Give it up for Yara shahidi and Charles Melton. And we're so excited to have you here. Everyone is but you guys, I heard you're excited for bts. Oh, for sure. Yeah. I'm very excited, very excited. Doing a lot of these. A lot of these. Well, you know what, you do have some dance moves, break up with your girlfriend. Ariana grande's video. Yeah, I was in that. You want to see some dance moves. Yeah, give us something, give us something. That's it. Yara, you know I won't let you off the hook. Give me a little -- What am I doing? A bts move. I like their shoulder thing. When they went back. That, I was like, can I please be a member? I'm sure they'll let you in. Anything is possible. Bts. A whole new career path right now. We're going to talk about your new movie, "The sun is also a star," based on a "New York Times" number one best-selling author Nicola Yoon and not your typical rom-com movie. For sure.
