It seems as if the list of celebrities who are in love with BTS just seems to get longer! One of the most recent stars to publicly announce their love for the group is Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu.
In a recent interview for a new documentary called Dream On Ice 2021, Hanyu explained how much he loves BTS at the moment and how he even wants to incorporate them into his routines.
I am very into BTS now. If I put BTS into figure skating, how cool would it be?! I have been thinking a lot about that while watching.
However, this isn’t the first time that fans have noticed that Hanyu seems to be a true ARMY.
During a competition back in April, fans saw that, before he performed, Hanyu was listening to some music to prepare. Although fans couldn’t hear what he was listening to, many eagle-eyed viewers saw that, at one point, it looked like Hanyu was singing along to BTS’s 2020 hit “Dynamite.”

They also noticed that, during the same competition, he was listening to the group’s classic track “DNA” as well!

If that wasn’t enough, a few months later, another fan noticed that Hanyu really is an ARMY. While all of the other skaters were saying goodbye to the fans, Hanyu was having a dance. Yet, one move looked familiar as fans pointed out that it was the kick from “Dynamite.”
Yet, unlike a lot of BTS fans, some of the members actually know all about Hanyu because, back in 2018, Jimin and J-Hope even reacted to one of his performances!

If all of this isn’t enough proof that he is a certified ARMY, then I don’t know what is! Hopefully, BTS and Hanyu can collaborate sooner rather than later because they would no doubt create magic together.
