While the BTS members are family to each other, they sometimes get shook by each other, and there have been plenty of moments where their leader, RM, surprised them!

BTS’s RM

Here are 4 of these moments.

1. RM’s amazing aim

In an episode of Run BTS!, the members were struggling with getting the hang of table tennis.

RM lost a match to Jimin, and he was given a chance to stay in the tournament by playing a consolation match against Jungkook and Jin. The game they played was hitting the target, which was a paddle. RM surprised everyone when he hit the paddle not once but twice!

2. RM pointing out the unobvious

RM has an IQ of 148, and he has surprised the members several times with his intelligence. One time during an interview with Tokopedia, RM shared a similarity he found between BTS and Tokopedia.

RM stated that both Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS’s name in Korean) and Tokopedia have five syllables!

After RM said this, the members were “shocked,” especially Suga!

3. RM’s athletic abilities 

During BTS’s guest appearance in KBS Cool FM Kim Seong Joo‘s Gayo Plaza, host Kim Seong Joo commented that RM looked like he would be great at sports. The members, however, then quickly said that RM is actually bad at sports.

Jimin shared that he, too, thought RM was good at sports when he first met him. RM even told Jimin that he played basketball at school.

 

One day RM told Jimin that he should shoot a basketball with two hands, which isn’t the greatest way to shoot a basketball. After this, Jimin learned that RM wasn’t the greatest at sports.

4. RM’s score at an arcade basketball game

While sports aren’t RM’s forte, he once surprised the members with his skills at an arcade basketball game! RM faced off against J-Hope, and J-Hope scored 253 points while RM scored 62 points. RM then shared that he was playing around and asked if he could play the game again, but this time seriously. RM got another chance at the game, and he was not playing around!

 

RM was so serious and good that the members burst out laughing.

 

RM ended with 293 points, and the members found this both hilarious and amazing.
