    + Jin gave Sowon water bottles to then at an award show. BTS and GFRIEND even turned off every camera when they were filming “Happy Wednesday”. Which made fans annoyed and suspicous. (Bighit and Source Music CEO’s are best friends + their buildings used to be right beside each other. So the two groups is/was close. They have also looked a lot at each other. When Gfriend won an award, Jin forgot to sit down and had a big smile on his face while Sowon held her group’s speech
