BTS‘s Jimin recently held a surprise live broadcast. Since it has been a few weeks since his previous one, he spent over an hour catching up with ARMY.
So, here are 10+ new facts we learned about Jimin from himself…
1. He got vaccinated.
Last week, he received a COVID-19 vaccination. He said it hurt a little, and he was sick, so he could not do many live broadcasts.
I was going to turn it on last week, but I got vaccinated on my day off so I was a bit sick. It hurt for me.
Since then, his sleep schedule has also been affected. Sometimes, he will fall asleep immediately after work, and other times he’ll be awake past midnight.
After I got vaccinated, I slept the entire day. …My pattern changed again. I barely … got it back on track but it went back so I’m trying to change it again.
2. His taste buds have changed.
He said that he liked to buy slices of cake during his trainee days for a snack. However, as he’s grown older, he doesn’t eat as much.
But as I got older, I think my taste buds have changed in terms of food. Well, it’s all food but I don’t eat as much snacks as I used to. I’ve changed. …Other than when I eat my meals, I don’t snack on other stuff that much.
So, now he doesn’t even crave any specific cake at all.
3. He listens to the fan-made song “Sarang” a lot now.
How was the song ‘Sarang?’ …After you talked about it a lot [when] we met online [for the Zoom fanmeeting], I listened to it right away and over and over again. It was so adorable.

He shared that his members helped him search for it online, and now he listens to it a lot at home when he’s doing miscellaneous activities, such as skincare and makeup. He also continually expressed his gratefulness for the fans who created the song for him.
He didn’t have a chance to use any treatment (conditioner) because he was running late.
Today’s TMI? I just shampooed my hair and didn’t use any treatment. I got up late so I only washed my hair with shampoo and ran out.
5. He hopes to perform “ON” in person.
He answered a fans’ question, asking what song he’d like to perform first offline. He thinks “ON” itself and its choreography are so cool.
If I had to choose the first song, I’d have to pick ‘ON’ because I really want to show it to you. Of course, we all have our own preferences, but, for me, the performance and the song of ‘ON’ are really cool. It’s our song but I think it’s really cool, but you haven’t seen it in person.
6. “Born Singer” always makes him cry.
He reminisced about performing songs in the past like “Born Singer” and wondered if he and the members would cry while singing it today.
Will everyone cry if we sing it? I cried too. When we sang ‘Born Singer,’ the lyrics and everything was… When we’re on stage and perform. …We would be facing each other and then we turned around and sang with you.
He said that it’s a great song, but it always made him, the members, and ARMY cry whenever they performed it in concerts.
When we were looking at each other, I can see that the members are all emotional. And then when we turn, I see so many ARMY fans in front of me, right? And you’re all emotional too. That made me really tear up.
7. ARMY motivates him.
Like the rest of us, he misses concerts and opportunities to see each other in person. The hope of one day being all together again continues to motivate him.
These days, it feels like I’m living to see that day come. It will be okay soon, right? We’d be able to see them around this time, right? …This is what I’ve been thinking about the whole time.
He said that fans’ “Permission to Dance” video submissions encouraged him and the members during these uncertain times. He appreciates all ARMY who continue to stay with them and listen to their music.
You’re like the light in our dark lives. That’s what keeps us going. I know I’m way too young to be talking like that, but, yes, I feel blue too sometimes.
8. His hair is damaged right now, so he won’t be coloring it anytime soon.
Initially, he asked viewers what kind of hair color they would like to see him with next. Yet, he revealed that he wouldn’t be doing it anytime soon because he’s trying to give his hair a break.
I was just asking your preferred color. I wasn’t going to change my hair color right away. Sorry. Because… don’t get me wrong. I just wanted to ask you. My hair is so damaged right now.
He said he struggles to even wash his hair due to the damage. Because of this, he cannot bleach his hair or dye it right now.
I have to grow it out and cut the damaged part first.
He hesitated to share the news at first but eventually revealed to ARMY that he would ultimately have to get braces to fix some crooked teeth. At this time, he actually has some partially fake teeth because of an accident.
I know you all like my crooked teeth, but I went to see my dentist. I had the consultation. …Why did I go? You know this tooth here? This tooth here about a half of it is fake.
He said that it wasn’t due to cosmetic reasons but because the tooth is protruding out. He has actually chipped it a few times by hitting it on his mic.
My teeth are protruding a bit. So it broke 3 times because I hit it with the microphone. It broke so many times because of the microphone since it’s protruding.
Recently, he chipped it again when performing, so he visited the dentist. They believe that the solution to his problem would be to get braces, but he is not planning to get them right now.
10. He’s never had cavities.
In addition to not having had braces before, Jimin shared that he has also not had any cavities. He takes good care of his teeth!
I never had cavities before and the only problem is that one tooth is protruding. Because of this, I went to see the dentist.
11. He’s been doing a lot of skincare lately.
Anticipating the day he can meet ARMY again, he takes great care of himself to look his best when they meet again. This includes lots of skincare, such as using sheet masks!
I will put facial mask pack more often too. I use facial mask pack nowadays five days a week. When I meet ARMY, I want my skin to look good…
12. He is not working out more to bulk up.
He’s exercising not just because he wants to look his best… He revealed that he is actually working out to correct his posture.
My back is all bent forward so I’ve been exercising to get my back straight again… I’ve been picking up some heavy weight and stretching out a lot.
He was hesitant to share what he’s been working on recently. He said that his schedule is pretty much the same as he works, then he goes home to rest each day. Still, he did say that he and the members are filming some projects.
And in terms of work, since we don’t meet you guys in person, we film stuff which will be released later. So I can’t really share them with you.
He couldn’t say when exactly it would be released, but we won’t see it for at least a couple more months.
Spoilers? The things we are working on now won’t be released soon. At least it will take about 2, 3, and 4 months before the release.
14. He prefers to spend time with others.
We all know Jimin loves his members and enjoys spending time with them. But, he revealed that, in the past, he really had a hard time being alone. He always preferred to be with someone else.
I really don’t like spending time alone at home. I don’t know why. I’m not like that anymore, but in the past being alone at home was unendurable for me. I didn’t like being alone without members or without friends.
These moments of loneliness ultimately inspired him to write his solo song “Promise.” So, he reflected on his personal growth.
I felt like… I didn’t know what I was doing, but I had no idea what I should do. When I felt like that… I think this song came out after spending those times repeatedly.
15. He’s a fan of Kim Jin Ho and Yoon Do Hyun.
While Korean ARMY might be familiar with these artists, Jimin took the opportunity to introduce them to more international ARMYs. He currently listens to them himself regularly.
When I’m alone these days, I listen to Kim Jin Ho’s songs a lot. And also Yoon Do Hyun’s songs too. I feel so happy listening to those songs. ARMYs should also…
As he listens to both Kim Jin Ho and Yoon Do Hyun every day, he feels “so happy.” Jimin hopes that ARMY will listen to many more great singers too.
