It's safe to say that almost every K-pop fan is jamming to EXO's 'Ko Ko Bop' right now, but did you know that the chart-topping track was actually produced by an Australian?

Kaelyn Behr, better known as Styalz Fuego, is one of several hitmakers behind the cutting-edge reggae-EDM hybrid. The Melbourne-based producer is best known for his work with Aussie rapper 360, but his discography also includes stars like The Knocks, Silverchair's Daniel Johns, and Stan Walker.

Fuego's work has earned him some major accolades in Australia, including being named the 2012 ARIA Producer of the Year and 2013 APRA Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year.

After seeing the incredible reception to "Ko Ko Bop," Fuego took to his Facebook page on Wednesday to share his thought's on the song's overnight success and the process behind it.

It's fantastic to see more Australians making an impact in the world of K-pop!
