Yes, yes, you’re welcome – and now get ready to scream “SAME” 18 times with this list of relatable tweets from the BTS ARMY about the “Fake Love” music video:
1. The intro that always ends us all
— ً (@laughkpop) May 18, 2018
We’ve got to admit – hearing that trademark BigHit intro gets us shaking everytime! We could literally translate it to Bang PD warning us to get ready and buckle up for a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
2. JeOn JuNgKoOk StOp!!!
— jungkook pics (@kookpics) May 18, 2018
Who told Jeon Jungkook to keep on raising his shirt?! We just wanna talk.
3. All Hail King Namjoon!
RIP NAMJOON STANS

Kim Namjoon is a masterpiece. That’s it. That’s the article.
4. Petition for Hoseok to be the new Snickers endorser
— ? (@taesretro) May 18, 2018
Oh, so we all thought Hoseok only got one Snickers bar in exchange during the teaser? Well, apparently not – BTS will go as extra as making him lie in an entire pile of Snickers!
5. Arrest these boys
…they committed several crimes including stealing the ARMY’s hearts and murdering us with the looks they’re serving.
6. Seokjin? The visual god AND the vocal god?
— ًmaro STREAM EPIPHANY (@youthsope) May 18, 2018
Get you a guy who can do both, right? Jin’s vocals really did shine in “Fake Love”, so we’re even more excited with what the entire album has in store for us.
7. We don’t encourage cursing but… well…

Are there any other words to describe this? Are there any other words you could say after this scene from Min Yoongi?
8. Call the ambulance, y’all
— ʆųℓïε ˡᵒᵛᵉˢ ʲᶤᵐᶤᶰ (@PJiminGalaxy) May 18, 2018
These guys don’t just take our breaths away – they also make our hearts beat so fast we’re not sure it’s even healthy anymore.
9. Even if we watch it again, and again, and again, we probably won’t get tired of it ~
— jungkook being extra (@kookbeingextra) May 18, 2018
Honestly, just put the entire music video on loop. Thank you.
10. RIP Replay button
RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU HAD TO WATCH THE FAKE LOVE MV 8 TIMES. ONE FOR HOSEOK, ONE FOR YOONGI, ONE FOR NAMJOON, ONE FOR JIN, ONE FOR TAEHYUNG, ONE FOR JUNGKOOK, ONE FOR JIMIN, AND ONE FOR SEVEN OF THEM #iVoteBTSBBMAs @BTS_twt
— 대구 boys (@voyagemyg) May 18, 2018
Really though, how many times have you seen the music video?
11. We knew it – “Fake Love” is definitely the evil twin of “DNA”

— nana (@guknim) May 18, 2018
Can you notice the stark difference? We’re s-h-a-k-i-n-g.
12. Literally everything holds a meaning – even the choreography!
— 민지 [HIATUS] (@minmeraki) May 18, 2018
Legend says that if you look up the word “well-planned” on the dictionary, you’d surely see a picture of BTS.
13. Theorists are on a roll
Sand is often a metaphor for the passing of time (as in an hourglass), especially with regard to eventual destruction (as mountains and pyramids turn to sand over time). That metaphor usually implies the passage of thousands of years.@BTS_twt #iVoteBTSBBMAs️ pic.twitter.com/M52toxERZp
— ㅤㅤ ㅤ (@sugagum) May 18, 2018
Like we said, everything holds a meaning and ARMYs have already long proven that they are not ones to shy away from decoding the symbolizations behind BTS’ music videos.
14. Why can’t Jimin ever seem to escape water?
— jimin pics (@parkjiminpics) May 18, 2018
Really, just give this poor, unfortunate soul a break – when will he ever stop getting drenched in H2O?
15. Speaking of water, we might just have uncovered another literary piece they may have used
— iylia ? (@iyliasyazwanie) May 18, 2018
Yes, that literary piece is none other than Avatar: The Last Airbender. Would one of them actually be the Aang that saves us all?
16. Introducing the highest-budgeted film of the year
— epiphany (@ksjhype) May 18, 2018
Yep, BigHit did NOT hold back.
17. I’m fine (SAVE ME!!)
— ً (@ygistears) May 18, 2018
Honestly though, we did not notice this, and thanks to this tweet, we got to watch the music video again just to turn our phones upside down.
18. Bless the heavens
raise your hand if youre having a spiritual out of body experience right now
— EPIPHANY (@780613) May 18, 2018
