If you're a lover of ethnic cooking shows, you'll not want to miss an upcoming episode of the web series 'Run BTS' that is likely to feature entrepreneur Baek Jong Won with the K-pop megastars of BTS.

During the latest episode of SBS' 'Delicious Rendezvous' that was broadcast on January 13, Baek Jong-won (one of the show's starring chefs) had a surprise video call with BTS. 

The episode initially began with Baek grilling meat outdoors with featured guests Yang Se Hyung, Dongjun, Lee Ji Ah and Super Junior's Heechul, and he named some famous songs he knew. According to Allkpop, Baek hummed a line from the BTS hit 'Dynamite', but Heechul was seemingly unimpressed and wasn't sure if that was the song he was attempting to sing. 

To clarify the confusion, Baek Jong-won was then asked how familiar he was with the boy group with a question on how many members BTS has. His response was a confident "Of course there are seven." He noted, "They came out on a show I did once too." That can be confirmed as Jin and J-Hope of BTS have both featured as guests on 'Delicious Rendezvous' before.

But this time, viewers can look forward to the chef joining the full group on 'Run BTS'. Later in the aforementioned episode, 'Delicious Rendezvous' officials teased the possibility that they will collaborate in the near future. The show shared a short teaser video of Baek Jong-won's video call with BTS and left the caption, "Rendezvous with BTS, coming soon!"
