Kwak Yoongy on why he did the Dynamite dance— lyssy⁷ (@btsbaragi_jk) February 16, 2022
“I’m a fan of BTS. At the beginning of the Olmpcs, we had a very hard time. Such as the b1as. But then, after receiving RM-nims consolation, I felt that I needed to repay this(him) somehow/by any means”

Olympic short-track speedskater Kwak Yoon-gy finished second with his Korean team in the 5,000-meter men’s relay on Wednesday ― but perhaps second to none in his celebration on the medal stand.
The athlete busted out his BTS dance moves from the K-pop band’s megahit “Dynamite.” And he got a shoutout from band member RM for it, Koreaboo.com reported.

The athlete, who has hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram, also competed in the 2010 and 2018 Winter Games.
On his Olympics bio page, the 32-year-old skater said his ambition was to win gold in Beijing. But he got silver and followed it with a solid-gold dance routine.
That still qualifies as dynamite.
