BTS’s J-Hope doesn’t want to “settle” for anything in his life

Since their debut in 2013, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook have accomplished a lot as BTS. By speaking with Weverse Magazine, J-Hope revealed that even though he has achieved a lot of great things as a member of BTS, he still wants to go higher.

“Uh…I’m – what should I say – not the kind of person to be content with life as it is.” I could just go on living the way I am and doing what I want with my life, but I honestly don’t know. So many amazing things have already happened, but I want to go further, as an individual and as a member of BTS,” J-Hope told Weverse Magazine.

“A thought came to me one day: Have I been challenging myself lately? Apart from making songs or dancing? But the answer was no. So I decided to challenge myself and try some things, including studying English. It’s still tough and I have a long way to go, but I’m doing my best given our current schedule.

J-Hope wants BTS’s music to ‘grow’ even more

Over the years, BTS has steadily gained traction around the world. These days, the septet is selling out stadiums, dominating the music charts and easily breaking YouTube records. For the future, J-Hope wants to “develop” the group’s “music” globally.

The BTS rapper told Weverse Magazine:

“I think my next personal step is to expand our music globally. I’ve been doing some self-reflection lately and there’s a lot I want to do. I also have many dreams. Coming this far with the band, seeing the other pop artists we’ve competed with on the Billboard charts, really left an impression on me, and now I’m more serious about wanting to express something. So, for example, I dream of developing our music on a global scale since the environment to have a good synergy with foreign artists has already been built.

The BTS rapper focuses on his “next steps”

One of the things J-Hope told Weverse Magazine he wanted to work on was studying English. Later in the interview, the rapper shared that this goal might be difficult since he is so busy with BTS activities.

I think it’s a channel of communication I can open that will open up more possibilities in my life. But it might end up being difficult to continue studying with our current schedule (laughs) so even if I say I’m going to do it, I might not be able to do it,” he said.

For the most part, J-Hope has acknowledged that making music and performing are his top priorities, but he still has his sights set on his “next steps.”

“Right now, I’m trying to make music for music’s sake, challenging myself with performance-for-performance, and personally trying out for BTS. And I’m working hard to figure out what I need to do for my next steps,” J-Hope shared with Weverse Magazine.
