BTS Members Ring in Jimin's 24th Birthday - See Their Tweets!

Happy birthday, Jimin!

The BTS member turns 24 years old today (it’s October 13 in Korea), and his bandmates are joining the rest of the ARMY in celebrating his special day.

Jin tweeted a handwritten note (below), jokingly captioning it, “Jimin-ah, happy birthday, I wrote this for a period of three hours.” His handwritten note read simply, “Jimin, Happy Birthday! – Jin Hyung.”

Suga wrote (according to a fan translation), “Jimin-ah, I wish you a happy birthday I hope that this year, you eat lots and grow up and up.”

RM, Jungkook, J-Hope, and V also shared their birthday sentiments along with some never-before-seen pics. See them here: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5].

BTS also surprised Jimin by singing him “happy birthday” in Arabic during their recent tour stop in Riyadh, broadcasted live on VLIVE.

“The members started singing a song that I [didn’t] know, but I started kind of [lip-syncing] anyway just in case,” Jimin shared (according to a fan translator, via VLIVE). “The song sounded a bit familiar and I thought it was a New Year’s celebration song, but I thought wait, it’s a bit too early to celebrate new year’s… then I heard someone say ‘Jimin’ and I realized it was for my birthday.”

J-Hope and Becky G are putting their dance moves on display in their new music video for “Chicken Noodle Soup!”

The BTS member and the “Mayores” crooner teamed up for the epic collaboration, which they released on Friday (September 27).

Drawing on the hook from Webstar and Young B’s “Chicken Noodle Soup (Feat. AG aka The Voice of Harlem),” which was an early inspiration for him when he first started to learn dancing, J-Hope tells his story about dancing and dreams in Korean, while Becky G took part in the lyric writing in Spanish.

The project was born as both artists called “Chicken Noodle Soup” one of their favorite childhood jams, and the performance is a reinterpretation of the original track’s choreography.

Directed by Lumpens, the music video follows J-Hope and Becky G as they show off their flawless dance moves along with more than 50 dancers from regions all around the world.

BTS Asks Young People to Share Love & Kindness, Not Violence (Video)

BTS Asks Young People to Share Love & Kindness, Not Violence (Video)

BTS is doing their part to help end to violence and bullying.

The popular South Korean group and UNICEF posted a video to celebrate UN International Day of Friendship.

The video features BTS singing their hit single “Answer: Love Myself” over fictional stories of young people encountering violence, bullying, and fear in and around schools, sending a message of friendship and support.

“Our LOVE MYSELF campaign is all about encouraging every young person to find the love from within themselves and spreading that love to others,” BTS said in a press release. “We want everyone to take part in ending violence by sharing love and kindness.”

BTS‘s LOVE MYSELF campaign has raised over $2 million to help UNICEF #ENDviolence.

UNICEF is urging young people leave a kind note for someone – in real life or online – and share it for others to see.

“Children and young people have told us time and again that being treated with kindness and respect helps them to feel safe in and around school,” UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said. “Every day students face a range of violent acts, from bullying and physical attacks to corporal punishment, sexual assault and harassment online. By being kind, children and young people can show their support for each other and brighten someone’s day. We’re grateful to BTS for their continued commitment to making sure that no child is afraid to go to school.”

BTS are channeling boy band royalty!

The massively popular K-pop group, made up of members J-Hope, V, Jungkook, Jimin, Suga, Jin, and RM, made a splash during their debut performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday night (May 15).

The guys channeled The Beatles for the performance, which is fitting, since BTS’ talent and popularity have been compared to the Fab Four.

“You may have heard there’s a new musical craze sweeping the globe, these fellas are really something. They’re called BTS and people are so excited you can only call it BTS Mania,” Stephen Colbert said as he introduced the group. “These boys are from across the pond, the big one, the one with Hawaii in the middle. They really are a fine group of youngsters, in fact, you can call them the fab seven. It’s got a nice ring to it.”
