I mean, just look at him and you will see the cute, adorable, and squishy persona hiding in such a sexy, hot, and manly body. He's a totally handsome guy, man!

The BTS member that is made up of 100% sexy voice, 101% sexy dance, and 0% jams (according to J-hope and RM).

2. He's Got a Perfect Body
Jimin's face looks so pure and innocent, but don't let his angelic face deceive you! While it's true that he has a lot of knowledge about skin care (just look at how beautiful his porcelain skin is), we cannot deny the fact that it's not just face beauty that attracts us to our dear Chimchim. He might have that face of an angel, but his body is really manly. Among all the Bangtan members, he is known for his impressive abs and beautiful muscles. His frame is as pretty as a sculpture and we can see his well-built body is perfectly proportioned. Even Jin revealed that when he first met Jimin, he was amazed by his beautiful body—a perfection that a young man cannot have unless it's a blessing. But it's not just Jin who was wowed by Jimin's physique. Many fan girls and even K-Pop artists are envious of his attractive body!
When Jungkook tried to describe his muscular hyung, it seems like it matched Jimin's favorite character in Avengers: The Hulk. He said that when his hyung was created, he had “One spoon of small eyes, one spoon of abs, a guy it’s his thighs now, thighs...“ It's incredibly amazing how he had a well-built body from head to toe! Even Rap Monster compared him to Geodude, the muscular Pokemon!
3. He Is 101% Sexy When Dancing
Besides his handsome face and attractive body, another thing that will turn you on about Jimin is his talent in dancing. Like a true dancing machine, he doesn't know how to stop making the girls' hearts flutter with his killer hip waves together with the music. His powerful dance performances is one of the best things to see on stage and in music videos. Whether it's a hardcore hip-hop music or a sexy one just like his intro in Blood, Sweat, and Tears, he will definitely make your jaw drops with his amazing dance skills!
It is also revealed that he likes to practice whenever he has free time. His passion for dancing was developed since his early high school days. In the episode of New Yang and Nam Show on February 23, 2017, a video was shown showing a young Jimin dancing passionately on the floor while being half-naked. Back then, he was one of the rare male top students in the modern dance department of Busan Arts High School. Below is the video of a freshman Jimin dancing in contemporary during his high school days.
Isn't he amazing? Jimin as the young, talented, and passionate dance student was cherished so much by his teacher that she even sent a video message to his grown-up student. Though he is now a popular male idol in the K-Pop industry, Teacher Kim Do Kyung remembered him so well during his early high school days. She even shared a sweet story about Jimin who was always enthusiastic and eager to learn about dancing. She said in the video:
“Hello, I am Kim Do Kyung, the director of Core Dance Academy, and I taught modern dance to Jimin. During class, Jimin used to ask “How do you do this move? How do you do those moves?” And I would explain, “These muscles will start developing if you do this move, so you have to do it this way.” The next day, he would come and tell me, “I practiced those moves a lot and now my muscles are nicely toned!” and he would even take his shirt off to show me. Jimin, always take care of your health, and fighting!”
Did that story made you cringe? Worry not, because we can almost imagine a cute and innocent mochi Jimin being proud of his growing muscles to his seonsaengnim!
4. 'Jeon Jungkook!'
Almost every Army knows how Jimin usually sticks with the golden maknae, Jungkook. He is always playful and clingy around their big baby boy, which is why many fans started to ship them and call them 'Jikook'. But it seems like Jungkook likes to tease Jimin more. In the Rookie King episode of BTS, Jimin opened his heart about his true feelings to the youngest member.
Standing at the rooftop of the building, he shouted from the top of his lungs, "Jeon Jungkook!" well, unfortunately, not to express his love for him, but to tell him how it hurts his pride when Jungkook teases him about his height and strokes his head like a little kid! He even emphasized that he is two years older than him and he has eaten 2,130 more bowls of rice! But the maknae is so savage to him, and Jungkook denied all those accusations, saying "When did that happen?" Upon hearing those words, he was about to explode in frustration because he hadn't expected that Jungkook would play innocent! He looked so upset (in a funny way) while he tried to tell everyone that he is not short, and in fact, he said his difference with Suga is just 1 cm. Poor Jiminie, he doesn't like it when he's being treated like a kid. He's too cute to handle!
But even though he is always teased by the youngest, Jungkook told Jimin that he likes to tease him because he is very friendly, and he likes his hyung so much. Their cute and funny friendship may have been influenced by how Jimin adores his real-life little brother so much. Yes, he has a younger brother named Park Jihyun who is the same age with Jungkook. It was revealed that he is very close to his cute and kind-hearted dongsaeng. Maybe that's the reason why he likes Jungkook so much and he likes to attach himself to him like a loving brother. He probably remembers his younger brother whenever he sees our golden youngest that's why he likes to express his love for him as a big brother!
5. The Chimchim Nickname Is Precious
Apart from his cute name, he is also called 'Jiminie' and 'Chimchim' by other members. The 'Jiminie' nickname sounds pretty easy to understand, since it is a nickname of endearment from his name. But Chimchim sounds totally different, and you might ask, how, why, and where did he get that nickname?
The Chimchim thing started during BTS' American Hustle Life era, when he and his hip hop tutor Tony Jones became good friends in America. While learning how to be a sensational hip hop idol, Jimin became super friends with Tony, that he started to call him 'Jim Jim' which sounded like 'Chim Chim'. Pretty cute, isn't it? #Jony is real!
