  1. When RM and J-Hope went to a Coldplay concert

Long before they met, the BTS members were fans of Coldplay. After their own 2017 Wings Tour, J-Hope and RM went to see Coldplay perform together, and J-Hope even shared a vlog, talking about how much the band’s concert inspired him.

I just watched the performance of an artist that I’ve liked since I was young, so I was able to gain energy from that. As it’s been a long time since Coldplay has had a performance, I went to watch it.

In an interview with Most Requested Live, Chris Martin was asked if he would collaborate with BTS and he said he would like to (and successfully he now has)! He also couldn’t stop talking about how highly he thinks of him, revealing he is just as much a fan of theirs as they are of his.

I love the fact that they are so huge and sing a lot in Korean. They don’t always have to sing in English. …I love them a lot, and so if the right song came along, I wouldn’t ever say no.

Fans have been speculating months before “My Universe” was announced since Chris Martin visited South Korea this year. In September, they finally released photos and videos, showing that he truly did meet with the group for the collaboration!

There was a point where I was locked in a little hotel room, was like a cell & I was like; I have no idea what’s going to happen to me, I don’t understand what anyone says, but I hope I meet BTS tomorrow, and it happened.

And we thought, it would be good to sing this with BTS because maybe we’re not supposed to be together. And it turned out to be one of the most fun things ever. I went to Korea to be with them, it’s been amazing.
