BTS’s maknae Jungkook celebrated his 23rd birthday on September 1. And while big time celebrities made sure to greet him publicly, it was the private message that Jimin gave him that’s making ARMYs all over cry.

The caption from Jimin reads, “Kookie-ah Happy birthday to you. It’s good to see you after I didn’t see you for a couple of days.” Fans immediately went investigative-mode and realized that Jimin may have flown over from Paris just to surprise his maknae.
haha… do you think… jimin told jungkook he won't be home for his birthday… and then surprised him just before the day ended while holding that smurf cake….

They believe Jimin may have hidden his tracks to make sure Jungkook thought he was really out of the country.
WHAT IF JIMIN PRE TOOK THAT VIDEO OF HIM IN PARIS TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE HE WAS STILL THERE AND TRICK JUNGKOOK, BUT HE WAS REALLY FLYING BACK TO SURPRISE HIM!?!?!

jimin prerecorded the paris video and said with a smirk at the end ‘lets grab a drink later’ ans posted it and probably told him sorry he wouldn’t be there and showed up with hobi and surprised jungkook goodbye world

The two definitely tried to one-up each other in terms of birthday gifts.
So JK booked a whole trip to Tokyo for JMs BD, took him out to Disney & filmed him throughout the whole day
& JM went to Paris, bought JK lots of gifts, flew all the way back to Korea & went straight to his house w/ a cake to surprise him
