At that time, I didn’t live in the dorms as a BTS member. I had come up from Busan and I didn’t have a place to stay so I came to live in the dorms.


Recognizing that he could be eliminated from the group at any time made it really uncomfortable and difficult for him during those days.

At that time, being called up from the agency meant bad news for the trainees. Jimin shared that he was told that it was a close call for him every month to be dismissed from the project.


Not knowing what I should do was the hardest thing for me. Whenever V or Jungkook had vocal lessons, I asked if I could watch. I would tune in to the lesson and later practice what I learned late at night.

Jungkook chimed, “According to my standards, Jimin Hyung is the most strict and hard-working on himself.”

The members also shared that Jimin would almost never sleep, always waking up the earliest and going to bed the latest among the members.


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.


Jimin has the mindset of a champion, because has the drive to succeed no matter how hard it will be.



I would call my father once every month and I would always tell him that I might not make it so just don’t be disappointed in me. Even if I fail here, I will make it somehow.


I endured all these hardships and continued to practice hard in order to be a part of the team all because of the members. We are all equally lacking and we are all the same people, but we can do it if we are together.


Fans were moved by his story and really appreciated Jimin’s revelation about the hardships he had to go through to get to where he is now.

You deserve the success you have now Jimin!
