Just a few of the BTS members earned nicknames from followers

RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook are fairly totally different. It’s what they do collectively that makes BTS so particular although. Since their debut, these performers have usually used stage names when releasing music with BTS. 

Aside from their stage names, these performers earned different nicknames from their fanbases and from one another. Suga earned the nickname Lil’ Meow Meow for his candy and sort aspect that he usually reveals with followers. 

The oldest member of the group, Jin, earned the nickname “Worldwide Funny Guy,” for all of the jokes he makes with the opposite members. One of Jimin’s nicknames, except for “Chimmy,” has to do with meals.

James Corden is Papa Mochi

Jimin’s “Mochi” is a reasonably well-known nickname, even talked about throughout BTS’ Carpool Karaoke. Corden requested the Ok-pop group about their nicknames, given to them by followers. V shared that he’s nicknamed “Good Boy” and Jin is “WWH” which stans for “Worldwide Handsome.”  

Corden talked about that Jimin is typically referred to as “Mochi” by followers and the boys burst out laughing. After some clarification from RM concerning what a Mochi is, Jimin grew to become the Baby Mochi to James Corden’s Papa Mochi.

“Mochi’s like ice cream inside, rice on the outside — Mochi,” James Corden mentioned, pointing to Jimin. Jimin responded, saying, “You’re Papa Mochi. I miss you, Papa!”

Since then, Corden even modified his Twitter consumer title to replicate a brand new nickname given to him by Jin — The Late Late Show With Joke Guy⁷. Jimin continues to be known as Baby Mochi by followers within the United States and abroad.

Why, precisely, is Jimin referred to as Mochi?

Sure, Jimin loves ice cream like the opposite BTS members. That’s not the one purpose why followers nicknamed him mochi, although. It’s largely because of this Ok-pop idol’s chubby cheeks and his cute persona. 

“Fans started calling Jimin mochi because his cheeks resembled the squishiness of a mochi,” one Quora consumer mentioned. “Another reason is his cute and adorable persona. Especially when he does aegyo. Fans started calling him mochi after seeing his pouts.”

The “Life Goes On” music video is now accessible on YouTube. Music by BTS, together with their just lately launched album, Map of the Soul: 7, is on the market for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most main platforms.
