On January 1, BTS’ j-hope performed at ABC's New Year's countdown live show Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in New York City.

Dressed in a long white sweater and a matching bucket hat, the idol participated in a brief media interaction with media personality and actress Liza Koshy before his performance. While introducing the BTS member to the crowd, Liza Koshy excitedly announced:

“Speaking of someone who everyone wants to kiss...j-hope!”

While the singer-rapper initially smiled and excitedly looked at the crowd, the moment the host mentioned his name alongside the word “kiss,” BTS’ j-hope was taken aback and looked at her with a shocked expression.

His startled reaction did not go unnoticed by fans, who took to social media to talk about it. One ARMY even pointed out the change in his expression by noting:

“His face please.”
