BTS are known by many names: Bangtan Sonyeondan, Bulletproof Boy Scouts, and affectionately “BANGTANNIES” or “Tannies” by ARMYs.

Last week, BTS‘s Jungkook officially made history at the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony.

At the opening ceremony for FIFA World Cup Qatar, he and Fahad Al Kubaisi performed the song “Dreamers,” produced by the famous Moroccan singer, songwriter, and producer RedOne. The Moroccan artist has worked with world stars such as Lady GagaShakiraEnrique IglesiasOne DirectionUsher, and many more influential artists.

A new interview clip of Katara Studios CEO Ahmed Al Baker is now going viral. The interviewer, Abdullah, a Qatari influencer, referenced ARMYs’ nickname for Jungkook, “Kookie.”

The rest of BTS was mentioned as he wondered why they didn’t join Jungkook. But the interviewer referred to them as the “other Kookies.”  

ARMYs had never heard BTS be referred to as “Kookies” before, and they couldn’t help but laugh at the new nickname for the group.

Now, the nickname “Kookies” is already catching on. So, if you see ARMYs suddenly referring to all seven BTS members as “Kookies,” don’t be alarmed! No ill intention or shade is being thrown; it’s only a new inside joke.

J-Hope was even asked about the “Kookies” during his recent live broadcast. Naturally, he thought ARMY meant Jungkook!

But considering BTS recently collaborated with Cookie Run: Kingdom, the new nickname is kind of accurate…

A previous version of the article misidentified one of the men in the interview.
