#Hobicult trends as BTS' J-Hope receives love from fans for being their 'eternal sunshine'
BTS fans are showering member J-Hope with love and appreciation on April 29 after dubbing Hobi stans as the 'Hobi Cult'.
While it may not be as widely known, J-Hope is one of the BTS members who receives a significant amount of hate. This hate began right from the group's debut and was originally directed at all three of the group's rappers, including leader RM and Suga. But while the hate towards them subsided over time, it seemed to remain where J-Hope was concerned. So much so, there was even a trend started to force him out of the group by people who had issues with everything from his looks to his vocals and even his dancing abilities.
But the ARMY has always done its best to make sure J-Hope knows he is loved, including starting the 'Hobi Cult' and joining hands with fellow Hobi stans to share their favorite things about the idol.
Some fans had no idea what the 'cult' was but were joining anyway, stating "What is #HOBICULT? But I’m in! Anything for #jhope #Hobi #Hoseok #BTS." Others used the tag to find fellow J-Hope stans, tweeting "I wanted to join the trend of expressing our love for our eternal sunshine!! it’s not very good but here’s an edit i made of hobi a few days ago! also if you love hobi follow me so we can me moots please #hobicult"
Other fans were overjoyed to finally see some Hobi love, stating "Yes honey weve been know whos the prettiest boy iss," and tweeting, "This angel deserves all the love."
A fan asked, "Whats your favorite thing about HOBI?" One stan replied, "Amazing performer, amazing person! #HOBICULT," another tweeted, "Hobi is just the sweetest guy around - what you see is wht you get," and one fan said, "[He] as a responsible & gifted adult, #J-Hope has kept his inner child alive. That's the radiance/sunshine we see & feel emanating from him. That's why he loves his fam & ARMY so freely without hesitation. To have him be as beautiful outside as he is inside is a gift to us."
Another fan shared, "This boi is the epitome of self-esteem, confidence, and self-love." And naturally, some fans responded by simply stating, "His entire existence."
But by far the most popular response was his laugh. "There's a lot of things but yk when he claps when he laughs? that," tweeted one fan, and another said, "His laugh is so contagious."
One fan stated, "The cutest thing this fandom has ever agreed on is that Hobi has a heart-shaped smile and every fan art and even official merch always shows it."
J-Hope is beloved by the fandom for being an extremely positive person and fans made sure to express their gratitude. "We love you, thank you for always being our hope," stated one fan, and another tweeted, "J-Hope is the reason for my happiness."
One fan shared, "Thank you for being the light in my darkness and I’m really grateful that the world has someone like you / please remember that we’re so proud of u and we’ll never stop loving and supporting you, not even in a million years. keep on smiling my sunshine. #HOBICULT"
Some fans also shared their favorite moments of J-Hope returning the fandom's love, tweeting "Throwback to when hobi said he isnt afraid of the rain because army is his umbrella and then sang umbrella pls hes so precious."
