Welcome back to this week’s fun story! This week we bring you a compilation post full of the hilarious incidents that brought many to laughter and shock on the eventful day that was yesterday’s 1st April 2015; April Fools Day.
Check out the crazy list here:
1. JYJ’s Junsu announces he’s getting married?
It seems like JYJ is receiving a lot of news in the media recently with the sad news of Jaejoong’s recent enlistment and now most recently, Junsu with news of his sudden engagement to be married!
He posted a heartfelt message to his fans on twitter reading: ‘This might be out of the blue… But I’m getting married. My fans wanted me to get married when I was 77 years old and I apologize that I couldn’t follow through. I have dreams and hopes as a head of a household so you will understand, right? Please support me^^’
(갑작스러우시겠지만.. 사실 저 결혼합니다. 팬분들이 77살때 결혼하기를 원하셨지만 지켜드리지못해 죄송해요. 저도 제 인생속에 한 가장으로서의 꿈과 삶이 있으니 이해해주실꺼죠? 축하해주세요^^ 모바일청첩장- http://bit.ly/1hrIdLs)
To which he posted a link at the end of the message a ‘mobile wedding invitation’ for surprised fans to check out… only to discover it was a huge prank all along.
The link was actually a link to Naver that defined ‘April Fool’s Day’ in Korean to which the first line reads ‘April 1st. It’s a day where you pull pranks with a light joke or a harmless fib. It originated from the West and it is also known as ‘April Fools Day’.
2. Super Junior’s Leeteuk announces the group’s comeback being next month?
Leeteuk is known to have done previous April Fools pranks on his fans when in 2012 he posted the first three digits of his phone number to his twitter and left the rest untold. To which fans guessed the last four digits being 1004 seeing as the singer’s twitter username was @special1004 causing fans to unfortunately contact another poor citizen with the same number with their adoring messages. Leeteuk apologised for the inconvenience, of course and posted his real number on twitter asking fans to only call him once which shocked fans that the singer would share that.
The singer this year however posted a picture of himself on his Instagram saying ‘Comeback confirmed!! Next month is the comeback. #comeback’.
He then posted the following trending picture of fans unsafely leaning over a ledge to see the members being scanned by a metal detector in an airport with the message: ‘Guys it’s dangerous!!!! Don’t do that!!! Your oppa’s are coming back so save your enthusiasm!!!..^^ COMING SOON..‘.
However seeing as this is naturally the holiday of trolling fans were not phased already aware Super Junior would have a comeback later this year for their 10th anniversary in November.
3. The Bangtan Boys turn into… Bangtan girls?
It seems like on April Fool’s Day many ARMY’s got a hilarious surprise upon logging into the group’s fancafe to find the members had now changed the homepage image from Bangtan boys to Bangtan girls! Fans may recognise these outfits of the boys as some they’ve crossdressed in previous shows and appearances such as the beautiful ladybug fairy V, the bubbly maid-Suga and the shy Sailor Moon cosplayer Rap Monster.
But wait- there’s more.
BTS had even more fun on their twitter when Jin managed to tap into the boys’ official Twitter account first. The member didn’t even attempt to disguise the who got into the account, changing the profile image to Mario and the display username to ‘Super Mario’, his well known obsession as well as then tweeted, ‘Three mushrooms. Give them now’. It wasn’t difficult for fans to decipher which member did that causing much amusement among ARMY’s.
But wait- there’s still more.
The hilarious member decided to go even further with his prank and log into the Twitter page once more later on, change the photo again, and the display name this time to ‘Kim Jin‘, and tweet again, ‘Hello, it’s the webtoon artist Kim Jin. I like Jin from BTS. Because we have the same name ^^.’
However it seems like BTS’ Twitter trolling still wasn’t over.
BTS’ leader Rap Monster decided to also join in with the fun and posted the following prank message: ‘I was eating tteokbokki and got my tongue cut off, so I won’t be able to rap anymore. I’m writing a bland apology. – Rap Monster.’ (Tteobokki is a Korean dish containing spicy rice cakes).
The rapper must have felt his message wasn’t strong enough to be a prank through the use of the witty pun and wrote another message saying: ‘Ah, but the tteokbokki was spicy,’
He then concluded with his last message of: ‘To be honest, I did that because I felt like I should do at least something (confession).. Have a beautiful night..’
The boys still hadn’t had enough and neither did their company! Changing the display photo, and display name to BTS_Secret Service and the username to @bts_bighit. Check out the photo below!
The tweets have received a heavy amount of response and laughter, we look forward to more from the hilarious and crazy members of BTS.
