Kim Taehyung of BTS says “Mahal ko kayo,” makes Filipino ARMYS go crazy

Filipino fans of the South Korean supergroup BTS were over the moon as Kim Taehyung, also known as V, said “Mahal ko kayo!” (“I love you all!”) during a live chat session on the video streaming service Vlive Saturday afternoon (Philippine time).

With Etta James’ “At Last” playing in the background, Kim Taehyung said “I love you” in different languages including Korean, Spanish, and Thai. BTS leader Kim Namjoon, who uses the stage name RM, later joined the livestream where they sang Boz II Men’s “End of the Road.”

Filo ARMYS were quick to point out that Kim Taehyung has been saying “Mahal ko kayo” in their recent live videos, although there was a time when they mistranslated it as “Thank you.”
