BTS’s RM held a live stream in light of his birthday on September 12 and thanked fans for all the birthday wishes.
During this short live stream, he gave updates on the upcoming album, what books and shows he’s been watching lately, and even admitted he knew about the memes going around about him.

Recently during an interview, RM wore a tight-fitting black shirt that accentuated his buff physical. This screen shot became a hot issue on social media with people starting the ‘회원님 시리즈’ (personal trainer/client series).

This became so popular that it even trended on Twitter and Big Hit Entertainment even used the series name in the hashtag for RM’s birthday post (#회원님생일축하많이해주실거죠).
사랑보다도 더 사랑합니다.

In the live stream he mentioned that he found about the meme through a friend that told him about it. He clarified that it was because of his tight inner shirt that made it look like he had buff arms.
[속보] RM, ‘회원님 시리즈’ 알고 있다
아 네, 회원님 시리즈는 저도 알아요 이번에 이렇게 나온거… 팔뚝 이따만케 나왔는데 그게 사실 제가 제 몸이 갑자기 두 배로 커져서 막 팔뚝이 이만해진게 아니구 마침 안에 입었던 이너티 사이즈가 조금 작았던 것 뿐입니다 pic.twitter.com/fKEyf6jXm6

This meme even reached his health trainer, who made him work out even more in order to live up to the meme!
Trainer: Looks like you’re becoming a hot issue online? You’re going to have to work harder?
RM: Come on~ you know that I have nothing
Trainer: You’re going to have to work harder. Let’s do two sets more today!
남준씨 인터넷 보니까 난리 났던데요? 열심히 하셔야 겠던데?
아시잖아요 저 아무것도 없는거 ㅠ
남준씨 열심히하셔야겠어요 오늘 두셋트 더 합시다.

What’s hilarious is that while RM was busy clarifying the meme, fans were able to get a new screen shot for the meme!
