Apply new keywords from Bridge to Lightroom Library

Hi!
Ich have around 9000 photos organized in my Lightroom Library.

Now I'd like to start working with keywords for the photos to make searching/filtering easier, so I want to apply keywords to all my existing photos as well. I find it easier to keyword photos in Bridge but I don't know if it is possible to transfer the keywords from Bridge to the Lightroom Library. They're the identical files of course, but the keywords don't appear automatically in Lightroom after I've set them in Bridge. 

Is it possible to transfer these keywords or do I need to re-import all the photos via drag-and-drop from Bridge to Lightroom?

Thanks!

LIghtroom Classic?

You should be able to select appropriate images in Lightroom, right click and choose Metadata>Read Metadata from Files.

Try a single image as a test first.

Check your files carefully, there are some bugs between Bridge and Lightroom. Unfortunately there are several keyword namespaces and keywords can get mangled, duplicated, or not written correctly when working with both apps.
