I love that JK is just as willing to push Tae into the spotlight for his talents and I love that equal balance and push and pull between them. It seems to me like this is a talent that not all the members are super familiar with, but JK seems to know it well with the way he volunteers Tae and then smirks to himself. They totally practice impressions together, you can’t change my mind.
The face Jungkook makes when the host mentions the idea of them wearing female clothing and costumes on stage during their concert SENDS ME😂 He’s quite clearly not interested in participating in such shenanigans and although BigHit has always protected them from having to partake in the more shippy, fan service-y activities that other groups used to endure, such as the suck and blow game, they did still make them do things like dressing up as girls for punishments. And I think Jungkook was in such a stubborn, hyper masculine mindset at the time that he was ABSOLUTELY against any situation like this. And while its totally fair to feel uncomfortable in such scenarios, because they are meant to be embarrassing after all, I think it’s amazing and wonderful how much Jungkook’s opinions on gender expression and norms seem to have changed since he was a teenager.
Also, it’s not a Taekook moment but I HAD to include the last two clips where the hosts are talking about how uncomfortable and confusing it feels when younger and newer artists greet them and give them a copy of their CDs. AND THEN AT THE END OF THE INTERVIEW YOONGI GIVES THEM A COPY OF DARK & WILD😂😂😂 I guarantee he wanted to die inside. Imagine how embarrassing that must have been for all involved. The two hosts basically telling the members about something they don’t like and then 10 minutes later Yoongi needs to do exactly what they said they don’t like😂 These are the kind of cringe and embarrassing moments I live for! ————————————————————————
