I’ll support you on too, hyung. You’ve worked hard.
In a recent interview with Ten Asia, Ha Sungwoon was asked about his role models, BTS. He has known BTS since before they debuted back in 2013, and he admires how hard they worked to get to where they are today.
I’ve known the team since before they debuted. So, I personally know that it was not luck but their endeavors and studies that made them rise to stardom. It’s really amazing and I admire them.

Jimin is someone he looks up to professionally, but Ha Sungwoon also admires him as a friend.
The member I became close to is Jimin. We became closer since our personalities are very similar and we’re of the same nature. He’s someone who is precious to me and who I’m thankful for. Not only do I look up to him as a senior, he also takes care of me personally, making me feel his big heart.

Fans hope to see more interactions between these two in the near future!
