BTS and GOT7 aren’t just fellow idols; they’re friends! These days, both of these supergroups are super busy, but whenever “GOTBANG” does get to hang out, fans can’t enough of their lovable interactions. Here are 10 moments that made fans say, “GOTBANG is real”.
1. When BamBam (GOT7) and Jungkook (BTS) hugged at the 2018 Asian Artist Awards
At this year’s Asian Artist Awards, fan cams captured two of GOTBANG’s 97 liners hugging it out.
BamBam, Jungkook, and Yugyeom are all part of an exclusive 97 liner “club” that also includes SEVENTEEN‘s The8, Mingyu, and DK, and NCT’s Jaehyun. These friends keep in touch via a group chat, but fans love it when they get to see them hang out in person.
At the AAAs, Jungkook and BamBam got so caught up in their conversation that BamBam nearly delayed BTS’s group bow. He scooted out of the way just in time and nearly mowed down a cameraman!

Fans hope to see much more of these BFFs at future award shows.
2. When JB (GOT7) and V (BTS) danced to Bruno Mars’s “Uptown Funk”
BTS and GOT7 are both playful and extra, so there’s nothing better than a GOTBANG dance party. At 2015 MBC Gayo Daejejun, V and JB let go of all their inhibitions and got their freak on.
Jimin was a little too shy to fully get into the music, but he did bust a few moves during the chorus.
Mark can also be seen throughout the video dancing along in the background.
3. When GOTBANG put on this legendary “Virtual Boys” performance
At 2015 MAMA, GOTBANG put on special show that fans won’t soon forget. When all 14 of these incredible performers came together, the results were nothing short of badass. Even though the performance was short, GOTBANG fans are still talking about it to this day.
4. When things got unexpectedly sexy on Mcountdown
In 2016, BTS appeared on Mcountdown for a fan meeting hosted by SHINee‘s Key and BamBam. BamBam asked BTS to demonstrate some of their hottest moves, and things got a little crazy.
When Jungkook started body-rolling, J-Hope grabbed BamBam and dragged him into some impromptu fanservice. RM didn’t know whether to laugh or cringe, so he did a bit of both!
5. ISAC shennanigans
The annual Idol Star Athletics Championships is the perfect time to see idols from different groups interact. Every time GOTBANG gets the chance goof around with each other between events, they take it.
Fans have spotted them chilling…
…and just enjoying their time together.
6. When Jackson (GOT7) and RM (BTS) bickered backstage
These two rappers enjoy poking fun at each other behind the scenes. One time, Jackson accused RM of pretending to be busy so that he wouldn’t have to hang out with him!
RM fired back by calling Jackson “weird”.
He also revealed that Jackson made fun of his “I NEED U” performance poses.
According to Jackson though, this teasing is totally mutual.
7. When Jungkook (BTS) and Yugyeom (GOT7) ran into each other’s arms
At the end of 2016 MAMA, fans captured this beautiful moment between GOTBANG’s maknaes.
Jungkook walked through the crowd, wiping tears from his eyes, until he spotted his friend coming toward him. Once they embraced, they didn’t want to let go!
8. When Jackson (GOT7) and RM (BTS) had a rap battle
Jackson will boldly tease RM…as long as he doesn’t have to do it rap-style. When RM and Jackson faced off in a rap battle, Jackson was nervous. Before it began, Jackson told everyone that he was someone who raps rather than a true rapper, and asked RM not to go “too hard” or else his feelings would get hurt.
He even interrupted the rap by begging RM not to diss him!
9. When Jinyoung (GOT7) surprised BTS in the most unexpected way
On Mcountdown, BTS walked into an elevator and found Jinyoung wearing a plush peach hat as part of his mission.
Naturally, the members couldn’t stop themselves from touching it!
10. Every time BTS and GOT7 hyped each other’s performances
BTS and GOT7 aren’t just friends; they’re fans too! Fancams have captured GOTBANG rocking out to each other’s music at numerous award shows over the years.
Like that time at the 31st Golden Disc Awards. V and Jimin got so into “Hard Carry” that Suga couldn’t help joining in too!
