Stray Kids’ Felix Finally Responds To BTS Jimin’s Shout Out In The Best Way Possible
Fans of both Stray Kids and BTS have been enjoying the indirect interactions between the two groups lately. In the past, fans were thrilled to find out Jungkook and Bang Chan hung out with other members of the 97-liners friendship.
Recently, it’s interactions between Felix and Jimin that have fans’ hearts racing!
Around a week ago, Jimin appeared on Pixid‘s “Imposter” series, a show where an “outsider” is put into a group of people and must try to fit in with them. K-Pop idols have appeared on the show, with stars like Key having to go undercover into a group of fans.
Jimin did something similar and entered a group of fans living outside South Korea’s capital, Seoul.
When Jimin targeted one of the fans in his effort to fit in, she revealed that she was a fan of Stray Kids and proved her love for “Yongbok,” Felix’s Korean name.

On top of dancing a little bit to “Manic,” Jimin ended up giving a “shout-out” to Felix, saying, “Yongbok-nim, I’m not taking her from you… She left home, so I’m just taking her back for a bit. Please be understanding.”
