right? Yeah, that was incredible to see you guys do it.
Thank you! We actually took quite a long time to prepare for it because it was a cover that’s like — it was an honor to cover Blackpink’s “Kill This Love.” And we also had our own dance break at the end. So I hope you guys enjoyed our cover with it. We worked really hard for it.
And then we’re Billboard. So you guys were No. 1 on our Emerging Artists chart, which is really cool. So tell me how it feels to be on a Billboard chart.
Yeah, it’s actually an honor to be on such a huge chart like Billboard. I mean, we’re still rookies and we’re just really thankful for every opportunity. And we’ll just keep striving and try our best.
And you’re here killing it at KCON. So tell me what’s great about being here at this event?
Sure, so like we’re really nervous to come back as XIKERS in LA for KCON. But for now, I think we’re going to burn a whole stage. So please look for it. It’s our stage. And also we prepared a special stage for roadies and kick corners. So please enjoy. Thank you.
