From meeting up with celebrity pals to taking in local sights, check out everything the K-pop stars have shared from their time in between tour dates.

J-Hope Hit Up the Broad: The rapper shared photos of himself posing with different pieces from what looks like pop artist Takashi Murakami's "GYATEI²" exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles on May 6.

Jungkook Had an Intense Workout: The usually social media–shy member uploaded a 32-second video clip of himself in the midst of an arm workout. Fans noticed that the singer was wearing the same clothes and wristband on from his photos at the Ariana Grande concert, perhaps indicating a late-night workout. In 24 hours time, the clip amassed more than six million views.

The Band Ran Into John Legend: The Grammy winner posted a photo with the full band on May 7, captioned, "Look who I ran into on the Universal lot today!" Rumors began buzzing among the fandom that BTS filmed a performance for The Voice, where Legend is a current judge, or other TV appearances.
Suga Went to a Dodgers Game: The rapper had a ball at the L.A. Dodgers 9-0 win over the Atlanta Braves. The game was particularly significant for South Korean pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched the entire game, doing so for the first time since his rookie season in 2013. Suga congratulated the MLB star on his shutout in a backstage meeting later, where the two talked and shook hands.
This leaves the whereabouts of the last two BTS members Jimin and V still unknown, but if their bandmates' posts are any indication, they're likely having loads of fun. BTS' Love Yourself: Speak Yourself Tour continues in Chicago on May 11.
