BTS‘s Jungkook brought back a five-year-old meme in the latest episode of Run BTS!

In Episode 127, BTS struggled through the “Lucky Seven” game they started in the previous episode. This involved hula hooping, stacking cups, and other simple but insanely difficult challenges.

Toward the end of the show, Jimin and Jungkook made their closing remarks as sulkily worked on his penalty: a solo game of dominos. “If you want to do something, try hard until the end!” Jimin advised.

This inspired Jungkook to say, “Do you know why Usain Bolt was Number 1? Because he went until the end.” Usain Bolt is a famous sprinter, widely regarded as the greatest sprinter in history.

The Golden Maknae was referencing a quote by rapper Swings. In 2016, Swings mentioned Usain Bolt during his performance at a university. He said, “Do you know why Usain Bolt is the fastest runner in the world? It’s because he went all the way.”

Soon after, the quote went viral in Korea. It was so popular that Swings and rapper Han Yo Han even turned it into a song with a funny track and field themed music video.

Not long after Run BTS! aired, Swings shared a clip of Jungkook and wrote, “Whoa, BTS’s Jungkook-nim. Daebak, man.”
