BTS Jimin’s compliment to SHINee’s Taemin goes all wrong

Jimin was only trying to support his sunbae, but ended up embarrassed after a comment on King of Masked Singer.

On this week’s episode, BTS‘s Jimin proved his admiration and loyalty to SHINee‘s Taemin. A panelist suggested that the masked singer was Taemin, but Jimin shot down the idea right away.

Jimin explained how he was so sure Taemin wasn’t the dancer, proudly saying “Taemin dances way better.” It was meant as a compliment, and proves how well Jimin knows his sunbae, but Jimin soon realized he may have just dissed whoever was behind the mask.

Judges had other suggestions, but Jimin insisted.

Realizing his mistake, Jimin began to pray that the mystery performer wasn’t a sunbae.

Of course, to Jimin’s chagrin, the masked singer was none other than MBLAQ‘s Thunder.

The shock on Jimin’s face is evident…

…as well as the judges.

Jimin became embarrassed and hid behind his hands.

He crouched to the floor, probably wishing there was a hole he could crawl into and hide.

Of course, he then apologized to his sunbae, Thunder.

It was an adorable mistake, but it was only because of respect for his sunbae, Taemin.

BTS maknae Jungkook has also been featured on the show before.
