Well, it looks like the LINE FRIENDS x BTS BT21 character KOYA, created by RM, takes after their dad!

It’s so often that celebrities are seen rocking KOYA merchandise. Who doesn’t love this sleepy nature-loving koala?


One of the most iconic and surprising KOYA appearances was at an Ariana Grande meet and greet. Long before the actress and singer ever had joined BTS at HYBE, a fan of both artists gave her a KOYA headband which she proudly accepted and wore. She even told her that she is an ARMY, saying she needs a BT21 headband!

Of course, BTS’s bestie loves representing too! Halsey shared a photo on Instagram Stories, wearing a KOYA towel.

Most recently, their newest friend Megan Thee Stallion shared that she finally met the group after their “Butter” remix collab was released.

Additionally, she was gifted a “Baby KOYA” plush, and it even matched her nails! If this isn’t the cutest thing, what is?
