1001 untold stories of Kpop backstage: BTS has to use respirators, Rosé (BLACKPINK) dries her top with a fan
The untold moments behind the stage pique the interest of fans.
BTS collapsed backstage, had to use respirators
In 2020, a scene was retold by two YouTubers that BTS collapsed after going to the backstage area. They said: “I was backstage, and of course they had rehearsals and practice, but what really shocked me was when BTS was on stage, they were so powerful and perfect, but when it all ended they said thank you and gave their final greetings, waving to fans as they got off stage, and as soon as they were no longer in the camera frame they all collapsed on the floor. The staff was fanning them, cooling them down. Suga was literally supported by staff members, who linked their arms with him to hold him up.”
He continued, “It was obvious that they gave 100 percent. And then, they were carried to the waiting room. It would’ve been touching to even someone who’s not a fan,” adding “the fans don’t see it happening though, do they?” to which the first responded “since it happened backstage, the fan’s would never know.”
In another performance, the reporter at the scene recounted the moment they witnessed BTS had to use respirators at the “Golden Disc Awards” due to a demanding performance.
He said: “Was it the Golden Disk Awards? I’m not sure, but I was behind the stage when they were performing. BTS had done two or three songs before coming down from the stage. As soon as they got off the stage, they put on these oxygen masks,” adding, “They hold themselves together on the stage, but when they come down, they let go and need respirators to help them breathe. I’ve never seen idols like that before…”
Similar incidents happened before in 2017 in a Chilean concert. At that time, Jungkook fainted and had to use a respirator. In the same year, the members collapsed after giving a series of performances at the MAMA Awards.

A hilarious moment of ITZY sharing the pink wall at the Music Core to take photos
