Olympic Figure Skating legend Hanyu Yuzuru is a fan of BTS

In an interview discussing his return to Dreams on Ice 2021, the legendary skater mentioned that he has been listening to BTS, especially the songs "DNA" and "Dynamite" thus revealing that even flawless looking angels can have bad taste sometimes. He also revealed that he especially enjoyed how they move (dance) and is "studying" them.

Hanyu Yuzuru won gold at the previous 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea where other k-boos skated to kpop including BTS at the exhibition, becoming only the second man in history to successfully defend his Olympic Gold/win two.

OP notes: Sorry mods, hope this is better!

It's not the same thing, but I think this is one of the only people in the world who might understand what it's like to have ARMY as your fandom. Of course the way he interacts with fans and the public has zero overlap with BTS lol.

I know this isn't exactly breaking news, but I thought it was interesting. Hanyu doesn't often talk about pop music, and he only volunteers information if he wants to.
