【SUGA X JIMIN X RAP MONSTER X J-HOPE】
Q: Recalling all of the events up until now, please tell us who you would like to thank and what’s great about him.
SUGA: Although all three of them are younger than me, they are like adults and handle problems very well. Especially Rap Monster – although his age is in the middle of the group, he plays the role of leader very well whether it is on stage or in life. I’m really thankful for that. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: I really need to thank Suga hyung. Sometimes when I see Suga hyung, I really think I should go into introspection. His existence is like a mirror. People are always easily limited by themselves or by those around them. But after talkng with hyung, he makes me ponder about what kind of person I am. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I think Jimin is very awesome. How should I say it.. he always lacked 2% in everything. It was a concern whether he could stay in the group. But now as everyone can see, he dances very well and also has a powerful presence on stage. It’s a result you only get from working hard. Watching him figure out the moves in front of the mirror and him working hard in vocal training, it makes me think that he’s very awesome and that there’s a lot for me to learn from. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: No, J-Hope hyung is also very awesome… (Shy). He’s always very optimistic and even I turn into having a good mood. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: Hahaha. I’m the type of person that likes to enjoy the moment. If someone asks what was the happiest moment, I will always answer that it’s right now, this moment! TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: The fans are a lot like you. At the high-five events before, hyung’s fans would yell, “Hya~!” It seems like everyone is very cheerful (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: After debuting, how are the members’ birthdays celebrated?
RM: We always surprise the birthday boy with a cake once it hits midnight. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: There will always be cake, even if it’s late or small. We already celebrated the members’ birthdays like this. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: Otherwise, you’ll probably be very disappointed if you’re the only one that didn’t get birthday blessings. But we don’t give presents. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: We, ourselves, are presents (laughs). Earlier when it was V’s birthday, he took a picture with K.Will sunbae-nim at a music festival. (V: I didn’t even know at that time. K.Will’s birthday is also on December 30th. He said to me, “V, it’s your birthday today? Happy birthday.” I was really happy.) TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: What are 3 things you’re thankful for besides family, friends, fans, and music?
JIMIN: Hm… it’s hard besides those four things… First it’s clothes and then food because I like to eat. Also, rest. I didn’t have much hobbies before and if I had to pick something, I would’ve said dance. But lately I’ve been liking drawing. When I was younger, I would draw for my brother. I really want to draw it again~ TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: This is hard… Microphone, Epik High. This gave me the opportunity for me to start doing music. Also Bang PD who helped me be me. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: BTS, Big Hit (laughs). Lastly it’s headphones because it’s very important (laughs). The headphones I listen to music with in the car are basically all gifts I received from the fans. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: Water, air.. It probably won’t do if I answer like that (laughs). Then I’ll just say what first came to my mind. Me, internet, and electricity. I often look up stuff online. It would be very inconvenient if there’s no internet. Internet is also very useful when making music. If there’s no internet, I can’t make music. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
【RAP MONSTER X SUGA】
Q: The origin of your name?
RM: My real name is Kim Namjoon and Chinese characters is 金南俊. It’s hard to write Chinese characters… and I often forget them. My parents gave me the name. Nam means South Korea and (the whole name) means “talent of the south.” I think it should mean that. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: My real name is Min Yoongi. I have the Chinese characters stored in my phone… Ah, here it is. It’s written as 闵玧其. Gi (其) is a generational name (the same character for the family members in the same generation). My hyung also uses that name. I don’t know the origin of the name (laughs). It probably means to hope to live on smoothly.TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: If you had to make each other happy within an hour, what would you do?
RM: I don’t need an hour. I can make him happen within 3 seconds. The technique is to say to him, “We have days off so we can go back to our hometown.” Hyung should be the happiest after hearing that. I’ll call him an hour later to tell him it’s a lie and to apologize to him. “(In Japanese) It’s a lie, sorry~” TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: Ah~. I will take Rap Mon out to eat meat. I think he should be happy if I do that. We actually go out to eat together quite often. The composing profession doesn’t end until the sun comes up. When we get hungry, we both will go eat and then return to the dorms. Can we say we go Dutch in terms of paying?TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: No, pay for me~ TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: Actually it wasn’t that we split it in half at first. It was the person who had money forked the entire bill. On average (in terms of total of all meals), it’s probably about half and half.TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: What made the relationship between you two well?
