In the latest episode of Suchwita, BTS‘s Suga recently sat down with SHINee‘s Taemin where the two bonded over being some of the few idols born in 1993.
Despite being born the same year, Suga is one of the oldest BTS members, while Taemin is the youngest member of SHINee, thus giving them two completely different experiences.
Suga discussed how BTS’s maknae Jungkook grew up while living and learning from his fellow members. Just like a younger sibling, he would go on to replicate their behavior.
As I watch Jungkook, he would get influenced by the older members and absorb their habits like a sponge.
All of these past experiences with the members have created the Jungkook of today.
Taemin agreed that as the youngest himself, the maknae tends to be a combination of all the members’ habits, personalities, and more.
Since Jungkook was barely a teenager when he met the members and began living together, he quite literally became who he is today with the members by his side!
Jungkook moved to Seoul for the first time when he was 14 or 15.
According to Suga, his identity was not fully formed at this time due to his young age.
In the end, Jungkook turned out to be a great combination of all of the members’ amazing qualities!
