A member of the popular South Korean K-pop boy band Monsta X has amazed fans with a cover of Imagine Dragons' "Believer" that was published on the official YouTube channel of the group's label Starship Entertainment on 11 April.
Showing intense and beautiful vocals in his version of the famous song, he got attention from not only fans, for whom he promised to make a cover of the song a long time ago, but also from Ben McKee and Daniel Platzman, the bassist and drummer of Imagine Dragons.
Ben liked the video and Daniel commented “Nice” accompanied by a flame emoticon.

Everyone is probably sick of me going on about it but I’m just so so proud of kihyun and what he’s achieved lately. His ost that he worked so hard on was charting in melon which is huge! And now his cover of believer is being recognised by non fans and even imagine dragons+— Kegg (Ash) | mbbsd 📌 (@squishykih) April 13, 2020
