Meet the Sexy Mochi of ARMY’s Favorite, BTS’s Jimin
Born as Park Ji-min, this South Korean singer and dancer is best known as Jimin. He learned how to pop and lock when he was a student of Just Dance Academy. He was a top student in the modern dance department when he studied contemporary dance at Busan High School of Arts. After a teacher suggested he audition with an entertainment company, he auditioned for Big Hit Entertainment in 2013. The following year, on June 13, he made a debut as a member of BTS with the position of dancer and vocalist, with the single album “No More Dream”.
From January through May, 2018, Jimin won the monthly Peeper x Billboard Award for “Top K-Pop Artist – Individual”. The prize was a donation to the charity UNICEF in his name, as reported by News Joins. Along with his fellow members of BTS, he was awarded the Fifth-Class Hwagwan (Flower Crown) Order of Cultural Merit by the President of South Korea for “outstanding meritorious services in the fields of culture and art in the interest of promoting the national culture and national development” on October 24, 2018.
BTS’ Jimin’s Selca Appreciation Post
A selfie is a self-portrait photograph, and the word has even held a place as an official word in the Oxford dictionary since 2013. In South Korea, the action of taking a “selfie” is called “Selca”, a mashup of the English words self and camera. Many Koreans love taking a photo of themselves and uploading it onto their social media accounts. Of course the trend has spread to South Korean artists too. In particular, BTS’s Jimin always claims that he needs to take dozens of photos, at least 30 selcas, just for one selca tweet. “To be honest, I’m not photogenic. Well, you can see my face on the fan which is the BTS concert merchandise. It doesn’t look good at all, while the other members look handsome,” said Jimin when he did a broadcast to meet his fans on V Live.
However, TenAsia put his name in their Top 5 most photogenic faces of the year in 2014. TenAsia’s photographer, Gue Hye-jung said, “His good body structure, pose, and gaze are very natural and what inspired the photo. BTS’ s Jimin takes pictures with poses that make others feel comfortable. So while taking pictures, his eyes look with intent and he takes on a natural gesture, as if he were a superstar in the past life,” as reported by Koreaboo. Let us appreciate the beauty of this sexy mochi from BTS!
