John Cena inducted himself into the BTS ARMY when he confirmed to Metro.co.uk in March that he is a huge fan of the K-pop band.
And now, he just cant stop praising the boys – especially Jung Ho-seok.
The WWE legend and actor said that RM, Jimin, V, Jungkook, Suga, J-Hope and Jin do their job so well and confirmed his bias for J-Hope hasnt changed in a new interview.
Speaking at Comic-Con to Entertainment Tonight, the 41-year-old said: When I became aware of the BTS phenomenon, it hit me by storm. I listened to their music.
I enjoy their music, J-Hope is my favourite because hes got a little bit of street cred like myself. But I really enjoy the following and the passion they create. I think thats something special.
John continued: And especially for them to be the first to take K-pop and make it global, that truly is a testament to how well they do their job, So Im just a fan of what they do and the passion that they evoke out of people. I think its really special.
Cena also joked that he was petitioning to be their secret bodyguard – which, if he wants to remain a secret, has kind of defeated the purpose of the job.
The Blockers star first sparked rumours he was a BTS fan back in March, when he shared a picture of J-Hope to Instagram with no caption (John doesnt write captions on any of his posts).
And when we got a chance to grill him about his secret love of K-pop, he told us: What started as a happy accident has turned into something wonderful. Ive been introduced to a new piece of culture, which I think is fantastic, because Im learning through social media.
Its a very rare occurrence, so Im very happy to say… yeah, screw it, Im in.
BTS have since racked up even more celebrity fans, including Shawn Mendes, Meghain Trainor and Ansel Elgort.
