BTS is ruling the overall world and has he fan base. ARMY not only includes common people but also includes successful artists, athletes, and celebrities worldwide.
From American singer Lizzo, Filipina Actress Belle Mariano, and Indonesian content creator Arief Muhammad, they all proudly declare their love for BTS!
One of BTS’s most famous fans is English actor, writer, and producer Simon Pegg who is the co-founder of Stolen Picture but perhaps is most well-known for his roles in popular franchises such as Star Trek and Mission Impossible and cult classics like Shaun of the Dead.
He is mega-successful in the film industry. He’s also a proud father and a certified ARMY!
During a recent Instagram Live, Simon couldn’t hide his love for BTS! He talked about how he and his daughter have bonded over their mutual love for the group. They also recently watched BTS’s iconic guest appearance on the variety show Running Man.
He even sang a little bit of “Mic Drop” for a moment before completely professing his love for BTS!
While his daughter is sure to be credited for Simon’s being introduced to BTS, he has definitely become just as much an ARMY or, dare we say, maybe more than her now. He couldn’t stop praising the boys! We definitely can’t blame him. They deserve all the praise they get.
Simon Pegg: I love BTS. I think they’re great. I think those boys are so talented and hard-working… I know them from my daughter’s love of them. …They work so damn hard, and they’re so talented.
He explained that he has also been able to discover a newfound love of pop music through BTS. So, while his daughter introduced him to BTS, BTS is, in a way introducing him to even more music now.
Simon Pegg: I’ve really enjoyed getting into them and finding a love of pop which I didn’t think I had.
It seems like he might be an NCTzen too! He also shared a proud dad moment to his Instagram Stories with NCT 127‘s “Regular” as the sound.
Of course, everyone wants to know who his bias is. Well, although it had been Jimin at one time, it seems like it might actually be Suga! In April, he even shared a video of himself listening to “Daechwita!”
Simon Pegg: Yes, they’re all very pretty. I’m having a Yoongi moment right now…
While Suga seems to have stolen his heart, for now, he did reveal that when “Butter” came out, J-Hope was his bias. He also recalled his past “celebrity crush” being Jimin. Regardless, it seems like ultimately Simon is OT7! During his life, he made sure not to leave anyone out.
Simon Pegg: I had a big Jimin moment… Jin, I love. I love them, all of the boys, all of them. Jungkook, V, RM… He’s a good leader, RM.
