It doesn’t take long to get to know BTS J-Hope‘s heart-fluttering personality: He’s humble, selfless, and more hardworking than anyone! Check out some of the moments below he revealed his true nature that made ARMY fall even more in love with him.
1. J-Hope sacrificed his medal to RM without a second thought.
During the Idol Star Athletic Championships, J-Hope, Jimin, Jungkook, and V received medals for winning the 4x100m relay. The moment J-Hope saw RM who didn’t receive a medal, he immediately gave him his own so he wouldn’t feel left out.
2. He put Jungkook before himself when receiving an award.
Putting himself further off the screen during the Seoul Music Awards, J-Hope would rather help his members have more screen time and be closer to the award and microphone than himself. He doesn’t have to think twice when it comes to being selfless!
3. A BTS World app developer revealed how J-Hope is behind the scenes.
A BTS World app developer who had personal interactions with the members revealed some insider information about J-Hope’s true personality and it left fans swooning over his manliness!
J-Hope is polite from head to toe. He’s super friendly too, so he calls the staff his “hyung-nims” and gets along with them well. He’s a smart guy who is super quick and keen to catch things. The longer you know J-Hope, the more you can feel his manly side.

5. He always shares how much his mom means to him.

As my mother trusts and helps me, I must succeed. My mother’s happiness is my happiness and her laughter is my laughter.

Working with J-Hope on the set of his music video, “Daydream”, a staff member gave first-hand insight into how J-Hope really is in person. He’s polite and works hard until the very end.
Even with BTS at the height of their fame, he really had a great personality. He must’ve been tired, but I was impressed with his overflowing energy until the very end, greeting each and every person. He made me think that successful people are successful for a reason and gave me the inspiration to work harder.
7. J-Hope showed his maturity when he gave his past self advice.
When asked if he would tell himself in the past about his future if he could, he said he wouldn’t in fear of himself becoming lazy. Instead, he would tell himself to just continue what he’s doing.
저는 말을 해주고 싶지 않아요 말을 해주면 과거의 제이홉이 달라질 것 같아요.
그냥 "너 하고 싶은 대로 해" 하고 싶어요.
뭐 미래를 이야기해주기도 싫고 그러면 나태해질까봐 "그대로 해, 네 마음대로 해" pic.twitter.com/gQPyB4SdRD
