V Live editors announced the 10 best celebrity videos of 2018, which included those by members of BTS, Twice, EXO and other top K-pop acts.

Of 1,300 clips chosen as the weekly V Pick videos this year, the editors selected the best video in 10 categories such as “talented diamond hands,” “couldn't stop laughing while editing” and “celebs with lovely pets.”

BTS member V’s livestream with his pet dog was the winner of the “celebs with lovely pets” category and the overall No. 1.

The global star’s puppy, Yeontan, became the object of jealousy for over 7 million viewers around the world. The clip was watched 7.5 million times and has garnered 396 million hearts since it aired on Dec. 6.

Meanwhile, a video of Black Pink’s Jennie and Jisoo decorating their cell phone cases was chosen as the best celebrity-created “how-to” video, with editors commenting that the “hands of these celebs are made of gold.”

GOT7’s appearance on “LieV,” a V Live original show in which celebrities livestream while lying in bed, was chosen as the best of the series, with editors saying that “the only thing that induced sleep was the title!”

EXO’s video of the group playing the Mafia game was picked for making V Pick editors laugh while editing.

BTS’ leader RM was chosen in the category of “Let’s be closer next year” as he had been clumsy with the V app.

In a solo broadcast titled “RM: LOVE YOURSELF 結 ‘Answer’ Behind,” aired on Sept. 6, RM shared stories about the group’s then just-released album.

When it was time for questions, the rapper said he would answer 10 questions, because in another broadcast he had failed to keep his word. In the previous clip, he said he would take five questions but the livestream ended suddenly.

When RM attempted to read comments for the questions, something happened and the sound became muted. Apparently at a loss, he left the room and returned, to no avail. And again, so much for the questions, as that was the end of the broadcast.

While Twice member Jeongyeon was livestreaming from a waiting room of a TV station in late November, dinner arrived for bandmates Momo and Jihyo.

The two tried an impromptu “meokbang,” or a live eating show, which resulted in one of the top 10 clips of 2018.
