The musicians could not stay still and burst into laughter barely 20 seconds into the livestreaming, tuning in from New York 10 minutes before it turned 2020 for theif fans in Korea.

"You must have been waiting for us for quite a while," said Jimin asking fans to understand that they are jibbering having woken up not long ago.

"I just woke up," said RM and J-Hope, still in his pajamas, complimented on his outfit saying that he looks great.

"I woke up 4 minutes before going live," confessed Jimin peeking from under his black cap.

They tried recalling their new year's resolution for 2019, and Suga said he managed to work out fairly regularly but could not keep up with learning English. Jungkook agreed with him, saying that his plan to improve English has been a definite fail.

"The only word I still remember is 'pardon,'" he said and Jimin cracked up.

The bandmates did the countdown together and shouted out to their fans around the world a happy new year.
