A Viral ARMY Dance Video Catches BTS Jimin’s Attention, And He Has Questions
BTS‘s Jimin has been actively promoting his debut album, FACE, and recently held a live event where he listened to the songs from his album with fans and shared stories about what inspired them.
Jimin’s live was conducted on a set that was modeled after a cozy home, and he shared that he hoped the live broadcast would be healing for ARMYs, much like the album was healing for him.
🐣 It's good to see you, everyone. It's Jimin~
🐣 I thought it would be a live but we're meeting at a new place, right? Where do you think this is? This room is made for me. This live, we'll focus on healing, like the album.pic.twitter.com/VsA7eiyB56

What started as a calming live quickly turned a bit chaotic when he hilariously “called out” ARMYs for posting the hidden track from his album, “Letter,” which was only accessible if someone bought a physical copy of the album.

In another candid moment from the FACE livestream, Jimin pointed out something else that confused him, and again ARMYs were hilariously at the source.
Before his album was released, Jimin dropped the pre-release track “Set Me Free Pt.2,” which featured a new side to Jimin’s impressive vocals and artistic choreography, effortlessly performed by Jimin, who trained in contemporary dance and ballet before his debut.
After the music and choreography videos were released, Jimin came across a viral TikTok which displayed one specific move in an exaggerated way.
Jimin hilariously brought it up and had a few questions for the funny ARMYs behind the video.

I was so shocked when I saw it. They’re banging their heads on the streets. They were banging their heads on a tree. I didn’t make that dance with that in mind. ARMYs really have unique ideas… I was shocked! I want to see it again right now, but I left my phone…

The video he referred to was shared on TikTok and made its way to other social media sites. The original TikTok video currently has over 1.5 million views.

The ARMYs in the video weren’t the only ones mesmerized by the move; BTS’s Jungkook couldn’t help repeating it himself in his recent Weverse live.

Fellow ARMYs rushed to tell the creators of the TikTok video, MOONSTONE, a dance cover group from Colombia, that Jimin and possibly Jungkook noticed the video, sharing in the hilarious moment.
