Therefore, for J-Hope, possessing a nose that is too straight and prominently high makes him suspect that many people have asked for the “help” of cutlery. It was only when J-Hope’s high school photos were published, proving his perfectly natural nose, that people stopped spreading these rumors about him.

When a photo of Jungkook at the 2017 KBS Song Festival event was circulated online, netizens suddenly claimed that BTS’s youngest brother had attempted suicide by cutting his wrist.
