January 2017 to January 25, 2018

This list contains much of the research I collected during the last year for the fourth installment of the Answer series.

I began writing this story in November 2016. I titled the series 'Answer' during the Wings era, before Love Yourself had ever been mentioned. Over the last two years, during the course of the writing, many odd alignments and coincidences happened that I don't fully understand. I listed these instances in the end notes of the chapters. It was pretty interesting to me, how it kept happening. Anyway, I took it as a sign that I was on the right track. I hope these stories moved you in the way that they moved me. I've loved writing in this world. I'm definitely going to miss it.

Anyway, here's all my research - the complex, chaotic details of the lives of BTS. There's far more than this, but you can see they have become very, very busy. May they take care of themselves and live a life well beyond even their brightest dreams.

Much love ❤

  • 2 April: 2017 BTS LIVE TRILOGY EPISODE III THE WINGS TOUR In Anaheim – CA

- On 2 April, Jhope, Jungkook, and Taehyung go to Santa Monica Pier in California. They arrive in Hawaii wearing the same clothes they wearing when they were in CA. Later, Jin posts selfies alone from the Santa Monica Pier. I'm sure they were there at the same time. UPDATE: Later they posted pictures of all of them together, including this image of Seokjin showing a seashell to Taehyung @bts_twt (https://twitter.com/BTS_twt)

  • 5 April: Shouting BTS Out in the Center of Hawaii

As referenced in What If, Maybe? Chapter 11: https://archiveofourown.org/works/14818673/chapters/34910942 At the end of this chapter is the point in which events in Bon Voyage 2 begin to go a little odd. This chapter relies heavily on things we can see in the episodes... Jimin and Jungkook playing footsie under the table at the pizza place, Jungkook calling Jimin baby on the beach, Taehyung getting sulky on the night of their cooking challenge, and Hoseok and Seokjin freaking out over a gecko that gets into their room.

It's the next morning as it's revealed in the behind cam versus the episode where I think the producers might have had to edit something out, because it doesn't quite line up, judging by what they're wearing and the angle of the light as the camera crew films them waking up.

Chapter 12: https://archiveofourown.org/works/14818673/chapters/34967813 This is where I think most of the weirdness in BV2 happens. The filming takes around 11 days, and somewhere around this day, there is a place where the episode footage doesn't quite line up with the Behind the Cam reel, based on the lighting in their rooms and the clothes they're wearing. This is where I got the idea that maybe they wound up staying an extra day in Hila.

  • Japanese version of Blood, Sweat, & Tears released. My best guess is that it was filmed in March, earlier than Yoongi's birthday. The outside shots appear to still be very cold. The camera people are in their heavy coats, which I would think would make it late February, early March. Possibly around the same time as Spring Day and Not Today.

At 14:56, Taehyung says, “We need two people to hold Taehyung-ie. If you look at the amount of muscles, it has to be Jin-hyung and Jungkookie.” Immediately, the director says, “Jiminie and Jungkookie will hold Taehyungie.” Like, what is that about? Thank you, Fabi, for showing me this (https://twitter.com/trashfortaejin)

- This is the video where Jin and Tae have to fight. It takes a toll on Jin, as evidenced in a previous scene when Tae reveals that Jin cried. Taehyung says that he and Jin have never had 'this kind of fight before.' We learned later about the bitter argument they had back in New Jersey while they were on tour. Also, at the end of the video, when V is talking, he's wearing Jin's coat over his own jacket. https://save-me-my-seoul.tumblr.com/post/178426639090/taehyung-wearing-seokjins-coat I have a link of Seokjin wearing this coat? https://save-me-my-seoul.tumblr.com/post/178492109200/seokjins-coat-photo-cred credit for this post goes to https://twitter.com/pinkpiece_jin

  • : How do you keep in touch with your family?

A: I’m someone that keeps in touch with my parents often. I usually chat with my mom for about 30 minute to an hour; sometimes even longer for about 2 hours. We just talk about whether we’ve been well. I talk with my dad about once a week. (Interviewer: Wouldn’t your dad feel very lonely?) I have my reasons for that. When I talk to my mom, it’s usually during dinner time so the two of them are together. I take that chance to speak to my dad as well. As referenced in What If, Maybe?

  • 19 December: Rolling Stones Magazine publishes Day in the Life of BTS, in which he describes Jin as “brooding”

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/inside-bts-mania-a-day-in-the-life-of-the-k-pop-superstars-w514229 Article refers to BTS' time in the US during their trip for the AMAs, mid-November. It also mentions the mouth ulcer that has been plaguing Taehyung off and on throughout the year, and may be related to him getting his wisdom tooth removed.

- KBS Song Festival - Seokjin is a co-MC https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_KBS_Song_Festival

- Seokjin confesses his love for Taehyung on a national broadcast https://youtu.be/TYcChvaLaV8

- BTS reaction: https://youtu.be/C-nbKHUncDU Of the many things I adore about this video, behold how at around 2:11, the video editors cover Jin’s exposed chest with a floating Jin head. He’s so modest, and also, thank you to the video editor for sparing our hearts because we might have died.

At 2:57, Taehyung says, “Our Jin-hyung is funny at home, but outside, he is always nervous and shy.”

At 6:03, the look on Taehyung’s face.

No broadcast shows the kiss or the hearts that Seokjin throws after the love confession.

At 6:20, someone says, “As expected, the world’s #1 handsome man is different.

At 6:22 (off-screen) Taehyung says, “Hyung, we’re even.”

When Jin returns from the stage, Taehyung is not in the room. They go onto the stage afterward to perform Spring Day without the choreo.

At 9:24, sweet eye-contact moment between Taehyung and Jin. Is there some romantic tension there? I think so. As referenced in What If, Maybe? Chapter 51: https://archiveofourown.org/works/14818673/chapters/37458122
