No fan likes to see their idols cry.
Although it’s a relatively frequent occurrence during concerts, it always hurts for fans to see idols break down over anything, from trying to express gratitude to promising to work harder.
One especially heartbreaking instance was when BTS‘s V broke down at the ending of BTS’s 2018 Paris concert for their Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour.
During the two-day concert, V wasn’t feeling well, suffering from a sore throat that made it difficult to sing. Still, the idol gave his absolute all to the performances, trying to ensure that ARMY would still enjoy themselves.
By far my favorite moment of this year is from the Paris concert during TTU when Taehyung couldn’t sing so Armys started sing his lyrics from the top of their lungs and Tae was mouthing along with them. It was so beautiful #WE_PURPLE_V pic.twitter.com/uHACNskjy8

Despite ARMYs’ assurances that they all enjoyed themselves, V broke down in tears, worried that his performance may not have been what fans hoped for. His tears even continued backstage, with Jimin and Jungkook trying to comfort V.
And beyond his members’ comfort, a video recently went viral of a young ARMY trying to wipe away V’s tears through his television screen.
The adorable ARMY gently wipes away V’s tears with a tissue, trying to comfort the idol.
Fans hope V might see this clip and feel supported, even four years later.
Wondering what taehyung would react if he saw this 🥺 https://t.co/sjiVKWOtjm
