"I knew eversince na sobrang big ng BTS and super happy ako na napili nila ang ViceCosmetics para i-collab.  Pero now ko lang talaga sila napanuod ng bongga and nakilala isa isa. At mas lalo akong naproud na may Vice X BT21 products!  Overwhelmed ako!" he said.

He also tweeted "I purple you!" which is an expression among the ARMYs.
