Meanwhile, Jimin recently admitted he "didn't have any ambition" to join BTS.

The musician revealed it was his bandmate Suga, 30, who inspired him to be in the group with him, Jungkook, 26, V, 27, Jin, 31, RM, 29, and j-hope, also 29.

Appearing on Suga's Suchwita talk show, he said: "When I first joined the agency as a trainee, I didn’t have any ambition to be on the team, because I didn’t think it was my team.

"But it was because of you [that I changed my mind].”

He added: "I still remember the lights were off, and we were in our beds. I think we woke up because Namjoon was snoring, and you were on the top bunk.

“As you looked down towards me, and you said, ‘You’re a good singer, so I really want you to be on our team.’ That was when my ambition sparked."

Suga recalled the moment too, and explained he realized Jimin could do more than the agency was letting him at the time.

He said: "I knew what your tone and your voice would sound like when you sang. No one else on the team had that tone, [so] I felt that you could become a singer with a unique voice.

“I already knew, so that’s why I said that. I said, ‘He should be singing, why are you making him rap when he can’t even rap?’"
