If Run BTS! viewers have learned anything from the show, it’s that nothing is more important to BTS than food!
In Episode 140, BTS teamed up with tvN‘s The Game Caterers to play games hosted by producer Na Young Suk. BTS was presented with a barbeque buffet that could be theirs for the eating, but only if they scored well on the “Figure Quiz”. Every time BTS failed to name a celebrity, they lost ingredients for the barbeque.
By the end, they had little more than a few mushrooms, kimchi, and rice, but the staff gave them an opportunity to negotiate with Na Young Suk for pork belly strips. Jimin took it upon himself to spearhead this mission, but he needed help from Jin and V.
Jin, who has proved his business savvy many times, was happy to volunteer his talents. “I’m good at making a deal,” he said. J-Hope trusted this trio with the task, saying, “Jimin, Jin, and V will determine our destiny.”
After much negotiation, they came to an agreement with Na Young Suk. BTS would play one final game. If they won, they would get to eat pork belly. If they lost, they would shoot a promotional video for The Game Caterers’ YouTube channel — for free!
BTS’s appearance fees are in the millions, but the members really wanted more food, so who was getting the better deal? Naturally, Na Young Suk was skeptical. Would all seven members really agree to this?
Jimin, V, and Jin sold BTS out without a second thought, but Suga objected!
“Hey!” he shouted from the barbeque. “You have no self-respect?” Jimin yelled back, “Aren’t you hungry? We are trying hard. Don’t you whine there.”
“I wanted to say we can’t do it because it hurts our pride,” Jin later confessed. “But we will do it.” In the end, everything worked out in BTS’s favor. Suga saved the group’s dignity by correctly guessing Bart Simpson.
