We know that each BTS member has a distinctly different personality and family background.
RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook shared details about their pre-debut lives with their families.
RM said that he went down a completely different path when he was living in Ilsan. At that time, RM considered going to college for journalism. And when he was 12 or 13 years old in 2007, he wrote his first-ever song.
Jin’s family like?
The business-savvy singer was born into a family of entrepreneurs in Gwacheon.
Suga’s father encouraged him to pursue journalism, but Suga’s true love is music. He wrote his first song at age 13.
Suga doesn’t come from a musical family, but there is some love for the arts in his genes.
J-Hope, who was born in Gwangju, did not follow in his parents’ footsteps; instead, he chose to pursue dance from a young age. He describes his mother as a strong-willed woman who ran an internet his cafe, and his father was a literature teacher.
Jimin’s father saw his son growing up to be a prosecutor. He was an athletic child from Busan who considered becoming a police officer but ultimately decided to dance professionally instead.
V, who hails from Daegu, is one of the only BTS members who has fellow artists in his family. His father once dreamed of becoming famous and described him as “super-talented”.
Jungkook also comes from an artistically inclined family, from Busan. He inherited his golden vocals from his parents, who both like to sing.
Jungkook is a multi-talented artist who likes to draw, and so does his older brother, who is an illustrator.
