Now BTS have once again proven their global impact by making an unexpected cameo in an independent Filipino film, Broken Blooms.
Broken Blooms depicts the story of “a relationship that bloomed during the pandemic.”
Director Louie Ignacio believes the film can “resonate with audiences across the globe” because of its heartwarming relatability.
In their [the characters] poor community, life is filled with so many difficulties. But solidarity and warmth among members are evident. And that is what makes the film universal, that is what makes the film resonate with audiences across the globe.
— Louie Ignacio
The incredible cast includes Jeric Gonzales, Therese Malvar, Royce Cabrera, Jaclyn Jose, and more. Because of both the phenomenal acting and storytelling, the cast and film have already won several awards at different international film festivals.
And BTS’s ARMY were surprised to see that Broken Blooms mentioned Suga in one of the scenes included in the film’s trailer, which also featured several BTS posters.
SUGA is mentioned in "Broken Blooms" a Filipino movie trailer.
"You keep on (saying) SUGA, SUGA!
There are more pictures of these Korean men than our own!"

The scene seems to reference how one of the characters, like many K-Pop fans, decorates their walls with posters of their favorite group and talks about them enough that their family can even know their bias’s name.
There is certainly no denying BTS’s global impact.
