Are There Any Muslim Kpop Idols? Know About Them

Music has its own language, which leaves no space for any barriers. The popularity of Kpop has skyrocketed in recent years, and though many of us may not know the language, however, that didn’t stop us from grooving to the beats.  Now, sometimes many are intrigued to know what religion their favorite idol follows. South Korea is a land of diversity, and the majority of the population identify themselves as an atheist.

Buddhism and Christianity also play a strong influence. Among the other religions, many wonder if there is any Muslim Kpop idol. Since Kpop enjoys a massive fanbase, and international fans play a huge role in it, the presence of diverse religions is welcoming.

Manny was also known to be a child model for a long time before establishing himself in the Kpop industry as an idol.
