The dance group even shared their experiences!
While it seems impossible to ever randomly meet K-Pop idols out and about, it’s become a lot more common *even if it’s for content*.

Yet, netizens couldn’t hide their shock when a top fourth-generation male idol was spotted watching a K-Pop dance group.
Recently, the extremely talented Australia-based dance group ORBIT Dance shared a phenomenal cover of VIVIZ’s “Maniac.” Considering how talented they are, it’s not surprising that huge crowds gathered to watch them perform the iconic song.
At the end of the video, the cameraman panned to the crowd.
One eagle-eyed netizen noticed someone familiar in the crowd… and it was none other than Stray Kids‘ Bang Chan, who has recently been back home to Australia.
When the OP pointed it out on Twitter…

It instantly caught the attention of fans who couldn’t get over how happy Bang Chan looked watching the dance team.
it’s so dear to me how much he appreciates and supports other people in their artistic journeys. there’s so much love for music in him that it overflows to the point where those blessed by his presence can get a couple of drops of his love for art too. https://t.co/aQ64mqVEWP

When a fan couldn’t hide their shock about Bang Chan watching, the group account even revealed that after watching, the idol even came up to them and praised their dancing.
Although some fans were still unsure if it was really Bang Chan, netizens pointed out that the person in the video that was pointed out was wearing the exact outfit shown in Bang Chan’s recent updates from Australia.
As always, netizens love seeing K-Pop idols enjoying some free time and interacting with fans if they want. It seems like all those netizens watching were very respectful to Bang Chan, and it must’ve made him feel comfortable approaching the group and praising their dancing.
