By  | 

BTS sure had a lot of fun with James Corden!

BTS won hearts yet again with their talents as well as charming personalities when they appeared on Carpool Karaoke recently.

Carpool Karaoke is a popular corner from the CBS talk show The Late Late Show with James Corden, where world-famous stars chat with James Corden as they ride a car. BTS appeared on the corner of February 26 that received massive reactions and love from worldwide audiences.

Prior to the broadcast, the production crew of the show posted a notice video on their official SNS channel, which stated they had received more than a million tweets requesting for the group’s appearance on Carpool Karaoke.

In this corner, the BTS members talked about various topics such as how RM learned English, members’ nicknames, and relationships among the members. Having appeared in James Corden’s show multiple times in the past, the boys were extremely comfortable and also exchanged light jokes with James.

James also earned a new nickname as Papa Mochi. This is in reference to BTS member Jimin’s nickname Mochi.

The show producers also did a clever job by including subtitles for the side conversations as the viewers can get to see that BTS members are effortlessly funny. The oldest members Jin and Suga were the absolute funniest, as what they were speaking seemed like fake subs, but it was actually not.
