Eagle-eyed fans have managed to zoom in the polaroid picture and suspect that it might be of Chris Martin from Coldplay.

Moreover, Chris was previously questioned about the speculated collaboration during an interview on Valentine In The Morning back in May this year.

The radio host asked him: “I don’t know if you learned any [Korean] when you were in South Korea [but] maybe you bumped into a certain K-pop band named BTS? There’s a lot of rumours on the street.”

“There’s a glitch. He’s gone,” Chris joked, avoiding the question.
