Thanks to that, RM is the main spokesman of BTS when the group is active in the international market. He answered fluently and skillfully in English and gave the members a chance to express themselves.

The male idol has twice represented BTS and is also the only Kpop artist to be honored to speak at the United Nations General Assembly with an inspirational speech to the audience.

In addition to his remarkable foreign language ability, another factor that makes RM always admired is the way he answers questions from the press at concert press conferences or product launches.

The road to the music career

If including the time working as an underground rapper, RM has been active for 10 years so far.

From an early age, RM showed a special interest in poetry and words. He used to write a lot of poems in his notebook. Until 2016, RM was inspired after hearing Epik High's ace Fly and wished he could also tell his own stories through music. After that, RM practiced writing rap lyrics and worked as an underground rapper under the stage name Runch Randa.

After finishing high school, RM had to convince his mother a lot to pursue a musical career, becoming a rapper and a music producer. Always a good student with excellent academic records and a bright future, it was very difficult for RM to convince his mother to make music.

He has to choose between two options, one is to continue his studies, the other is to pursue his passion for art. RM shared in his autobiography that he struggled a lot and told his mother, "My score is ranked 5000 in the nation, but if it's rap, I can be first. Do you want your son to be 5000th or first?".

Sleepy then introduced RM to Bang Shi Hyuk - president of Big Hit Entertainment. And then in 2010, RM became the first member of BTS. In 2013, RM debuted as the leader of BTS, leading the group up from hardship to the success it is today.

Giving up the underground and becoming an idol was extremely difficult for both RM and bandmate Suga, because underground followers often have prejudice and hatred towards the idol world. They think that idols are just people who dress and makeup like girls, step on stage to sing and dance according to what is arranged in advance. The fact that RM and Suga abandoned the underground at that time and debuted as idols received much criticism and mixed opinions from many other underground rappers.

Fortunately, until now, after debuting with BTS for 7 years, RM has proven to those who hate him that idols are also true artists, dedicating and transmitting music. around the world rather than performing robots.

"For those who have been asking and spreading the meme… No, we have not released the 2022 Lists yet. We only ever release the Top 100 lists in late December.

As much as we like both RM (Kim Nam-Joon) and Henry Cavill, neither of them has ever been crowned the winner or even been in the Top 5.

Nothing has been decided in 2022 and nothing will be until we hold a vote in December.

If you see the meme or the news story floating around social media, please ignore and don’t share.

Thank you — TC Candler"
