Fans all over the world are anxiously awaiting the new BTS album to drop in the wee hours of Friday morning — but who knew William Shatner was one of them?
Yet that appeared to be the case on Thursday when the erstwhile Captain Kirk took to Twitter to ask his 2.5 million followers if the wildly popular K-pop boy band’s new album had dropped yet.
A fan informed him that it was on its way in just 17 hours, with Map of the Soul: 7 scheduled to release at 4 a.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 21.
“Are you ready?” the responder asked.
“Is anyone ever ready?” replied Shatner philosophically.
Another BTS fan recommended that he “give it a listen when he drops,” to which the 88-year-old Montreal native quipped, “I’ll be sleeping when it drops but I will check it out when I get up.”
