With BTS arriving soon for the 2017 AMAs in the U.S., both media and fans from around the world are waiting patiently for the first sighting of the group.
Earlier in the day, Korean media shared the group’s travel plans, leading many fans to head out to the L.A. airport to welcome them for their historic moment. Their planned welcome hit a snag, however, when the group wasn’t sighted at the expected time.
With fans waiting at the airport and many others waiting for the proof shots, fans began to anxiously tweet #WhereIsBangtan. The result was a worldwide trend on Twitter as fans across the globe all joined in to give their own hilarious thoughts on where BTS actually is.
Check out some of the funniest posts below as we all ponder the mystery— where is Bangtan?
The wait is real, ya’ll.

Would another news story about BTS really be that surprising though?

Was it a plot all along? Some fans wondered.

How we wish this were true…
#WhereisBangtan I bet my whole non-existent wig that BTS are already in LA in their hotel rooms wearing gucci pajamas and scrolling through the tag and laughing at us for looking like parents with 7 missing children

Her personal favorite was the Buzzfeed Unsolved tweet because… well, #TeamShaniac. She wishes BTS the best of luck during this important trip and hopes ARMY can calm down enough to get a good night’s sleep since the next few days will be full of late nights, fancams, laughter, fangirling, and lots of proud crying.
