Who Is John Cena’s BTS ‘Bias?’ Here’s What the Wrestler Said While Comparing Favorite Members With James Corden
Even John Cena is a member of the BTS ARMY. Here’s what he had to say about them on The Late Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on The Late Late Show With James Corden, including who his favorite members are.
John Cena shared who his favorite BTS members are
Some know him as a wrestler, others know him as an actor, others still know him as a proud member of the BTS ARMY. On a few separate occasions, Cena supported the award-winning K-pop group and its seven members.
Cena loves an old school rap moment. So, when the host of The Late Late Show, James Corden, asked, he shared that his favorite members of the group are J-Hope and RM, both of whom are members of the BTS “rap line.”
James Corden loves Jungkook, Jimin, V, and RM
When he interviewed Max Minghella, James Corden said that his favorite members were V and Jungkook. When talking with Cena, though, the host shared that his favorite members are RM and Jungkook, citing his experience with them on the show.
He also formed a pretty special connection with Jimin during their Carpool Karaoke segment which took place a few months later. In it, Corden asked the K-pop group about their nicknames, given to them by fans. Jimin is Mochi and, after some joking, he became the Baby Mochi to James Corden’s Papa Mochi.
This wrestler is a fan of the intro tracks featuring the rappers
His time with James Corden wasn’t John Cena’s only time sharing his love for these K-pop performers. John Cena elaborated on his love of BTS and their message during his interview with Jimmy Fallon a few months later.
“I love what this band has done because they’re this massively popular thing. They’ve been so globally popular for so long, I was like, ‘OK, I should probably know about this,’” Cena said. “…There are rappers in that crew and they use on some of their Intro tracks, bookend tracks, they use… boom-bap beats and they actually rap. I was like, ‘I kinda like this, it’s great.’”
“I got interested in their music and then I got interested in what their music stood for,” he continued. “They advocate self-love, they advocate ‘Don’t be afraid of failure’, they advocate ‘You are enough.’ They are trying to shatter the stereotypical difficulties and uncomfortable situations that we go through.
“They are catering to an audience that is living, the young people. That’s why they are so popular around the world. One, they are great performers but it’s the message they send, it resonates with the people.” Cena added.
The “Dynamite” music video is now available on YouTube. Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
