The interviewer corrected John Cena’s Korean, claiming that his previous statement “Naneun gundae da. (I am army.)” was incorrect. She clarified that although “army” translates to “gundae” in Korean, BTS fans are just called “ARMY (ah-mi)” in Korea.
John Cena then impressed both the interviewer and the audience by quickly correcting himself by saying “Naneun ARMY da“!
He also confessed that he’s still a fan of J-Hope out of all of the members!
As expected of a devoted fan, John Cena continues to amaze everyone with his love for BTS! He even chose BTS’s track “Fire” for the soundtrack of his movie Playing With Fire. Even recently, he mentioned he would frequently listen to BTS while filming for Suicide Squad.
"I was just in a phase where I listened to BTS," Cena says when asked about this BTS playlist for SUICIDE SQUAD. #TCA21 pic.twitter.com/O0p6RRvnbc
