While it may seem unrelated, Tiger JK has been outspoken about his love for BTS. He even buys albums for his staff!
I ordered two BTS CDs to trade cards with my stylists.. or to complete the collections for her 😆I work hard to be a good boss 🤣

Now, the group and he certainly don’t have a merely fan-artist relationship. In fact, BTS’s leader RM is quite the fan himself of Tiger JK. Not only that but the two are actually close friends!
Recently, Tiger JK revealed that RM contacted him. From there, they collaborated to co-write “Timeless.”
Then they started getting more and more famous. They became too famous. I gave up [on BTS featuring] and was finishing up my new album. Then, I got a text. ‘Why aren’t you sending me a song?’

These two truly have an amazing friendship. And it doesn’t end there. Tiger JK recently shared a heartfelt message about RM on Twitter, awarding him “best motivational brother.”
The best motivational brother awards goes to RM 🏆
Absolutely the most beautiful heart ❤️

Fans couldn’t help but be reminded of this iconic meme. Tiger JK definitely proves all our theories about RM; he’s truly an amazing individual.

This wouldn’t even be the first time that Tiger JK gave an unexpected award to RM! In 2019, he shared a shot of RM’s iconic reaction at 2018 MAMA in Hong Kong to his Instagram Stories, awarding him “this year’s best motivational image” award.
These two truly have mad respect for one another, and it’s clear that Tiger JK really cares for RM (we can’t blame him). It seems like he has rubbed off on BIBI because she recently revealed that she’s RM-biased too! Read more below:
