British music media NME shared on June 20, 2019, that ARMYs have been begging them to cast Jimin as Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid.
According to NME, a fan posted to SNS, asking them to cast him as the Prince. After seeing the post, more fans posted on to SNS agreeing with the fans, claiming that Jimin is the perfect Prince Eric. Fans posted pictures of Jimin in a white shirt, similar to what the Disney prince wears.
Disney has been releasing live-action movies since 2014. Since then, they have released live-action films of previous animated princess films, like Beauty and the Beast. Aladdin, a film released just this year, has collected over 6 million views in Korea alone.
A live action The Little Mermaid is currently in the works, but no one has been cast as Prince Eric yet. ARMYs have their fingers crossed that Jimin will be considered for the role!
