Of all BTS members, J-Hope was the first to celebrate Suga’s birthday on Twitter. With honest and touching writings about their friendship, what J-Hope did then moved Army to tears. J-Hope said that his friendship with Suga will continue from 2017 till forever.
BTS members are close like siblings, thanks to their decision to live together in a dorm, even after they are as famous as they are now. So it’s no wonder, the members really understand each other’s habits. Not only that, they can even guess the members from their breath sound.
This ability to recognize had happened long before this year. As revealed in BTS Festa 2015, Suga talked about his experience with J-Hope while on the toilet. At that time, BTS was attending a music event. Suga then went to the toilet and like one of the members who like to think hard, Suga was on the toilet he admitted that he was thinking about something very deeply. At that time, the owner of the real name Min Yoon-gi then sighed.
So, after that sigh, suddenly a voice came from the next cubicle, “Suga hyung?” Apparently, it was J-Hope’s voice who was also using the toilet. Apparently, just from a sigh, the owner of the real name Jung Ho-seok could recognize Suga.
Not only that, but Suga can also know the color and brand of J-Hope’s underwear. This hilarious moment was caught during the 97th Episode of Run BTS. At that time, J-Hope asked the members to guess the color of his underwear, and Suga immediately said that it was an easy question because he had seen it before. J-Hope was shocked and asked when Suga saw him. “I peeked when you changed your clothes,” he said casually, adding that he also knew J-Hope’s brand of underwear. “The two-color brand only,” he said.
