On November 18, KST, the TvN show The Dictionary Of Useless Human Knowledge released an extended teaser, highlighting key moments from its upcoming episodes. BTS‘s RM and filmmaker Jang Hang Jun are co-MCs on the show, joined by four cast members—novelist Kim Young Ha, physicist Kim Sang Wook, forensic scientist turned professor Lee Ho, and astronomer Dr. Shim Chae Kyung. The program will focus on different topics in each episode through fun conversations and discussions among the six cast members.
During one such discussion in the teaser, RM gave a very poetic explanation of what “love” means to him.
I thought a lot about what love is. There could be dislike, there could be jealousy too. There are several different emotions under the umbrella of ‘love.’
But shortly after this explanation, Kim Sang Wook added his perspective to the concept of love. He said that when you know your partner too well, you stop feeling the excitement that love brings to you initially.
If you know your partner perfectly, you won’t get the butterflies anymore.
—Kim Sang Wook
🐨 사랑이 뭘까 그런생각 엄청 했었거든요. 미움도 있을 수 있고 질투도 있을 수 있고. 여러가지의 감정이 사랑이라는 과목 아래에 있을 수 있지 않을까
🔭 완벽하게 상대를 알면 설렘이 생기지 않거든요
🐨 아 너무 슬퍼 🥲
F의 감정 동홬ㅋㅋㅋ pic.twitter.com/ixzz4kTvs7

This observation probably hit a chord with RM as he replied, “Oh, that’s too sad!”
The romantic disposition of RM in the teaser has intrigued ARMYs into wanting to know more about what RM has to say about the topic. In fact, many have already started debating whether Kim Sang Wook’s observation is universally accurate.
I completely agree. This has been my experience after almost 30 yrs of marriage. It’s very important to marry your best friend, b/c the “butterflies” fade as you evolve together establishing healthy, reliable relationship foundation where you profoundly appreciate your partner.

+ and you still get butterflies given that your relationship is strong and that you communicate well with your partner, so it really depends… the episode hasn’t even come out yet and I’m feeling like having discussions lol😂 I’m so excited
