Perhaps this explains how American pop diva Lady Gaga ended up having Crayon Pop as her opening act in her recent tour.  She revealed her Korean best friend on her Instagram page on Thursday.

In the black and white photo, Lady Gaga poses on the far right with three men wearing sunglasses, and her Korean friend known only by her first name Bo-kyung. Bo-kyung is smiling and wearing a dark beanie over her long hair.

The singer first mentioned Bo-kyung during her latest tour in Korea. On the second day of the AIA Real Life: Now Festival 2014 at Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul in August, the singer spoke about the friend with tears in her eyes.

She said Bo-kyung, who had been adopted to the U.S., had been her best friend since she was four years old, and that she thanked Korea for letting her meet Bo-kyung.

Gaga is on a world tour titled “ArtRave: the Artpop Ball” to coincide with her fourth album “Artpop.”
