BTS Wrap Up Successful U.S. Tour on "Ellen"
On Nov. 27 BTS band members J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Suga, and V introduced themselves to Ellen DeGeneres during their American daytime debut on "Ellen." As one could tell from the audience's shouts, BTS won new friends as a band.. That was part of the colorful message their hit "DNA" was all about.
Leader RM shared the details of how mothers in South Korea made English mandatory viewing. His mother's gift of "Friends" on DVD felt like an imposition at first but the show became the gateway for BTS to forge new friendships in the U.S. that look likely to last.
In addition to "Ellen," their U.S. tour of stops also included appearances on James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel's talk shows.
For new fans and the semi-converted who are just K-pop curious for now, the multitude of impressions from this BTS U.S. visit have certainly garnered new interest.
