BTS ARMYs Celebrate 10 Years of Jimin Leaving His Hometown to Pursue His Dreams: ‘Our Idol, Our Artist’

Bangtan Sonyeondan or BTS is without a doubt one of the most popular and successful boy bands out there with millions of fans globally. But the fame and success that the South Korean group enjoys today were not served to them on a platter. The members of the boy band had to go through their fair share of the struggle, individually and as a group before cementing their name in the music industry. And May 15 is the date when Park Jimin, one of BTS’s main dancers, left his hometown of Busan to fulfill his dream of becoming an idol.

BTS fans, also known as ARMYs, took to Twitter to trend Jimin and reminded how the Serendipity singer has worked so hard to get to where he is today. One fan wrote: “On May 15, 2012, Jimin did a faith jump that changed his and our lives forever. He left everything in Busan to fulfill his dreams of becoming an idol. Thank you Jimin for choosing this path.

Our idol, our artist. ✨ #JiminMeetsSeoul JIMIN MEETS SEOUL. “

Another added: “Today is 10 years since Jimin left her hometown of Seoul to pursue her dreams of becoming an idol. Thank you for taking that extra step of faith, Jimin! You will always be famous and loved for your talents as well as your kind heart. ♡ “

ARMYs also shared flashbacks of Jimin talking about his training days.

However, Jimin had a hard time securing his place in the group initially. He studied contemporary dance at Busan High School of Arts and was a top student in the department of modern dance, but his dance style was very different from that performed by K-pop stars. Jimin had a hard time forming into that dance form during his internship days and was rejected 8 times before he became a final member.

Meanwhile, Jimin along with his other BTS members Rm, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V and Jungkook are currently busy with the upcoming release of their comeback album Proof. The album, an anthology, contains some of the twice Grammy-nominated group’s biggest hits such as group, solo and subunits. The announcement of three parts of the song list also revealed that BTS will release demo versions of their songs along with three new songs – Yet to Come, Run BTS and For Youth.
