Story highlights

It seems the ARMY is claiming US Vice President Kamala Harris as one of their own. 

It was a historic moment on Wednesday as Kamala Harris became the first person of colour and first woman Vice President of the United States. The world witnessed Harris- a South-Asian and African woman, taking oath on the steps on Capitol Hill in Washington and collectively cheered her. But it seems the BTS Army had other reasons to celebrate. 

One Twitter user realised that Harris follows the popular K-pop band and instantly posted a screenshot of it.

Someone else shared a screenshot of Kamala Harris' Spotify playlist which features BTS hit track 'Boy With Luv'. 



The two screenshots obviously got the ARMY excited as they claimed Harris as one of their own. 

Here's how Twitter expressed excitement at discovering that Harris was part of the ARMY. 


Harris is not the only political leader to like K-pop. Former US president Barack Obama and his daughter Malia too are reportedly big fans of K-Pop and are known to be SHINee fans. 

Harris took oath on Wednesday and tweeted, "Ready to serve." She shared a video of her swearing-in and wrote, "It's an honour to be your Vice President." 

The Joe Biden- Kamala Harris inaugural ceremony had performances by Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and Garth Brooks.
