When Jenny met Billie Eilish, she welcomed her with a hug and attracted attention by leading a cheerful and sincere atmosphere throughout.

In addition to 'Zico's Artist', Billie Eilish will appear on the tvN entertainment program 'You Quiz on the Block' during her visit to Korea. Since they are in Korea not for a performance but to promote their new album, they plan to introduce their new album through various schedules.

Billie Eilish's new album 'Hit Me Hard and Soft', released on May 21st, is known as a long-running album in which all the included songs were worked on continuously. This album was designed to provide a special auditory experience that feels like watching a movie when listening to all of the songs included. The album ranked first on the UK Official Album Chart and ranked second on the US Billboard main album chart 'Billboard 200' for two consecutive weeks.

Eilish's visit to Korea this time is special in that it is not a performance but an album promotion. He has previously performed in Korea twice. Following the first performance in Korea in 2018, the second performance was held at Gocheok Sky Dome in 2022, filling about 25,000 seats.
