BTS’s RM Was Only Wearing Underwear When He First Met Jungkook

Some first impressions are unforgettable, and this is one of them.

By now, many ARMYs know that fate brought Jungkook and his “first and last role model”, RM, together. Some fans, however, may not know that this destined meeting has a hilarious story behind it!

On February 24, BTS guested on a special episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, wherein they answered fans’ questions, visited a famous New York deli, played (cheated at!) games, and performed at Grand Central Terminal.

Several surprises were in store for ARMY, including a true story about first impressions. “First impressions,” Jimmy Fallon said. “What did you think of each other when you first got together?” 

Jungkook answered in English, saying, “I saw RM and then I thought he was amazing.” 

Before you start “awwing”, here’s RM‘s side of the story!

Thank you, but Jungkook, when I first saw him, I was only wearing the underwear.

Wait, what? Jimmy Fallon, who was blown away by this fact bomb, called time out. “What?” he interjected. “You were only wearing underwear?” 

RM explained that at the time, he had been hanging out at home and clearly not expecting visitors!

I was wearing [it] in the house, in my home. And he came, like, ‘Hi, I’m the new member’, and I was only wearing panties, and yeah, that was the first impression.

RM wasn’t the only one walking around in his undies though. SugaJin, and Jungkook all remember seeing a lot of boxers in their old dorm!

It seems like fate has a sense of humor! Watch the whole interview here:
