James Reid is currently travelling in South Korea, amid rumors that he might be collaborating with artists in the country.
It appears that the Filipino-Australian actor-singer is there not merely for a vacation, as he's been seen with GOT7 member BamBam and singer Chancellor, as well as turned up at the office of Korean music label Starship Entertainment.
A video was posted on Instagram by 천우 MARK (@porksterr), in which both BamBam and James Reid's hands are seen.

It's not the first time Reid has been linked to boy band GOT7 – he had previously worn Mark Tuan's merchandise and collaborated with Jay B and ØZI for the song “Hello 2.0 (Legends Only)”.
As you know, Reid co-founded record label Careless Music. There was also excitement when Jeffrey Oh, CEO of Careless Music Philippines, shared a group photo featuring Reid and Filipino-American actress Liza Soberano at Korean music label Starship Entertainment.
Starship is home to K-pop groups MONSTA X and IVE.
Fans therefore speculated that Careless Music and Starship might embark on a collaboration.

Last but not least, Reid met Korean-American singer-songwriter Chancellor at his studio.

Chancellor is managed by Konnect Entertainment, which was founded by K-pop star Kang Daniel. Fans also anticipated the likelihood of a collab between Reid and Konnect.
Yahoo Philippines has reached out to Careless Music for comment.
Which of these potential collabs do you think are most likely, or most look forward to?
