Former One Direction member and solo artist Harry Styles caused a stir on social media recently when he visited a Korean restaurant in Seoul, South Korea. Styles arrived in a Carnival vehicle from Korean automaker KIA and reportedly visited the restaurant at the recommendation of K-pop group BLACKPINK, who had already paid for his meal in advance.
Styles' friendship with BLACKPINK is well known, having attended one of their concerts in Los Angeles in 2019 and admired member Jenny's performance at a Chanel party in Seoul in 2021. He's also a fan of Korean soccer player Son Heung-min, who plays for FC Tottenham in the English Premier League.
During his visit to the Korean restaurant, Styles ordered soybean paste stew to maintain his vegan lifestyle, but struggled with the spiciness of the dish. However, an employee's suggestion to grill the egg rolls served as a side dish and mix them with soy sauce and sesame oil reportedly improved the experience for Styles.
Styles seemed pleased to learn of his continued popularity in Korea, with one employee sharing that many elementary school classes in Korea had sung One Direction songs. He charmed the restaurant's employees with his wit, manners, and good looks, signing autographs and taking photos with them.
Styles is set to perform his first concert in Korea on March 20 at the KSPO DOME in Seoul as part of his "Love On" Asian tour, which was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resumed in September 2021. Fans can expect to hear popular hits like "Sign of the Times," "Lights Up," "Adore You," "Watermelon Sugar," "Kiwi," "As It Was," and "Music For a Sushi Restaurant."
Since One Direction's hiatus in 2017, Styles has focused on his solo career, releasing successful albums and earning accolades like the Album of the Year award at the 2022 Grammy Awards for his third full-length album, "Harry's House."
