Justin Timberlake might not know who BTS are yet, but he might soon.
The seven-member K-pop boyband launched the first ever K-pop emoji on Twitter on Thursday as part of a contest for their fans.
The emoji features a bulletproof vest with the band’s initials “BTS” on it. The band’s Korean name translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts.”
While the emoji trended along with the Korean hashtag #방탄소년단 on Twitter, little did anyone expect Hollywood celebrities to pick up on it too.
Judging from the tweets from Justin Timberlake and Kate Beckinsale, it looks like these celebs have mistaken the band’s emoji as one that represents the acronym for “behind the scenes.”
It might be a case of the mistaken emoji, but we don’t think BTS mind the extra love from JT and Beckinsale.
