BTS’s Jimin Chooses James Corden To Be His Papa Mochi During “Carpool Karaoke”
BTS joined James Corden for the segment of “Carpool Karaoke” on February 26 KST, a month after they made a special appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform “Black Swan.” The members jammed out to their new title track “ON” as well as some other fun tunes like “Finesse (Remix) (feat. Cardi B)” by Bruno Mars and “Circles” by Post Malone.
James Corden asked what the members’ nicknames were and stated that he heard that Jimin‘s was ‘mochi’. Corden proceeded to claim that he loved a mochi, in which Jimin replied, “You papa mochi!”
