BTS’ J-Hope previews his BT21 character Mang without a mask
BTS members created fan-favorite little characters BT21, each representing one of the members.
Recently, J-Hope revealed that his character Mang has gotten to the point where he should be showing his face without his mask.
The removal of Mang’s mask represents J-Hope himself and represents J-Hope’s second chapter as an artist.
“He’s a character that I created and he has a little part of me. This character is unlike any other and I wonder if I could make a bigger impact. »
J-Hope then sat down to create Mang’s actual design. As with the founding of BT21, an artist sat by his side to help whenever he needed ideas.
J-Hope wasn’t sure of his drawing skills, but he started with a really nice…circle!
J-Hope really wanted Mang to have a heart-shaped mouth, and he added details depicting his own smile.
Then an employee gave him the idea of using wings as ears. Although this isn’t the final draft of what the ears will look like, J-Hope really liked this great idea.
Next, J-Hope wanted Mang to have “brave” eyes to show his bravery. For what ? Because he has the courage to take off his mask and reveal himself to the whole world!
Mang is therefore a mixture of bravery and…cuteness, as we can see in J-Hope’s drawing.
However, J-Hope didn’t want Mang to change too much. He will be different, but not very different, so it may be in his best interest to choose a species similar to a dinosaur.
Again, J-Hope insisted on the bold and cool side that Mang must have, something that must be evident in the design.
J-Hope has been experimenting with different ideas that haven’t been taken up yet, such as changing the shape of his face…
Or add mustaches…
In the end, J-Hope seems to have many ideas for Mang’s design, and fans can’t wait to see him without a mask!
