It seems there’s no stopping Ben&Ben from living the dream of conquering the international scene as the indie-folk band yet again gained another fan in no less than Momo of K-Pop powerhouse Twice.
In a snippet of Momo’s VLive video shared by a fan on Twitter, the K-Pop singer can be seen swaying her left and right while listening to Ben&Ben’s “Leaves.”
According to some fans, Momo liked the song and she told Once (Twice's fans) that they have good taste in music.
Ben&Ben, in a tweet, humbly responded by simply writing: “yo thank you for listening to leaves momo!”
Fans couldn’t help but gush over Twice’s response to Ben&Ben’s tweet as the group’s official Twitter account liked the tweet.

But Momo isn’t the first K-Pop artist to become a fan of Ben&Ben.
Over the last four months, the nine-piece group caught the attention of members of various K-Pop acts including Wendy of Red Velvet, Chenle of NCT Dream, Mark of NCT 127, and Young K of Day6.
Wendy discovered Ben&Ben through a Pinoy fan who recommended the song to her after asking for a list of songs she can listen to.
“Omg their voice is so beautiful. Oh my. Thank you for your beautiful recommendation,” she said of Ben&Ben’s song “Leaves.”
Chenle of K-Pop group NCT Dream, on the other hand, played Ben&Ben’s “Leaves” when he sat in for the show of his fellow group member Renjun on Yuedong Seoul Radio.
Meanwhile, NCT 127’s Mark played “Leaves” during a live video session while Young K of Day6 said he found out about Ben&Ben song through fans who recommended the song to him.
Grateful for the support, Ben&Ben thanked Young K on Twitter, writing: “Thank u for listening to our music, young k of @day6official!”
The group has also become a trending topic in South Korea, snagging the first and second spots on the streaming platform Melon.
Since its inception in 2015, Ben&Ben has garnered various accolades from various award-giving bodies and is considered as one of the biggest OPM bands in the country right now.
The group has produced numerous hits including “Kathang Isip,” “Maybe The Night,” and “Araw-Araw.”
In 2019, the group recorded the theme song for the ABS-CBN teleserye “Make It With You” starring Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil.
