Now, the latest TV series to feature BTS is the CBS sitcom The Neighborhood.
The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer and New Girl‘s Max Greenfield as neighbors Calvin Butler and Dave Johnson, respectively. It is currently in its fourth season.
A friendly guy from the Midwest tries to fit in in a tough L.A. neighborhood.
In Season 4, Episode 18, released on April 18, 2022, Dave’s son Grover (Hank Greenspan) attempts to navigate his first crush, Molly Martin. His mom Gemma (Beth Behrs) turns to Tina Butler (Tichina Arnold) for help.
In one scene, Grover tries on different outfits and shows the Butler sons Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney) and Marty (Marcel Spears), seeking their advice. So, he comes out strutting his new look.
It’s the best look by far, and the guys are impressed. The reason why the fit looks good? Grover took inspiration from the fashion king himself, BTS’s J-Hope!
I’m trying to look cool, like J-Hope from BTS.
Grover explains that he chose J-Hope as his fashion inspiration because he is his crush Molly’s bias! Still, Grover recognized that he didn’t quite have the idol’s hairstyle recreated.
Molly loves him, but J-Hope’s hair is straighter than mine…
He planned to use a relaxer to get straighter hair. Yet, relaxer is a type of cream or lotion meant for those with tight curls. So, Malcolm and Marty advise against it as the chemicals would be too harsh for Grover’s hair.
Shortly after The Neighborhood shared the clip on social media, J-Hope reposted it on Instagram. He reacted with a laughing emoji, a heart-filled smiley face, and a cool head-nod GIF.
