They handled it better than we would.

On December 3rd, BTS performed a holiday remix of their Grammy-nominated single “Dynamite” at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Fans are praising BTS’s spectacular stage, but also a memorable moment from the red carpet.

In the midst of flashing cameras, one photographer made a request. She asked BTS, “Guys, can we get a jump?” Immediately, another photographer said what some fans were thinking, “What? Are you kidding?” 

They did it at the Grammys,” the first photographer replied. She was referring to this iconic moment from 2019 Grammy Awards.


As some ARMYs have pointed out on Twitter, the Jingle Ball was not the Grammy Awards, and 2019 is a far cry from 2021. Much has changed in the past two years for BTS.

How did BTS react? With poise and grace. Jungkook responded to the request with a headshake and a wave, on behalf of his members.

In other words, thanks but no thanks!
