Friendships are not without their ups and downs, even among the closest of companions. In the realm of BTS, the bond between '95-liners V and Jimin is often regarded as one of the strongest connections within the group. Their camaraderie is so deep that they affectionately refer to each other as "soulmates." However, within the rich tapestry of their friendship, lies a legendary event known as the "Dumpling Incident." Despite occasional mentions of this incident throughout the years, the full story has remained elusive to ARMYs, leaving fans curious and eager to uncover its hidden secrets.
The dumpling incident even inspired two songs, “Friends” and “4 O’Clock.” Jimin and V sort of “recreated” it during their performance of “Friends” for 2020 BANGBANGCON.
Our memories are each a movie on its own/The dumpling incident would be a comedy movie yeah yeah — BTS’s Jimin and V, “Friends”
V responded to an ARMY’s post on Weverse asking, “Taehyung or Jimin, please explain the dumpling incident to us!” He gave a brief synopsis.
Later, V summarized the dumpling incident during a solo live broadcast. He explained that they had fought and didn’t even speak to each other for two days.
Jimin once gave his side of the story during a live broadcast. Yet, he did say that he couldn’t reveal the whole story, but it’s a very important problem to him.
During Jimin's solo live broadcast, an ARMY asked about the dumpling incident. Jimin said he actually would not talk about the dumpling incident. He explained that since it involves V and there are two sides to the story, he would have to include him.No, I can’t tell you because Hyung and I are 50/50 shareholders, so I need his permission. *laughs *— Jimin
The details of the incident is still unclear, but in a recent Weverse live, Jimin talked about how the fight made them understand each other better.
