Can you imagine BTS without J-Hope? He left the band and the company before the debut. Though the band was not famous back then but hearing this news even after the band's success shook our hearts. What did actually happen? Watch the video below!
BTS debuted under the management company Big Hit Entertainment in June 2013. The rapper and dance leader of the group, J-Hope shared a heartbreaking story of leaving the group with the fans. We felt like crying at his shocking confession. There can never be a BTS without J-Hope!
While talking in one of the episodes of Burn the Stage, J-Hope talked about the incident of leaving the company when he was a trainee. He revealed that he wasn't supposed to debut with the band.
Though he didn't address the reason himself, but it was due to the poor condition of the company. Big Hit was near bankruptcy at that time so seeing the situation, he made a decision of leaving the label.
Obviously, everyone has a right to secure their future. But can you believe this? BTS without our brightest sunshine, J-Hope! We simply can't.
As Jungkook got to know about his decision, our precious Kookie cried a lot. What could he even do? He was only 13 years old at that time!
But luckily, our best leader RM stepped up and talked to the company to bring J-Hope back.
I told them we needed Jung Hoseok (J-Hope’s real name). We need Jung Hoseok, we can’t make it without him. I worked really hard to convince them.
Big thanks to you, RM. We don't know what would have happened if you hadn't stood up for him!
Fortunately, at the trust and love of the members, J-Hope changed his mind and decided to rejoin the team.
He said: Ah really, back then… I came back because I trusted you guys. We worked together for a long time… it’s because the members were there.
We are again sighing in relief that he joined BTS, and we got gifted with such an amazing artist! This incident made us extremely sad but as we see him happy with the members, our heart blooms with happiness.
