I can’t believe Hoseok won an award for having pink hair

Jimin: Hiding his boner after seeing Hoseok with pink hair

Jin: Praying and thanking the Lord to have been blessed with the divine aesthetic of Hoseok having pink hair

V: “This stage is a work of art - oh no wait…. That’s Hobi’s reflection” 

Rapmon: Protecting his eyes from the rays of light in its purest form that shine out of the back of Hoseok’s head.

Suga: cries out for the first time in 21 years after seeing Hoseok. Is reborn. Realizes he has not lived until this day. Feels cleansed. Is able to open up for the first time in his life. Will name each of his future children “Hoseok with pink hair”.   

Tag yourself, I’m Suga.
