One of the celebrity pictures that they used for the game was that of the famous late-night talk show host, Conan. J-Hope was the one who was supposed to identify the picture but it seemed like he panicked and instead of saying Conan's name, he hilariously blurted the word "Curtain".

The other members of BTS jokingly berated J-Hope for failing to answer correctly, with Jin telling him, "Conan! Conan!" Jimin asked J-Hope "Don't you know the Conan show?" J-Hope, who has broken into a fit of laughter, explained himself. "I got confused!" He then proceeded to say sorry to the talk show host, "Conan, sorry!"

Conan shared a snippet of the Run BTS episode and proceeded to pretend to get mad at not being properly recognized. Conan indignantly exclaimed, "Curtain. He called me curtain!" He then shared that he believed he was really popular when he went to Korea. It can be recalled that Conan even did a funny cameo in a K-drama as part of his Korean experience.

Conan also said in jest, "I will get you BTS. Oh, I will get you good. And by that I mean I'll silently resent you. I have no power to do anything to you. You're gonna go on to have huge success."

The host started chuckling as he showed recognition for the power and potential that BTS holds thanks in part to their massive and faithful fandom, ARMY.

"I'm very old and on the way out and you guys are pretty much running the world. So when I say I'll get you, I just mean I'm gonna stew in my own juices for quite a long time and you'll be vastly unaware."

Conan also showed his appreciation for BTS members Jin and Jimin for recognizing him. He gave them a little shout-out in the description box of the video. "CONAN Highlight: J-Hope couldn’t remember Conan’s name, but luckily Jimin and Jin are #TeamCoco​."
