BTS’ RM’s alleged ‘hickey’ spotted during livestream is driving fans crazy
It’s always a special moment for fans when BTS members go live.
On the evening of February 16, the group’s leader, RM, hosted a live stream to chat and share with fans.

Although the broadcast didn’t last long, it can be said that one thing caught the fans’ attention and the internet literally went crazy!
During the live stream, some fans noticed a spot on the idol’s neck and started texting in chat that RM had a hickey.
The moment he noticed… but y’all remember if it’s a hickey. Don’t hate Joon, he’s a grown man.#bts #namjoon #NAMJOON pic.twitter.com/IidFqxpupo

Since he was wearing a jacket, he sure thought it wouldn’t be visible, but as soon as he noticed and pointed it out to ARMYs, he started covering it with his hands before hanging up the call.
Namjoon conveniently uses his hands to block his hickey after someone asked him what happened to his neck 😂, then suddenly ends life a few minutes later. This was NOT on my bingo card for 2023 but I’m crying 😂👌 pic.twitter.com/i5BvbpKB33

As you can imagine, ARMYs were shocked that RM might have a hickey. The keywords “hickey” and “namjoon” were trending on Twitter.
Namjoon has a hickey and after Valentine’s Day he has bitches, y’all

However, during the live stream, RM explained that it was a bruise he sustained while doing Crossfit.
🐨 what happened to my neck?
🐨 I got a bit hurt doing CrossFit and trying to build muscle haha
Oh Namjoonie 🥺😭#NAMJOON #KimNamjoon #BTS #BTSRM #btspavedthewayforall #RM #NAMJOONLIVE #Weverse_LIVE #WeLoveYouNamjoon

Some ARMYs believe it and try to find evidence of contusions from CrossFit.
Ok, we should just believe what he said. Even if it’s a real hickey, he’s a grown man and can do whatever he wants… let’s not go crazy pic.twitter.com/PyX6xcPFtS

Others, however, are not so convinced by the explanation, especially because the bruise is too far from the collarbone for them.
Things that happened to me doing Crossfit:
– throw up
– almost passed out
– a big ass
Things that didn’t happen in Crossfit:

Either way, RM is a grown man. Whether it’s a hickey or not is up to him.
