BLACKPINK is one of the most popular bands in the world for a reason, and, apparently, Hugh Grant found that out in real-time. 

The newly professed "Blink" told Jimmy Fallon last night that he begrudgingly brought his 11-year-old daughter to the K-pop girl group's concert in London this summer when he experienced the hype in the flesh. 

"Now I am [a BLACKPINK fan], yes," he professed. "I have a daughter who dragged me to this thing and ... well, it's not automatically a grumpy 63-year-old Englishman's cup of tea, you know, K-pop."

"What was fascinating, she's a very good girl, you know, she's a very good girl at school, she's a very good girl at home, she's marvelous. She turned into a raving nutcase," he recalled. "Suddenly she's got this hammer in her hand going crazy like this, it was like a possessed child, like The Exorcist. But after an hour, I'm getting into it."

The renowned UK actor's next endeavour is a short and orange trip to the chocolate factory as an Oompa Loompa alongside Timothée Chalamet in Wonka
