the little boy at the end: “Get closer! Now it’s time to show why we were training. Look at the opportunity you have. Look at where you are. Get there and run over them. You have to give your life! Give your life, brother! This is Brasil! No fear! This jersey has history!”
【Japan Official Fanclub Magazine Vol.5】BTS My Biography – Jimin’s part
The middle school student who loves dancing became a member of BTS
My earliest memory is when I was 4 – 5 years old (nominal age) and we were moving to a new property nearby where we lived at the time. I held the rice cooker’s inner pot and helped my family to move. When I was a child, I loved to go outside to play with my hyungs and friends in the neighborhood every day. We often played football and hide & seek. Once I ran too far away and even ran to the nearby town (laughs).
In primary school, I loved to play with my friends. During the breaks, we often played football. Although I really liked drawing, I hated coloring. My future dreams changed constantly every day, I wanted to become a chef when I watched a cooking anime. When I watched ‘Galaxy Express 999’, I wanted to become the Galaxy Express’ driver, and I wanted to become a pirate when I watched ‘One Piece’.
I have a very good relationship with my young brothers, who’s 2 years younger. Sometimes, we play games together at home, or watch movies. I remember that we watched the anime ‘Dragon Balls’ and the movie ‘The Host’. We’re just like friends.
I got along with everyone in middle school. Although there’re 6 classes in my school, I pretty much knew everyone. I joined the football and table tennis clubs at school, I was happy every day back then.
I became interested in dancing during the 2nd grade of middle school. I used to go to practice punctually after school, and I started to attend a dance academy in 2010. I was also happy in the dance academy. Whenever I had time, I would go practice dance. I’ve also participated in big performances, but I was really nervous. Actually, even now sometimes I still get nervous when I stand on the stage.
A year before graduating from middle school, I started to think about attending an arts high school. I couldn’t even concentrate on studying when I was in the self-study room, I was worrying about “which high school should I attend? what do I want to do in the future…” While I was contemplating, I thought about having a job where I could stand on the stage. So, Busan Arts High school became my target. In dance majors, I wanted to learn dances that’s modern so I chose contemporary dance as my major. During high school, I spared no effort in dancing. At the time, my friends and I only knew dancing, we got together and practiced, messed around and then continued to practice. During high school, I also had to deal with the dance academy’s workload, but I worried about the tuition fees so I said: “I won’t attend the dance academy anymore.” However, the teacher said: “Jimin, you can attend even if you don’t pay.” The teacher took so much care of me, I wanted to repay the teacher so I practiced even harder. I learnt a lot under the guidance of the teacher. I’ve never thought about giving up dance, not even once.
During spring 2012, my middle school dance teacher contacted me so I auditioned and got accepted, then I decided to go to Seoul in May. The first member I met was Hobi hyung. Hyung welcomed me and said, “let’s work hard together!” Other members also came to talk to me, it just reminded me of the time when I arrived, I went to eat with everyone in the canteen. The happiest moment during the trainee life was when we eat and play together. I still have the amusement park ticket that we went together, I still carry that around in my wallet. It’s because it was the first time and first place that all of our members went together to play. So, it’s engraved on my memory. I’ve been carrying that ticket for about 5 years.
In Seoul, I got transferred to the same school as Taehyung. I was in Class 4 but Taehyung was in Class 2, the whole school knew Taehyung. Because Taehyung has a lot of friends so when he came to my class, he said to the students, “be nice to Jimin!” I’m really shy with strangers, but I gradually got close to my classmates thanks to Taehyung.
The most difficult part of the trainee life was the uncertainty of my future. I got anxious when I hear “you might get eliminated this time”, so I wanted to do my best with practicing. If I practiced until 3, 4am, I would sleep a bit and go practice singing at 6am for an hour and then go to school. This routine continued for about a year. At the time, I’ve never thought I could become a member of BTS, but I was chosen as a substitute member. The hyungs said: “we want to debut with Jimin”, and that became my strength. The feeling of wanting to debut with these hyungs grew stronger.
I was so excited when we debuted. The memories of when we had the showcase, we received a cake from our fans for the first time, after the showcase BTS members and staff members all cried, we went on music shows the next day, and Jin hyung cried. No matter how long it has been, I can’t forget those memories.
I don’t have anything new that I want to challenge in the future, I just want to challenge and see how far I can go with the things I’m doing now. I’m also diligently learning Japanese because I want to speak Japanese fluently!
Hey everyone, sorry I’m late but I was on vacation all last week and weekend and only just got back. It was great but when I logged on it was like I had missed a months worth of content! This fandom is amazing! Anywho, here’s my contribution and another post is sure to follow soon.
Coffee Shop/College/Fake Dating au
Kim meets Jason when they’re six
he moves into the house down the road from hers but since they live in the mountains and there’s nobody else close by they’re essentially neighbors
his mom offers to babysit Kim while her parents work and thus they become best friends
They’re twelve and at Amanda Clark’s birthday party when they’re dared to kiss
It’s a little gross and a lot awkward and it lasts five seconds but they’re the talk of their friends for weeks
that night however when Jason’s mom picks them up and they’re chilling in his room playing video games Jason confesses
Jason: “I… I think I like boys.”
