For one ARMY and their co-workers, meeting J-Hope was like a scene from a K-Drama. They were at work, running a store, when J-Hope walked in with two friends.

While talking and laughing with those friends, J-Hope shopped for Snoopy dishes and stickers. He’s a big fan of this cartoon pooch and even named him as his “style hero” in an interview with GQ magazine.

“…….I saw Hoseok. He came to our store and went shopping. He talked and laughed happily with two friends, shopping for Snoopy’s accessories. Both of us [at the store] are ARMYs…

When the store owner told J-Hope that they are ARMY, he greeted them with a smile, then went on his way.

…He greeted us with a hello and a smile, and left. The soft tears are dripping. I love you, Hoseok. On Jimin’s birthday, I feel like I received a gift.

In a follow-up tweet, the fan shared a photo of the merchandise J-Hope purchased.

Not long after this ARMY shared their story, another fan came forward and revealed that they had also met J-Hope that day.

ㅠㅠㅠㅠ I can’t really calm down now ㅠㅠㅠ Even though [J-Hope] was wearing a mask, I recognized him right away ㅠㅠ So I really froze on the spot without even realizing it, but he noticed and smiled ㅠㅠㅠ He knew [I was] an ARMY ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ He smiled brightly at me ㅠㅠㅠ
