Welcome to the 2021 Olympics, Bangtan style. Here, you won’t find traditional events like archery or alpine skiing, but rather BTS activities that deserve to be sports at the K-Pop Olympics!
1. Being Jungkook’s cameraman
In this sport, there’s no such thing as winning. There’s only surviving.
jungkook’s cameraman: *struggling*

2. Scoring tickets to BTS concerts
Gold medal: barricade. Silver medal: A-C sections. Bronze medal: Every other seat, if you’re lucky enough to get one!

3. Finding the “spy”
This sport is as tough mentally as it is physically!

4. Rapping this verse in “Daechwita”
It doesn’t matter if you speak Korean or English. If you don’t also speak AGUST D, you don’t have a shot at winning!
in celebration of agust d world domination let me bring back his iconic verse in daechwita 😩

5. Trying to understand the instructions and rules for Run BTS! games
Why is it always so complicated?

6. Staying awake for live broadcasts, online concerts, and new music
Raise your hand if you have ever felt personally victimized by “Twelvehitphobia.”

7. Trying to understand live shows without subtitles
Who said being an international fan was easy?

8. Finding brands before they sell out
Whether it’s a toothbrush, a bottle of wine, or a designer shirt, seasoned shopper-ARMYs can track down anything, even with the tiniest pieces of information. As the rest of us struggle, frantically searching Twitter for answers, the so-called “broke” ARMYs are buying the last items in stock!
Jungkook be like im not gonna tell you what perfume i use, but the wine he drink already sold out 😂😂😂

9. Analyzing the BTS Universe
If you’re new to BTS’s fictional universe, well…good luck to you! Even fans who started stanning BTS way back in 2013 still haven’t solved all the mysteries yet!
10. Tracking down shreds of “evidence” like a veteran detective
We’ve all been there. You see a video clip but have no idea where it was from or when it was filmed. So, you use the members’ hair colors, outfits, and any other clues to find the original source. Question: Where is this from?
If you guessed the BTS LIVE TRILOGY opening, you are correct!
11. Every dance break, but especially the “ON” dance break
