On the October 13th episode of the "Cultwo Show," Bangtan Boys, or more commonly known as BTS, appeared as guests to promote their new album titled "Wings."

Soompi reported that during the show, the hosts asked the members regarding how Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, and Jimin won the 400-meter male relay for the group, three times in a row, at the recently concluded "Idol Star Athletics Championships."

One host commented, "You must be really good at running." J-Hope answered, "I'm not sure if it was because we are good at running, or if it was because everyone else was falling down." Suga also stated, "Everyone but us fell down this time."

The hosts then discussed the hardships of non-athletes who compete in races. Suga then mentioned, "Actually, we are the models for a certain shoe brand. We were the only ones who were wearing those shoes when we ran," causing laughter to those present at the studio at his not so discreet promotion. He then jokingly said, "Are you listening, advertiser?"

BTS member Suga also explained his unique childhood nickname on the show. He said, "In elementary school, my nickname was 'slug' (min-dal-peng-ee in Korean) because my last name is Min." Jimin then quipped, "Suga is sluggish and hates moving around, but he talks a lot."

The boys also talked about their popularity and cited a fan meeting that sold out within 15 minutes. One of the members said, "We do often get asked, 'Do you realize how popular you are?' in interviews. When we hear stuff like that, we do wonder, 'Ah, are we really that popular?' I think we realize our popularity at times like these."

BTS members also mentioned Bang Si Hyuk, the CEO of their agency. The boys stated, "In the past, he liked being mentioned on broadcasts. But not too long ago, he called us over and said, 'Hey, I don't really like you guys talking about me on broadcasts.' But we think he does like it," causing another burst of laughter from the audience.
