BTS: J-Hope Reveals He Once Threw a Banana at Jungkook When They Were Fighting
The members of BTS often present themselves as a united front. However, they are still different people at the end of the day, which means it’s not uncommon for conflicts to arise in the group.
One particular fight that happened was between J-Hope and Jungkook. J-Hope even got so so mad that he threw a banana at Jungkook.
BTS has talked about the members fighting with each other
BTS has made it no secret that they sometimes have conflicts in the group. In fact, when the members first lived together, they found themselves disagreeing on many things.
“There was a time when we fought each other quite a bit because we all came from different backgrounds and our personalities were so different,” J-Hope said in a 2019 interview with Paper Magazine.
He shared that they overcame this by talking a lot and trying to understand each other, saying, “we were able to overcome that after frequently talking to each other and living together for a long time. We now know what each of us are thinking just by looking at each other.”
“Everyone gathers together,” RM shared. “It’s like an agora in ancient Greece. We gather and we ask: ‘What happened?’”
J-Hope and Jungkook once fought over bananas
An example of one such conflict the members used to get into happened between J-Hope and Jungkook. During a recent appearance on the Korean show You Quiz On the Block, the pair revealed they fought over bananas.
Jungkook explained that in the early days of their career, he once received a set of fruits from fans. The members decided to eat those fruits, but Jungkook wanted them to stop.
“So I told them to stop eating [the fruits] because they were for me,” he said. “The members got annoyed. At that moment, J-Hope was eating a banana… He spit it out and–“
“I threw it at Jungkook,” J-Hope continued.
Fortunately, the two of them are able to laugh about it now. J-Hope also admitted that he was young at the time, and he feels apologetic about some of his actions then.
V and Jimin apparently fight a lot in the group
J-Hope and Jungkook sometimes clash, but they do not seem to fight as much in BTS. The pair that seems to collide the most is V and Jimin.
Despite being the same age and going to the same school together, V and Jimin used to fight frequently. During a live stream in 2020, Jimin revealed that it didn’t take much to get them to bicker. For example, he would get mad if he was watching his diet and V was eating next to him. They also had arguments if one person woke up late.
They eventually learned to understand each other after talking a lot together.
“When we have a hard time, we talked a lot with each other,” Jimin said. “It took a long time for us to change… maybe about 4 and a half years since our debut. Since then, whenever we say something like ‘Why don’t you do it like this?’, we started responding with ‘Okay.’ At some point, we started doing that so naturally. We started saying ‘sorry’ or ‘thank you’ to each other.”
