Other members about J-Hope:
Jimin’s first impression about J-Hope:The first person i met was J-Hope. He was very friendly to me, ‘Excuse me, Jimin..’. So i remembered J-Hope the most.
Jimin about J-Hope’s mean side: “J-Hope is bright guy, laugh a lot and has become hopeful like his name. J-Hope has good energy that effects everyone in a good way and i think J-hope is awesome. And people think he’s always nice and innocent. But, inside his smiley face, there’s an evil living there. J-Hope winds me up all the time but never stop smiling even when he does that. But you can never punch someone who looks so happy like that. One day, i was sleeping and all of sudden he poked me and shook me saying,
‘Jiiiimiiiiiiiin, wake up and play with me!!!!’
So, i woke up. But right after i opened my eyes, he just grinned at me and went back to sleep like nothing happened. So i thought,
‘Uuuugh! i can never say anything to him cause he’s older than me!’.
And once he told me he would give me a massage and started squeezing the back of my neck, and that got tigher and tigher! He was smiling at then too! At the end i wat getting upset but he didn’t stop it. He was doing it even harder and said,
‘This will relax your muscles.’
When i was sitting down at the rehearsal room during the break, he head locked me. He hit me once and left the room so i looked at him with a serious face for a second. J-Hope, the timid, came to the room only after three seconds and gave me some mischievous hugs and said,
‘Jimin! Are you upset at me? Are you?? You are not! Aren’t you??’
Chuckling hard, he left room after 10 seconds. What should i do with him?”
Rap Monster:There’s something he always says whenever we make a comeback or wrap up our promotion. He says that we got to make a comeback or successfull complete the promotion, thanks to the love shown by our fans.”
Suga: “I’m not good at expressing how i feel with words.But Jimin and J-Hope are good at expressing themselves.I envy them for that.
– In the dorm he shares a room with Jimin. (BTS’ JHOPE & JIMIN – MORE MAGAZINE MAY ISSUE 2018)
– J-Hope features in Drake’s “In My Feelings” MV.
– On March 2, 2018, J-Hope released his 1st mixtape “Hope World”, with the title track “Daydream”.

    This isn’t really related to jhope but that part about him joining ‘BigBang’s seungri’s’ dance academy should be rephrased,considering the fact seungri isn’t a part of BigBang anymore, but a former member, Seungri is now a current member in jail along with Jung Joonhyung.
