BTS never hid their affection for the sitcom in several interviews before. For instance, RM, who speaks fluent English, once said that his English teacher was Friends. “I have no overseas experience, but I studied English through Friends DVD that my parents bought me when I was young,” he said when he appeared on The Ellen Show.
The sitcom Friends revolves around six friends in their 20s and 30s who live in Manhattan, New York City. This upcoming reunion special episode will star all six casts, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlan, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer. Moreover, the original production staff Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane, teamed up once again for the special reunion.
