The members of BTS are more like a family than just a group, and they have proven it since before they even debuted.
Recently, Jimin shared just how close the members were even before realizing they’d be debuting together, but he had an unexpected apology to the rest of BTS.
On October 12, Weverse released a new interview with Jimin ahead of the release of his documentary Production Diary.
Among one of the questions, they asked Jimin about his most memorable birthday, and the idol explained that he remembered his special day when the members were all trainees.
Jimin revealed that when the BTS members were all trainees, and even before Jimin was confirmed to be debuting with team, they all pooled their money together to buy a bracelet for his birthday.
Even after debuting, Jimin cemented how important the gift was to him as he revealed that he kept it safe in a box.
Jimin then made ARMYs LOL by suddenly explaining, “But I lost it.” Like many people, Jimin was relatable as he revealed that the bracelet had gone missing while moving, and he apologized to the members with an adorable smile.
When the video was posted, netizens couldn’t get enough of the heartwarming gesture from the members long before BTS was even a thing. They also loved how Jimin apologized for losing it, even though he had spent years cherishing it so much and everyone loses things.

Most memorable birthday for Jimin was during trainee days before he was a confirmed member, when members pooled their money together and got him a bracelet. He kept it safe for a very long time but lost it while moving pic.twitter.com/OMuWNOLflQ

Even though Jimin might have lost the bracelet, the fact he still remembers it so fondly shows how close the members are and how close they have been for years, even before the BTS lineup was confirmed.
