“Zootopia” Co-Director Invites BTS’s Jimin To Work With Him
BTS‘s Jimin just added another talent to his repertoire: voice acting!
In Episode 109 of Run BTS!, the members tried their hand (or rather, their voice) at dubbing scenes from The Lion King, Toy Story, and Zootopia.
For Zootopia, Jimin played Judy Hopps, a bunny cop who is determined to prove herself in the field. After teaming up with Nick Wilde, a con-artist fox, to solve a case, she finds herself being bored to death at a DMV run by sloths.
Jimin perfectly captured Judy’s cheerful personality and total frustration, blowing BTS and their voice acting coach away with his recording.
They weren’t the only ones who loved it! Thanks to fans, Jared Bush, Zootopia’s co-director and co-screenwriter, heard Jimin’s “perfect” read.
Hello @thejaredbush , here is clip of Global Artist PARK JIMIN from Korean Boy-Group @BTS_twt doing voice-over for Zootopia character Judy. He did voice-over in Korean language delivering exact weight Judy's character holds. Hope you see this. Thank you ????pic.twitter.com/Umc0LKn32S
