【JIMIN： I like my eyes】
Q: Jimin is always wearing sleeveless shirt, are you confident with your arms? Or you still satisfies with your abs? （^ v ^）
JIMIN: I wear sleeveless shirt is not because I am confident with my arm. I never think that even in the winter I still wearing like that… (smile). The favorite part of my body is my eyes, I like my eyelids a little swollen.

（JIN: I also only wear earring on the left ear. It is because my favorite actors always only piercing one side when I was a child… I thought I also want to do that in my life time, so i just what happened now.)

It must be very hard in trainee period, how you guys did to got through that period? ^^
RAP MON: If I wanted to change my mode, I usually wrote some song, eat some food, many different ways. For me, I usually went on alone when I felt down. I went to Han River or park this kind of place dosen’t have too many people. I walked alone and listened to music then I well comfortable. However, I can’t go out to much now. Because I might recognize by someone, in case… Just kidding (smile)
J-HOPE: My hometown is in country side, so when I feel down, I usually thought my parents who live faraway from me. They always support me from far place, when I thought of then, I had courage to continue.
It’s already half year since you guys debuted. Can you tell us anything changed in this period and the thing “not change even though you debuted”!
RAP MON: Everything changed. I think everyone looked like ordinary people, but they become handsome now. We were usually worn swearshirts everyday, feel like bas students (smile). The thing doesn’t change is the looks of our dorm. We quarrel for little things like who talk shower first, who borrow whose clothes without speaking anything, the dirty room…
J-HOPE: Just like the time when we were trainees (smile). Another thing that doesn’t change is that, we still a tender and good children . We considerate each other. Ha ha ha.
V: I become a little thinner. The things that doesn’t change, my eyes and personality?
JIMIN: Give the answer like this, V really an alien~ Although we change a lot, just don’t forget the original intention that we want to become better and better.
JUNGKOOK : Yap, don’t forget the original intention.
JIN: If we feel one of our member have some change, we will tell him ‘’ You change!”
What is the most surprise gift from fans?（*^^*）
JUNGKOOK: After I said ’it is good if I have massager’, I really got one.
JIN: I got the doghouse for my dog in my hometown. It’s really big and surprised me!
J-HOPE: I received a super long long letter that folded in to bellows-like .I thought she was really like me at that time~ I feel very touched. Because I got it in my trainee period.
JIMIN: I also got letter that full of the small words on really large paper. I also got gifts from Japanese fans that full of regard.
JIMIN: Moreover, the letter was wrote in Korean, it is cute that had some small mistake in the letter, thank you to everyone.
Q Any special secrets that only members know?^—^?
RAP MON: Ah… I think we talk everything already. Is there any birthmark on hips ? I know the answer, NO (smile). Because we take shower together.
J-HOPE: It already a daily things that we take shower together. (smile). There is only one bathroom, so it’s usually two people wash together, something three. There is truly no secret.
Q: If you were a girl, who do you want to have a relationship?
JIN&JUNG KOOK: I choose myself.
SUGA: If I were a girl, I think I also want to choose myself. (smile) I’m not playful and not talkative, and do everything calmly… My personality just like daddy.
JIMIN: I choose Jung Kook. He is easy get shy which is his cute side. He also have the side that like man unconsciously.
V: I choose J-Hope hyung. Although he is not a funny guy, but his smile always make people’s mode become better.
RAP MON: I also choose J-Hope and Jimin. I don’t like bad woman or bad man types. I think the person who like someone can express their feeling directly is better. If I were a girl I would choose the man that will treat me really seriously. So these two people are my answer.
J-HOPE: I LOVE YOU，RAP MON . I also choose RAP MON！He is a real man, If I were a girl, I will be attracted by his voice. He might compose song for me, it sounds pretty nice.
Q : Bangtan look always have good relationship. Are you still fight with each other? If so, what were the reasons you fight?
RAP MON: For example, the food bought buy someone was ate by other, so conflicts like that. (smile)
JIN: We are not to the point of fighting.
RAP MON: The new clothes that were borrowed by someone without speaking… Little things. If someone said he wants to try the clothes it will be OK. Oh, but the clothes that as a gift from our fans will not lend to anyone absolutely. Because that are the gifts give to specific member.
JUNGKOOK: I lack of social experience. Although I just want to joke, some inappropriate words just cane out from my mouth. At that time, hyungs will teach me something.
Q: V is famous about his alien style. So please tell me some really unusual story!
V: I don’t think I’m that kind of person.
JIMIN: Although he dosen’ t think so, but it’s true. I usually stay next to him and think about that “What will he do next?”
V: It sounds natural! Look, if you want to dancing, just go out and dance! Why people need to go to CLUB specially and dance? Also, for singing, if you really want to singing, you can singing anywhere. In the dorm or in the practice room is okay.
JIMIN: If you do the things like that I am not said you are an alien, But I saw you look at distance and then suddenly yelling “wo~wa~~!” something like that.
V: That was because I made a wish to the sky. It was showed on TV drama before, right? I just wanted to imitate.
Q: Question to all member! If you can exchange with one member in one day, who do you want to exchange to ?
JIMIN: Ah.. I still want to live in my all body (smile). If really need to choose someone, I think it would be J-Hope hyung. I think that hyung have serious expression and also the simple one. I want to know want him think about when he show those expressions. Then, I also a little want to exchange with Rap Monster hyung. (Because he is tall.) I’m wondering the smell of the air above smell like (smile).
V: I breathe the air above I think is quite nice compare with below. (smile) I want to become Jimin , I want to show the abs when perform ‘NO MORE DREAM’ in front od people.
JUNGKOOK: I want become Rap Mon hyung because I want to have the nice brain that hyung have.
JIN: I want to become Jung Kook. If I only have one day, I want to become the person like Jung Kook who is good at everything.

JIN:I want to bring Jung Kook with me. First, he is physically strong, and he usually bring the things I need, so it will be really big hope.
JUNGKOOK: I also want to pick Jin hyung. Hyung is cooking really well. He will use the things that I bring with me carefully.
RAP MON: I choose V. Because he is noisy, I will not feel lonely. J-Hope will also be OK. Because he is optimistic, I think he will tell me that “There is hope to live!” (smile)
