A day after the Grammys, BTS was in LA for iHeartRadio Live, continuing promotion for their upcoming album Map of the Soul: 7, due to be released on February 21. I spent the day after the Grammys still in full-blown swoon over their performance and, in particular, Taehyung’s (aka V) hair. Which is making my friends not want to be friends with me anymore because all I’ve been doing is messaging them about my new crush on Taehyung and sending them different angles of him on stage. When you have a crush, even if it’s on someone who will never know who the f-ck you are, all you want to do is talk about it, constantly. Also, my friend Jess Allen pointed out to me yesterday that I have a crush glow. The crush glow is a real thing. When you have a crush, it shows on your face. I have a Taehyung crush glow right now which makes me a total f-cking loser but, you know, I’m not going to pretend I’m cool sh-t when I’m so far from cool sh-t it’s so beyond embarrassing, it’s a word that hasn’t been invented yet.
Anyway, last night, after Duana and I wrapped recording on this week’s episode of Show Your Work, I had every intention of finishing the last two episodes of Cheer on Netflix which is so f-cking good, if you haven’t started, you need to make time in your life. Before hitting play though, I decided, for fun, thinking it would just be a five minute delay, to google Jungkook and Taehyung, now my two favourites. Well. An hour later, when Duana texted to check up on my Cheer progress (she’s obviously such a Monica), I had to sheepishly reply that “ummm… I got distracted”. She knew immediately what I was up to and, amazingly, because she is a good friend, decided to humour me when I sent her the video that sent me into a YouTube spiral. Her first response was “I have to be honest”. Obviously I thought she was about to tell me I need help. But then she followed that up with “I have my doubts about the love but I love this video format. I want to fall in love with couples where someone squeals over text”. Monica through and through. Sasha, on the other hand, complained to me that seven minutes was too long and she couldn’t support it. Sasha is LaDarius. Sasha is not getting a Christmas present this year. Kathleen’s reply was a curt “Go to bed”. Kathleen is Kapena. Me?
OK but seriously, don’t you think watching these two be tactile with each other can heal the world?
This will pass (I think). Because I am fickle. Last week I was all over a Chinese actor from one of the dramas I was watching but then he changed his hair and now it’s over. Also I’m not sure if he has BTS’s work ethic. BTS has the Cheer work ethic. Monica would 100% approve of how hard they work and how much they rehearse. I’ll leave you now with my current favourite meme:
