The missing member couldn’t believe this, so he had to go to the place to ask 7 guys.
His mental health back then began to deteriorate. As a result, he often broke down and missed many classes. More than that, he missed BTS – the people he practiced with every day.
One day, he decided to surprise them by showing up at the dorm and treating them to fried chicken.
“Even if I was eliminated, before the group debuted, I used to sneak back to the dorm with some fried chicken,” said Jihoon.
He took the opportunity to ask if a debut had been decided and, more importantly, if the group’s name was really the Bulletproof Juvenile Corps.
“When we ate together, I asked them: Are you guys really debuting? What will the group name be? Is it really the Bulletproof Juvenile Corps? And I was so shocked when I found out they were going to debut with that name,” Jihoon recalled.
The name Bulletproof Youth Union when BTS first debuted was indeed the subject of ridicule for many, but over the years, it became more and more cherished. Now, it’s a much-loved name because BTS has lived up to it!
