American professional wrestler and actor John Cena has sent BTS a sweet message in their native language!
Earlier this year, John Cena confirmed that he had become a fan of BTS after accidentally discovering the group on social media. The star had drawn attention for posting photos of BTS and J-Hope on his personal Instagram account, and he later shared that he was a fan of several songs on J-Hope’s mixtape “Hope World.”
During a recent interview with U.S. news program Entertainment Tonight, BTS was asked whether they were aware of John Cena’s support and if they’d had a chance to meet him. The group members eagerly replied, “Not yet—we want to meet John. We’ve never met him.” RM and Suga revealed that they had been fans of the wrestler since childhood, and J-Hope turned to the camera with an excited smile and called out, “John Cena!”
Jimin also turned to the camera to ask, “John Cena, are you ARMY?”
Later that day, John Cena took to Twitter to post a personal video response to Jimin’s question. The star addressed BTS directly, writing in the caption, “Please forgive my inexperience with the language, but here is my answer.”
He then adorably declared in Korean, “BTS, I’m goondae [the literal Korean word for ‘army’].”
We hope BTS and John Cena get a chance to meet in person!