Rap Monster: Suga moved into my dorms after 3 months. Even though it was our first time meeting and suddenly living together, it’s a must that we get a long (laugh). There’s a park near our dorms and we would eat snacks while we chat about a lot. We chat about things like girlfriend from junior high… No doubt we are guys; we get close just by talking about girls (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Suga: (laughs) We not only talk about that. We also got a lot closer through music. We had monthly evaluations when we were trainees. At that time Rap Mon and I were in the same team writing songs. This was a very crucial matter.TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Meanwhile, Jimin really works hard so I love him dearly ever since we were trainees. Seeing him work hard makes me want to treat him well. J-Hope will ask me a lot of questions about music. I’m not very good at socializing, but J-Hope will take the initiative to come to me so our relationship became well.TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
【JHOPE X JIMIN】
Q: The origin of your name?
J-HOPE: My real name is Jung Hoseok and Chinese characters is 郑号锡. I heard my parents gave me that name when they went to a temple. It means “having your own name spread throughout the country.” TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: Park Jimin. Chinese characters is 朴智旻. It means “wisdom is greater than the sky.” My grandfather gave me that name. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: If you had to make each other happy within an hour, what would you do?
J-HOPE: I think Jimin will be happy if I take him out to eat (laughs). Ah, he should be happy if I buy pants for him! Lately he’s always been shouting in the dorms, “Hyung, I don’t have any pants to wear~ what to do~” (laughs). Although I never really bought any for him before, I would say to him, “Wear this.” Then I give him the clothes he likes and often take him out to eat~ TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: I can easily get J-Hope hyung to laugh. Just one minute is enough. Hyung will laugh when he sees me trying to hold in my pain or when I’m desperately exercising. (V: For example when Jimin is about to sit down and someone pulls out his chair on purpose, everyone, not only J-Hope, will laugh when we see his butt fall on the floor.) Everyone says I have such a big reaction and is funny. I then shout in despair, “Aaaahhhhhh…” I really hate this! (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: What made your relationship between each other well?
J-HOPE When Jimin first came to the office, I was the one that picked him up. My first impression was a kid that came to Seoul from Busan. Now he’s totally exquisite (laughs). Jimin and I are both good at dancing so I asked him what dances he does. We both practiced until the sun came up so our relationship also became well. Although sometimes he is a bit frivolous, he also has his serious side. Both of us go out to eat together and chat about a lot of things. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: That’s right. I learned a lot about dance from hyung. Besides hyung has an open personality where he can be friends with anyone so we became very close. But when we were doing introductions to others, you called me “Jimin-gun.” I also said, “Ho, Hoseok-gun…” (laughs) It was very awkward at that time (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
【JUNGKOOK X JIN X V】
Q: What are 3 things you’re thankful for besides family, friends, fans, and music?
JIN: Bed, food, and entertainment. I’m a simple being; I’ll still feel very happy even if I’m just eating. I’ll still eat even if I’m full, although it’s not exactly a good thing (laughs). If I’m not hungry, I want to sleep for 24 hours – I like sleeping to that degree. I really like to roll around in bed. Entertainment also because it can adjust to a variety of moods so it’s awesome. For example, if today I need to feel excited, I would watch happy movies. Movies, dramas, animes are easy to substitute feelings so I really like it. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: There’s too much, it’s hard to choose. Hmm.. home, computer, phone. I can play high-quality games on my computer and I can play around and go on Kakaotalk on my phone. If there’s no home/family, there’s no way I can live on (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Phone, headphones, clothes. I really like clothes. (Jimin: Even though V cares about fashion a lot, he would be really shy in front of us. He would close the door and try on a lot of clothes in front of the mirror.) My fashion inspiration is Ryu Seungbeom and American model Cole Mohr. They can show off their own exclusive expressions, very handsome. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q. What made the relationship between the three of you well?
