An SBS production team member is surprised at BTS's global popularity once again after an unexpected interview with a restaurant worker in Qatar

A SBS production team member became surprised at BTS's global popularity once again after an unexpected interview with a restaurant worker in Qatar.

Recently, one SBS production team member was eating at a restaurant in Qatar when an unexpected event led him to realize just how popular BTS really is. On an online community forum, one netizen created a post titled, "Even a SBS production team member was shocked at BTS's popularity in Qatar. Loll." Here, the netizen explained the situation of the video that had been uploaded online, writing, "A [SBS] production team member was eating, when a restaurant worker, who didn't know [she] was talking to a Korean broadcast team, asked them if they were Korean. They then talked about BTS, and she asked them if they know Jungkook is currently in Qatar. The production team member then asked if BTS is popular in Qatar, to which the worker stated that BTS is no joke."

The netizen then added screenshots from moments in the video, as shown below. The SBS production team member expressed surprise at just how great of an influence BTS has worldwide, as well as the group's unbelievably widespread popularity. 

Netizens commented:

"BTS is really responsible for letting Korea be known to the world."


"This is so real... When I went to Los Angeles, a lot of foreigners asked me if I was Korean and when I said 'yes, I'm Korean', they asked me if I know BTS. LOLL."


"But if you go overseas, everyone is like that for real. Lolll. Only people from our country [Korea] are like 'why them?!' but if you go overseas, everyone views BTS positively."


"When I went to Turkey last year, they talked about 'Squid Game' a lot."


"Even foreigners who don't know Korean singers all know BTS. Seriously, BTS were made fun of for their group name when they debuted, but I am so happy they ended up well."


"When I was eating in Spain, a couple sitting next to me talked to me first and asked me 'do you know BTS?' "


"So proud."


"The world is divided into before and after BTS.”


"Don't send them to the army, please."

One must be live under the rock if they never heard about BTS. BTS worldwide fame is Undeniable. It’s sad that their own country and Korean media always trying to downplay their achievements and won’t give the recognition they deserves.. Don’t worry Bangtan, You have ARMY 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
