BTS’s J-Hope has officially been confirmed as a headline performer for the Chicago music festival 2022 Lollapalooza!
Both TXT and J-Hope will perform at the anticipated event, but the BTS rapper will make history as the first Korean artist to headline the main stage at Lollapalooza.

Yet, some may have known for a while that J-Hope would perform a solo stage this year. It turns out that Jimin may have spoiled it months ago.
And during the live broadcast, Jimin casually mentioned J-Hope potentially performing a solo concert. They quickly moved past it, though.
At the time, ARMYs didn’t think much of it, but in light of the news of J-Hope’s headline 2022 Lollapalooza, that moment is resurfacing online. ARMYs now realize what Jimin meant by his comment!

This wouldn’t be the first time a BTS member “spoiled” something without ARMYs realizing it until way later. Read more below:
