Jungkook from BTS parodies Black Panther characters

- In a recent episode of BTS' variety show RUN! BTS, vocalist Jungkook can be seen repeating "Wakanda forever!' as he pokes his bandmates with a stick

- The Korean captions on screen read "Like a tribe chief returning after a hunt ", but the English subtitles tried to soften the racist overtones

- BTS members have been known to get away with engaging in blackface and cultural appropriation, since their early days while filming reality series American Hustle Life and more recently in the music video for j-hope and Becky G's cover of Chicken Noodle Soup.
