Shortly after the show, the storyboard artist introduced the K-pop stars as the “Wild Witch Gang (K-pop Royalty Edition)” and explained that she personally selected the artists to represent K-pop music and its culture.
“I still can’t believe that Dana let me get away with this, but I will always be grateful. Got to put some of my favorite artists and represent the music and culture a tiny bit.”

Aside from the resemblance of the characters to the idols, even the smallest details perfectly represented the idols, such as having their cloaks match their fandom colors.
The director/artist also tagged the personal accounts of the four idols and reposted the art using BTS Jungkook’s “Time” and Taemin’s “Move” as background audio as well.
Indeed, what a star-studded cast!
Meanwhile, K-pop fans reacted positively after hearing the news of the character-based cameo of the idols and said:
“Royalties of K-pop!”
“They will always be famous!”
“The artist really has good taste!”
“I never expected this combination but I love it!”
