On the first episode of Mnet’s “New Yang Nam Show,” which aired on February 23, BTS talked about their popularity abroad.
Jang Do Yeon asked the group when they most felt how popular they are overseas. J-Hope answered, “Sometimes when we are in Garosugil (a popular shopping street in Korea), Japanese fans recognize us and that’s when I think that we really are recognized internationally.”
Jin confidently added, “I recently went to the jungle [for a variety program]. We took a boat to the filming location and fans rented boats to follow us to the shoot. That’s when I realized how popular BTS is abroad,” which garnered laughter on set.
