BTS, the K-pop sensations and Grammy nominees, will appear as special guests on "Friends: The Reunion." Show's director Ben Winston however warned fans to manage their expectations as their appearace in the show would be rather short.
"I want to manage your expectations on this - it's a really short moment from BTS. They are great of course, but they are one of the interviews, talking briefly about why they like friends," Winston said on a tweet.
Fans appreciated the director's honestly and expressed their excitement nonetheless.
"Noted and thank you for letting us know! Even though it is kind of dissapointing since I have been seeing that BTS are advertised as part of the main names for this.. Unless everyone gets the same screen time which would be fairerWoman shrugging," one user said.
"We appreciate this! The spotlight should be on the stars of Friends. We're just happy our boys are invited. I look forward to the Friends reunion especially as a fan who grew up watching the show on TV and the reruns in Netflix. I miss them so much. Good luck with the show!," another commented.
