American rock band DNCE recently sat down for an interview with "One Night of TV Entertainment" where they talked about their music and shared their thoughts about K-Pop. The band is in South Korea for a scheduled concert.

DNCE's guitarist, Jin Joo, is a native on Incheon, South Korea. According to Koreaboo, Jin Joo's dream was to be able to give a shout out to her home country while performing on stage. She was able to fulfill this dream during the band's concert in Seoul.

Lead vocalist Joe Jonas said they decided to add Jin Joo to the group after seeing how different her personality is when she performs and how she interacts with the audience.

Jin Joo moved to Los Angeles at the age of 19. Prior to being a permanent member of DNCE, Jin Joo was touring as a guitarist for artist like Jordin Sparks, Ciara and Cee Lo Green. She met Joe while touring with the Jonas Brothers in 2009.

The four-member group, best known for hits like "Cake by the Ocean" and "Toothbrush" also revealed which K-Pop artist they would like to work with in the future. DNCE chose none other than G-Dragon. Joe Jonas also added that they would like to work with "all the girl bands."

If ever DNCE collaborates with a K-Pop girl band, it wouldn't be Joe Jonas' first time. During the Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009, the Wonder Girls opened their show during several tour dates. At that time, Wonder Girls were still fresh from the huge success of their single "Nobody."

During their Seoul concert on March 22, DNCE performed to a 2,000-strong audience at the Yes24 Live Hall. The New Paper reports the members of DNCE made a dramatic entrance by coming on stage wearing Darth Vader masks and taking part in brief lightsaber Battle.

The group performed tracks such as "Naked" and "Be Mean," and also staged special tributes to late legends David Bowie and George Michael.
