On a new episode of IU‘s Palette, BTS‘s J-Hope shared his entire story of how he grew a dream to become a singer.
After participating in a talent show in 5th grade by chance, he received praise for his performance from his peers.
Dancing to techno music, he impressed his friends.
From this positive experience, a dream was born!
My friends loved it. That made my heart flutter.
Loving this feeling, he grew a dream to become an artist. However, he kept it hidden because he felt too shy to tell others his big dream.
If you say, ‘I want to be a singer’ then people ask you to sing, and I can, but it seemed embarrassing at that time.
Instead, he kept it vague and used “dance musical actor” as his cover-up. However, J-Hope always knew he wanted to be a singer!
It wasn’t until he passed auditions that he was able to grow his confidence and tell others his true dream.
It seems J-Hope is right when describing his journey as “destiny.” We can’t imagine how different everything would be if he had never tried the talent show!
