How Did Jimin From BTS Get the Scar Above His Eye?

Even K-pop idols have scars that tell stories. That includes members of BTS, like two members of the Maknae line, Jungkook and Jimin, who have small, almost unnoticeable scars on their faces. Here’s what some fans speculate about these singers in the award-winning boy band.

Jimin is a dancer and a black belt in taekwondo

He’s a talented singer and BTS’ resident Prince Charming. However, there are plenty of sides to this K-pop performer. Before he joined the group, Park Jimin studied modern dance in college, even enrolling in Hanyang Cyber University along with other members of this K-pop group. 

Jimin and Jungkook also studied martial arts, with Jimin working his way up to a black belt. However, when this performer was younger, there was one incident that caused him to need 8 stitches.

This BTS member has a scar above his eye from a ‘childhood accident’

His hair is always perfect and his outfits are always iconic. However, some fans noticed that Jimin has one eye area slightly larger than the other. Jimin shared that he has a scar on his right eyelid. Sometimes it causes his right eye to swell, although it’s not really noticeable. 

According to Koreaboo, “The scar comes from a childhood accident when he smashed into a toilet as a young boy. Jimin ended up with an open wound that needed 8 sutures to close up. While the scar used to bother him, Jimin shared that he has come to embrace it once ARMYs began seeing it as an endearing trait of his.”

Jimin is not alone in having scars, though. Reportedly, Jungkook has a scar across his cheek from a childhood fight with his brother over using the computer. According to Quora, Suga has a scar on his ear, although he hasn’t directly addressed how it got there.

Is Suga’s Agust D scar from the ‘Daechwita’ music video real?

For the dark “Daechwita” music video and this new era of his alter-ego, Suga sported a scar across his eye. He had this red mark when performing as the two main characters of this music video, the king and the rebel. What was the reasoning behind this eye scar?

“Nothing special really,” Suga said during one interview. “I just wanted it to be shocking when I lifted my face. That’s all. I wanted there to be a contrast with the set. Those kind of… I wanted those watching to go ‘wow!’”

The “Dynamite” music video is now available on YouTube. Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
