'Stranger Things' Star Millie Bobby Brown Admits She Doesn't Know About K-Pop or BTS During Fan Chat
On Tuesday, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown took to Instagram Live to answer an array of fan questions for more than 20,000 viewers. While the 14-year-old actress answered questions ranging from the topics of Riverdale to eighth-grade math and everything in between, the more frequent inquiries she got related to the K-pop genre and one of its biggest stars, BTS. She subsequently confessed to not knowing about the hitmaking Seoul-based septet.
At first, a fan simply asked Brown if she liked K-pop music, to which she admitted, "I don't know what that is." A few minutes later, when she was asked about BTS directly, Brown replied to ask if the acronym referred to "behind the scenes." The star’s confusion then prompted her to look up the band and reach the conclusion that she might have been vaguely familiar with them. "Oh, they’re that band," she said, before attempting to remember the words to one of their songs.
While Brown had to stop her search to continue engaging with viewers, she did excite the fans who spammed her with the question by acknowledging them and BTS -- as seen in the tweet below.
