Big Hit Entertainments golden group, BTS, may be attending the annual Billboard Music Awards ceremony according to this Tweet.

Until today, however, it was unclear whether BTS would be one of the select guests to be invited to the prestigious ceremony. Thanks to a zealous fan who tweeted the president of Dick Clark Productions (the company that organizes the Billboard Music Awards), BTS fans now have an answer to that question.

The idol star prepared a special ceremony in the rain instead by sliding down the field. Following the event, her ceremony gained great attention.

During Naver 'V' live on the same day, Dahyun talked about her special ceremony and said, "I heard the baseball players do sliding when games get canceled due to rain. So I said I wanted to try too and they happily allowed me. I appreciate the LG team (for letting me slide)."
