Jihoon, who is also known as Brightoon on his YouTube channel Brightoon TV, shared a story on how Suga helped him when he was a trainee at Big Hit Entertainment. Jihoon shared that he once felt dizzy and nauseous in the middle of the night and that he threw up multiple times throughout the night.

Suga ended up checking on him during the night and realized that Jihoon needed to go to the hospital. Suga then got a taxi and took Jihoon to the hospital.

Jihoon ended up waking up the next morning and was in for a surprise when he saw that Suga had stayed with him overnight. Not only that, but Suga also filled out the paperwork for Jihoon to get the IV he needed, and paid for Jihoon’s hospital fees!

To this day, Jihoon is thankful to Suga.

Seunghee has been friends with V and Jimin since high school, as they were classmates. During an episode of Happy Together, she shared that the two were addicted to practicing when they were younger.

I still remember Jimin was all about practicing. That’s all he knew. He’d spend the night up practicing and come to school half-dead like a zombie.

He (V) would start dancing in the subway station, checking his moves in the reflection of the screen doors. I used to watch him do that… but he really did surprise me.

Kwon Jae Hwan shared that Suga was a model student and that he never violated the school rules.

Yoongi [Suga’s real name] never violated any school rules. Since it was the old era and it was a boy’s private school, the dress code and hair rules were very strict.

But he has never violated [the rules], giving excuses like he’s doing music, or any such thing. There was no place to learn music in Chilgok [Suga’s hometown]. So until he went to the music academy in the second semester, he studied very hard in the classroom as not to disturb other students.

He would stay awake until dawn to study composition. But he never violated rules with excuses like he was doing music and things like that.
