The long-awaited Friends Reunion special episode has finally arrived. While viewers got to see Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer as part of the show’s core cast, there were many additional surprises. One of them is the appearance of BTS, a Korean pop band, in the episode. RM, whose real name is Kim Nam-joon, claimed that the show was essential in his learning English.
Kim Nam-Joon is quoted as stating “When I was in elementary school, my mother purchased me the entire series on DVD. FRIENDS was essential in teaching me English, as well as teaching me valuable lessons about life and true friendship.” Following this, the complete South Korean Septet can be heard saying in unison, “We Love FRIENDS.”
David Beckham, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, James Corden, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Christina Pickles, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon, and Malala Yousafzai made cameo appearances in the Friends Reunion special episode.
The show, which debuted in 1994 and ran for a decade, was a hit during its run and has since gained cult status thanks to TV reruns and streaming services. Rachel Green was played by Jennifer Aniston, Monica Geller was performed by Courteney Cox, Phoebie Buffay was played by Lisa Kudrow, Joey Tribbiani was portrayed by Matt LeBlanc, Chandler Bing was played by Matthew Perry, and Ross Geller was played by David Schwimmer.
