We already know members of BTS are not as 'innocent' about fan activities as they pretend to be and Jimin is living proof of the fact that the members know everything that fans do online. From being in on Twitter fan wars to knowing the newest TikTok trend ARMYs are performing, members of BTS keep themselves updated about social media trends. Jimin, on the other hand, is usually known as a “trendsetter” online because anything that he does goes viral.

It was Jimin who started a new dance trend at the ‘PTD on Stage - Seoul’ concert that became viral with millions of fans posting a video on social media as they mimicked Jimin’s moves. Fans started “slapping the air” just like he did on stage and the trend was such a hit that online news media started covering it too. Now, Jimin is joined by BTS’ sunshine and dance leader - J-Hope (Hoseok) as well as BTS’ in-house cat, Suga (Yoongi) as the three hop on the TikTok challenge bandwagon and dance to a BTS song. Jimin, J-Hope, and BTS’ maknae Jungkook are members of the '3J' dance line, but the video sees Suga replacing Jungkook in the lineup as the trio groove to their own hit single, ‘Like’.
