Liam Payne's praise of BTS star Jimin has finally made the One Direction & BTS worlds collide.
Taking to Twitter, one fan shared a GIF of Jimin mic flipping on stage with BTS and said, 'Thats talent. I want him to have a mic flip duel with @LiamPayne #BTS #JIMIN #Liampayne #FirstTime'.
Surprising everyone, Liam then replied to the tweet and bowed down to Jimin's mic flipping ability, handing the crown to the BTS star.
Declining the offer of a mic flipping battle, Liam wrote, 'Nah he wins. I’m out' alongside a cry laughing emoji and we're still kinda just sat here shook that One Direction and BTS have just collided.
Nah he wins 😂I’m out 🙌🏼— Liam (@LiamPayne) September 8, 2018
But Liam isn't the only One Direction star to interact with the BTS universe as Niall Horan was recently spotted in a picture at a meet and greet with fans doing the Anpanman pose.
Sharing Niall's BTS tribute on Twitter, one fan wrote, 'Stan Twitter, I give you Niall Horan wearing a #Shooky headband (which he chose), doing the Anpanman pose: Congrats, and thanks for making it happen'.

BTS have been building their fanbase all over the world during their current world tour and even peformed a stunning live set at America's Got Talent recently.
With all this BTS and One Direction crossover happening, it's making us think of all the other ways these two worlds could come together - how about BTS doing a K-pop cover of 1D's 'If I Could Fly' on their Love Yourself World Tour dates in the UK? Well, we can dream...
