On May 7, BTS won first place at Mnet’s “M!Countdown” with their latest song “I NEED U.” While leader Rap Monster was speaking for the group and giving thanks for the award, V could be seen mouthing the lyrics to BIGBANG‘s “Loser.”
Some viewers have commented that his behavior was ridiculous and disrespectful.
The singer explained his behavior in a tweet through BTS’s official Twitter and said, “I listen to these three songs before I go to sleep every night. Since I like it so much I always sing it. I was so happy when we won that I sang without knowing. Oh no.. I love [BIGBANG]. [BIGBANG] is really cool!”
He also shared a picture of his playlist in the same tweet.
In another tweet he posted, “I am really thankful for the first place prize. I will work harder.”
