  • KProfiles

    @disqus_fJYh5QCQUS:disqus
    No, we don’t mind, but it would be better if you could also provide a source (like an interview when hey said what’s their religion) because usually fans are very sensitive to this topic and often ask for the source. Thanks once again!

  • christolhy

    Jaebum also has a soundcloud ( https://soundcloud.com/def_xxx ) that he has posted a few songs to. He produced them under his alias “Defsoul” and collaborated with JOMALONE on some of the tracks.

  • KProfiles

    He becomes relax when he takes a walk alone or go somewhere alone
    He looks cold or tough to person who doesn’t know him

  • Ma Liz

    i don’t think so.. Jinyoung is taller by 1 cm than JB.. 🙂

  • No? JB is 179 cm. Jinyoung is 178 cm. Therefore, Jinyoung is shorter than JB by 1 cm, but in feet both are 5’10. JB is just ahead by 1/2 inches in feet.

  • Mai Thảo Phương

    you can see in Real Got7 SS3 (I’m not sure), JB is 179 cm and no way can Jinyoung be 180 cm, so there’s no mistake here

  • Ma Liz

    oh well, i got it wrong.. i always thought that Jinyoung have outgrown JB.. 🙂

  • Vkook Min

    I am also an Indian fan and I also love him so much 😘😘😘

    JB became a JYP trainee in 2009, so He was a trainee for 4 years

    JB wrote Bad Behavior (not composed), wrote & co-composed Everyday (rap making by Bambam), co-wrote and co-composed Something Good, Fish, Home Run, Skyway, Prove It, Dreamin, Go Higher, and Q.

    And for newest album 7for7, he co-wrote & co-composed their title track, You Are and their b-sides Teenager.

  • Liz

    Why do some people sat “Lim Jaebum” and others say “Im Jaebum” I am so confused because for a long time I believe it was “Im” yes?

  • Cyrel Samosa

    i think they said this before( i forgot what show tho) that in english, jaebum’s surname is pronounced as LIM and in korean it is IM

  • Cyrel Samosa

    he uses his right hand when eating with chopsticks tho

  • Cyrel Samosa

    his father’s name is not im taekgeun. he is the father of a veteran singer with the same name as JB. (the reason why he is not using his real name)

  • Cyrel Samosa

    based on their official profile( the jjproject website), jinyoung is 178 and jb is 179.

  • Yuchan Jung

    no i think he changed it to “Lim” because he has exact same name as an old popular singer in kore Im jaebum

  • Ulinnuha Hafidzati

    In korean, his name writing in “im” but the pronounced as “lim”. That was same who had name “lee”, writen “e” in korean. I’m sorry for my poor english

  • kira

    he currently lives with his parents ^^

  • kira

    his name is written as “Lim Jaebeom” but the “L” doesn’t have sound, so it pronounced as “Im” 🙂

  • qare

    with his parents? but his parents are divorced…
    his mom got re-married, I don’t know about his dad

  • Delenya

    He lives with his mum & step father (Hello Counsellor)

  • Benny Devilnot

    I got yugyeom 😘

  • Lucy

    Mention once in VLIVE that BTS Suga is his one of his idol friends, and they were close during MAMA Japan so I guess it’s true 🙂

  • Iracchi

    He writes using the left-hand, but switches hands for other tasks. (Most lefties are like that, anyway.)

  • kimberly lippington love bot

    JB likes strawberries/strawberry milk