Kim: “Oh… me too. And girls.”
Jason: “Oh. Cool cool.”
they pinkie swear not to tell anyone else
They start “dating” when they’re fourteen
they’re freshmen and Jason’s dad worked him into shape so when he tries out for the football team he makes varsity
and Kim has always been a fan of gymnastics so she joins cheer
but then one day at lunch, one of the older football guys makes a joke about how gay Jason is for the captain
its supposed to be a hazzing thing, but Jason really does have a crush on the captain and he freaks out too much not to raise at least a few suspicions
and Kim knows how bad it could get if Jason’s father found out about his son being a homosexual, not to mention social suicide by the other kids in highschool
so she waltzes up to the football table and plants one on Jason in front of everybody
Kim: “You wish Jason was in love with you Zeke. But get in line, I was here first.”
and everyone buys it
that night they come up with the ruse: pretend to date, appease their peers and their parents, and never tell a soul
it works… for the most part
because they’re best friends they love each other but theres a period of time when Jason really questions his sexuality
Kim tries to help and support him, to assure him that what he’s feeling isn’t wrong, but Jason’s insecure and scared
they argue and fight a lot of the time
then one night when they’re sixteen and at another party thrown by Amanda, they get drunk and sleep together
and it’s super awkward
after its over they’re just lying in Jason’s bed when Jason jokes
“Yeah… definitely gay.”
and Jason has to smother Kim with a pillow she’s laughing so hard
And then senior year happens and shit hits the proverbial fan
because Jason gets detention for wrecking his car and Kim gets detention for kicking Ty Flemming’s ass because he was being homophobic and trying to spread shit about Jason and because Ty is Amanda’s boyfriend, out goes cheerleading
but then Jason meets Billy Cranston and Kim meets Trini Gomez
and Billy’s smart and silly and amazingly wonderful and Jason really really likes him
and Trini’s aloof and snarky and honest if not absolutely adorable and Kim really really likes her
and more times than not the couple spend the time they’re together talking about their respective crushes
And of course no one knows Jason and Kim aren’t really dating
and Billy’s confused because he thinks Jason’s hitting on him but he’s horrible at reading people and he keeps telling himself that it’s just Jason being friendly because he has a girlfriend
and poor Trini has to deal with Kim constantly flirting with her and trying her damnedest not to give in because Kim has a boyfriend and she’s straight
which just about blows up in all their faces
Trini’s still struggling with her sexuality and lets slip to Kim one night that she’s gay and Kim is like, oh honey i’ve known
but she’s mayhaps a bit too enthusiastic because Trini goes on the defensive and says Kim doesn’t understand, that she doesn’t get it
and then Kim accidentally lets slip Jason’s gay
and when Kim tries to explain the whole “fake dating” thing and her being bi and Jason being gay, Trini “nopes” it out of Kim’s window
Kim chases after her and tackles her over a cliff into a pond
Trini: “What is wrong with you?!”
Kim: “Well I’m in love with you but I wouldn’t say that’s ‘wrong’.”
Kim totally kisses her after that but since they’re up in the mines they get caught by Billy and Jason
(Billy had told Jason they were going treasure hunting and Jason was almost in the same boat as Kim)
So they explain to Billy and to Trini again that they’re not really dating and that they’re in love with them, but now no one knows what to do because outing themselves could mean hell, both at school and at home
(I sorta forgot about Zack until this point, my poor baby. Just pretend he’s Billy and Trini’s friend whom they go to with their Jason and Kim problems)
Zack comes up with the plan
They’ve got a month til graduation so Kim and Jason will continue to “date” and then break up over the summer and since they’re all going to the same university, they all get a place off campus and then Jason can be with Billy and Kim can be with Trini
because Bily’s uncomfortable engaging in any type of relationship while Jason’s still technically with Kim and Trini agrees that she doesn’t want to be a side piece, even if Kim and Jason aren’t technically dating
It’s difficult but they follow the plan… mostly
Kim and Jason win Prom King and Queen but instead of dancing together they break up on stage and then bounce, Billy and Trini following discreetly behind them
everyone’s stil in shock when Zack jumps on stage and steals both crowns, calling himself the “Almighty Prom Quing” before highjacking the music and crowd surfing before he’s chased out by chaperons
They graduate and spend the summer sneaking around with each other before Kim finds a place off campus and they move in within the week
Zack ends up moving into the basement because that’s the only place sound doesn’t travel to and he can finally get some sleep
the new rule is to always knock before entering any room and then knock again just to be sure

It was summer when you were walking around town while hiding from everyone, you worked for your dad. You didn’t live in the town but you were an extremely young private investigator. At seventeen you had gotten your license after graduating high school a year early and joined the family business. Getting off topic here but your Dad had sent you to Riverdale for one of his customers.
You had your normal phone along with possibly sixty burner phones hidden under a loose floorboard in your motel room. They were critical in your line of business if you didn’t want to be tracked by the police.
You were hiding behind a unkempt building that seemed to be ignored by the town of Riverdale. You watched at the pastel mint green classic Volkswagen beetle slowly moved passed a construction sight. Inside of the person of interest with sunglasses on hiding her disgusting teenage boy preying eyes while seductively biting a straw.
