BTS has finally broken the records with 'Proof' as well as its lead single 'Yet To Come' which was released with a music video on June 10. Now, three days since, the boy group is celebrating its ninth anniversary since its debut. When BTS made its debut in the music industry back in 2013, each member of the Big Hit Entertainment (now Big Hit Music/HYBE) boy group adapted to a role that was set for them and like the other BTS members' respective roles like being the oldest, youngest, leader, etc. of BTS, J-Hope was called the sunshine of the group due to his chirpy personality.

Fans who have seen J-Hope (Jung Hoseok/Hobi) over the years can attest that the always cheerful rapper probably does not have good days throughout the year but puts on a happy face only for viewers. In an interview with BTS' label HYBE's fanbase platform Weverse, the 'Hopeworld' singer got candid about the hardships he often faces and how he overcomes them with his cheery attitude. All HYBE groups usually release an interview with the platform Weverse Magazine following their comeback or debut and now one for BTS' 'Proof' has been released on the platform, starting with J-Hope.

J-Hope teases new music showing his raw and dark side 

In his interview that was released with Weverse Magazine on June 13, BTS' J-Hope was asked questions about his recent comeback with the boy group's first anthology album 'Proof' as well as questions about J-Hope's personal life. In one particular question, the magazine asks J-Hope about how he has progressively changed as an individual artist since he first debuted with BTS. The rapper said, "I often present myself with a sunny demeanor. So I have a strong desire to display a different side of me. I personally challenged myself to do that in my current projects. I wanted to show an extremely dark, raw side."

The rapper explained that over his last few years in the K-pop industry, the stories he has narrated with his solo music have been extremely limited where he only showed fans the side of him that was already seen by them publicly through his behavior. J-Hope clarified that if he wants to show fans the new changes that have taken place in his life over the years, he would have to adapt and his songs will have to be darker. He says, "It’s something I’ve never done before, so I was excited to try something new. I was heavily influenced by what my heart was telling me, and that’s why I decided to give it a try."

J-Hope stated, "I want to show my own self." He added, "I wanted to look back on things, like how I’ve lived and the kind of emotional shadow my hidden side casts. You’ll understand when these songs come out later, but if I was going to discuss these things, I couldn’t always be light about it. That’s why I edged a little closer to a darker place, which I think allowed me to open up about my life story completely." On the other hand, J-Hope will be headlining his first solo event aside from BTS' group ventures for the American music festival Lollapalooza in August 2022.

One fan said, "So it won’t exactly be a “Hope World 2”… oh, I can’t wait to see what his next mixtape will be and what sides he chooses to show and express, and how." One fan manifested, "HOPE WORLD 2 IS F*KING COMING."
