Whether it is about their favorite foods or hobbies, or even their favorite shows, the “ARMY” are always on the scene to get to know these things.

Some may think that the members of BTS would only love Korean shows. But, the truth is, their personal preferences are so diverse that they also love to watch Western materials. In fact, they revealed that one of their recommendations has taught them to learn proper English, according to Cheat Sheet.

Several members of BTS reportedly love watching Friends. These include RM, Jin, and Suga. Some of them even watched the entirety of the sitcom more than twice.

While Jin and Suga enjoyed the Jennifer Aniston-led show, RM has a more significant attachment to the hit sitcom. As reported, Friends became his tool to learn English. Reports then noted that he has become the usual “translator” for his co-members when they have tours and visits outside Korea. Since then, he has also reportedly credited the show for it.
