In videos posted to Instagram on Wednesday (June 1), members Jimin and Jungkook of the K-pop septet were seen having the time of their life with the R&B singer at Bowlero Arlington’s arcade, where they hung out and tapped into their childish sides while playing games.
The video shows H.E.R. stepping up to the plate next to Jimin and Jungkook in front of a punching-bag game, which measures the force of one’s punch. Though she was nervous, H.E.R. ended up giving the game her best shot. The trio then moved over to the basketball game to see how many hoops they could shoot in rapid0-fire succession. Jungkook and Jimin had an equal pace, but H.E.R.’s tosses were slightly slower. In her Instagram Stories, the singer revealed that she and Jungkook tied for the same amount of baskets.
Jimin and Jungkook’s laidback meetup with the R&B singer comes after BTS’ high-profile visit to the White House to speak with President Joe Biden in honor of AAPI Heritage Month. During the visit, Jimin said, “We were devastated by the recent surge of hate crimes including Asian American hate crimes, but to put a stop to this and support the cause, we’d like to take this opportunity to voice ourselves once again.”
Jungkook added, “We still feel surprised that music created by South Korean artists reaches so many people around the world, transcending languages and cultural barriers. we believe music is always an amazing and wonderful unifier of all things.”
