As BTS made their stop in Los Angeles, the boys were interviewed by Buzzfeed Celeb. The BTS boys were asked what their English stage names would be.

BTS' J-Hope replied first, and stated that his English name would be "J-Dope". BTS' Jin came after J-Hope and revealed that he would like to be called "Genie". Koreaboo reports that Jin even sang Girl's Generation's "Genie".

Next was BTS' Suga which revealed that he would like to be called "Yeon Ki Kim". "Yeon Ki Kim" is Suga's real name in Korean. Suga then imagined that his fans would be calling him in his real name in an airport when he leaves.

BTS's Rap Monster went for a cute name and revealed that he would want to be called "Monie". Jin was awed and said that it was cute. Bromance!

BTS' Jimin first said that English names were long. He then replied that his English name would be "Christian Chim Chim".

Next was BTS' Jungkook which replied that he would like to be called "Justin Seagull". "Justin" because he liked the Canadian singer Justin Bieber, and "Seagull" because Jungkook was born in Busan and the city's official bird is the seagull.

BTS' V on the other hand, revealed that their production manager likes one-word names. He revealed that he would like to be called "Jack" from the 1997 movie "Titanic". He then acted out Rose's part saying "Jack, come back!"

To end the interview, BTS' Rap Monster apologized in behalf of the group for their humiliating answers. Fans however, were delighted by their answers.

On March 12, BTS was in Santiago, Chile and in Sao Paulo, Brazil on March 19 to 20, reports Fuse. BTS recently held their concert in the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on April 1 to 2.
