BTS Continues Their Positive Impact On Local Businesses After Jimin’s Latest Vlog
The members of BTS have been treating fans to weekly releases of individual vlogs, and the latest member to release theirs was Jimin!
Last week, J-Hope released his vlog, discussing his Jack in the Box album and featuring some behind-the-scenes content about creating his “Arson” music video wardrobe. His video showed the detail and hard work that went into making the incredible video.
The week before, BTS’s V took fans along for a day out. V had a great time driving around, singing to songs, stopping at streetside vendors, relaxing by the water, playing simulator golf, and enjoying delicious food.
V’s vlog earned attention and love from American singer, songwriter, and musician Lizzo after he sang her song while driving. The American artist then filmed a Tik Tok duet dancing alongside V.

V also sang American singer and actor Bing Crosby‘s “It’s Been A Long, Long Time,” which caught the attention of Bing Crosby’s estate, who tweeted that the late singer would have been a fan of BTS “for sure.”

V’s vlog significantly impacted one small business after ARMYs tracked down the restaurant where V ate lunch.
After discovering the name of the restaurant, fans have been visiting to eat there themselves, with one fan reporting the restaurant had run out of food when they visited.
Another fan who went to the restaurant reported that the owners were so grateful for the increased business that they could cry. The restaurant was not the only business positively impacted by BTS’s vlogs; Jimin’s vlog also helped a local business.
In Jimin’s vlog, he went to a local jewelry design and metal craft shop. There, he worked to make his own bracelet.
The instructor was incredibly kind to Jimin, who worried he would take too long. The instructor complimented Jimin’s natural skills as he worked with the metal to make the bracelet.
When Jimin accidentally snapped the saw blade he was working with, the instructor assured him it often happened with beginners. The instructor was more concerned that Jimin did not do anything to accidentally hurt himself.
Luckily, Jimin finished the project without any injuries and had a beautiful new bracelet as a result.
Although the vlog aired less than 24 hours ago, fans have already located the jewelry design and metal craft shop he went to and have begun requesting reservations.
As a result, the shop, Silver Kit House, posted on their Instagram, sharing their gratitude and alerting clients that their response time to reservations may be slower due to the increased interest.
Hello! We are Silver Kit. We just wanted to say that thankfully, there are a lot of questions about reservations, so we ask that you please understand if our response is late. We’ll make sure we answer everyone.

In their Instagram post, they included a purple heart for BTS and the chick emoji for Jimin, confirming the increased interest was due to the global impact of Jimin and BTS.
It seems that anywhere BTS goes becomes an instant hot spot, continuing to prove their incredible star power.
