In a recent interview with Weverse Magazine, BTS‘s Jin shared the thing he would change regarding “Permission to Dance.”
When asked in what ways he’s gotten better, Jin spoke a bit about how his dancing has improved since he was younger. He also spoke about how happy he was when J-Hope, BTS’s dance leader, praised him for his improvement!
Q: In what ways have you gotten better?
Jin: When I first started this job, I practiced according to the staff’s directions, and even now in the case of dancing I’m still striving to follow along, but it takes me less time to adjust than it used to. When I review after practice, I can see how it’s going and what I need to do. It takes a little less time to line myself up with the beat than before, and I think I’ve become able to refine it a bit better. I was also happy this time around when Hobi told me my dancing really improved.
He was then asked how he felt when performing “Permission to Dance,” and Jin humbly shared that he wished he had more time to prepare. When BTS was getting ready for “Permission to Dance,” they were also busy with “Butter” promotions, so they were on a tight schedule.
Q: How was performing for ‘Permission to Dance’?
Jin: I really like the song, but when we perform it, I wish I’d had more time to prepare. We had a comeback in May with ‘Butter’ and then a fan meeting concert in June, so we got ready for ‘Permission to Dance’ at the same time we were filming performances of ‘Butter.’ We didn’t have anything else we had to work on before ‘Butter’ so we had plenty of time to practice it, but we had to practice ‘Permission to Dance’ and get ready for the fan meeting simultaneously. Time’s always tight, but I think I could’ve done even better if I could’ve taken a little more time. I wish I had had more time to put a little more effort in.
While Jin might have felt this way, ARMYs (BTS’s fandom) felt that he did a fantastic job in “Permission to Dance!”
