Whether it's Korean cuisine or K-Dramas, the obsession with all things Korean is showing no signs of stopping. South Korean boy band BTS is also one such K-pop singing sensation that has an incredible fan following across the world. Their songs top global music charts for weeks at end, raking in millions of views on social media. But can you imagine the BTS fandom spreading so much that even a restaurant joined in the fun? It all started when a video of the members of the band surfaced online. They could be seen enjoying some delightful Mexican food in the short clip that has now gone viral. Take a look:
In the clip, the seven-member boy band was taking a break from their shoot schedule and enjoying some Mexican burrito bowls. BTS member Jungkook was quite curious to know about the burrito bowl, and he asked in the video, "How do we eat this?" Then, he asked the name of the delicious dish. "What is this, Chicotle," he asked referring to the Mexican restaurant 'Chipotle' but mispronouncing it as 'Chicotle' instead.
The Mexican restaurant was quick to observe this sweet faux pas in the BTS video. They changed their name to 'Chicotle' on Twitter and then wrote a post to notify the BTS fans about this funny moment. Take a look:
