The entire fandom was shaken by V who came to VLive by surprise, where he greeted us and played music, with a glimpse of RM singing and dancing to Boyz II Men’s End of the Road.
BTS became the first group in Spotify history to have 70 songs surpass 100M, and Permission to Dance and Boy With Luv became the first Korean songs to surpass 700M streams. Lastly, Dynamite was certified double platinum by ARIA in Australia.
BTS made a hilarious appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, playing a game titled “Will It Fit?”, and SBS 8 News talked about how they have been ruling the Billboard charts for months now.
Jimin then closed the day by posting two adorable selfies, saying he loved and missed ARMY.

After receiving an overwhelming response from ARMY, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men left a heartwarming message for BTS thanking them for listening to their song on his personal Instagram. It was not his first time posting about the boys, though. In 2019, he posted a video of himself at a BTS concert in Rose Bowl. What a legend!
BANGTANTV dropped “BTS (방탄소년단) P. to. D Project” on YouTube, in which BTS competed to make ARMY laugh and dance. How can we not love them?
V caused a stir by appearing as a cameo on Peakboy’s latest MV, GYOPO HAIRSTYLE, along with his friends Park Hyungsik, Park Seojoon and Choi Wooshik. He then dropped by Weverse to interact with ARMY.
Near midnight, j-hope surprised us with a jamming session on VLive. For about an hour and a half, he showcased his wonderful moves and did a mini HYBE tour (he even took ARMY for a short visit to a washroom!). Later on, RM posted pictures from his previous visit to a museum.
