On September 30, Naomi Osaka revealed a fun fact about her meeting Suga courtside at an NBA Japan preseason game between the Golden State Warriors and the Washington Wizards.
According to the tennis superstar, she took the opportunity to show love for Suga’s music by bringing up “Autumn Leaves,” a fan-favorite BTS B-side that was famously composed and produced by Suga himself.
Posting a photo of the moment on Twitter, Naomi Osaka wrote, “lol so I told Suga that ‘Autumn Leaves’ is a great song,” before adding, “I don’t know why but that was one thing I made up my mind to tell him if we ever bumped into each other.”
