Unless you’ve been living under rock, it’s hard to imagine anyone escaping the BTS domination that is upon us. To say that the K-Pop band have had a massive 12 months would be an understatement. After making history (and stealing the show) at the American Music Awards, just last week, they were named as the winner of the TIME 100 reader poll. Beyond their 14 million online fans, and their growing list of accolades, the celebrity members in the BTS Army have been growing as well.
After winning over everyone from Camila Cabello and John Cena, to Pete Wentz and Steve Aoki, now, they can add everyone’s favourite woke bae Terry Crews into the mix. In a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune, Crews spent some time describing how travelling had led him to love BTS:
You’re Korean, right? I love BTS. The first time I saw them I was like, “These kids are jamming!” They’re top trending on Twitter every time I turn around and I checked them out when they were on TV. They put on a show!
Would I have appreciated a group that doesn’t sing in English when I was 20? Probably not. But that’s something that travel has given me – this appreciation for different cultures and things that are not familiar to me.
