I remember you saying something about how jimin acts like a busan guy and was wondering if there are stereotypes on the way people act given where they grew up......if that make sense

Before I go to Jimin, let me just put this out here yeah ^^, so there are different regions that make up South Korea:

  1. Gyeonggi Region (Seoul Special City, Incheon Metropolitan City, Gyeonggi-do | Seokjin and Namjoon
  2. Gangwon Region
  3. Gyeongsang Region (Busan Metropolitan City, Ulsan Metropolitan City, Daegu Metropolitan City, Gyeongsangbuk-do, Gyeongsangnam-do | Yoongi, Taehyung, Jimin, Jungkook)
  4. Jeolla Region (Gwangju Metropolitan City, Jeollabuk-do, Jeollanam-do, Jeju Island | Hoseok)
  5. Chungcheong Region (Daejeon Metropolitan City, Sejong Special Self-Governing City, Chungcheongbuk-do, Chungcheongnam-do)

People from the Gyeongsang Region (where Yoongi, Taehyung, Jimin, and Jungkook are from) are known to be loud and aggressive, being frank, honest, and humorous, which is what they all are ;DD but the ppl from Busan are more so stereotyped as ‘cold and unresponsive’, their personality is a bit impatient and have the tendency to repeat what they say, like when ppl ask what they wanna eat, they’ll answer, “meat, meat!”. Jimin does this A LOT compared to Jungkook, and both of them are from Busan. Yoongi and Taehyung on the other hand, are both from Daegu, and ppl from Daegu are known to be more hot-tempered i.e they lack “social graces” than the average Korean person, and are not the “most friendly” people in Korea. Not saying Yoongi is but OBVIOUSLY TAEHYUNG IS NOT :)

So yeah, for me, Jungkook fits the stereotyped Busan guy more than Jimin, much like how Yoongi fits more of a Daegu guy that Taehyung is. I guess that’s why the members laughed when Jimin tried to act all manly brushing his hair like that in BTS FESTA, cos he’s farrrr from that ;P

I think its also interesting to know how ppl from Seoul tend to think ppl from Busan eat seafood every meal lmao cos Busan is a large port city in South Korea known for its beaches, and Namjoon teases Jimin about this but I can’t remember which episode. Also, Gyeongsang people are known to be rivals of Jeolla people (where Hoseok is from) due to political reasons. But of course, this 

doesn’t not apply

to bangtan

at least not when its hoseok <3 <33
