South Korean music sensation BTS surprised ARMY, their fan club, around the world when they appeared to talk about their favorite movie musical moments at the 94th Academy Awards.
Titled “Favorite Film Musical with BTS,” the 30-second segment was pre-recorded as it featured all seven members of the Grammy-nominated group.
Recently, member j-Hope tested positive for COVID-19 and Jin underwent emergency surgery after injuring his left index finger.
The short clip begins with Jimin exclaiming ‘Coco’ as his favorite, followed by group leader RM calling the 2017 computer-animated fantasy film ‘a true masterpiece’.
”I watched it three times. And I cried a lot,” RM said of the film, which won two Oscars at the 2018 ceremony, including an animated feature and an original song for “Remember Me.”
V praised Pixar Animation Studios, the banner behind the film, for its filmography.
j-Hope said he was a fan of Disney Studio films.
“Disney films do a good job of stimulating emotions,” added Jin.
When j-Hope called ‘Aladdin’ his favorite musical movie, RM paid tribute to Hollywood star Will Smith who starred as Genie in the 2019 live-action adaptation of the animated film of the same name by Disney in 1992.
Smith is nominated for the Best Actor Oscar at this year’s ceremony, which is being held here at the Dolby Theatre.
BTS’s appearance came after Disney won a number of Oscars: Live-action shooting of ‘Cruella’ won the costume design trophy for veteran designer Jenny Beaven and ‘Encanto’ ‘ won Best Animated Feature.