JIN: Jungkook and I arrived at the practice studio on the same day. The first day we felt a bit distant. Our relationship naturally became well after practicing and eating together. My relationship with V turned well when we found out we both like anime. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Yes, it was the most awkward with Jin hyung at first. It felt like Jin hyung wasn’t very close. I kept thinking about what I can do to improve our relationship. We found out the moment we both slept on the upper bunk. One day Jin hyung was watching anime in bed and I asked what he was watching. It turned out to be an anime I liked! I also like anime so we both started chatting about it. Jin hyung will let me borrow the ones I haven’t watched and would also recommend ones to me. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: The animes of Mamoru Hosodo, Miyazaki, and other famous directors – I must watch two animes everyday. We would then discuss it together. We like it to this degree. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Also, we both like to search up good places to eat at. We often eat out. This is a very similar interest of ours. My relationship with Jungkook is like that of same-age friends. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: We originally were very in tune but our relationship suddenly turned well because we went for vocal training together. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Jungkook is a bit shy in the dorms. He only started letting loose after we got close. And therefore we no longer had any other concerns and everyone became close. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: Recalling all of the events up until now, please tell us who you would like to thank and what’s great about him.
JIN: Once V decides to do something, he will definitely do it. His strong spirit for challenges is very powerful. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: He’s also good at taking selfies hahaha. He’s very versatile. He’s very good at looking into a camera on stage and showing himself. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Isn’t everyone also good at that? Jungkook blends his life very well with music; it’s really worth learning from. From sleeping to waking up, he’s listening to music the entire day. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: When he sees me fail on stage like I didn’t dance well, he would quietly come over and say and teach me, “You’ll be able to do it well if you do it like this.” Even though when I say “teach me” and he says “no way,” he still comes over to help me during the times I do need help. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: In fact when I first came to Seoul, I didn’t know anything so Jin hyung also helped me a lot. Love you~ TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
【V X JIN X JUNGKOOK】
Q: The origin of your name?
V: My real name is Kim Taehyung and Chinese characters is 金泰亨. The ‘亨’ means all wishes come true. It has the meaning of even if I encounter something difficult, I will be able to pass it smoothly. My grandfather is a (professional) namer. He was the one that gave me my name. The meaning of my dad’s and my name is very similar. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: My real name is Jeon Jungkook and Chinese characters is 田柾国. My grandfather, who has past away, gave me the name. I don’t know the origin of it (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: My real name is Kim Seokjin and Chinese characters is 金硕珍. My grandfather gave me that name and it means “to become a huge treasure.” I really like it! TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: If you had to make Jin happy within an hour, what would you do?
V: I will recommend interesting anime that Jin hyung has never watched before! Like this, he’ll be happy within a minute, no, 5 seconds! TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: So it’s like that. I’m younger than Jin hyung by 5 years… how can I make him happy? (laughs) TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: There’s no relation to age~ TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I think it should be chatting about anime with him, eating, and just being with him. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: Yes, I’ll be happy like that. When I cook, Jungkook usually comes help me. He would wash the rice, cut the onions, flavor the meat, and things like that. He helps me a lot. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: If you had to make Jungkook happy within an hour, what would you do?
JIN: I will take Jungkook out to eat. There were several times when my parents and I took Jungkook out to eat. He eats so well when we take him to restaurants that Busan doesn’t have – I’m also very happy. I think we ate meat at a hotel right? TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: It was super delicious! TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: I will act out skits with Jungkook. We usually start acting when we face each other. The topic will change according to the current situation. If it’s a sad (skit), I will suddenly drop down to my knees when I see Jungkook. And Jungkook will also kneel down… TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Jin: That really does happen. I don’t participate and only watch on the side. I would go, “Ah, they’re starting again..” (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Sometimes we would deliberately act out romance skits face-to-face. Jungkook would go “da da da” and start singing his own BGM. We’ll also act when we’re eating. (Reenacted live: they were doing eating motions and suddenly stopped in the middle of reaching over to grab food, and raised their heads to face each other. They revealed their expressions of falling in love.) I just simply wanted to act it and only Jungkook naturally and slowly did it with me. I also did it a few times with Jimin but it didn’t go as smoothly as it does with Jungkook… (Jimin: I guess I still have learning to do.) TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: If you had to make V happy within an hour, what would you do?
