“Do you know BTS?” asked the members. “We are K-pop stars. Superstar, shooting sunshine, top group BTS,” said RM before finishing off with an embarrassed grin as everyone else cracked up.

“Everyone, BTS and Army won prizes!” said Jin elatedly.

“When I saw Imagine Dragons, I thought it might be unlikely (for us to get the prize). But when they got the Top Rock Artist, I began to think ‘wait a minute,’” conceded Suga. “I had my hopes up a little at the moment as well,” added Jin.

“I was too eager to do well on stage and overdid my dance in the first part. I could barely catch my breath,” confessed RM about performing “Boy With Luv” with Halsey.

“There were so many impressive moments but the first was how much more people recognized us when we got to the award venue. And how many more fans there were for us. It was impossible not to smile,” marveled Jimin. “It gave us so much energy,” chimed in Jungkook.

“It would be a lie if we said we did not have stress but everything went well thanks to everyone,” said leader RM appreciating the effort of all members and support of fans before finishing the segment with everyone shouting “The Billboard goes to ARMY!”

“I did start (streaming) but I am at a loss,” he began rubbing his eyes. “This probably is the second time I am doing this alone,” he added, asking fans what others talk about on V app.

Going through the messages that started to flow in, the rapper realized that there were over 48,000 fans logged on. “This is why I find it scary. Once you turn this on, you draw so much attention,” he said.

He seemed relieved to find a subject he could talk about when a fan asked about the group’s fan meeting, the first in 3 1/2 years in Japan. “I am always amazed to see so many people come all the way to see us. And how all of them know my name,” said Bobby.

“Today we begin shooting and are taping the first group dance scene,” she explained before rehearsing with her bandmates.

“Along with my solo moves that combine powerful thrust of hands and legs, the intro part is one of my favorite,” said the performer.

The intro, full of impact, was not easy to pull off and Jeongyeon laughed guiltily when she could not stand still to strike an imposing pause. But it took only three takes for the girls.

“When watching the group choreograph scenes, finding a member who made a mistake is part of the fun. And making of the film lets you see how much fun we had and how hard we worked on it,” she told fans.

During shooting her solo scenes, the performer was surrounded by blood red roses exuding confidence and charm but when the camera turned off, the idol said, “It’s kind of lonely when I’m alone.”

“I think I had about five cakes today. I also had miyeokguk with my parents and will meet up with BTOB members for dinner tomorrow,” said the youngest member of the boy band thanking everyone for the congratulatory messages and gifts.

Sungjae could not repress a smile when a fan asked about his pet cat. “One of the fans sent me special chews for chubby cats made by a vet and Sami is gobbling them,” said the proud owner of the Bengal cat.
