For SBS‘s Gayo Daejeon, TXT performed an amazing cover of BTS‘s “Boy In Luv” that would’ve made their seniors proud.
In the process, Taehyun discovered the answer to a mystery many fans hadn’t known about the song’s lyrics.
After the song’s intro, they shout, “Fire!” before it progresses into the chorus. At least, that’s what fans thought they were saying. Taehyun revealed that wasn’t the lyric at all.
Instead, BTS had been shouting the phrase “Oppa-ya.” As an ARMY himself, Taehyun couldn’t believe it and had to confirm it with the PD-nim. He wasn’t the only one that was shook; the revelation left fans in shambles.
Learning this after five years since the song’s release had them questioning if they’d been living a lie.
….I’ve been an army for 4 yrs…and this is the first time I hear this information. it’s been all a lie omg
