Dawn Bennet is the New Zealand Ambassador to Korea, but netizens now might know her better as a high-profile BTS fan. And the news came to light only thanks to Jam Republic, the fan-favorite dance crew from Mnet’s Street Woman Fighter 2!

Recently, the members of Jam Republic visited the New Zealand Embassy in Korea at the invitation of Bennett. The dance crew has a special connection with the country as members Kirsten, Ling, and Emma are all from New Zealand. The team also used New Zealand as a setting for their Mega Crew Mission on the Mnet show, which received much positive attention from viewers.

As a gracious host, Dawn Bennet welcomed the crew members with snacks from New Zealand as they got chatting about various topics, including K-Pop. Bennett proved that she was a dedicated fan of Jam Republic as she mentioned watching some of the dance challenges the members filmed with singers like Taeyang and TXT’s Hueningkai.

However, her proper K-Pop fan side came out only after one of the members asked, “Do you like K-Pop?” and Bennet confessed that she is a “big fan” of BTS.

In fact, she also revealed her biased member to be Suga. The diplomat then proceeded to show her favorite move by the rapper, imitating his part in the song “Dope.”

The clip has created quite some frenzy among BTS fans, who are happy to see such genuine appreciation for the group from someone of Bennet’s stature.
