Korean Boy Band BTS has become immensely popular all over the world. Their latest track ‘Butter’ has broken five different world records, crossing 100 million views in just 24 hours. BTS also ventured into the world of fast food with their collaboration with burger giant McDonald’s. Their special limited edition ‘BTS Meal’ soon sold out in many countries, including Indonesia. The band enjoys a unique popularity in India too, with their fans or BTS army going gaga. When Indian BTS fans found a video of their favourite music sensations eating Naan and paneer, they couldn’t keep calm. Take a look:
The video was originally posted in November 2019, when BTS members had travelled to New Zealand as part of a television series they were shooting. In the short clip from behind-the-scenes of the show, we see members Jimin and Jungkook. They are seen trying a creamy gravy dish as part of their meal. While the trio seem confused about the unique ‘milky Tofu‘ they were having, Indian foodies were quick to point out that it may be Paneer that the trio were trying. In another clip, BTS member J-Hope was eating Naan and curry with his hands. Check it out:

Indian fans were elated to see their favourite band members eating delicious Indian food. Comments poured in to the videos and photos that resurfaced recently. Take a look at the best reactions:
Although BTS has never performed in India, they have expressed their gratitude to their Indian fans several times. “We want to see our fans in India and show them our performances. We hope that day will come soon when this pandemic comes to an end,” they had said to NDTV in November 2020.
