BTS’ Jang Do Yeon and Jin share experiences on how popular they are abroad During the first episode of Mnet’s “Shin Yang Nam Show,” which aired on February 23, BTS shared about their popularity abroad.
Jang Do Yeon asked the group when did they feel their utmost popularity outside the country. 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 with all humility added, “I recently went to the jungle [for a variety program]. We took a boat heading to our location shooting and fans also rented boats to follow us to the shoot. That’s when I realized how popular BTS overseas ” which garnered laughter on set.
During the broadcast, Jungkook also discussed about why he joined Big Hit Entertainment and Jimin faced embarrassing photos and footage from his past.
In the meantime, BTS is currently promoting songs from their new album “You Never Walk Alone” and has so far secured two wins on “M!Countdown” and “Show Champion.”
