Recent ‘Bangtan Bomb’ amasses 1 million views in a day

K-pop juggernaut BTS, otherwise known as the Bangtan Boys, has made various efforts to better communicate with their fans. And one of them is “Bangtan Bomb.”

It refers to a short video that features BTS members having fun behind the scenes of music shows and live stages.

And the latest Bangtan Bomb video spreads across the social media as two BTS members of Jungkook and Jimin review fast food while the former talks a lot about the hot dogs.

Earlier this week, Big Hit Entertainment shared the video where Jimin takes a bite of his hamburger. With his mouth full, the BTS lead singer gives a thumb’s up. Big Hit is an agency of the seven-piece boy group.

Then, Jungkook tries out his hot dog before coming up with a detailed review.

In the middle of the 2-minute, 14-second clip. Jimin swaps out Jungkook’s hot dog for his burger.

And the behind-the-scene video of a BTS lunch break fascinates the K-pop act’s fans dubbed ARMY. It is short for Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth.

The YouTube video racked up more than 1 million views in a day.

The way Jungkook waited for Jimin to switch his hot dog to a hamburger so he can eat again was so adorable. I love Jimin and Jungkook,” a fan said.

I don’t like to see people eating. But I love to see Jungkook or any other Bangtan member eating,” another said.

Over the past month, BTS had its first extended break since its debut in 2013. The idol group plans to perform in Saudi Arabia and Seoul next month.
