【COOL 当代歌坛 ☆ COOL MUSIC MAGAZINE 2015.2.25 】 THE IMPRESSIONS OF BTS TRANS


RAP MONSTER:

He has a big sign of ‘I’m a Hip-Hopper!’ glistening across his forehead, and from the inside he’s a charming senpai. It’s because he is Rap Monster, that’s why his image has turned out like this. He is so photogenic with his tameless charm. 

He doesn’t like talking and he doesn’t like scolding people either. He simply does his job and makes everything clear in advance. In fact, this kind of person is very reliable when comes to be in charge of things. Becoming the leader of the group is definitely not because of the age. Actually he’s not even that old, but he is inconsistent in his thoughts and he’s sharp-witted, mentally responsive & perceptive at the same time. 

Also, I need to mention that even though he doesn’t try to be funny, he always ends up as the funny guy in the group. Just before the Beijing Press Conference, they were watching their old performances’ videos. And whenever the leader’s part came up, the members would all cheer and laugh. Well, it seems like they can only make fun of the leader at these kind of times.


J-HOPE:

He is the typical free-spirited and unconstrained Aquarius guy (Lit.: he has an unrestrained and vigorous style that brims with talent). He’s the type that gets high/ excited for no reason. So when there’s a punchline, he would be laughing really loudly, even when there’s nothing funny to laugh about, he would laugh anyways. The question is how can we save his restless energy. 

As the best dancer, his enthusiasm in dancing is never-ending, that’s why we can see it in every day life. We often see J-Hope moving his pelvis in the position of a horse stance, wobbling his upper body along with his contagious laughter. 

And he is always very enthusiastic when comes to learning Chinese, he tries his best to compliment the Chinese staffs using the Chinese that he has learnt. He is studying actively. He sure is a person who knuckles down to work and knows how to work around/ be flexible with things. And, instead of saying that he doesn’t like the low, boring atmosphere, why don’t we put it in different words; Hoseok ah, actually you’re just afraid of loneliness, right?


★V:

He is handsome and slim. When you look at his face, you wouldn’t have imagined that he would be so tall. It’s just that he is completely two different creatures when he’s moving around and sitting still. When he frees his soul, he’s a charming boy that is loved by everyone and especially when he smiles at the camera, he’s such an invincible cutie pie. 

He’s the type that you wouldn’t know what he’s going to do in the next second. So whether it was the photo-shoot or the interview, we had to keep an extra eye on him. It’s proved that even though he’s loud, once he turns into ‘V’, he becomes all professional and serious. 

And he is so photogenic, he was so good at pulling off those subtle facial expressions. Xi hyung really liked him and even allowed V to play on his electronic drum. And V was so happy when he got complimented… you should have seen his reaction, he’s a kid after all.


SUGA:

There’s a phrase called ‘不怒自威 - a person that projects a natural dignity and power’ which can perfectly describe him, but Suga replied ‘are you saying that I look fierce/ aggressive?’ See, no wonder he’s the sharp tongue of BTS. 

Suga is thorough but also witty, and he is good at taking care of himself and he’s good at self-discipline. The kids really admire him for that. That’s why he’s the member that everyone wants to rely on. Although there’s the leader, and the powerful maknae, but Suga can also be appointed to be in charge of things. 

When everyone gets overly excited, Suga would whisper “it’s enough”, and then they would all calm down and behave themselves. Whether it’s his artist’s self-discipline or as group’s, Suga has the role of ‘leading and setting an example for everyone’. In other words, he’s the hyung ‘with a senior’s manners’.


JUNGKOOK:

Overall, he is talented in everything. Although he’s the maknae, he doesn’t have the tendencies of a child. He’s sensible and quiet both on & off the screen, his new earrings made him even more captivating. 

He doesn’t give off the feeling of ‘dependency on the hyungs’ like the other maknaes from the other groups. He is able to outstandingly accomplish the task he was given to in the shortest time, and he also can lead the group’s pace. From looking at the noisy pair V and J-Hope, Jungkook found the fixed position that suited him the best as a maknae. 

You can’t even see any aegyo from him, the only time that he showed his aegyo was when he heard his voice in the background music during the photo shoot. Suddenly he got embarrassed and did aegyo to the camera, “noona, can you not play this song pleaseee~~~” And at that time I realized, it doesn’t matter how mature he looks, he is still a young 1997 liner.


JIMIN:

His eye smile is very charming. Although he’s part of the dongsaeng line, he has a steady character like a hyung. He is sensible but not taciturn, he is quiet but not inarticulate. When he’s supposed to be lively, he can be the most lively member. 

He is very strict with managing his own body. It doesn’t matter how good the snack tastes, he will only take one bite and that’s it. He is always smiling, enjoying every happy moment, and he can adjust himself really quickly to the relaxed state but he can always find the turning point to brighten up the atmosphere. He’s good at smoothing things over, the hyungs all believes in him. When he’s working, he would help the manager to keep an eye on the members’ pace, he would remind them of the procedures and he would even help out as an assistant. 

He always walks in the front of the line and be the last one to leave, so he is always the first and the last one to greet and express his gratitude. He is ingratiating in speech (good at sweet-talking), and good at taking cues from others. He is a very clever person.


JIN:

This whole group is good-looking, but not all of them are aware of the fact that they are handsome guys. If one has to become the existence to protect the idol’s pride, that has got to be Jin. 

He is a very handsome guy, from head to toe. He has broad shoulders, small waist and long legs, he has a perfect body proportion. He is the out-and-out visual. He takes care of his image, but I’m not saying that he has an idol burden - because he happily takes big bites when comes to eating meat. 

It’s just that he has a standard when comes to being an ‘artist’, for example: the degree of his smile when he is smiling at the camera, the rate of his response when he’s holding the mic, the level of his politeness when he’s in front of us. He also gives off a sense of ‘an older brother’. When it gets out of control, he would grab the kid’s collar to have a small talk and give him a lesson.
