BTS is one of the biggest boy bands in the world right now. They have been all over the international map and leading the boys Jimin, V, Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, Jin is their beloved leader RM. Kim Namjoon aka RM rang in his birthday today so we thought what better day than today to look back at the times RM stood like a wall between BTS and the rest of the world. RM has always been protective of the BTS boys and the BTS ARMY and the septet’s leader is always applauded and looked up to for that.

RM had defended the band when their record-breaking views were questioned and also when BTS was swarmed with hate messages which he translated to positive ones.  Today, on Kim Namjoon’s birthday, let’s look at some of the moments that prove RM is the ultimate leader of BTS.

When he stood up for BTS

Joonie had recently made headlines when he defended BTS and ARMY against allegations that their music charts ae manipulated by ARMY. Kim Namjoon had told Billboard, “It’s a fair question. But if there is a conversation inside Billboard about what being No. 1 should represent, then it’s up to them to change the rules and make streaming weigh more on the ranking. Slamming us or our fans for getting to No. 1 with physical sales and downloads, I don’t know if that’s right … It just feels like we’re easy targets because we’re a boy band, a K-pop act, and we have this high fan loyalty.” 

BTS ARMY was enraged after this question was raised and even hashtags like Billboard Apologize To BTS has begun to trend.

Lets BTS have their fun

RM had once said in an interview that when BTS boys begin to goof around on stage or otherwise, he steps back likes to watch them as it makes him feel that choosing BTS was his best decision, “Everytime I see them having fun and doing crazy things among them, I walked away so I could observe them, and in those moments I realize that choosing them was my best decision.”

When he convinced the agency when J-Hope left

In an episode of Burn The Stage, BTS member J-Hope had revealed that he left Big Hit Entertainment (BTS’s agency) when he was a trainee. This had left the members disheartened, but Namjoon had convinced the agency to get J-Hope back, “I told them we needed Jung Hoseok (J-Hope’s real name). We need Jung Hoseok, we can’t make it without him. I worked really hard to convince them,” said RM.

Wanting J-Hope to do the acceptance speech when they won “Best Male Dance Performance Group”

RM is the only one who is quite good at English in BTS so he is often seen giving acceptance speeches internationally. But during the 2016 MAMA, BTS has bagged the Best Male Dance Performance Group award. It is no secret that J-Hope, Jimin and Jungkook lead the dance line of BTS and it was RM who had pushed J-Hope and the rest of the boys to give the acceptance speech.

It is no secret that RM has always put the boys before him and we have seen that on multiple occasions. Guess that is what makes him the perfect leader for BTS.

We wish Joonie a very Happy Birthday.