JUNGKOOK: I will show V hyung a funny performance. He’ll laugh within 20 seconds. Also doing the skits that hyung loves. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: V and I are both foodies. We can eat deserts together for an hour. Even if I don’t do anything, the delicious deserts is enough to make him happy. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: That’s right. Eating is happiness! Like I mentioned earlier, when we were trainees and after classes were over, Jin hyung and I would go out to eat. Others will immediately go home, but we both ate together everyday. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: Yes, I don’t like to eat dukbokki all the time so I like to find something else to eat. We’ve eaten Vietnamese food, Jjajangmyun, BBQ, sashimi, oden, pig feet, pizza… now that I think about it, we really did eat a lot (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
[Rap Monster: No secrets]
To: RAP MONSTER
Q: Why is Rap Mon the leader? I really like Rap Mon.
RM: I am the first member of Bangtan Boys. We had several member changes during the trainee period. The current members were fixed when we debut. Afterall, we are a hip hop group and it was formed around me, who is a rapper. So that was how I naturally became the leader. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
[V: I’m not 4D]
Q: There’s a video where V suddenly started dancing by himself on the street at night. Why were you dancing alone?
V: When we first came to Japan, we finished an interview and there was some time left. I wasn’t hungry yet and the interview shooting was a bit noisy. The temperature outside was just right so I went outside. Even though there’s pedestrians around, they can watch if they wanted to. I jumped around to kill time. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
[Jimin: I like my own eyes.]
Q: Jimin always wear sleeveless shirts. Are you the most confident in your arms? Or is it your abs? （^ v ^）
JIMIN: I’m not wearing sleeveless shirts because I’m confident in my arms. I never thought I would have to wear that even in the winter… (laughs). My favorite part of my body is my eyes. I like the type of eyes that look a bit puffy. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
(V: Even if you’re confident in your abs, wearing shirts that bear your midriff is too much….)
[J-Hope: In fact I am quite attentive.]
Q: During self-introductions, J-Hope always says “hope, hope.” What’s the thing you hope for the most right now?
J-HOPE: First is for Bangtan Boys to be a big success. After that is for me to continue to grow to become the best artist. Also, to work hard and study Japanese. In Japan I need to be able to introduce myself to everyone. Full of hope! (laughs) TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
[Jin: Pajamas are a necessity]
Q: What kind of singer does Jin want to become?
JIN: I like a British singer called Daley. Listening to his soft singing technique and sweet voice makes one feel very calm. It’ll be great if I can also become a singer like that. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
[Suga: My personality is exactly the same as my dad’s.]
Q: Suga oppa said before that he steals Jungkook’s underwear. Was it successful at other times?
SUGA: It seemed like Jungkook became very careful after that so it wasn’t successful. Well, I also don’t steal Jungkook’s underwear everyday (laughs). I only borrow when I don’t have anymore to wear. I bought a few pairs now so I’m all set. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
[Jungkook: A manly Busan child]
Q: Why does Jungkook always pierce his right ear?
JUNGKOOK: There’s no reason. Even though I have piercings on both ears, my ears got hurt when I was training. That’s why I didn’t get anymore piercings there but I also hurt my right ear practicing this time. So I’m pretty much not wearing any on both ears (laugh). (Jin: I also only wear on my left ear. It’s because in the movies I watched when I was younger, all of the actors I liked only wore earrings on one side… I always thought when I was younger that I will only wear it on one side.) TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
[Music & Activities]
Q: Please let us know of the female artists you like!!
RM: Younha. I heard that she is also active in Japan. I’m truly her fan. She’s currently a radio DJ in Korea and I really want to be on it in the future. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I recently saw Lim Junghee’s stage presence. Although she’s a big sunbae, I would like to work with her in the future. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Which song of yours do you like?
