Popular K-pop band BTS recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary. On Sunday, they released their book Beyond the Story: 10-Year Record of BTS and fans cannot keep calm. According to BigHit’s press release, Beyond the Story is the first official book of BTS, co-authored by members RM, Jimin, J-hope, Jin, Suga, Jungkook and V. The book contains a chronological summary of BTS’ music career from their pre-debut days to the present.
A part of the press release read, “Please look forward to the vivid voices of BTS shared in this book, and we sincerely thank ARMY for continuing to support BTS and their journey.”
Many stories from the book have already surfaced online. A user on Twitter has shared a story about a fight between V and Jimin over dumplings. While filming Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth, V had a challenging moment and feared that his performance would be criticised, potentially reflecting poorly on BTS. He struggled with expressing his feelings to the other members, feeling down and isolated as a result.

V said, “I was in the midst of juggling the Hwarang shoot and the tour, and that day, I finished the drama shoot and had to come right back to prep for the album … but I was so hungry. I hadn’t had a chance to eat. So I asked the manager to order some dumplings, and I was eating during choreography practice.”
The singer added, “But Jimin didn’t know my situation, so he said we should eat after practice, and we had a squabble. The hyoungs told us to talk it out among ourselves, so we came outside and talked, but we only talked about our own perspectives, so we just kept repeating the same things over and over again.” V said that the fight was resolved a few days later over drinks.
