Do you consider yourself a BTS aficionado? If so, you might ace this guessing game about Jimin.
In the early 1990s, author Gary Chapman published The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate. This best-selling book outlines the five ways people like to express and receive love from their romantic partners.
The five love languages are acts of service, gift-giving, physical touch, quality time, and words of affirmation. Someone might like to give their loved one BTS merch (gift-giving), but they themselves might prefer to receive love via quality time (watching “PTD Live Viewing” together, learning choreography together, etc.)
Fans shared their best guesses about BTS’s love languages on Reddit, Twitter, Quora, and more. Here are ARMY’s most popular answers for Jimin.
How does Jimin like to show love? Answer #1: physical touch. Jimin is one of BTS’s most physically affectionate members. He often shows love by hugging…
…and patting his members’ backs.
Jimin is the type of friend who offers friends a shoulder to cry on for as long as they need it.
Answer #2: acts of service. Jimin takes it upon himself to care for his members. When V was feeling sick at dinner, for instance, Jimin brought V whatever he needed. Jimin was so helpful, in fact, that Jungkook joked about him working at the restaurant!
How does Jimin like to receive love? ARMY’s top answer was quality time. Over the years, Jimin has made it clear that he would much rather be with his members than alone.
[The members] said, after drinking, I came to the hotel and asked for more soju. Then, I said, ‘I’m really lonely.’ I kept saying, ‘I don’t think using separate rooms was a good idea.’

Another good guess might be words of affirmation. His members’ praise and encouragement have helped Jimin to become the confident star he is today.