RM: So hard…. ah, the hidden track ‘Road/Path’ in 2 Cool 4 Skool. The reason is as long as you’re listening to it, you’ll still be in a good mood. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I like Paldo Gangsan (Satoori Rap) since it’s in satoori. This song can show nicely the color of Bangtan Boys in which 5 members grew up elsewhere. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: I like ‘I Like It’ the best. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: I also like ‘I Like It.’ It’s a song I easily wrote without any twists and turns so I’m very satisfied with it. Besides, fans also like this song.TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Attack on BTS. I like upbeat songs so this song really suits me. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I personally like ‘We On.’ (starts singing) TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: There must have been many hardships during the trainee period. How did you get through this period of time? ^^
RM: If I really wanted to change up my mood, I would write songs, eat delicious food.. there’s actually a lot of ways. When it felt difficult, I usually went out on my own. I would go to Hangang or the park, places where there’s not a lot of people. I would walk around while listening to music. Lately I haven’t been able to go out much since I may get recognized. If I don’t manage myself well, there might…. just kidding (laugh). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: My hometown is elsewhere so when time got difficult, I thought about my parents who are far away. They have been supporting me from far away. As long as I think about wanting to see them, I would muster up the courage and continue on. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: It’s already been half a year since you debut. What has and has not changed in the past half a year?
RM: Everything has changed. Before everyone was normal and I think everyone became handsome now. I always wore gym/athletic clothes everyday and it felt like I was a bad student (laugh). What hasn’t changed is what the dorm is like. It’s exactly the same as before. We always fight over things like who gets to shower first, or who borrowed someone else’s things, or that the dorm is too dirty… TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: Exactly like how it was when we were trainees (laughs). What also hasn’t changed is how everyone is still gentle kids. There is mutual understanding between everyone hehehe. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: I got skinnier. What hasn’t changed is… eyes and personality? TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: V is definitely 4D for replying like that. Although a lot has changed here, don’t forget the original intention that we wanted to change for the better. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: Yes, don’t forget our early intentions. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: What’s the most surprising gift you’ve received from fans? （*^^*）
JUNGKOOK: I said it’d be great to have a massager and I really got one. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: I received a doghouse for my dog at home. It was too, too shocking. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I received a super, super, super long letter. I felt touched because she probably really liked me. And it was during the trainee period. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: I also received a big card where it was filled up with small words. I received very mindful gifts from the Japanese fans. And they were written in Korean; there were occasionally mistakes, so cute. Thank you everyone. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: Are there secrets that only the members know? ^—^?
RM: Hmm.. I think it has already all been disclosed before. Like whether we have birthmarks on our butts? That I know.. no (laughs) since we shower together. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: We shower together daily (laugh). There’s only one bathroom so pretty much two people would shower together. Sometimes even three would shower together. There’s really no secrets. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: If you’re a girl, which Bangtan member do you want to date?
JIN & JUNGKOOK: Myself. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: If I’m a girl, I would also want to choose myself (laughs). I’m not fond of playing and am not wordy, I’m relaxed when I do things… it’s very similar to my dad’s personality. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: I choose Jungkook. He’s easily embarassed so it’s really cute. He also has a manly side to him. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: I choose J-Hope hyung. Although he’s not an interesting person, one will be in a good mood all thanks to his smile. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: I choose J-Hope or Jimin. I don’t like the bad guy, bad girl thing. I think it’s better when you directly express your love. If I’m a girl, I will choose a guy that will wholeheartedly treat me well so those two would be my choice.TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I love you Rap Mon. I’ll also choose Rap Mon! He’s very manly. Also if I’m a girl, I would be mesmerized by his voice. He probably would write songs for me which would be great.
TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: Looks like the relationship within BTS is very good. Do you fight? If you do, what’s the reason?
RM: Things such as who ate the food someone else bought (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: It’s not really to the degree of fighting. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: Who borrows clothes that someone just bought.. just little things like that. The borrowing of clothes problem happens occasionally. If someone says they really want to wear that piece of clothing, then we’ll still let him borrow it. Ah, but the clothes that we received as gifts from fans are definitely not lent out since they are exclusively the belongings of the members. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I don’t have much social experience yet so when I want to joke around, I end up saying something I shouldn’t have. The hyungs would then lecture me. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: V is known for being 4D. Tell us stories that make him really 4D!
