Park Jimin- BTS (Beyond The Scene)
BTS, formerly known as Bangtan Sonyeondan(Bulletproof Boyscout), now goes by the name Beyond The Scene. Well, they need no introduction. Even if you are not a fan, who is called the ‘Army,’ you cannot go without seeing or hearing them once these days.
The seven-member South Korean boy band set out to the world with their music on June 13, 2013. They first made their debut in South Korea with the single “No More Dream.” Led by the leader, RM(Kim Namjoon), the other members include Jin(Kim Seokjin), Suga(min Yoongi), J-Hope(Jung Hoseok), Park Jimin, V(Kim Taehyung), and Jungkook( Jeon Jeongkook).
Formerly a hip-hop group, their music continued to grow and evolve in the following years. As of now, the group is regarded one of the versatile groups that cover every genre from neo-retro, pop, Latin pop, rap, ballad, EDM, and more.
But what makes them different from the rest of the boy band is their unique ability to blend in the group while still retaining their individuality. It might be the reason why each member is able to showcase their talent without being overshadowed.
Since their debut, the group has released over six mini-albums, two unique package album, and two single albums. Moreover, they have three full-length albums under their names that include Dark & Wild, Wings, Love Yourself: Tear, and Map of the Soul 7. The latter is set to release this year on February 23. You can watch the single ‘Black Swan’ right here.
However, even before the release, their new album has sold over 4 million copies to date. Like many Army’s predicted, this album is also going to make history in the music scene all over the globe. Fingers Crossed.
Park Jimin: “I’m Your Calico Cat”- Serendipity

Both of his songs have surpassed over a million streams on Spotify, becoming the first K-pop solo to do so after Psy‘s Gentleman. Likewise, in early 2018, Jimin dropped his new song titled ‘Promise,’ which is soft and less accompanied compared to the other two songs.
BTS’s Impact and Global Projects
Many might not know this, but BTS did not get tremendous love and support overnight. They had to go through many hurdles as a group and individual before dominating the World Music Scene.
Furthermore, the group had come a long way from having only 35 fans on their first fan meeting to now selling out 82,000 capacity Wembley Stadium. If you think about it, selling out concerts, filled with people of various ethnicities and nationalities, singing the language they barely know, is a feat on its own.
No one had even predicted a small boy band from South Korea would sell out stadium worldwide until BTS did. Their global reach and impact have made BTS the favorite of many international projects. One of them is United Nations Speak Yourself campaign, where BTS spoke about the project at their 73rd General Assembly.
Even more, they were awarded ‘Letter of Appreciation’ from The South Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism in October 2019.

Personal Life: Dating, Girlfriend, and Rumors
When talking about idol or celebrity, we cannot leave their private life out of it. With recognition and popularity, each member has become a hot topic in the media. However, because of this same reason, none of the members has spoken about their love life that includes Park Jimin too.
One of the other factors can be the toxic media of South Korea. Even when the idol does expose their relationship in public, they instantly became the target of media, who then continues thrashing them even more.
Luckily, neither Park Jimin nor the other members of BTS have gone through such a situation, And we wish they never do in the future either. Besides being linked with few stars in the music industry, Jimin has not been in a serious relationship until now.
Social Media Presence
Sadly, even after being the global star, Park Jimin does not have his own Instagram or any social media accounts.
