Fans couldn't hide their excitement upon knowing that the 21-year-old actress not only knows, but also loves BTS and their music. "I never thought I'd see this but aaaaa I am glad Our precious Jungkook," one commented on Maisie's confession.
Another responded, "OH MY GOD TALENT RECOGNIZING TALENT." Some others urged Maisie to do the #IDOLCHALLENGE. The #IDOLCHALLENGE is a viral dance launched by BTS' members, which urges fans to upload their videos dancing to the group's new single "IDOL".
In the video, J-Hope wore a fedora hat while dancing on the street in Malta, Southern Europe.
BTS has broken Taylor Swift's record for the most-viewed video within 24 hours on YouTube with "IDOL" music video. The music video for "IDOL" racked up over 56 million views on the video-sharing platform within its first day of release, surpassing the 35 million views gained by the pop superstar's "Look What You Made Me Do" music video within 24 hours.
It's likely that number continues to grow and the video breaks more records along with the popularity of the dance challenge.
