Let’s Look BTS’ Funny Moments On Ellen
In 2017, BTS attended and performed in the biggest music awards, the Billboard Music Awards (BBMA), taking home trophies in the Top Social Artist category. They also attended the American Music Awards (AMA), this was their first debut in America since they were there as rookies a few years ago. BTS was called ‘the biggest boy-band on the planet’, and their album was nominated for Best Recording Package for the Grammy Awards 2019.
In addition to attending the music programs, BTS has also guested on several well-known TV shows, such as Jimmie Kimmel, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and also The Ellen Show. BTS had some funny moments during their interview with Ellen, and here they are!
For example, when Ellen asked BTS’ leader, RM, about his English skills, he said that his mother forced him to learn English by watching DVDs, and at that time, he felt like a victim of his mother’s compulsion.
Then, the next question they were asked was “did they ever hook up with one of ARMY? (Army is the name for their fans)”, and RM replied that “we are doing right now”.
Ellen wasn’t satisfied RM’s answer, so the translator also translated Ellen’s question and then, suddenly, V replied “Not”
“No” quickly, and the other members, Ellen, the translator, and the members of the audience who were ARMY laughed. As we all know, V is known for being funny and adorable. V’s funny response was recorded in this video at minutes 3:55.
Not only that, at the beginning of that video, during the introductions, when V introduces himself, he made a funny expression. Then, when J-hope introduced himself, he said “Hi, I’m your hope, You’re my hope and I’m J-Hope”, then Suga, next to him, chuckles. Finally, Jin introduced himself as ‘Worldwide Handsome’.
In 2018, they were invited to the show again, on May 25. That time, the BTS members were asked ‘do you have a girlfriend?’ and all the members got panicked looks on their faces, especially RM.
RM changed the subject, and Ellen finally talked about something else. In the middle of that conversation, the BTS members were suddenly surprised by the appearance of someone from the drawer table near RM and Ellen.
As a result, they were all so surprised that they made really startled faces. J-hope was so shocked he fell, V was so startled he jerked his legs up, and Jin was so shocked he screamed. Suga was the only one who stayed calm. And here’s the completed Video!