V: I do not think that (I’m 4D). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: Even though he doesn’t know it himself, he really is 4D. I would watch it from the side and keep thinking ‘why is he like this?’ TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: It’s obviously a justifiable thing! Look, if you want to dance, then you can just dance outside. Why do people go to clubs to dance? Also singing.. if you want to sing, you can sing anywhere – in the dorms or in the practice room. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: I won’t even call you 4D if it’s to that degree. I see you staring at something far away and then all of a sudden you scream out “Wahhhh~” TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: That’s because I’m making a wish to the sky. Isn’t there scenes that like in dramas? I just simply wanted to imitate it. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: To all members! If you can be another member for a day, who would it be?
JIMIN: Hmm… I still want to live in my own body (laughs). If I must choose, then J-Hope hyung. Sometimes hyung would have a serious look on his face. I want to know what he is thinking. I also want to be Rap Monster hyung. (Since he’s tall) I want to know what the air is like up there (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Since I’m breathing air up there, it’s not too bad (laughs). I want to become Jimin. I want to let everyone see my abs during the ‘No More Dream’ period. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I want to be Rap Mon hyung since I want to have his useful knowledge. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: I want to be Jungkook. If I had one day, I want to become Jungkook who’s good at everything. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I also want to become Jungkook. I’m concerned about what exactly Jungkook is thinking about. He’s a kid that would do out of the ordinary things. I also really want to know what it feels like to be the maknae. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: If you had to go to a deserted island, which member would you bring with you? Please state the reason.
JIN: I’ll bring Jungkook. First he’s strong and he usually carries around all of my necessities so he’s been a great help. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I also choose Jin hyung. Hyung is a good cook and will put to good use the things I bring over. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: I choose V because he’s loud so I won’t be lonely. J-Hope too because he’s very optimisic. It feels like he’s going to say to me, “There’s hopes of living!” (laughs) TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: If I’m with Jimin, I think we’ll be able to make things smoothly. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: I also choose Jimin because he listens well to me (laughs). Besides he’s very vital so it feels like he’ll still live quite well even on a deserted island. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Me too! Finding food to eat and giving me a massage… it feels like there’s a lot of things I can use Jimin for! TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: I absolutely will not go to a deserted island, absolutely (laugh). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: Which member looks the worst when sleeping?
JIMIN: I think #1 is V. He sleeps on the top bunk and it looks like he’s going to fall down. He also sleep talks. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: It scared me so much, so terrifying. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: He’s a kid that likes to act so even his dreams are like a mini drama. He would say things like “Oohh wah, no way~!” TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I sleep with my arms up, Jungkook sleeps with his legs crossed and Rap Monster also has his unique way of sleeping. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: Yes, and I thought I would be #1. I also almost fell down from the top bunk before and I also snore. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: “Although I don’t look like it, I’m actually a ___ guy!!” Please fill in the blank.
JUNGKOOK: Since I’m the maknae I usually give a cute image but I’m actually a Busan guy so I also have a cool side (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: Me too. I look like I’m well behaved but I’m actually very manly. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: Although I’m the oldest in the group, I’m actually the maknae at home. So I don’t look like it but I’m actually the maknae. I have an older brother. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: I’m not like how I look. I’m actually a very calm guy. I usually don’t like to talk and my moves are also very slow…. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: For me, I don’t look like it but I’m actually a detailed guy. Even though I’m the king of destruction, I’m very detailed and picky when it comes to music and my hobbies. If I clean, I must clean until every corner is spotless and in the end it turns into a big clean-up. It’s because I’m A blood type. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I also don’t look like it but I’m actually a detailed guy! I’m someone that thinks twice before I act. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: I… although I’m usually called 4D, I’m actually a healthy guy. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: What does that mean? A normal guy? TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Yes, that’s what it means! TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: Everybody screams when they see Jimin’s abs. Do you exercise everyday to keep up with the abs? I want to lose weight, do you have any exercise recommendations for me?
