What matters most in the world of entertainment is the impact it brings to the audience, and the power it holds to spread that impact.
One of the things that I love about BTS is their versatility. They can absolutely do anything for the sake of entertainment, even if they’re asked to do something that’s not within their boundary of scope. When it comes to acting, only V has experience in the field because he played as one of the Hwarangs in the Korean Drama, Hwarang, and Jin who initially wanted to pursue acting was scouted to be an idol instead, so he didn’t get to pursue an acting career.
Seeing BTS doing role-playing on Run BTS is one of the best themes! Even if most members have admitted several times that they’re not into acting, they still do it anyway to make ARMYs happy. So, if you want to see them playing different roles through a skit, or an upgraded mafia game where they get immersed in their given roles and get into heated discussions with the other members to prove their innocence, then this is the article for you! This article contains all role-playing episodes on Run BTS!
1. Run BTS Episode 11: Back to School
On this episode, BTS creates the script themselves for a skit where they act as students in school! RM plays the nice but slow-witted student, Jin is the best-looking student and idol of the school, Suga portrays the role of a female transfer student, J-Hope plays an emo kid who’s into literature, Jimin plays as the classroom leader who always keeps an angelic smile on his face, V plays the smartest student with a pair of round-rimmed glasses and a book glued to his hand, and Jungkook plays a cold but kindhearted student!
2. Run BTS Episode 12: COPS
On this episode, BTS creates another script for a skit set in a police station! Jin, J-Hope, and Jimin play the role of criminals, while RM, Suga, V, and JK play the role of authorities! Just like the previous episode, they all just had fun in creating ridiculous crimes and ridiculous punishments to entertain ARMYs with their funny skit. If you want to see Jin, J-Hope, and Jimin dancing to reduce the time they serve in prison for crimes like setting fire to ARMY’s hearts, or for having wide shoulders and a well-sculpted face, then this is exactly the episode to watch! You’ll also get to see Jungkook slapping Jimin’s butt, which is one of my all-time favorites for I don’t know what reason.
3. Run BTS Episodes 47 and 48: Protect the BTS Village
On these episodes, BTS needs to find the outsiders who want to steal the stone “ARMY” which protects the village. This is like an upgraded mafia game where they find clues during the day then discuss them within themselves to uncover who the culprits are. RM works in an auto repair shop, Jin works in a bank, Suga works in a flower shop, J-Hope works in a supermarket, Jimin works as a delivery guy, V works in a bakery, and JK works as a cop. If you want to see a very heated discussion as they all express their thoughts on who they think are the culprits, then this is the best Run BTS episode to watch. You’ll find out who amongst the members are really good at playing innocent!
4. Run BTS Episodes 73 – 76: Run BTS Drama
On these episodes, BTS not only played different roles to portray different personalities of tenants in a boarding house. They also fulfilled the staff positions in shooting a sitcom that’s filled with ad-libs! At first, they start with a test to show off their acting skills by delivering famous lines from famous Korean Dramas. RM re-enacted “Fight My Way,” Jin re-enacted “Lovers in Paris,” Suga re-enacted “Boys Over Flowers,” J-Hope re-enacted “Deep Rooted Tree,” Jimin re-enacted “Guardian,” V re-enacted “Moon Embracing the Sun,” and JK re-enacted “Kill Me, Heal Me.” In watching the first episode of Run BTS Drama, I realized how addicted I am to K-Dramas, considering the fact that I have watched all these seven Korean Dramas that they had to re-enact!
The production staff’s tasks were also done by our diligent members. RM was in charge of mental care, Jin was in charge of the props, Suga was the snack man, J-Hope was the stylist, Jimin was the standby and timer, V was the director, and JK fulfilled the most challenging one which is the role of a slater. He really deserves kudos for taking on the slate task with much dedication!
5. Run BTS Episodes 120 and 121: Reply BTS Village
On these episodes, someone broke the ARMY headstone and BTS needs to find the culprits! Legend says that misfortune happens when the headstone is broken, so our members show their analytical and investigative skills to identify who broke the headstone. RM plays the aspiring actor, Jin plays the detective, Suga plays the photographer, J-Hope plays the hairdresser, Jimin plays the neighborhood leader, V plays the rich man, and JK plays the gamer. I love their costumes here because the setting is in the 1970s!
6. Run BTS Episodes 145 – 147: BTS Village Joseon Dynasty
On these episodes, BTS goes further back in time, which is the Joseon Dynasty! And this is by far, my most favorite role-playing episode on Run BTS! RM plays the district magistrate, Jin plays the physiognomist, Suga is the village school teacher, J-Hope is the royal inspector, Jimin is the handsome bachelor, V is the warrior, and JK is the painter! They are all suspected thieves and need to find the ARMY headstone and identify who the thieves are. I think V is the funniest on this episode because he’s so immersed in his role as a warrior and yet, he couldn’t even put back his sword in his scabbard properly! Also, I love the part where V took to heart the members’ suspicion towards him just because he played with a cat and didn’t seem dedicated in the game. This was truly an iconic Run BTS episode series!
