An audio recording of Blackpink's Rosé talking about a song dedicated to her by Monty Macalino, the frontman of OPM band Mayonnaise, has surfaced on Twitter.
The clip was posted by the fan account @joohwangie with the caption "Rosé talking about the ‘Park Chaeyoung’ song." It did not provide any other detail, but it seems the clip was from a recent live chat of Rosé.
In the audio clip, Rosé is speaking in Korean but the clip had English subtitles.
"That Park Chaeyoung song. I did see that," Rosé said. "I think it was on the news or something. I was so surprised."
The Mayonnaise song is "박채영," which reads as Park Chaeyong to refer Rosé's Korean name. News about the song went the rounds in news outlets in Korea after the PhilSTAR L!fe feature story came out talking about how Rosé served as Macalino's muse for the new albumm and even helped him overcome a bout with depression.
Aside from coverage in online Korean sites, the story also came out in Korean television, as shown by the clip below from the morning news show at the Seoul Broadcasting System or SBS.
Macalino has been stunned and ecstatic after the extensive coverage by the Korean press, and more so after it actually reached her muse.
"Music is truly amazing," he said.
