Fans of BTS are probably the most spoilt fandom as BTS takes all their requests seriously and aims to deliver. That was certainly not the case for some of BTS’ songs. Songs from BTS studio-length albums have never been performed live and fans fear that they will always have a studio version to go back to with none of the members singing the song live.

After his last live stream concert with ARMYs, an ongoing joke in the fandom has been that Jungkook will choose anything over having to sing ‘Paradise’ live. Ever since hundreds of ARMYs plagued his live chat with a single request for ‘Paradise,’ and Jungkook ignoring that one request and picking up something else in its place, ARMYs have started manifesting their requests using ‘Paradise’ as a playful threat.

Fans use 'Paradise' to get their requests

Fans have been making requests from Jungkook with the subtext that if he did not fulfil those requests, he will have to sing ‘Paradise’ on live-stream. It initially seemed like Jungkook had been playing along with it. On August 31, fans started tweeting, “Jungkook post a selfie or we will get a Paradise live” and soon after that Jungkook posted a selfie before his birthday requesting fans to comment their messages for him.

Fans started getting delirious as they assumed Jungkook is playing along with this so he does not have to sing the song live. They then started trending ‘Paradise’ on Twitter saying they wanted to see Jungkook have a live stream before his birthday or he will have to sing ‘Paradise.’

As one could have guessed by now, the live stream happened and fans were convinced they have a new power of manifestation. During his live stream, Jungkook first played a song he made for ARMYs based on the messages they posted under his selfie. Then he started talking to fans and reading their comments. Just as expected, requests started pouring in for him to sing songs by BTS live. During the live stream, Jungkook sang BTS’ ‘Paradise’ finally letting fans rejoice.

When a lot of the comments read ‘Heartbeat’ Jungkook was confused about fans requesting a random song, not by BTS. After a Google search, Jungkook finally understood that it was one of their songs from ‘BTS World OST’ and he went on to sing that for fans. At this point, fans were overwhelmed and starting pouring in requests for Jungkook to sing on his birthday. Jungkook sang BTS’ songs like, ‘Dimple’, ‘Sea’, ‘Born Singer’, ‘Pied Piper’, ‘Two! Three!’ ‘Autumn Leaves’ and many others fulfilling ARMYs requests.

At 12 am KST (11 PM ET) as Jungkook was getting his cake ready to celebrate his 25th birthday, J Hope knocked on his door and congratulated him on his special day. Fans were quick to notice how kind-hearted J Hope’s act was as he brought Jungkook a cake and was the first member of the septet to wish the maknae a happy birthday.

After ‘Paradise’ and ‘Hearbeat’ finally had a live performance, ARMYs picked a new fighter. “Louder Than Bombs’ is one of BTS’ relatively newer songs and as fans requested for the song, it seemed that Jungkook playfully avoided singing it. The reason for this is unknown but ARMYs have a new weapon to keep the playful banter with Jungkook going.

One smart fan figured out the real reason why Jungkook never sang ‘Paradise’ in the past. “So the reason why we never get Paradise live or the boys never know what song it is, it's because we're keep saying the english title "PARADISE" while the official title written in hangul called "낙원" (NAKWON) :") it's our fault sksjksjsksk not bts.”
