BTS’s Jimin Insists His Arms Are NOT Short, But Can He Prove It?

He took this challenge very personally on Run BTS.

You should never judge a book by its cover or, in this case, the length of a person’s arms by their height!


In Episode 92 of Run BTS!, BTS continued the hotel room games they began in the previous episode. This time, the members voted “O” (agree) or “X” (disagree) in a game where MC read a statement, such as “V has the second-longest arms in BTS”. Then, they had to prove it.


Jimin and Suga voted “O”, while RMJungkook, and J-Hope voted “X”.


Team X voted “X” because they predicted V has the longest arms of all. Team O’s RM, on the other hand (other arm?), predicted that he himself would have the longest arms because he is the tallest member. That’s when Jimin chimed in.


Jimin wanted to know why he wasn’t a long-arms candidate. After all, acording to J-Hope, arm length has little to do with height. At 173.6cm (5’8.3″), Jimin is the shortest BTS member, but only by a fraction. Suga is 174 cm (5’8.5″) tall.


Jimin couldn’t wait to have his arm measured. Surely, he’d prove his naysayers wrong!


His attempts at “dislocating” his shoulder to add length, plus his hilarious facial expressions, cracked J-Hope up.


This was no laughing matter though. It was a moment of truth!


Just as Jungkook was about to announce the measurement, Jimin lost his nerve and tried to stretch his arm out one more time. Suga’s commentary didn’t help at all.


Short? Did he dare to say short? Jimin does not have short arms! Except…


…he does. Whoops! Numbers don’t lie and the final measurement confirmed that Jimin does, in fact, of the shortest upper limbs in BTS.


You know what they say though; good things come in smol packages!
