James Corden brags to Prince Harry he's a BTS Army member, ecstatic fans say 'I love this man'
James Corden posted a video of him boasting about being a fan of BTS in front of Prince Harry and BTS Army is loving the support. The video is captioned, “Not sure that counts, James!” In the video, a man hosting an obstacle game for Corden and Prince Harry says, "Welcome to a military style obstacle course we got laid out for you today. Prince Harry I hear you’ve got some army experience, that right?" To this Prince Harry replies, "Yep." The host then asks Corden, "James? Yourself?" Corden then says, "Yep ahem I’m very much a member of the BTS Army." Fans of the K-pop band hailed Corden as an official member of the BTS Army after this hilarious video.
Currently, BTS Army is raging against the alleged ‘racist’ remarks made by a German radio show host who went to speak of the Grammy-nominated K-pop group in an insensitive manner. The radio host, Matthias Matuschik, almost consistently called the band a 'shitty' virus like Covid-19 and added that "hopefully there would be a vaccination against it soon". Fans said that the opinions made about the band can't be passed as personal opinions, which is what the radio station touted the show as. BTS fans are now calling Corden’s video an act of solidarity. Check out the video here.