JIMIN: Before I must do sit ups everyday but recently sleep is the priority. Lately I’ve been busy so I haven’t had time to go to the gym. If I have time then I would sort of exercise a bit in the dorms. My weight-loss exercise recommendation is our dances (laughs). If you follow our dances, you’ll definitely be skinny. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Especially ‘We are Bulletproof 2’. It’s really effective. Sometimes after practicing it, I would get hungry. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: Hello Bangtan Boys （^_^）. Everyone’s personality has so many colors. Do you have any exclusive preferences in terms of eating and fashion?
JIN: I like to eat subtly/lightly. It’s not that I like to eat expensive food but rather food that suits my taste. But it seems like all of the food in the world suits my taste. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I like salty and spicy food. For clothes I like red and black. I only have those two colors in my closet. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIN: If you open his closet, it’s like one side is all black and the other is all red. There really isn’t any other color besides these two (laughs). TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I also don’t understand why I like red so much but I also want to try different colors. It’s perhaps time for a change?! TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
Q: Tell us about your clothes when you sleep!
JIN: I must wear pajamas no matter where I am. I prepared summer and winter pajamas. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JUNGKOOK: I will choose loose clothings to sleep in. It’s usually short sleeves. I’ll take it off if it’s hot and if it’s cold, I’ll wear long sleeves and a hoodie. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
SUGA: Although I like to sleep naked, I can’t since I live in the dorms. I wear a T-shirt and underwear. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
RM: I also wear gym shirts and underwear. It’s more comfortable that way. I actually want to take off my shirt but my stomach isn’t well so I can easily catch a cold. I also only wear gym clothes in the winter. It’s usually warmer in the house and the blanket is also thick. I like the feeling of the blanket touching my skin. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
J-HOPE: I’m different every day. I’ll only wear my underwear when I’m really tired. Usually it’s T-shirt and mid-length pants. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: Vest and pants. It’s the most comfortable pairing. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: I will consider it everyday when I sleep. Yesterday it was trousers and a white T-shirt. If I’m really tired and have no energy to think about it then I’ll just take it all off and sleep. Also, I sleep on the top bunk and sometimes it’s a pain to climb up and down. I usually sleep on Jimin’s bed, but Jimin…. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: After taking a shower I see V sleeping on my bed and I go, “Get out!” Then V will go to Jungkook’s bed. Then if Jungkook comes over…. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
V: Jungkook will wake me up and say, “Hyung, there’s no where for me to sleep. Go up.” But I’ll wait until Jungkook falls alseep and I’ll go back to his bed and sleep beside him. He’ll get angry and say, “Ah~ hyung! Hurry go up and sleep!” I can only say, “Ok, ok, I know, I know” and then go back up to my own bed. TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
JIMIN: It’s like that every time… TRANS C. YOOGAMIN @ TUMBLR
My aim is, frankly, to be the 1st! This has many meanings but, I want to get the 1st place in a music program and I also want to get a really important award at some awards ceremony. TRANS C. BTS-TRANS @ TUMBLR
“In 2014 I want to upgrade my vocal power!”
I really want to become a skilled person. I always practice every day but I think that I’m still lacking. TRANS C. BTS-TRANS @ TUMBLR
“Since we already got an award I want to work harder and show a better me. Since we’ll also have activities in Japan look forward to them”.
I’m also learning Japanese, so I’m already putting thoughts on working hard for our Japanese activities. TRANS C. BTS-TRANS @ TUMBLR
“In 2014 I want to upgrade my vocal power a lot and I want to impress a lot of people.” If I upgrade my vocal abilities I also think that BTS’s level will rise. TRANS C. BTS-TRANS @ TUMBLR
RAP MONSTER’S COMMITMENT
In 2014 I wrote about the songs I want to write and make. When it comes to songs, I want to make songs with R&B melody instead of ballads. Also, I don’t want to just rap, I also want to sing! TRANS C. BTS-TRANS @ TUMBLR
“In 2014 I want to try getting muscles/abs”. I think it’ll be good to try it once. I thought that if I get them it’ll be good. Since I’m I can’t lie to my body… TRANS C. BTS-TRANS @ TUMBLR
“I hope this year I don’t get sick…”
Since I got sick and couldn’t do anything I was really sad. So I’ll be good if in 2014 all the members are healthy. TRANS C. BTS-TRANS @ TUMBLR

APPEARING ON THE BACK COVER ☆ BTS’ OFF SHOT REVEALED!!
