Rumors
Posted by yckim124 AKP STAFF 30 days ago

Netizens discover pre-debut photos of BTS' RM with cornrows?

Netizens allegedly discovered old photos of Namjoon when he had cornrows. 

A new set of alleged pre-debut photos of RM have surfaced online. What stands out the most in these cuts is RM's hair. As you can see, the idol had a fierce cornrow look going on.

Netizens assume the photos were taken when RM was in middle school. 

Comments stated, "Is that really Namjoon..?" "Omg lolol he looks like a kid with issues against society," "This is too cute," "hahahaha I thought this was photoshopped," "I can't believe that's him lol," "No offense but he kind of looks like Park Myung Soo."


How are you liking younger RM's cornrow look?

LOL @ These Delulu armpits who can never accept the facts and can make stupid excuses such as "namjoon has 3 moles, he doesn't." IDIOTS. You're not born with moles. Moles can appear anytime and anywhere on your body. See these pics. Ears are the same. He just got some plastic surgery on his face

RM in the 2nd pic got whitewashed too much so some little details seems skipped.


And once again

Well maybe some members did plastic surgery but I don’t think RM did. You can’t expect him to look identical, he was barely a teen in that 10+ year old picture. His face is quite the same but of course with expensive treatment and makeup. Beenzino is the man tho. I’m glad he didn’t lol

For RM, I think it's the angle. The pre-debut picture that you posted is of him in highschool, but the one posted in the article is of him in middle school still looks like the same nose he has now. Not sure about Jimin though.

Puberty is a thing, you get it or not. Not only you loose baby fat, you produce more hormones, here Testosterone that do change external features. Especially for East-Asians, as babies alot of them have kinda flatter noses which develop a shape of their own as they grow. Doctors have said children also transition from monolid to double lid or vice versa. Anatomy is a thing, I have studied anatomy and genetics since I am a Biotechnologist, I don't claim to be an expert on puberty growth but there are naturally beautiful people who have drastic changes in their appearance as they grow. And Jimin's changes are very normal and you know he is the same person. Plus the operation for this kind of surgery leaves swelling for atleast six months and would be noticeable with some residuals indicating a surgery. BTS has been on schedule continuously around this transition, when do you think they had surgeries done which went completely unnoticed? Kook is a prime example of hitting puberty. Anyways I don't believe the members got PS done, except RM did the correction of septum deviation thing done last year (2018) which did change his nose a bit, But thats it.

and its clear that Puberty was the resaon why Jungkook and V face changed and became more manly it's not jmin case whatver if they are happy it's better for them im korean and i know how it works in my country everything is about visual and beauty if BTS weren't good looking no one could even give them attention even if they are talented rememebr when they debuted they were differente and even people in korea called them uglies boys except for Jin , check their first fansign people even ignored V because of his skin color , they still call hoseok ugly reson why he don't recieve the attention that other member like V , jimin , kookie , jin recieve , , jimin became the top of the top because he looks more and more feminine and do too much fan service this is how it works !!!

Tbh, I think people are making too much of a big deal of plastic surgery. So what if they got some done? They did or maybe they didn't and it was all puberty. Procedures nowadays aren't rare, mostly in South Korea and the cosmetic surgeons take pride in doing non-invasive fix-ups all the time to enhance the features that are already there, that's what they consider good surgery. For the rest, it's a combination of diet, face treatment, hair styling, make-up (make-up is important because with shading and highlighting it can make you look as different as if you had plastic surgery, just take a ride on youtube and look for make-overs, you're gonna be baffled). And yes, that and puberty can entirely change a person as well and I wouldn't disregard this possibility; for example, Jimin lost his mochi cheeks and baby fat starting from his 20ties (which is exactly the point one starts to lose baby fat; I speak from experience, I was a potato when I was a teen and without doing anything I just changed to an amusing degree when I finished highschool lolz) + he had quite extreme diets in that period as well that didn't only change his face but also slimmed his legs and his Jibooty which up till War of Hormones was something pervy ARMYs always pointed out lol (and after all that, Jimin's still not happy with his face lol if he had plastic surgery, poor himx2 tbh). But the reality of it is still that kpop bases itself a lot on visuals, so if they had any work done I wouldn't be surprised, if they didn't, good for them again, we don't really have to judge them for it either in my opinion.


