In March 2020, Indian ARMY members were left in complete awe after Jimin mentioned that he has been watching movies during the lockdown. During the live session, Jimin mentioned Kareena Kapoor Khan and Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots and added that he watched it too. After Jimin’s massive disclosure, a number of Koreans took to Twitter to explain that the issues regarding the institution of education are quite similar in India and South Korea and therefore 3 Idiots is a popular movie in their country too.

Back then, even Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films acknowledged Jimin’s mention of 3 Idiots and expressed gratitude. Jimin had also added that he watched ‘Secretly, Greatly’ and Sam Claflin, Emilia Clarke starrer Me Before You as well.
