BTS members are finding that food from their home country can become a great comfort when staying overseas. Currently in New Jersey, for the group’s ongoing world tour, Jin and Jimin greeted fans all around the world via V Live while delving into their favorite Korean food in their hotel room.

“So here I’m eating American-style Korean food. Well, it’s actually Korean style. This brings me back to Korea. I can see Gangnam station right now,” said Jin while eating cooked octopus and rice.

Jimin, who was in the other room watching Jin’s meokbang in real time, came over to join his bandmate. Sharing dishes together, the two comfortably chit-chatted about various topics, ranging from food to their recent shows in the US.

As Jimin told Jin that his parents came to the group’s recent show, Jin said, “My family also often come to my show, but I always fail to find them in the audience. My mother told me that she was waving her hands, and I told her, ‘Mom, everyone’s doing the same thing there, which makes it more difficult to find you. Don’t move, that will be better.”

BTS’ world tour will take the group to Brazil, United Kingdom, France and Japan through June.

Yoon Ji-sung shares meaning behind fan song ‘Winter Flower’


Yoon Ji-sung is now in the army, but he made sure fans don’t feel his absence too much by releasing a special clip via V Live.

In the video that captured Yoon recording his latest digital single “Winter Flower,” the singer is featured explaining the meaning of his new song.

“I wrote the lyrics and decided on the title by myself. I wrote every line thinking about my fans,” he said. The warm ballad song delivers Yoon’s message to fans before his enlistment and his own story of how he endured his grueling trainee years and finally bloomed like a flower. Singer-songwriter Coffee Boy helped him compose the track.

“Actually, I used to get consoled listening to Coffee Boy’s ‘I’ll Be on Your Side,’ and I feel really grateful for receiving a song from him. I hope my fans could feel the same comfort with my new song while I’m gone,” he added.
