The BTS boys are back with another episode of Run BTS! In the previous episode, we watched the boys compete in a icy arena for the gold, though not always gracefully. In episode 17 of Run BTS! the boys continue their competition, but this time, they’ve moved out of the ice and into a nice, warm arcade.
There are two main challenges for the first episode, and there will be more in the next episode. The first challenge is a DDR competition and the second challenge consists of a 1 v 1 basketball machine challenge for highest score.
The DDR challenge is hilarious. These amazing dancers struggle to find the rhythm and get the right steps. Their facial expressions through each round are absolutely hilarious as they stare at the steps in a mix of absolute awe and horror. Somehow, J-Hope falls behind and Jin jumps to the front of the line as DDR Champion.
The basketball challenge is even more baffling as they pair off into different sets, and Jin goes alone, to compete. They use Suga, the team’s basketball expert, and Jungkook, the BTS official human tester, as the first round example. Somehow, V and Rap Monster manage to smack themselves in the face with the balls somewhere along the way. I will admit, I watched that a few times, just because it was too funny to not repeat.
All I can say about this round – Rap Monster and J-Hope, hot damn…
