BTS members Jimin, Jungkook, RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jin and V enjoy great popularity. The members are loved by the masses. Talking about Jimin, in particular, he is multi-talented like the other members and has proved it several times. ChimChim is not only good at singing, but is also popularly known for his dance. Undoubtedly, Jimin is one of the best male dancers in K-Pop. However, did you know there was a time when his teacher from his school in Busan didn't support his ambition of becoming a K-Pop Idol?
For the uninitiated, Jimin was a student of Busan High School of Art when he auditioned for Big Hit Entertainment, now known as HYBE. In 2019, Jimin's homeroom teacher, addressed as Mr Lee in a report by Koreaboo, spoke to Korea Now and revealed that he was opposed to the idea because he felt it was easy to dream but not so easy to succeed.
“To be honest, I opposed at first because that job, being an idol, it’s easy to dream about, but definitely not easy to succeed. So when he told me he is taking an audition for Producer Bang Si Hyuk, I told Jimin this is his last chance. After this audition, I told him you have to choose your path on becoming an idol or a modern dancer. But on that day, he passed the audition,” he said. However, when Jimin got selected, his teacher believed the singer had potential.

Besides his audition, Lee also revealed that Jimin performed at his wedding. Recalling that time, he said, "“When he was in the tenth grade, he and his classmates did a surprise celebration at my wedding. I still remember Jimin singing and dancing at the same time with a mic in his hand, but he didn’t even get tired. People told me they felt like they weren’t at a wedding, but at a musical show."
It has been over eight years since Jimin debuted with BTS. The singer and his fellow members are among the most popular K-Pop Idols today.
