BTS’s beating heart, a distinct mentality and personality that captivated the hearts of his fans around the world, today BTS leader celebrates his 26th birthday, among millions of lovers and fans around the world who launched his hashtag, #NamjoonDay.
Who Is NamJoon ?
Kim Namjoon born September 12, 1994 in Dongjak-gu, South Korea , better known by his stage name RM (formerly Rap Monster), is a South Korean rapper, songwriter, and record producer.
He is the leader of the South Korean boy group BTS. In 2015, he released his first solo mixtape, RM.
In October 2018, his second mixtape, Mono, was the highest charting album by a Korean soloist on the Billboard 200 chart, having peaked at 26.
He has recorded with artists such as Wale, Younha, Warren G, Gaeko, Krizz Kaliko, MFBTY, Fall Out Boy, Primary, and Lil Nas X.
As a student, he actively wrote poetry and often received awards for his writings.
He posted his work to an online poetry website for roughly one year, where he received moderate attention.
In 2007, as a first year middle school student, RM began rapping in local amateur hip-hop circles, creating his first self-composed recording for the first time using the program Adobe Audition.
He later participated in his first concert in 2008.
His parents were strongly opposed to his interest in a musical career due to his academic achievements, and initially RM decided to set music aside to focus on his studies. In order to convince his mother to allow him to be a rapper, he asked her if “she wanted to have a son who was a first-place rapper, or a 5,000th-place student”.
The journey of pursuit of the dream turned into reality.
Many rumors circulated about him, Namjoon’s wife, but the truth is that Namjoon is still single and his personal life is closed and there is not much information about her.
“if you can’t respect, don’t even open your mouth”
“I believe that there’s no improvement if you have an inferiority complex and victim mentality.”
“Maybe I made a mistake yesterday, but yesterday’s me is still me. I am who I am today, with all my faults. Tomorrow I might be a tiny bit wiser, and that’s me, too. These faults and mistakes are what I am, making up the brightest stars in the constellation of my life. I have come to love myself for who I was, who I am, and who I hope to become.”
“Why is there no opposite word of loneliness? Could it be because people, until they die, have no moments of not being lonely?”
“Happiness is not something that you have to achieve. You can still feel happy during the process of achieving something”
“I know they talk like you’re too naive ~ you’re too young but eventually fools change the world.”
“No one is born ugly, we’re just born in a judgemental society.”
