Aside from their infectious songs, BTS is also known for their impeccable style. In a new interview with GQ, the septet revealed who their biggest style heroes are–and those who inspired them are pretty diverse.
While Jungkook takes style notes from bandmate RM, RM from painters Whanki Kim and Hyong Keun Yun and V from his father, J-Hope shared a more unusual source for inspiration: The beloved dog Snoopy from the Peanuts series.
“He gives me a fun way to express myself,” he said. “I own Snoopy clothes and pajamas. I think you should try everything you want. That way, you get to understand what works and doesn’t work for you and this will build your own style.”
Jin agreed with that sentiment, crowning himself as his biggest style hero. “I think the key is to not stress or feel pressured about it,” he explained. “Wear what you want and what feels comfortable. If you wake up and see an outfit you like, put it on! It’s good to take it easy. Do what you like. Don’t worry about what other people might think. What’s important is what you want. Other people don’t care about what you wear as much as you may think. Wear what makes you comfortable and happy.”
For Jimin, the BTS ARMY makes him feel most confident. “It’s because I think ARMY inspires me in every aspect of my life. It’s because they’re my reason for life,” he gushed. “I think it’s like a mirror that can reflect me in a light or in depth way…I tried hard to become as friendly, sensitive and warm as they are. I think you should have confidence. Trust that you are already as stylish and amazing as the heroes you are inspired by.”
