Even J-Hope is fascinated by the legendary past BTS era.
While BTS’s J-Hope was in Japan for his solo performance at the 2022 MAMA Awards, the BTS members traveled from Osaka, where the ceremony was being held, to Tokyo to visit the 2022 BTS EXHIBITION.
Nine years after its first public release, this exhibition is filled with precious memories. From stage costumes to behind-the-scenes photos to prop recreations, the exhibit was a memorable one for his J-Hope.
The BTS member’s visit was captured on a recent episode of Bangtan Bomb, the group’s official YouTube channel, showing his moving and hilarious reaction to the exhibition. As he walked through the Shinjuku Iiyama Kogyo building where the exhibition was being held, he involuntarily greeted the youngest children and cheerfully ‘called out’ to them.
Living the moment shown, J-Hope transitioned from a BTS member to a certified ARMY while taking pictures of various displays.
As we approached the “Boy With Luv” portion of the exhibit, J-Hope thought a lot about his 2019 song.
He came across the yellow sofa used in his music video for “Boy With Luv”.
J-Hope happily recreated the pose on the armrest of the sofa after asking him what Hobi was doing in a photo from his 2019 MV movie.
He looked at photos from that time and made hilarious comments about each member, pointing out Suga’s hair split in the middle, RM’s slimness during promotions, and V’s mature looks. J-Hope couldn’t help but rave about the era, declaring “Boy With Luv” to be the concept the group saw the most.
Of course, ARMY thinks that the members look good in any era!
