In particular, the newspaper dedicated a whole page to J-Hope, calling him “Gwangju’s pride” and listing his activities and achievements.
This is because J-Hope’s hometown is none other than Gwangju where he was born and raised. Before debuting with BTS, J-Hope was known to have been a part of an underground dance team in Gwangju and have attended the Gwangju Music Academy.
What an honor to be called the pride of your hometown! Congratulations, J-Hope!
