From comeback predictions to collaborations, BTS rumors are all over the internet, but the best rumors are the ones BTS started themselves. Here are 5 very ridiculous, entirely groundless rumors the members made up just for fun!
1. Jungkook sabotaged his own wardrobe.
At BTS’s PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE concerts in Seoul, Jungkook’s buttons were struggling…
Really struggling. “I was laughing because I closed the buttons, and it opened again,” Jungkook told his members, during a live broadcast. “This was so ridiculous.”
A wardrobe “accident?” RM wasn’t buying it. In fact, he claimed Jungkook picked at the threads of his outfit backstage to loosen the buttons. In reply, Jungkook laughed, saying, “This is how rumors get started.”
2. V and Jungkook aren’t getting along.
V and Jungkook are the best of friends…or are they? On a whim, Jin made up a rumor about them during a live broadcast.
“They argued earlier,” he said. “so it must be awkward.”
Immediately, the dynamic duo shut Jin’s fib down, saying, “We get scolded together,” and “This is how you create rumors.” Nice try, Jin!
3. J-Hope has written 15 new songs for Hope World 2
V and Jungkook aren’t the only members caught up in Jin’s silly rumors. Jin also made up a rumor about what J-Hope has been working on behind the scenes.
Jin: I heard you finished 15 songs!
J-Hope: Oh no, this is how a rumor is started
— Jin and J-Hope
Somebody stop this drama llama!
4. J-Hope is secretly using a marketer.
Another J-Hope rumor? Yes, but this time it’s all about Instagram! He is so skilled at using the app that his members are a little suspicious!
“I think he’s using a marketer,” Suga declared, during a livestream. J-Hope quickly denied this, but RM continued to tease him, saying, “Be honest with us. How much did you pay?”
5. RM is actually becoming the Hulk.
The Worldwide Rumor King strikes again! Jin went the extra mile by starting a rumor about RM on national television. On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jin pointed out what ARMY already knows; RM is swole. Perhaps, too swole.
RM, of course, wasn’t going to let Jin stay unchecked. “Ah, that’s not true, that’s not true!” He said, hiding behind Suga. “Stop! Stop the rumors!”
Hmm. Unlike the other rumors on this list, we think this one might be true!
