BTS sat down with iHeart for a special interview that lasted for 35 minutes on May 21st (local time), however, the experience, especially for international ARMY, was unpleasant to say the least.
During a portion of the interview, the interviewer asked the crowd,
“which one of the guys is most likely to mess up the dance routines?”
When ARMY started shouting RM and Jin, Jin replied with,
“I am not wrong!”
ARMY found an issue with the way other ARMY who attended the interview reacted, the ARMY in the audience yelled out ‘Jin,’ and ‘RM.’ one particular person loudly yelled out Jin.
Jin can be seen looking rather uncomfortable. Other members tried to laugh it off but Jin looked visibly upset. Jungkook signed to the audience ‘No,’ while V signed ‘cut’ and said ‘nothing’ as in to tell the audience to politely stop yelling.
Here is the clip:
