On Twitter, American writer James Dashner shared his thoughts on the K-Pop group's brand new masterpiece. "So cool to see #MazeRunner featured in the new #BTS music video #ON," he wrote.
"Jungkook = amazing as Thomas!" he added, praising JK who stood in for the main character in Maze Runner played by Dylan O'Brien.

James even came up with the idea of a remake starring the K-Pop idols. "In what #MazeRunner roles would you cast each member of BTS? Who would be #Newt?"

Obviously, V would be Newt (played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and he's got the neck tattoo to prove it.
