BTS A.R.M.Y. Captain John Cena Is Back, Reveals He's Including the Band On 'Playing With Fire' Soundtrack

First, the facts: actor/wrestler John Cena is a charter member of the BTS A.R.M.Y. Check the receipts. But now, the jacked double-threat star is putting his fandom where his biceps are, by announcing that he's including the BTS track "Fire" from the group's 2016 compilation album The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever on the soundtrack to his upcoming family comedy Playing With Fire.

"I’ve said before, I admire the message @bts_bighit sends thru music. @BTS_ARMY you’ll hear some familiar “Fire” in #PlayingWithFireMovie OUT FRIDAY!" Cena tweeted on Wednesday (Nov. 6).

The actor thanked the director of the film about a group of rugged firefighters who meat their match with a group of rowdy kids, Andy Fickman, for letting him place one of his favorite songs in the movie.

"Only because RM wears jorts in the video...," Cena added.

Fellow A.R.M.Y.s heaped praise on Cena for shouting out their favorite band, leaving heart-studded comments on his announcement. Check out some of the responses below.
