Back in April, it was revealed that BTS would like to work with Eilish after being impressed by her debut album ‘When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’.
Speaking on Apple Beats 1 radio to promote their latest EP, BTS’ Jungkook specifically named Eilish as one of the artists that the band is hoping to collaborate with next. Describing his love of her debut record, Jungkook said that “everyone should hear it.”
On Sunday (June 9), a video of Jungkook lip-syncing to Eilish’s ‘Bad Guy’ was posted to the official BTS Twitter account. Starting off by mouthing the words, “I’m a baaaaaaad guy. Duh!” the K-pop star then starts energetically dancing around the room.

The pop star has previously only joined the Korean band during one live rendition of the track, teaming up with them at this year’s BBMAs.
The song is taken from the soundtrack to the Korean group’s upcoming interactive mobile game BTS World and features three of the band – Jin, Jimin, and Jungkook – alongside XCX.
