In a new interview with Variety, businessman Scooter Braun opened up about HYBE‘s acquisition of Ithaca Holdings earlier this year. In particular, Braun opened up about what it was like meeting BTS.
In the interview, Braun couldn’t praise BTS enough after meeting with all of the members in Seoul, remarking, “They’re great.”
They’re beyond humble, they asked really smart questions, and they’re very gracious. And when you’re in a room with them, you know there’s a reason why this is the biggest group in the world. You can just feel it.

Braun also added that, although his trip to Korea was for business, he had a lot of fun. He said, “Just to hang out with them (BTS) and ask each other questions and be supportive of each other; it was a lot of fun.”
With Braun hoping the merger can bridge the East and West, he is also open that both companies artists will be able to collaborate in the future if they would like. Are there any dream collaborations you would like to see?
