Recently, Taeyang shared the behind story of how he got to collaborate with BTS’s Jimin and also shared a funny happening because of Jimin’s name.
In an interview with Spotify, Taeyang confessed that he accidentally invited the wrong Jimin to dinner to talk about the musical collaboration. Taeyang began by explaining, “So I told Jimin I had a song and asked whether he wanted to work with me, and he said he’d love to. So we made a group chat, and I went to the restaurant that day, but the Jimin I met there, was a different Jimin…”
He continued to share, “There was an artist with the same name, so I had invited a different Jimin to this dinner. I thought to myself ‘Why is this person here?’ and ‘Everything had gone wrong.’ But what can I do? We still had a great dinner together. After that, I met up with (BTS’s) Jimin for a meal, and we started making music.”
