BTS‘ J-Hope shared that Jimin was like a ray of sunshine in his darkest moments, dealing with the pressure of performing alone at Lollapalooza. The “Jack in The Box” creator held a live stream to interact with his fans after his performance at the festival and his bandmate’s support could be seen.
Jimin, who flew from Seoul to Chicago to show his support for J-Hope’s first solo music festival appearance, accompanied J-Hope throughout the Vlive. The rapper said the pressure of performing alone on stage was so intense that he lost his appetite and couldn’t even sleep well.
“I had no appetite when I came to the U.S., so I barely ate. When Jimin arrived, that’s when I finally ate“.
“As I was preparing for my performance, I felt like I was in infinite darkness. Jimin was literally a ray of sunshine in my darkness.
He helped me a lot“.
