What You Might not Know About BTS’ J-Hope

BTS’ J-Hope is the “Sunshine” of the group. Many ARMYs have J-Hope as their bias wrecker. It’s because Jung Hoseok (Jung Ho-Seok) is a superb performer.

He’s not only a total stage ‘dynamite’ but is also a cheerful personality that keeps the group in a lively mood. His beautiful smile on his handsome face keeps the group and ARMY inspired and happy.

He’s the rapper and main dancer of the group, and he sometimes sings to the delight of fans. Who would ever forget his rendition of “Mama”, which he dedicated to his own mother.

In this song, Hobi recognized the sacrifices of his mother in allowing him to pursue his passion for dancing and being an idol.

He stated that his mother can be proud now, as he has succeeded in the career he has chosen. Watch the video below for this exhilarating performance.


And his smashing duet with rap partner, Suga, of a Japanese song, “Otsukare”. Watch the video below.

He does have a good voice that could be cultivated into being one of the vocalists as well.
