BTS Used to Secretly Nap in the Bathroom During Intense Rehearsals

BTS is one of the most popular artists in the world right now, but their rise to fame did not come without some hard work. It’s no secret that BTS has put a lot of time and effort into building up their career. In fact, there was even a time when the members worked so hard that they did not get enough sleep. This led them to secret nap in the bathroom during rehearsals.

BTS snuck naps in the bathroom while recording their first album

BTS’s first studio album, Dark & Wild, was released in August 2014. The group was not yet a household name at this point, but they still put a lot of work into developing and promoting Dark & Wild.

In an interview with Pitchfork, BTS revealed details behind the album. Member Jungkook recalled that, while recording the lead single, “Danger,” they were also busy with a ton of other things, including filming a show and learning choreography.

“We had a lot of things on the itinerary while we were overseas and had to record the song at the same time,” Jungkook said. “What I remember most is the stark white rehearsal room. We all practice there, low on sleep.”

He added that the lack of sleep sometimes took a toll on them, saying, “We were all so sleepy that we used to sneak into the bathroom to take naps. And our instructor would say, “Hey! Get out!”

Speaking to Pitchfork, V noted that the members were “quite desperate” back then before they found fame, which explains why they were determined to do their best at every turn.

This BTS Member Takes the Most Time in the Bathroom

Even award-winning singers like Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook run late sometimes. Which BTS member takes the most time in the bathroom? Here’s what the other six members had to say about this performer who sparked a catchphrase.

There are seven members in the K-pop group, BTS

With seven award-winning singers, rappers, and dancers in this K-pop group, each of the members have their own quirks and special roles within BTS. V doesn’t like wearing shoes. RM is always losing his AirPods. 

For whatever reason, Jin carries always utensils in his bag even though he never uses them. When it comes to who takes the longest to get ready, though, two members always get the shoutout from the other performers in the group.

As of recently, Jungkook has been taking the most time in the bathroom

When it comes to who takes the longest in the shower, thanks to an interview with Radio Disney, fans learned that Jungkook takes the cake. He shared that sometimes he takes 50-minute showers, which sometimes makes him late in the morning.

“Well then, he’s got to get up 50 minutes earlier,” Suga said, according to a translation.

In terms of who takes the longest getting ready in the morning, though, these performers have a different answer. According to a “cumulative” answer from the K-pop idols, overall, Jimin takes the most time getting ready, even running late once and a while.
