Walt Disney Television/Paula LoboJust under 3,700 people — some of whom had been camped out for days — crammed themselves into Rumsey Playfield in New York City’s Central Park Wednesday morning to watch K-pop superstars BTS kick off Good Morning America‘s Summer Concert Series.
When ABC’s Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts asked BTS about being the first group since The Beatles to score three #1 albums in a year, they were suitably humble.
“We’re all fanboys of [the] Beatles, of course. I mean, who is not?” said BTS member RM. “We feel so honored to be with the greatest names in [the] music industry.”
Explaining what “Boy with Luv” is about, RM said, “It’s about finding…joy in love and being curious about the little things: the details of what you’re eating, what you’re doing…but most importantly, ‘Boy with Luv’ is like a fan letter from BTS to our Army.”
That, of course, set the crowd screaming again.
This weekend, BTS will play two shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
