Sometimes, even the best-laid plans backfire. Just ask Jimin!
In Episode 135 of Run BTS!, BTS continued their “Workshop Special” series with a scavenger hunt. They were tasked with hiding items associated with K-Pop and Korea. Afterward, each member had to look for the others’ items while hoping they wouldn’t find his.
After being psyched out by the staff, Jimin chose straw shoes as his item, via a cue card. He hid the shoes in a dustbin, thinking no one would look there. This bad decision was Jimin’s downfall!
Within minutes, J-Hope announced that he had found the straw shoes! To add insult to injury, he said, “What kind of an idiot hides the item in the dustbin?“…
…and the show’s editors roasted Jimin in the captions.
Unfortunately for Jimin, the fun at his expense didn’t end there. Throughout the episode, his members repeatedly brought up the straw shoes and the “idiot” who owned them.
So, to avoid suspicion, Jimin had to roast himself…while crying on the inside!
All that suffering would have been worth it if he had concealed his identity until the very end. As fate would have it, Jimin had as much difficulty hiding his secret from Detective Jin and Detective V as he’d had hiding his shoes from J-Hope.
Thanks to his members’ deductions, J-Hope correctly guessed that Jimin was the legendary straw shoe man. Oh, well. Better luck next time!
