BTS‘s massive popularity is pretty much undebatable and untouchable today. Their effortless charms can quickly get strangers floored, whether on-stage or off-stage.
When it comes to RM, there is a lot on the plate to process at once. His dominating stage presence, genius musicality, and hard-to-ignore physique are enough reasons to turn people’s heads even outside of the fandom.
Here are eight times he went viral on social media, and for the most majestic reasons:
1. For getting confused on stage:
