Over on Reddit, fans are talking about moments in K-pop history that they can't believe happened, ranging from specific collaborations and projects to bizarre concepts and achievements. 

Here's just some of the unexpected K-pop collabs we've been graced with over time. 

1. Big Byung: Stressed Out

How to describe this? A rap pop tune featuring GOT7's Jackson, VIXX's N and Hyuk, BTOB's Sungjae and produced by Donny and Cony of Weekly Idol fame. 

2. JYP ft. Conan O'Brien and Steven Yeun: Fire

There's so many K-pop celeb cameos in this, from Wonder Girls to TWICE and Park Jimin (and cardboard cutouts of GOT7), how did this even happen.

3. JYJ ft. Kanye West & Malik Yusef: Ayy Girl

As one Reddit user says: "What a forgotten bop".

4. Rain vs Stephen Colbert dance-off

All the way from 2008, this dance-off goes into a Dance Dance Revolution contest and there are some haircuts that need to be seen.

5. BTOB on America's Next Top Model

The models are sent out to dance BTOB's "Beep Beep" on the streets of Seoul while the idols judge. Peniel really gets to shine as the default translator too.

6. Ricky Martin ft Red Velvet's Wendy: Vente Pa' Ca

An unexpected collab and a definitely catchy tune

7. f(x) x Pet Shop Boys: What Have I Done To Deserve This

The stage outfits, the attitude, the techno beats, Monsta X's Wonho clapping along...

8. BTS' V dancing to Gangster's Paradise

In front of Coolio. This is a new level of cringe.

9. Crayon Pop & Ylvis dancing their hearts out to "Bar Bar Bar"

What does the Crayon Pop fox say?

10. Pixie Lott ft. GD & TOP

GD and TOP singing in English with British singer Pixie Lott for a Japan-only 2011 version of this song

What other unexpected K-pop moments would you add to the list?
