BTS Captures The Heart Of Hollywood Star Terry Crews; Actor Talks About His Love For The K-Pop Band
American actor Terry Crews has a heart for boy bands and he particularly likes K-pop group BTS. Crews confessed that he really watches the group when they are on TV.
Perhaps Crews hasn't seen BTS perform live yet, but he knows really well that the Bangtan Boys are great performers. In an interview with Chicago Tribune recently, Crews talked about how he adores BTS and why.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star revealed that he is a fan of BTS. He gushed when he recalled the first time he watched BTS perform. Crews is also amazed how the group consistently tops trending topics on Twitter.
"I love BTS. The first time I saw them I was like, 'These kids are jamming!' They're top trending on Twitter every time I turn around and I checked them out when they were on TV. They put on a show!"
Crews admitted that when he was young, he might not appreciate a group that didn't sing English songs. Now, as an adult, traveling the world has changed his perspective. He explained that the learning and experience that he acquired in his travels make him appreciate diverse cultures and the things that are unfamiliar to him like K-pop.
"That's something that travel has given me -- this appreciation for different cultures and things that are not familiar to me," the former NFL player turned actor said.
When asked about the country or city he would like to see next, he replied Mongolia. The country is just a three-hour plane flight to South Korea. Perhaps, Crews can make a quick stop in Seoul to personally meet his K-pop idols.
