Jimin having the adorable nickname, is internationally known thanks to BTS's appearance on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" segment "Carpool Karaoke," where host James Corden revealed he was aware of his "mochi" nickname. Jimin then titled Corden as his "Papa Mochi," making Jimin the "Baby Mochi"! Soon after, the co-producer of the show, Ben Winston, titled himself "Uncle Mochi." There is a whole mochi family!
