It is still Yoongi Month so we are still celebrating our favorite rapper’s birthday month! It is said that whatever you do, do it with all your heart and you will never be forgotten. BTS have been doing good in their careers and personal lives as well and it is good to see that people who have been with them from the beginning never forget them. BTS have been hardworking from the beginning and their hard work has been paying off what with their Grammy nomination and performance. Ms. Kang Sun-ja, the owner of Yoojung Sikdang, where BTS used to eat almost every day for 2 years before and during their rookie days, posted a video of her celebrating Yoongi’s birthday (9th March) Last year she celebrated Jimin’s birthday and the rest of the members which she often shares on her Twitter page.
Kpop Herald: We heard BTS members came to this restaurant every day as trainees. Tell me about your memories during that time?
Kang: “The boys were very bright, respectful, friendly and well-mannered. They are just well-rounded. Not many people their age are like that. Every time we met they greeted and I thought there is something different about them.
“Their success is not just pure luck but thanks to their effort. They really put their blood and sweat into their work. At times I felt like their parents would feel for their children if they saw them. When they practiced so hard, they would come upstairs from the studio in the basement with their T-shirts and hair all covered in sweat. They would practice every day from the morning to 10 p.m., sometimes they would just practice the night away. They worked that hard.
“Now that they have reached the top, BTS members probably look back on the past I think. It’s rare for people their age to work that hard. Most people want to play, hang out with friends. It’s not easy to give everything up and focus on one thing, you know. And what their sacrifice has brought to them is 100 times better.” Read full interview
