BTS recently returned to the music scene with their album BE. Their early promotions included a global press conference, a countdown broadcast, and a live show with fans.

Though Suga couldn’t make it to any of these schedules, BTS made sure to bring him along with them. In the live show, they did so literally with his cardboard cut-out.

At first, the members praised the rapper and his panel, calling it “cute”.

They even took individual photos with it, posing as if Suga were really beside them.

Maknae Jungkook made sure to take care of his hyung by “feeding” him a slice of pizza.

Towards the end, however, the members couldn’t help but handle the cut-out with less tender loving care. They put lipstick not on his lips, but right above his mouth, smearing it down his face.

They carried him lightly on their backs as if he could fall at any moment…

…and they made him lie down on the floor.

No one bothered to clean up the makeup on the panel even towards the end of the show!

Scolding the members, Suga posted online to please “be good to the panel…” after watching the chaotic event.
