In 2016, he worked on a song with Timbaland, a famous producer who has made music for artists like Justin Timberlake and Missy Elliott, for the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards. The two collaborated on the song “Body,” which Eric then performed at the award ceremony. Eric revealed the hectic schedule he had at the time, which served to make it all the more memorable.

After he met Timbaland, he shared the two of them briefly talked about music before he had to fly back to Korea. While their interaction was brief and not too deep, Eric said he will never forget it.

Both Jinjin and Kino agreed that it was an unforgettable experience, and definitely a story that he could use as bragging material.
