HBO’s Euphoria met “Euphoria” by BTS’ Jungkook during the final episode of its first season, which aired Sunday night.
The Zendaya-starring show featured the track, which was originally introduced as the Wonder theme for BTS’ Love Yourself series in April 2018 and later formally released on Love Yourself: Answer last August and went on to become the South Korean group’s second of three No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart.
“Euphoria” could be heard in the background of a scene during a high school dance that featured two characters kissing, enhancing the romantic tone of the moment.
Ahead of the appearance, “Euphoria” producer and co-writer DJ Swivel hinted at the inclusion of the song in the season finale, tweeting, “So who’s watching Euphoria tonight?! ARMY, u may catch a little surprise in there.”
