A BTS member once shared he learned the language of English by watching the tv show Friends. Now BTS is all set to appear on the reunion special episode of Friends.
BTS In the Friends Reunion Special
BTS is a global sensation thanks to its amazing choreography, catching tunes, and gorgeous looks. This band is all set to achieve one more milestone in their list of achievements. BTS has conquered the USA music market and fast-food giant McDonalds. Now, BTS is going to appear in a cameo on the Friends reunion episode which will premiere on Thursday.
This pairing may appear random but this cross-cultural mix is anything but random. Kim Nam-joon, RM in the band, has shared that this show played a huge part in helping him learn English. He has shared in interviews that his mother had purchases DVDs of all the seasons in South Korea when he was a teen. He used to watch the episodes with Korean subtitles and then switch to English subtitles, in the end removing subtitles entirely. RM once told ET that Monica, Chandler, and Ross were like his English teachers from the United States. He is quite excited about the reunion special feeling as if he is friends with the real Friends.
Friends made its debut in 1994, RM was born in 1994 as well. Friends have remained famous all over the world through reruns. Fans of BTS have been going crazy with excitement since the news of their cameo on the reunion special has been announced. Ben Winston, the director of the special has attempted to lower the enthusiasm for this.
Ben has shared that he wants fans to manage their expectations since BTS will only have a small moment. Ben believes BTS is great but they appear on the special in an interview where they briefly discuss their love for Friends.
HBO Max, a section of WarnerMedia has not offered any specifics about the cameo of BTS. They released a statement saying they want fans to experience the moment without any spoilers and hence have not shared any details about guest appearances.
BTS as a Cultural Moment
BTS made its debut in 2013. All of its seven members are in their 20s. BTS adopted its name from a Korean expression which is Bangtan Sonyeondan. It means “bulletproof boy scouts.” However, as they became an international sensation, they shared BTS now also stands for Beyond The Scene. This was meant to be a nod to the individuality and empowerment theme which is seen in their music.
BTS has a very loyal and fierce following called its ARMY who are unstoppable. BTS has often been compared to the Beatles and has been in the center of world media coverage for a while now.
BTS released their new English single Butter last week. The video already has over 200 million views. The video received over 10 million views in the first 13 minutes of the video being posted. BTS members Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook, Jin, and RM will be seen performing in November at the American Music Awards.
