Jimin from the group BTS expressed his feelings about becoming the first Korean singer to top the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
In a video posted on the fan community platform Weverse on April 4th, Jimin apologized for turning on LIVE in the early hours of the morning. He explained that he couldn't find the right words to express his emotions, so he decided to talk instead. Jimin expressed his gratitude towards the producers who worked with him on the album, the fans who supported him, and credited the success to the support of the BTS fandom, ARMY.
Jimin also shared how he started working on his first official solo album and talked about his low self-esteem at the time. "The album started because I wanted the members to make a song in that state," he said. Jimin expressed his appreciation towards the members of BTS, the fans, and everyone who worked hard on the album.
Jimin also mentioned a touching moment with his family. "My father just called me and said he was proud. 'Daddy, it's the first album I made,' I sang at home, and he cried because he was upset," he said.
The other members of BTS also sent congratulatory messages. Leader RM called Jimin and said, "I'm proud." J-Hope said on Weverse, "Jimin, I'm so cool and proud," and Suga said, "Park Jimin, the Billboard 'Hot 100' No. 1 singer, is so cool."
In the end, Jimin thanked everyone again and promised to work even harder in the future. "I'll try harder and do better. I'll be able to be more proud of being your singer. 'I love you,'" he said.
