Actor and professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the most famous actors known worldwide. But recently, ARMYs discovered that he is also a true BTS fan.
In particular, when promoting his new movie, he did not hesitate to show his love for BTS. He even shouted out BTS for the whole world to hear!
Currently, The Rock is promoting the new Black Adam movie of the DC Cinematic Universe when it hits theaters tomorrow, October 20. He stars in the action, fantasy film. Black Adam is also the character that this actor plays.
The film follows the era nearly 5000 years after Black Adam was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods-and imprisoned just as quickly. In this time, Black Adam is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
To promote his film, The Rock participated in an interview with Culture N Star. On the show, The Rock played a game where he had to choose whether his character Black Adam or an iconic Korean character would win.
In the two selections of actor Ma Dong Seok (also known as Don Lee) and Korean professional soccer player Son Heung Min over Black Adam, he did not hesitate to love the character Black Adam. However, Black Adam then had to bow to BTS.
BTS is the first person that The Rock chooses when making difficult decisions. He also explained why BTS are the only ones that are said to be capable of winning against Black Adam. Without hesitation, he praised BTS, saying that they are likely to win because they literally have ARMY.
Specifically he said: “Thirty million albums sold which is absolutely incredible. And they have an ARMY! That’s how badass they are. They have got a shot to beat Black Adam.”

The Rock is known for being the first actor with the highest paid first lead role (worth over $5.5 million). He also made a name for himself with Fast and Furious and the series The Hero. The Rock is also on Forbes’ list of the most powerful celebrities.
He even affirmed that Black Adam can surpass Son Heung Min – the most famous football player in Korea at the moment or actor Ma Dong Seok. But he’s humble in front of BTS, that’s really proud. He must also have a great love for BTS.
Moreover, we know another professional wrestler and DC Cinematic Universe character who loves BTS. This is John Cena – his fellow actor. John Cena is one of the biggest members of the BTS ARMY (literally), and he always manages to include BTS in his work, from the film Playing with Fire to HBO Max and DCCU show Peacemaker.
