Alex Pall of the duo also shared a video on the group’s Instagram which showed him saying “We got our boys right here, let‘s go!” and BTS members cheering in response. 

Chainsmokers also dropped a group selfie with the caption that had tons of fans totally stoked. Teasing for a possible collaboration with the sensational K-pop group, the caption read, “See you guys in the summer!”
