High School Friends
As previously mentioned, Taehyung and Jimin used to be friends even before BTS’s debut. They went to the same high school. Actually, Taehyung went to Daegu Jaeil High School, meanwhile Jimin went to Busan Arts High School. But after both of them got accepted as Big Hit Entertainment’s trainees, they both went to Korea Arts High School and were schoolmates.
Taehyung and Jimin are the same age, which also means that they were in the same grade during high school; once, they were even in the same class!
Taehyung was the first one who went to Korea Arts High School before Jimin, that’s why he was introducing Jimin to all of his classmates and teachers at Korea Arts High School. Since Jimin came from Busan, he still had that Busan accent, which caused their friends during high school to make fun of him. But Taehyung was always there for him, to protect him and be such a good friend for him. Since then, their friendship has been going strong!
Taehyung’s Letter to Jimin

Then, all of them started to write the letters for one other members, and V’s letter was for Jimin. Guess what? The letter from V to Jimin caused both of them burst into tears due to the emotional and grateful feelings towards each other!
In the letter, V wrote how grateful he was to meet Jimin. Since their trainee period until their time now, Jimin had always been there for him and supported him. Jimin was really touched by the letter, since he knew that V really cared about him, and he expressed his gratitude that he’d met V.
Jimin was asked how he was feeling after receiving such a heartwarming letter from V, and he simply answered, “I think no one in our team would know how I felt“.

And here’s Taehyung’s letter to Jimin:
“Jimin-ah, hello~ Writing you this sincere letter is making me cringe, but I am trying to go on. Please understand. Since our trainee days, we came to Seoul without a clue. We woke up, put on school uniforms and attended the same school. We ate together, went to practice, and returned to the dorm.
Then we talked at night. After 6 years like that, you are now my dearest friend. Before our debut, you once got anxious about it. At the time, I had a meeting with the company and they asked me what I thought of you being on the team. I thought it over and said that you were there for me through the ups and downs, you were the one who laughed and cried with me.
So I said that it would be good if such a good friend could debut with me. It felt good to say that and I was happy to be able to debut with you. All our good memories made me happy and I am sorry that I am always on the receiving end. When I am in the bathroom crying, you cry with me. You also come to see me at dawn to laugh with me.
You care about me and have me in your thoughts. You work hard for me and you understand me. You listen to my concerns and like me even though I am lacking. Let’s walk on a road with happiness. I love you buddy.
