Jimin and V joked around behind the scenes of the ‘Dynamite’ music video
In between filming scenes for “Dynamite,” V and Jimin “took the microphone,” as seen during one chaotic Bangtan Bomb. Jimin started singing the lyrics to this new single, even changing some words to include the names of the BTS members.
“Yes, hello. The person who has Kim Taehyung’s phone, please come to the director’s chair. I repeat… Kim Taehyung’s phone,” V said into the microphone, according to a translation.
After getting his phone back, he thanked the staff and laughed with Jimin. Later, Jimin appeared alongside RM with his microphone still in hand. He repeated the lyrics to “Dynamite,” then he started improvising.
“Vice Principal [is] calling a student…,” Jimin said. “Kim Taehyung from 12th-grade class. Please come to the teacher’s lounge.”
V and Jimin created the sub-unit song ‘Friends’ off of ‘Map of the Soul: 7’
These idols appear in solo songs released in conjunction with BTS. V and Jimin also collaborated on a Map of the Soul: 7 track titled “Friends.” As a subunit nicknamed the “95s,” these singers had a relationship before debuting with BTS, even attending classes together.
“I remember our uniforms / Our memories are movies / The dumpling incident is a comedy movie,” the lyrics read, according to one translation. During one YouTube video, Jimin and V shared some of the inspiration behind this track.
“I liked it because it wasn’t predictable. It was so original,” V said. The singer even shared that he would “of course” collaborate with Jimin again. Of course, these idols appear on group BTS songs, like their recently released single, “Butter.”
The “Dynamite” music video is now available on YouTube. Music by BTS, including Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
