During the interview, the 20-year-old mixed martial arts fighter spoke up about her family relations with RM.

BTS’s leader, RM is my cousin. He’s my cousin on my dad’s side, and I always saw him during the holidays. He’s family that I’ve seen ever since I was little, but since he became such a big star, it was hard to approach him first and try to be close.
