SUGA: Profile 23 years old, born March 9th, 1993. 174 cm, Blood type O. Along with his activities with BTS, he also is known as a music “genius” with his solo activities under the name of Agust D. He said, “When I work, I just work and when I rest, I rest. That’s my personality.” In the studio, he’s usually buried in his bed alongside Jimin, as they wait for their makeup to be done. Brilliant self-analysis.
JIN: Profile 24 years old, born December 4th, 1992. 179cm, Blood Type O. Vocalist. He’s the oldest member of the group, known to be a handsome eater. Rap Monster says that “I’m really jealous of how he doesn’t have any stress.” His personality makes him say things like, “Once I sleep I forget. The tough things, even things I learned (lol). Ah, is that my tea? (lol)” His innocent personality makes everyone around him feel happy.
JIMIN: Profile 21 years old, born October 13th, 1995. 173cm, Blood Type A. Vocalist. He shows expression through the contemporary dance he learned at a Performance High School. Because he sometimes looks like he has soft face, people call him “ChimChim.” During an interview, we told him that his jawline looked sharp, his eyes lit up and said “I’m on a diet,” then turned to Jungkook to say “They said I lost weight!,” with a smile on his face.
RAP MONSTER: Profile 22 years old, born September 12th, 1994. 181 cm, Blood Type A. He has many solo activities, including collaborations with other artists. Relied on by others, he’s a super smart yet clumsy leader. When he goes into the studio or when simply greeting staff he would greet them, “Good Morning… aah!,” as he trips on the stairs. He’s a good person.
V: Profile 21 years old, born December 30th, 1995. 178cm, Blood Type AB. Vocalist. He is currently starring in the ongoing Korean Drama, “Hwarang” (broadcasted in Japan from March, on CSDATV). He’s a handsome and interesting kid. During an early schedule, while everyone was sleepy, he came in humming a song. Although it was early, he showed enthusiasm, even asking, “Where will the makeup be done?” in Japanese, but as the schedule was ending he seemed to have a delayed feeling of sleepiness that he was fighting against (lol).
JUNGKOOK: Profile 19 years old, born September 1st, 1997. 178cm, Blood Type A. Vocalist. He has brilliant skills in dance, singing, and sports, and is known as the “Golden Maknae.” He was teased by J-Hope who said, “Your legs are shaking” as Jungkook tried to keep a challenging pose for the shoot. But then, he just smiled and told the staff, “I’m fine!”. His manly Busan personality made our hearts race.
J-HOPE: Profile 22 years old, born February 18th, 1994. 177cm, Blood Type A. Rapper. Since he practiced street dance from his school ages, he pulls the group along as the lead dancer. His words “Let’s go,” was also the ones that brought the group in together to start this shoot. During his free time, he was practicing his Japanese pronunciation of “HOPE” with the staff, which was very impressive.
