As if the internet needed one more earth-shattering fandom moment, the BTS singer flirted with pop phenom Olivia Rodrigo at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, sending some fans into a frenzy.
The seemingly scripted moment came early in the show’s prime time as BTS prepared to take the stage for a performance of its Grammy-nominated song “Butter.”
Some of the K-pop stars sat leisurely among A-listers while Jungkook was lowered from the rafters. But the camera lingered on fellow singer V (Kim Tae-hyung), who was sitting at the “Driver’s License” singer’s table. The two certainly put on a good show, which we suspect the producers created for a odds game.
Then he leaned forward and whispered something amazing in her ear. Yes, her jaw actually dropped. Then he handed her a note and went to the stage.
But what did he say? That was the million dollar question. Caps Lock Happy Rodrigo Fans, who later won the Grammy for Best New Artist, and the BTS Army tried to unpack the entire exchange on social media during the show.
“OH MY GOD BTS AND OLIVIA RODRIGO THE DUO I DIDN’T KNOW I NEEDED.” wrote a Twitter user.
“Olivia is so strong, if Taehyung had sat next to me and looked at me like that, I would have passed out.” joked another fan.
“Olivia has won twice, an award and an experienced flirt side of Taehyung…” wrote Another.
Here’s a look at more of their reactions.
