“Hwaiting” and the Purple Heart
The Korean term “hwaiting” carries the essence of encouragement and perseverance. J-Hope’s choice of this word reflects his unyielding determination during his military service. The purple heart emoji, synonymous with love and trust, holds a special place within the world of BTS and ARMY. It was introduced by fellow member V in 2016 as the embodiment of “I purple you.”

Regular interactions on Weverse provide a glimpse into his day-to-day experiences, ensuring that ARMY remains connected to his journey. Additionally, his intermittent Instagram updates offer intimate glimpses into his life during this phase. The camaraderie shared among BTS members is commendable, even during their respective military services. J-Hope recently joined forces with Jin for a brief hiatus to support SUGA’s concert in Seoul. Both J-Hope and Jin are contributing to their national duty through military service, showcasing their unity and dedication to both their craft and country.
Beyond his military commitments, J-Hope has exciting plans on the horizon.

Additionally, fans can anticipate an OST release encompassing a total of six songs.
