RM's English is criticized by The Times, article also questions their masculinity
London’s The Times newspaper reported on BTS's arrival in London for two shows on October 9 and 10 and criticised the English-language skills of RM.
The article said RM’s use of English language was characterised by “his occasionally baffling syntax gives the impression he is channelling Joey rather than Chandler”. The article was referring to two Friends characters: the dim-witted Joey Tribbiani and the intelligent Chandler Bing.
The article also questioned the band members’ masculinity – “When the boys dance in their T-shirts, there is never a glimpse of abs; there are leather trousers but no crotch-grabbing or pelvis-grinding” – and asked why they weren’t in relationships with women despite being megastars.
