Krishna has been a fan of Korean pop music for almost 10 years. She loves exploring good music with deep and meaningful lyrics.
Bangtan Boys / BTS
BTS also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member Korean boy group that gained worldwide popularity. They are formed in 2013 under BigHit Entertainment consisting of members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin and Jungkook.
They gained worldwide fame through their meaningful messages that are included in their songs. [Here is an article about the Top 10 BTS Songs With The Most Inspirational Lyrics and Top 7 BTS Songs That Can Heal or Cure Depression, Loneliness, and Insecurities]. The septet is heavily included in the writing and production of their albums. Throughout the years, the people learned to love their music (though some are still underrated but deserve more love), hard choreographies, and most notably - their loveable personalities.
If you ask the ARMY, which stands for Adorable Representative M.C for Youth (the fans of BTS) why they love BTS - they can tell a whole lot other reasons why they love BTS. Not only are the boys amazingly talented, but they are people with good manners, humility, sense of humor and a great passion for what they do.
1. His Profile
J-Hope is a South Korean rapper, songwriter, dancer, and record producer. In 2013, J-Hope made his debut as a member of BTS.
J-Hope released his first solo mixtape, Hope World, worldwide on March 1, 2018. The album was met with a positive reception. His debut at number 63 (and subsequent peak at number 38) made him the highest charting solo Korean artist on the Billboard 200 at the time of the mixtape's release.
2. Dance Leader
J-Hope is called the choreography leader of BTS. He is often seen helping his members practice their dance routines with his legendary PA-PA-PAM-PAM-PAM adlibs while teaching them. It is most often seen in their Bangtan Bomb and behind-the-scene videos how often he takes care of the other members with their performance.
RM once said that J-Hope would be the most suitable leader next to him. ARMY thinks so too because J-Hope often leads the group with his sunshine personality and amazing dancing skills. One cannot deny the leadership this man has. Here are a few videos of J-Hope being the dance leader that he is as well as him being the Mr. Choreography Teacher Jung Hoseok:
3. His Soft Singing Voice
J-Hope is one of the three rappers of BTS but he also has a nice voice! In Spring Day, he sang most of the hidden vocals. Often, his rap consists of a melodious singing part. In his duo with Suga called SOPE, they sing the Otsukare song which showcases J-Hope's singing ability together with his amazing vibrato voice.
In their BTS song Make It Right and I Like It, J-Hope perfectly showed his beautiful vocals. There are many other videos and songs wherein we seldom witness the beauty of J-Hope's vocals but its all worth it! I just hope that someday we will get longer parts of singing J-Hope in the future.
4. He Learned How to Rap
At first, J-Hope doesn't know how to rap, but in order for him to get the rapping position in BTS, he learned it! J-Hope's motto in life is: “If you don’t work hard, there won’t be good results.”
With his current level in his rapping ability, Hoseok surely does work hard to get to where he is now, and it is impressive. As an underground dancer without rapping experience, Hoseok is amazing that he is able to rap beautifully and write most of his rap lyrics.
J-Hope has his own flow and style of rapping which is unique and soothing to the ears. Here are some of the compilation of his rap parts in BTS songs:
5. His Writing and Production Skills
Now, this is one of the underrated skill of J-Hope. Most of us know that the rap line is heavily involved in the production and writing of their songs. But it is very seldom that Hoseok is being praised for his writing and producing abilities.
BTS has many songs with great and deep lyrics that tackle the issue of societal expectations, self-love, mental health, depression, and many more. Now, let's appreciate the writer and producer J-Hope more.
We can't list out all of his works in the field of writing and production, and we are still counting. As an individual without experience in production, Hoseok surely develops a lot! Here are some of his works:
6. He Cares So Much for His Members
BTS members are so in love with Hoseok! Hoseok is like the glue that binds together the hyung and maknae line. In fact, Hoseok is seen close to all the members. He cares so much for his members, that the members couldn't resist loving him.
7. His Love for ARMY
J-Hope always expresses his love for ARMY. In twitter, interviews, Bangtan bombs, fan meetings, concerts, and many more. He always remembers the fans that give love to him and it's no wonder why he continues to receive more love! Here are a few moments wherein J-Hope showed his unending love for ARMYs:
“To be honest, each day is tiring and difficult but I believe that the sole reason I can make it through is because of our ARMYs.”
ARMY, you are my umbrella
8. He is a Sunshine
Jung Hoseok is called J-Hope because he always gives people a reason to smile and be happy. He is a source of hope and happiness. He smiles always and is a source of energy during their interviews and behind the scenes. Here are some moments wherein J-Hope showed us inspiration and motivation through his sunshine ability:
I’ll help you, because I was like you, because I had passion. I’ll make your dreams bright, make your nightmare go away, peace will be right there.
— J-Hope in “Piece of Peace
9. His Aegyo
J-Hope is too cute for this world. This man has no shame in showing his cute side. He is a pro at making other BTS members cringe with his cuteness. Hobi or Jung Hoseok is such an angel that must be protected.
10. He Is Scared Easily
Last but not least, J-Hope is easily scared with almost everything else. Although he is scared, he always tries his best and conquers his fear of almost anything. It is true that J-Hope is always scared but it is such an inspiration watching him whenever he doesn't give up. He is such a brave man that must be protected at all times.
