If there’s one thing that we have been waiting hopelessly for is the FRIENDS reunion episode. The reunion episode has a starry guest list including BTS and today, we bring you a throwback video where RM from the Korean Boy Band reveals to Ellen DeGeneres how he learned English watching the show.
RM is the leader of the boy band and revealed how the show played an important role in learning English for him.
Ellen DeGeneres asked RM how he learned English and replying to her, the BTS singer said, “My English teacher was the sitcom Friends.” He continued and said, “Back in the days, when I was like 15, 14, it was quite like a syndrome for all the Korean parents to make their kids watch Friends. I thought I was kind of like a victim at that time, but right now, I’m the lucky one, thanks to my mother. She bought me all 10 DVDs — all the seasons. So firstly, I watched them with the Korean subtitles, and then next time, I watched with the English subtitles, and then I just removed it.”
The first half of the video has RM talking about FRIENDS on the Ellen Show, take a look:
