In a recent interview with Weverse Magazine, BTS‘s dance leader J-Hope spoke a bit about how he feels when he receives the spotlight in performances.
J-Hope was asked several questions regarding dancing, one of which was, “What’s going through your mind when you’re performing, especially when the spotlight’s on you? Like when you do that attention-grabbing dance break full of slow movements in ‘Butter,’ or the solo disco dancing you did for the ‘Dynamite’ dance break at MMA 2020?”
J-Hope shared that his mindset always remains the same. He also praised his fellow members for their talents and said that he always tries to make the most out of all the given opportunities. J-Hope also humbly spoke about how he’s always willing to correct himself.
My mindset doesn’t change. When the spotlight’s on me, that’s an opportunity for me, in a way. It’s a chance for me to shine among our team and its seven amazing members, so I’m always on the lookout to make good use of such opportunities by doing my best. I shouldn’t turn down what I’ve got coming to me, and show off everything I’ve got to show. ARMY and the general public will be the judges, and if they have something to say about it, I have to accept and correct it, I think.
J-Hope also spoke about how he’s grown thanks to all the practicing and correcting he’s done!
I want to say that I developed my own type of growth for myself by repeatedly correcting and practicing and correcting and practicing. I’ve been dancing a long time, but I always feel like I could be doing more, so I put in the effort and I take pleasure in when I make something that turns out really well.