In an interview with Tony, he expressed how he likes Jimin so much. He said, "I love Jimin (as a brother!) I have no idea how we became so close. I really like his character and demeanor. I think I see some of myself in ChimChim (which was a completely random, made up nickname) when I was younger. He really knows how to connect with the ladies and really gets what “putting on a show” means. He will forever be my little brother for life." Awww, Tony and Jimin's friendship is just... gold!
6. He Does the Weirdest and Craziest Things with V
Of all the other members of BTS, Jimin does the craziest, weirdest, funniest, and most random, dorky things with his same-age brother, V. Whenever they are together, they are always playful just like twin brothers. They like to tease other members, especially their older brothers and the youngest. His bright personality matches well with that of V's 4D, so they make the best pranks and the most annoying (for the other members) yet cute moments together. Just look at how cute they are while comparing the tiny pinky finger of Jimin to that long, slender, and elegant pinky of V! Oh please bless these two precious souls.
The two boys are incredibly close to each other, and sometimes fans ship them and call them 'Vmin/Taemin', the pair who doesn't know what space means. But together, these two are very good friends and of course, there's no doubt that the they both love and care for each other like a family. In fact, V gave Jimin a very expensive present this year. It was a Gucci white skull-print sweatshirt that costs $1,100 USD! (Well, we all know how V is such a Gucci enthusiast, so that's kind of expected) That sweatshirt is actually a design for female, but we don't know if Taehyung bought it for Jimin just to make fun, but we're sure that the two shares a very good relationship. In fact, whenever Taehyung has problems, he usually shares it with Jimin, together with his eomma Jin.
There are times when Jimin and Taehyung are the most energetic among all the members. They are the same-age duo from the trio maknae line, together with Jungkook. But sometimes, even the youngest became the victim of their dorky sides, along with the older brothers! Watch the video below to see how our 95-liner duo played with J-hope and how it ended.
After watching the video above, I personally felt that Jimin and Taehyung have to be guests on Running Man (a popular game-show in Korea) together with the other BTS members. Jimin's betrayal to J-hope is already a huge qualification and Taehyung's quick and smart survival senses is just, wow. That idea alone is fun and exciting to imagine! I personally look forward to his betrayal senses together with Lee Kwang-soo and how he will outsmart the other Running Man and Bangtan members!
7. He Is Always Praised for Being Too Kind
Not only is his visuals are angelic, but Jimin is also a kind person according to the other members. All of them agreed that Jimin is actually a nice member, and the even revealed how he felt so sorry for kicking the other members at their backs during their 'No More Dream' performance.
Jimin himself believed that he is a timid person. He thinks that his personality is bright, and is aware how he likes to smile. But behind those smiles lies the competitive and passionate Park Jimin who hates losing and sometimes loses his temper. But still, the bottom line is he is a pure (but somehow pervert) guy who likes cute things.
This is how his Bangtan brothers describe him:
- The BTS' mother, Jin described him as a very cute person. He usually “comes at you really cutely. It’s like I'm being attacked by a puppy. I can’t refuse requests because he’s too nice.”
- The intelligent leader, Rap Monster thinks of Jimin as someone who is “basically kind and gentle. He is very considerate. He isn’t as timid as you would think. He likes clothes and style (same with me). But even though he responds well, there are many times where he doesn’t actually do it. He is quite stubborn.”
- The swag master Suga likes how Jimin is a very obedient person. According to him, he “follows the hyungs’ words well.”
- The bright J-hope believed his younger brother is “kind, listens to his hyungs well, has a lot of greed, and has a personality where he makes sure to do his part, and he has a really good personality where he likes me the most and his faith towards me is very strong~~ ”
- His handsome 95-liner brother, V, described him as a cute person, but "the amount of him losing his temper is excessive." Nevertheless, "he’s kind and a friend that’s trustworthy. I talk to him the most, and if I have any worries, he’s the friend that I tell it first to.”
- The golden maknae Jungkook said that Jimin is really an effort-type person "along with being a triple blood-type A, timid, shameless, and hates losing.”
8. He Is Confident When Dressing Up as a Girl
While Jimin thinks that his eyes are the most charming part of his face, he cannot deny that he also feel confident about cross-dressing as a pretty girl. There was a time when Jimin wore a hot pink maid outfit, exposing his muscular yet beautiful legs. He also had a cute pair of pink ruffles headband on top of his head, which makes him look so girly! Other boys would definitely feel embarrassed while wearing a girls' outfit (remember Suga when he wore a maid's outfit in a cafe, he said hip hop is dead because he felt so embarrassed and shy). But our pretty Jimin is always confident!
He personally said that when everyone sees their own image (in girls’ clothes), they feel embarrassed. But he doesn't feel the same. In fact, he believes that every time he dresses as a girl, he’s pretty. He also revealed how he's been used to this confidence since his early school days. He said, “At my school festival, I wore a female hanbok and got first place.”
9. The Cutest 'Excuse Me' Ever
There's no doubt about Bangtan being the best English speaker. If J-hope is famous for his "I hate snakeu" line, V with his "sheet down", Jin with "stahb it", then Jimin's famous English line is the cringe-worthy "Excuse me," which was featured during their American Hustle Life days! I never thought that this common phrase would be the cutest when Jimin said it in front of the cam, with his smiley eyes and sweet, happy face! Watch the video below to see it.
10. Jimin, You Got Yes Jams
Almost everyone knows that "Jimin, you got no jams" phrase, but as we get to know him, we are now convinced that Jimin is not really a jam-less person. He is a very bright person, a talented dancer, an amazing vocalist, and a sexy hottie with a kind heart and sweet personality. He is like an innocent puppy, but at times he can be a playful person as well. Just don't listen to Rap Monster and J-hope, we all know the truth that our precious Jimin has a lot of jams!
