In the VLIVE, Jimin acknowledged J-Hope’s strength in being the first member to take on the new challenge.

What made Jimin decide to fly to see J-Hope perform at Lollapalooza 2022

J-Hope released his album Jack In The Box on July 15. In April, BTS put on Permission to Dance On Stage – Las Vegas concerts.

“It must have been lonely. Because we’ve been in the group so long. And you are the first one who tried this,” the BTS singer said.

“Why I came here is that I’m sure all the other members wanted to come. When we were in the U.S. he played the song that he made. As soon as I heard that song, I thought ‘I should go,’” Jimin said.

During the VLIVE, Jimin revealed that he decided to attend Lollapalooza after J-Hope played his solo music for Jimin while they were in Las Vegas for BTS’ concerts.

“Yes,” Jimin answered.

“In Vegas?” J-Hope asked.
