Long story short, famous English choreographer Matthew Bourne (we’ll get into the details about him later) posted a heart as he tweeted a video of BTS’s Jimin performing a contemporary dance routine.

The video that he posted was from the 2016 SBS Gayo Daejun performance of Jimin dancing to “Pin Up Girl” by NadanMusic.
After Jimin’s performance, NadanMusic’s music director revealed that they wanted to see Jimin dancing contemporary to a song called “Never Mind,” which is from their album Modern Dance Music Vol. 4.
While it may be common for famous celebrities and artists to show support towards BTS, this one is special because Matthew Bourne is known to be a legend in his field of work and for him to acknowledge Jimin is a true honor.
Bourne has received multiple awards and nominations such as the Laurence Olivier Award, Tony Award, and Drama Desk Award. He is also the only British director to have won the Tony Awards for the Best Direction of a Musical and Best Choreography. He in some ways is similar to BTS in that he “does not go into detail about his works because he wants the audience to have their own interpretations.”
You may know some of his popular works such as the Nutcracker! and Swan Lake.
ARMYs know just how talented Jimin is and it’s always exciting to see other people fall for his charms too!
