“The flashback scenes with Rue, Gia, and Leslie? Brava! They had me in tears, clapping and on the edge of my seat. And all set to Donny Hathaway’s, ‘A Song For You?’ Perfection,” said one Twitter user.
Jungkook of BTS’ song, ‘Euphoria’ appeared on HBO’s series
During a conversation at the Winter Formal between Ethan and Kat, a familiar K-Pop song sung by the BTS member, Jungkook, played in the background. The song “Euphoria” appears on BTS’ album Love Yourself: Answer and has over 75 million plays on Spotify. Fans of BTS expressed their excitement for the song’s cameo.
“[Remember] that time when Jungkook said he went on Masked Singer because he wanted to break the stereotype of people thinking BTS is only good at rapping, he wanted people to know that BTS can sing as well and today Euphoria had a television show debut,” said one Twitter user. “Our main vocal did that.”
