[ +323 / -40] BTS for real… They go perform at so many festivals. And after two gets hurt, they have to go on stage again in couple days. Their schedules are so tight. BTS members’ close friends say that they are not actually smiling when they do… I think it is such a hard job to be celebrities

[ +263 / -29] Does BIG HIT entertainment really want to get hit big ^^? What hiatus….. How could you say they are in hiatus when they are still working.. Let them rest for at least a month


[ +156 / -21] I think papa YG lost keys after locking up Lee Hi and Akdong Musician in a treasure chest