Hello to you all, did you all see the latest Haru*Hana which is now on sale?
BTS who just recently came back coolly with BOY IN LUV!
This time, their showcase held in Japan was also a big success!
BTS who decorated the back cover; we’ll now show you the off shots and the photos that weren’t available on the magazine!
First of all, Rap Monster and J-Hope who told us about their recording method~
Rap Monster said:
“We don’t spend a lot of time recording. First I warm up my throat before recording, and we I do almost 3 takes. And then I pay attention to the emotions and feelings of the lyrics. For the rap it’s important to know that time’s atmosphere. Even if it’s the same rap it can always change. That’s why in order to take advantage of the atmosphere (that was written) there’s also times that I finish it on purpose”.
“Unlike Rap Monster, I need to record a lot of times. That’s also why I think there’s a difference in the length of a rapper’s career. Also, since my pronunciation is not very good I also need to be careful with that”.
They’re two different recording methods, but that’s also why every one’s voice is charming (’-^*)/
Then, using the 116 page’s interview questions we asked “if you could use 1h to please the members?”
Also, apart from the combis the members formed: V & Jimin talked about the method to make Rap Monster & Suga pleased (laughs).
V: “I’ll take photos with Rap Monster-hyung! I don’t know why but when hyung sees me he bursts out laughing. Suga-hyung is difficult… because he’s a Daegu-style manly man”
Jimin: “I know how to please him! Suga-hyung acts like a Daegu-man but if you praise him he gets embarrassed and laughs. Sometimes even if it’s not really a compliment like if you tell him <(in dialect) Hyung, today you look cooler than ever!> he’ll laugh”.
V: “That’s right! Also, Suga-hyung tells jokes but we pretend to be indifferent. After that Suga-hyung reacts weirdly but if we don’t answer to that either and don’t talk for some reason he’s pleased~”
Jimin: “Pleased… (laughs)”
We’d like to see Suga’s weird reaction someday too :*:・(￣∀￣)・:*:
Lastly, before the actual shoot here’s J-Hope who dyed his hair for the first time since he was born.
When that topic came out, here’s J-Hope’s and Jimin’s conversation.
Jimin: J-Hope hyung dyed his hair for the first time since he was born!
J-Hope: Yes, I tried doing it… (shine)
Jimin: it suits you very well! Fufufufu (laughs)
J-Hope: Yes, I really like it.
Jimin: since he’s like my brother, when I saw him get really happy after dying it for the first time, how should I say it, I thought it was cute. Hehehe. Cute (while saying this he made a “good” sign to J-hope)
J-Hope: Cute~ (laughs)
And then both kept on exchanging laughs.
After that the hair style he wants to try is…
“I want to try having my hair of different colors from now on!” (J-HOPE)
“When we sang <The advance of Bangtan> I had my hair up but I want to try a bold cut or something that will give me a stronger look”. (Jimin)
In the 117-118 pages of the magazine we asked the members what the origin of their real names were.
Between those we’ll reveal the “since it’s hard I can’t remember it” which Jungkook and J-Hope wrote for us.
J-HOPE’S NAME: JUNG HOSEOK
They’re really difficult characters ((◎д◎ ))
JUNGKOOK’S NAME: JUNG JUNGKOOK
The characters also show Jungkook’s serious side right? (^O^)
The members photo shoot~
We’re revealing the off shot of the members, they’re pretty worked up.
In Jin, V & Jungkook’s photo shoot, V commented this!
“Jungkook is usually a bit shy. But today he took the photos quite cheerfully and smiled brightly. He was even able to show his joking side! Since the photos were taken willingly I think they’ll be pretty fun photos”.
Just like those words, you’ll be able to see the member’s good relationships in the magazine (^-^)/
