BTS’s Jimin Opens Up About Finally Working With Idol, BIGBANG’s Taeyang

Jimin is the most succesful fanboy!

Anyone who knows BTS‘s Jimin knows he’s a longtime fanboy of BIGBANG‘s Taeyang.

Since the beginning, Jimin has always made it known that Taeyang was a huge inspiration for him.

His members even tease him for playing Taeyang’s “Wedding Dress” so much…

Suga even exposed what a true Taeyang-biased VIP Jimin is in his interview with Taeyang on Suchwita!

Now, in Jimin’s own exclusive interview with Vogue Korea, he revealed his true feelings about working with Taeyang on the idol’s single “VIBE.”


In the interview, Jimin was asked about his idol. So, naturally, he talked about Taeyang. Jimin shared how he had admired Taeyang since he was just a kid, so working so closely together was a dream come true.

I had a chance to be featured in ‘Vibe,’ the new single by Taeyang [a member of K-pop boy group BigBang], whom I’ve admired ever since I was a little kid.

There’s a popular saying, “Never meet your heroes,” because they might not be as great as you imagine. In Jimin’s case, that was far from the case. He revealed Taeyang is even cooler.

This collaboration brought us face-to-face for the first time, and I was delighted to learn that my idol was even cooler than I’d imagined. I want to follow in his footsteps.

As Jimin prepares to make his solo debut, Taeyang continues to serve as inspiration. However, he didn’t ask for any specific advice, but he is looking forward to playing his album FACE for his idol once it’s complete.

The collaboration also gave me a chance to reflect on the solo album I was working on at the time as well. No, I didn’t ask Taeyang for any advice about my album. I’d rather just play it to him once it’s finished.
