And now, Voomvoom is going to begin the backstage story of BTS that would bring tears and laughter to ARMY. 
 
In Ep5 I can't stop released April 18, BTS preparing for their first stage in America taken place on March 28, 2017, was portrayed. They were to appear on Chicago JBTV's Secret Show. Ahead of the show, BTS ran into a problem; the stage was too small for them to perform.

"I'm worried the stage might look so poor," said RM and Suga also questioned, "Can we even dance there?" The width of stage was as tiny as 2~3 meters.

"I was mentally uneasy. I felt so anxious and nervous," said J-Hope in an interview and showed professionalism saying, "I wanted to go on stage perfectly prepared." Suga was also worried saying, "If we fall down or bump into each other, the audience won't understand us thinking the stage is too small. I feel so sorry for this situation because even when we prepare 100%, 120%, 150%, it's not enough for the stage."

They checked the choreography in the hotel room, trying as hard as they can to keep their positions. They were cautious not to crash into each other.

"At chances like this, it's insufficient even if we show 120% of our abilities but we won't be able to show ourselves properly," spoke RM while conversing with the agency's staff. The staff convinced BTS saying, "It's a place with 30 years of tradition in Chicago. There was a request demanding us to perform adjusted to the place and so we have to accept the local situation."

On March 28, 2017, the first day of broadcast finally came. BTS kept checking on choreography and went through several rehearsals for a perfect stage. After the stage, they checked themselves, continuously monitoring their performance.
