BTS‘s J-Hope always knows exactly what to say to ARMY! After making an appearance on IU‘s Palette, he had some “explaining” to do on Weverse.
He had a moment where he couldn’t decide how to address IU, combining the words noona (a term loosely translated as “older sister” that is used for a woman older than a man) and sunbae-nim (meaning “senior). He even considered combining the terms to create a new word, noo-nim!
In the end, he took the more casual route and addressed her as noona, which ARMY found extra endearing.
Noona‘s words are totally right!

He continued the sweet words on social media when he posted some Instagram photos of his time on the show.
Thank you noona 🏻
Naturally, an ARMY couldn’t help but feel a little bit jealous at the cute interactions between the two idols!
‘Noo’…’noona’…I’m gonna cry a little..
However, it didn’t take long for J-Hope to make it up to her by getting a little flirty!
ㅠㅠ What’s going on, noona..🏻
You can always count on Hobi to stay on your good side — and don’t worry, he’s got younger ARMY covered, too!
In another post, a fan younger than J-Hope wanted to heart the endearing words — and she was in for a surprise of her own!
- ARMY: “‘Noona…!’ I want to hear it too..🥲 ( I’m too young to hear it..🤣”
- JH: “Then thank you, my dongsaeng*😙” [T/N: Term of endearment used for someone younger.]
Whether you’re an older ARMY or a younger ARMY, J-Hope will always be there to melt your heart with some charming words!
