The idol is now ready to go on a new journey as a solo artist, starting with a solo stage at MAMA.
Recent statements from CJ ENM prior to the 2022 “Mnet Music Awards” (MAMA) announced that J-Hope is appearing at the event.
The statement from Yoon Shin-hye went as follows, “J-Hope was the first BTS member to release a solo album and was praised for showcasing his inner story in the album. J-Hope’s solo stage will be released for the first time in this MAMA.”
The representative added, “I think BTS’ stage at ‘MAMA’ will always remain a legend, but J-Hope is working hard to prepare a performance to make J-Hope’s solo stage a history as well.”
The theme for J-Hope’s performance is ‘I am your hope’. CP Yoon said, “Please don’t miss J-Hope’s story of hope through the stage,” raising expectations.
With his first solo performance right around the corners, fans are having a nostalgic trip to review his entire personal journey in pursuit of dancing.
At a young age, J-Hope was a mischievous student and was called the alley boss. He pulled all sort of stunts, such as climbing over a wall because his school did not have a canteen. However, he stopped doing so in highschool, confessing, “I couldn’t because my father was a teacher at the same school in high school.”
In addition, J-Hope said in the past VLIVE, “I was sincere in dancing, so during the exam period during school days, I showed several dances without backup to get recognition from my father instead of studying. He gave me permission to watch Music Bank,” drawing attention.
Despite his difficult childhood and intensive training in the past, J-Hope was reborn as an extraordinary star and is just about to start on a new adventure as a solo artist.
