Over the years, many stories and facts have been shared about BTS‘s Jimin, with some of them being shared by the members themselves. Here are 4 facts about Jimin revealed by his groupmates that all ARMYs (BTS’s fandom) need to know.
1. Jimin has an insane work ethic
While all the BTS members have incredible work ethics, the members have always praised Jimin for how hard he works. Ever since Jimin was a trainee, he’s worked tirelessly. In an episode of tvN’s You Quiz On The Block, Jimin shared that when he was a trainee, he slept around 2 hours a day since he practiced so much. Jungkook also praised Jimin, saying, “According to my standards, Jimin hyung is the most strict and hard-working on himself.”
I would practice until about 4 AM and wake up around 6:30 to go to school. It wasn’t hard for me back then.
Even after debuting, Jimin still has this insane work ethic, and Jin has even said that Jimin’s work ethic influences him!
2. He’s always taking care of the members
Jimin has been praised numerous times for his kind personality, and when the members got asked who they “need when relieving their stress,” Jimin received a lot of votes.
Jimin’s angelic personality is seen when he’s taking care of the members. There have been many instances where Jimin has consoled the members.
Jimin is also always giving heartwarming comments to his members when they’re feeling down!
3. V believes that Jimin is the scariest member when angry
While Jimin is an angel, V has shared that Jimin is quite a scary person when angry. At a fansign, V was asked to rank the members based on how scary they are when they’re angry, and he ranked Jimin as the scariest member when angry!
It seems that V isn’t the only that finds Jimin scary when he’s angry, as J-Hope was once too “scared” to admit something to Jimin. One time, Jimin accidentally put his phone down on some chewed gum that J-Hope forgot to throw away. Jimin was so mad that J-Hope was unable to confess to his “crime” until much later!
Well…I confess to you now… in that moment I couldn’t tell you that it was me because you were swearing so much about how mad you were. I couldn’t bring myself to confess with my own mouth that I was the one that put the gum there.
4. Jimin almost didn’t debut in BTS
This one was revealed by Jimin himself. In an episode of JTBC’s Please Take Care of My Refrigerator, Jimin revealed that he almost failed to debut in BTS due to his dancing skills!
I almost failed to join the team because I wasn’t a good dancer.
The hosts of the show were surprised when Jimin shared this, as Jimin is known for his incredible dancing skills. Jimin explained that the type of dance he learned was a lot different from the type of dance idol groups usually do.
I majored in contemporary dance. Since the style of dancing was totally different than the choreography of an idol group, it became a difficult challenge for me.
Jimin worked hard to get over this and was able to successfully debut in BTS!
