Congress leader Rahul Gandhi got his first lesson in Korean music genre K-Pop and popular group Uber BTS from a group of Kerala schoolgirls on Tuesday during his party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra.
MP for Wayanad in Kerala, Mr Gandhi chatted with three schoolgirls in a restaurant. During their conversation, when Mr. Gandhi asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up, the girls said they wanted to become nurses and work in South Korea.
Intrigued, Mr. Gandhi then asked them why South Korea. The girls said they are part of the BTS Kerala Army, fans of South Korean K-Pop group BTS.
The girls then introduced BTS’s music to the Congress leader and told him that their music helps them through difficult times.

“We didn’t expect to meet him,” said one of the girls. “We went to see him when we heard he was coming. He called us and even bought ‘Sharjah Shake’ for us. We are so happy and excited to meet such a humble person.”
“A delightful chat with these amazing girls who are the BTS army of Kerala!” Mr Gandhi tweeted and also shared a video of his conversation with the schoolgirls.
Mr Gandhi today launched the 13th day of his Bharat Jodo Yatra from Cherthala to Kerala with thousands of party workers.
The Congress party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra will cover a distance of 3,570 km in 150 days. It started in Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on September 7 and will end in Jammu and Kashmir.
