When Jungwon (ENHYPEN) faced many difficulties after debut, what advice did RM (BTS) give him?
Being in the same company as BTS is a blessing for the new generation groups from HYBE (Big Hit Labels). They not only receive attention from the public but also have the opportunity to learn and interact directly with BTS members – who have a lot of experience in asserting themselves with music products and overcoming difficulties to gain success.
Among BTS members, leader RM is said to be extremely reliable because he is both smart and has leadership skills. The male idol has more than 8 years of experience as the leader of BTS. Now, he continues to share his secrets and sincerity with his juniors, including ENHYPEN’s leader, Jungwon.
Specifically recently on a Korean online forum, a Knet posted an article titled: ‘ARMY ㅠㅠㅠ Has everyone read this? Let’s see it ㅠㅠㅠ’. The OP reposted an interview with ENHYPEN leader Jungwon. It is known that this was during the press conference for the release of ENHYPEN’s 2nd mini-album ‘BORDER : CARNIVAL’ on April 26.
Accordingly, ENHYPEN members chose BTS as the group’s role model. At that time, member Jay explained: “We all worked for our dreams while watching BTS. We look up to them and want to be like them, We wish to have not only their achievements but attitudes as artists”.
In particular, leader Jungwon also wants to express his gratitude to RM for helping him overcome a difficult time after his debut.
“After the debut, I had a phase feeling like I was lost. RM then came to advise me on leadership. Him saying ‘leader is not someone who pulls in front of other members but someone who pushes behind the others’ resonated with me. I still remember it to this day. I would love to learn how to move forward with the members, creating chemistry between our dynamics while doing so.”
Although Jungwon only revealed one sentence of RM, this sentence was so meaningful that it touched many netizens. RM is not the kind of leader, who forces the members to do what he wants. Instead, he wants to stay behind BTS and push them forward. RM’s thought has received a lot of approval from Knets and it has made them believe that he is one of the most thoughtful and influential leaders of Kpop 3rd generation.
