On his YouTube channel, Brightoon TV, he’s released several videos about his time training with the BTS members and has revealed stories that show what their true personalities are like. Here’s a list of some of these stories.

1. Suga taking Jihoon to the hospital

When Jihoon was a trainee, he once had serious stomach problems in the middle of the night, which caused him to throw up multiple times.

Suga ended up checking up on Jihoon during the night and eventually took him to the hospital.

Jihoon stayed at the hospital for an entire night, and Suga was with him the whole time. Not only that, but Suga also paid for Jihoon’s hospital fees with his own money!

2. RM’s leadership when he was a trainee

One time, Jihoon was practicing with all the other trainees at Big Hit Entertainment when RM suddenly gathered everyone.

After gathering all the trainees, RM gave an encouraging message that Jihoon remembers to this day.

I might fail to be a BTS member, and it might be Jihoon that becomes a BTS member or another friend that could be one.

We don’t know who is going to become what. But when we are competing against each other, let’s have competition in good faith.

3. The BTS members taking care of Suga

When BTS were trainees, they didn’t have much money, but that didn’t stop them from doing a heartwarming act for Suga. The day Suga was going to take the suneung, which is a College Scholastic Ability Test, the members decided to secretly prepare him a lunchbox. On the morning of the exam day, the members woke up and started preparing the lunchbox. Not only that, but the members also wrote heartfelt letters to encourage Suga.

However, while they were making the meal, Suga ended up waking up due to the noise and knew they were preparing a lunchbox. Despite this, Suga just pretended to sleep and let the members continue, and he ate the lunchbox deliciously.

Anyway, they repeatedly told me to open my lunchbox at lunchtime so I waited until lunchtime. When I opened it, it was a chicken breast dish with rice, Vienna sausages, and rolled up omelets. I mean, we’re trainees; where would they get money from? They just made it with what we had in our dorm, but I ate it very deliciously by myself.
