American singer-songwriter Charlie Puth has confirmed that the music video for his and BTS Jungkook‘s collaboration “Left and Right” depicts a BL (Boy Love) relationship.
The music video clearly had a storyline as Charlie Puth was depicted struggling to get someone “out of his head,” even resorting to going to a “Love Doctor.” The only other person in the video, though, was Jungkook. So, naturally, viewers couldn’t help but wonder if the love song and its MV were actually meant to represent a relationship between two men.
is it just me or did the mv literally make it seem like they are dating LIKE THE COUPLES THERAPY??????

if i had a dollar for every time jungkook had a gay breakup and then got run over in a mv i’d have two dollars which isn’t a lot but it’s weird that it’s happened twice pic.twitter.com/HxvFQqEDjP

So you are telling me that Charlie Puth saw Jungkook and proceeded to make a sexual identity crisis anthem with a gay ass video of him being gay and shit on the gayest month in the year?

Now, speculations regarding Charlie Puth and Jungkook’s characters’ relationship in the music video have been confirmed by Puth himself.
Charlie Puth reposted a comment from the MV’s YouTube comment section to Instagram Stories. He highlighted the portion that praised the presumably gay characters and their relationship with each other. Henceforth, by endorsing the comment, he has confirmed the theory.
Since no one else is pictured besides the two, the assumption that the two guys are occupying each other’s mind, which I think is great! I’m all for normalizing this.
