Talk show host Conan O'Brien was left fuming after he came across the latest episode of the popular variety show 'Run BTS' where the Grammy-nominated K-pop group participates in various games every week. In the latest episode, which was a collaboration with another game show '15 Nights on a Business Trip', J-Hope aka Hobi was shown the picture of Conan and asked to identify him. While he failed to recognize who the talk show host was, in a moment of panic he blurted out 'Curtain' as the answer.

While other members of the Billboard Hot 100 topper group such as Jin and Jimin corrected him right away and were visibly disappointed at the 'Hope World' crooner not saying the right answer, Conan was not ready to let the 'Curtain' episode go.

'You guys are pretty much running the world'

In his talk show 'Conan', O'Brien started his monologue by saying that he finally has an answer to what his legacy will be. He then introduced BTS as the biggest band in the world. Speaking about 'Run BTS', this "massive variety show" of South Korea, O'Brien played the segment where BTS members are shown a picture of him and are asked to guess the name of the person.

Hobi is shown O'Brien's picture and within seconds he answers 'Curtain'. When O'Brien says "he called me a curtain," a cast member from his show replies, "It's like the whole world is wishing you well on your new endeavor and you know, we are drawing the curtain."

Conan added, "He said I was a curtain!!! I've been to Korea. I've been there! I was popular! Curtain!!! I'll get you, BTS! Oh, I'll get you good!" And then quickly adds, "And by that I mean I'll silently resent you. I have no power to do anything to you. You are gonna go on to have huge success and I am very old and on the way out, and you guys are pretty much running the world."

'Now we want RiCaprio'

O'Brien's good humor made him a talking point among the BTS ARMY as they wondered if Robert Downey Jr and Leonard DiCaprio will react next, given how Kim Tae-hyung couldn't recognize RDJ in the game and called Leonardo 'RiCaprio'. A fan said, "I wonder what will RDJ aka Ironman reaction when he found out that taehyung didn't know him (though taehyungie was trolling for sure)!" Another fan said, "Well hobi got the first and last letters of Conan’s name right...im proud of you Hobabie!" Another said, "Now we want RiCaprio!" A fan summarized Conan's take saying, "Conan reacting to Hobi calling him curtain,. Yo, but the, "and you're running the world right now." Shutout to @BTS_twt from Conan is a flex I'll take."
