Will BTS Do ‘Carpool Karaoke’ With James Corden? This Fan Theory Is Pretty ConvincingFebruary 5, 2019
Here’s a fan theory for the books. Two massive pop culture giants, K-pop and Carpool Karaoke, are theorized to potentially join forces in the future. People are wondering — will BTS do Carpool Karaoke with James Corden? That’s because the two have one thing in common… the Grammys. Don’t worry, this fan theory breaks it all down succinctly and is actually pretty convincing. I feel like there is a real opportunity here for both Corden and BTS to capitalize on and ARMYs would eat it up.
Let’s break it down. The theory circulates around one key person, and that’s producer Ben Winston. Ben Winston is not only producing the Grammys, but he also works as co-executive producer on The Late Late Show with James Corden, a.k.a. the charismatic host of the hit segment series, Carpool Karaoke.
Everybody with me so far?
It was also recently revealed BTS will be presenting at the 2019 Grammys which links the outrageously popular K-pop group to Winston, too. And, oh yeah, Corden is a former Grammys host.
Coincidence??? Probably, but now consider this!:
To throw a little icing on an already poptacular cake, BTS is partnering with Hyundai…a car company… on their new Palisades campaign. As my editor put it, "1 + 1 + 1 = CARPOOL KARAOKE." Or, to spell it out for you — BTS’ connection to The Late Late Show’s Ben Winston plus their car sponsorship could be a perfect recipe for a stellar Carpool Karaoke segment with James Corden.
Fans on Twitter are so proud of themselves for piecing it together.
Ben, James, BTS. It sounds like the crowd has spoken.
Not for nothing, James Corden has already proven he’s open to the idea. In fact, he once tweeted at BTS saying he’d love for them to come on his show sometime, and even suggested Carpool Karaoke himself!
Based on some K-pop rumors, this would be a really good time for Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, RM, V, Suga, and J-Hope to jump on TV in the U.S., too. BTS has a rumored comeback on the books for May 2019, which means any opportunity to get more press right now is an opportunity worth taking.
In K-pop lingo, a "comeback" refers to the debut of a new body of work and all of the hype and press that goes into it. For example, in 2018 BTS celebrated three comebacks: Face Yourself, Love Yourself: Tear, and Love Yourself: Answer. Now, Korean newspaper Donga reports insiders close to BTS say they have another one on the horizon. The report was translated into English in the following tweet:
According to an AllKPop translation, the insider report continued,
So, yeah. It’s a damn good time to get a little Carpool Karaoke-action up in here.
Hear our cry, James! Hear our cry, Ben! Hear our cry, BTS!
