Ha Ha Mentions BTS V And Apologizes

In a recent episode of Running Man, cast member Ha Ha was caught off guard by his own comment. The incident occurred when comedian Shin Gyu Jin asked the cast members to name celebrities who resemble him. Cast members started naming top celebrities including Park Seo Joon and Jung Woo Sung. It is at that time Ha Ha mentioned BTS V.

The moment he took V's name, the entire cast was shocked. They started telling Ha Ha, he was in trouble. This is probably because they were scared of the ARMY's [BTS fans] reaction. Ha Ha suddenly took the opportunity to apologize and say he didn't mean it.

It can be noted that BTS shares a good bond with Running Man cast. BTS took part in the Running Man show in episode 300 [August 2015]. RM was seen praising Running Man cast Yoo Jae Suk for taking good care of him and the team.
