BTS‘s V recently hosted his anticipated solo fanmeeting, (V)ICNIC, at an atmospheric outdoor theater located on Kyunghee University’s campus.
The fanmeeting was an unforgettable night for those in attendance and for fans around the world who followed along with videos posted by ARMYs who witnessed the event in person.
To celebrate his solo debut, V prepared “(v)icnic” baskets for fans, full of adorable treats and, of course, references to his precious dog Yeontan.
V didn’t just prepare gifts and photocards for fans; he prepared an incredible surprise for ARMYs, too, when he brought out fellow BTS member Jimin.
Together, the two BTS members chatted with fans, performed their duet “Friends,” discussed plans for a possible future collaboration, and even played games with a few handpicked ARMYs in the audience.
Among the lucky fans picked to be up on stage was one ARMY who stood out from the rest, and it’s easy to see why.
The lucky ARMY hilariously wore a Bart Simpson costume to the fanmeeting and heartwarmingly announced that she did it to put a smile on V’s face “at least once.”
The way the Simpson Army said she dressed like that with the hope that Taehyung would smile at least once… Omg the way she made smile not only taehyung but also jimin 🥺😭

The ARMY achieved their goal as they had both V and Jimin smiling and cracking up while playing ping pong together, during the fan’s adorable “Dynamite” dance cover, and more.

The ARMY later took to Twitter to share more about her experience on stage with the two BTS members and revealed that Jimin had called her by name.
The ARMY noted that she had only said her name once when introducing herself, and the teleprompters referred to the fans onstage as “ARMY 1,” “ARMY 2,” etc., making the fact that Jimin remembered her name even more special.

(글주변도 없고 정리도 못해서 생각날때마다 씁니다)
1.무대에서는 지민이가 제 이름을 불러주면서 결혼했는지 물어본걸 몰랐어요😅
프롬프터도 아미1 아미2 이런식으로만 있었는데 처음 소개할때 한번 말한걸 기억해줘서 불러주다니🥺💜

Jimin and V weren’t the only ones amused by Bart Simpson-ARMY. Netizens shared their reactions to the ARMY’s unexpected costume and the funny events that transpired from the “Bart Simpson” cameo.
