Watch T1’s Faker join forces with BTS on variety show Run BTS

League of Legends organisation T1 collaborated with K-pop group BTS on their web series, where they competed in a number of comical games.
Watch T1’s Faker join forces with BTS on variety show Run BTS

The world of esports and K-pop collided in superstar fashion on BTS variety show RUN BTS, with T1’s League of Legends roster going up against the likes of Jungkook and Jimin.

The three-time world championship team, consisting of Effort, Teddy, Cuzz, Canna and their legendary mid laner Faker, made a special appearance on the K-pop boy band’s web series.

What did they get up to exactly? Instead of League of Legends, T1’s roster went up against Jungkook, Jimin, V, Suga, J-Hope, RM and Jin across six comical games - including one where they try to catch each other out via some rhythm-action.

A later game sees them play rock, paper, scissors, with the winner then having to whack their opponent with a toy hammer - while the other puts a bowl on their head. We’re not sure entirely what’s going on, but it’s magical regardless. 

As you’d hope, the two teams do eventually play League of Legends - albeit a round of Mundo Dodgeball instead. 


RUN BTS started way back in 2015, and has since gone onto have over 113 episodes to date. 

Of course, esports and K-pop have collided before - with Riot Games developing their own virtual K-pop group K/DA who recently performed at the League of Legends World Championship Finals in Shanghai, China. 

You can check out the full episode of RUN BTS below, where there’s also spots of karaoke and other manic delights. It’s a feast for every sense.
