BTS‘s Jimin recently took a trip to Japan. He could’ve had the most expensive fine-dining meal ever. Instead, he chose to eat at a casual chain restaurant that sold curry. He updated fans with a photo of him contemplating the menu.
The restaurant soon began trending on Twitter after Jimin’s post. Coco Ichibanya was trended both worldwide, and in Japan.
Coco Ichibanya also quickly rose in search rankings on Japanese search portals. The portals credited the origin to Jimin.
The restaurant also had to put up a special sign to instruct customers who wanted to sit specifically where Jimin sat. They had to take a separate queue number, so as not to affect the other customers.
The queue was insane!
Fans were quick to visit the place, taking shots that replicated Jimin’s original photo.
Many even dressed up like him!
Some fans even made a replica of the moment using miniatures.
Of course, fans had to order the same thing as him.
There’s good news for international fans. Coco Ichibanya is a global chain with branches all over the world. You can easily access it in Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, America, the United Kingdom, and more! Check out a list of countries that they are available in below.
As expected of the sold-out kings, BTS!