Also that article about Beenzino is from Koreaboo and they're assumptions, not facts. The explanation he gave for rejecting the BigHit contract was because he didn't want to be an idol and because he was thinking of marrying lol.

Why is everyone so fired up about these pictures? So what if this was or wasnt namjoon? Even if it was, this was PRE DEBUT, over five years ago. I personally dont think it's him, but if it was, im not going to be offended. He was younger, and the past is in the past, and frankly, i dont see him wearing them right now, and even if he was, theres tons of idols and celebrities who arent "ethnically correct" who are wearing this particular hairstyle. Thats like saying a woman of color who straightens and dyes her hair lighter is offensive. Im not saying everyone is taking this controversy into that perspective, but i have read a whole ton of comments that hint, or just bluntly state that that's their opinion.

That too! I think even if he got it, that was his decision/he knew he would probably have to get it as one of the steps for becoming an idol. Its popular in Korea to get this treatment, anyways. It wouldnt surprise me, even though he basically looks the same, which means he would have probably had to get something small and unnoticeable. I say the assumptions on him and the other members about plastic surgery are false (other than when namjoon had to get his nose fixed because he couldnt breathe too well). I've seen SO many people have major glow ups that don't even look realistic, whatsoever, but that doesn't mean they had went to a cosmetic doctor to enhance the way they look. Ive also read a couple of articles in the past about how bts won some kind of award for being a successful band who hasnt had to undergo plastic surgery, but im not going to stick my opinion on what i see on the internet. I do, however, think it's pointless to argue about PS, and that we're wasting eachother's time over this. This is old news, that we should leave in the past. If he had PS, it's not affecting us the slightest, because we're not him. His attitude hasnt been affected negitavely if he got it, and if it was something he thought would help him love himself more, then he is free to have it, it's HIS body, and HIS choice, we are just mere strangers. We dont have the power to say that his "enhancements" are wrong, that's his decision.

honey It still could be him. You can easily recognize his distinct jaw. One side of his face is noticeably larger than the other. And using moles as a way to distinguish people isn’t always accurate. You aren’t born with moles, they develop over time. He might not have had the moles he has today, back when he was younger.

To me, it really doesn't look like Namjoon. Sorry, I'm not good in explaining this in English (not my native language), but I think it's mostly the nose: judging from the side profile, the nasal bridge of the boy with cornrows is idk somewhat more uplifted (?) while the tip is not as pointy as Namjoon's and the nose of the boy in general looks a little bit bigger.

Also, I think his lipline is sharper than Namjoon's but that could also depend on the makeup.

I'm not an army though? Sure I enjoy some of their songs but I wouldn't say I'm part of the fandom. I just know the difference between what a photo looks like from ten years ago versus a picture that was taken with an hd camera within this year. I never said any of the idols I follow are perfect, because no human being is perfect. I mostly was just stating that this kid is a good look a like since the QUALITY of the photo is not one from his middle school years since namjoon is going to be 25 years old. so I'm not the 'everything wrong' with any fandom. please try to have a conversation without being rude, swearing, or degrading because anyone can resort to name calling but to actually look at logic might take a few seconds more.

yall claiming that BTS members had plastic surgery when they obviously didn't Namjoon has mentioned this before, he said that he only had a surgery on his nose because of health reasons, his nose bridge was too low and he had breathing problems, Bang si hyuk did not ask any of the members to have a plastic surgery just cuz that incidence happened with Beenzino, doesn't mean BTS were asked the same thing + bringing up predebut photos of jimin and compering them to now, then saying he had plastic surgery just cuz his jawline looks sharper isn't acceptable, jimin debuted at the age of 17 so he was still a teenager at that time and so were the rest of the members, of course he would change that's called puberty honey. if someone had a plastic surgery it would be very easy to spot it, but these small changes they went through don't prove anything. so if you are that jobless to be researching shit about others and spreading rumours then i feel sorry for you.

I agree with you. When BTS members lose weight, we can see that their jawlines get sharper. 2 BTS members were 20yrs old (Int'l age), the rest were teenagers when BTS debuted. All BTS members basically went from being teenagers to adults before our very eyes if you include their pre-debut period. Puberty performed its magic during those years combined with hard core dance practices, hair stylists, make-up artists, and great fashion choices. During middle school one of my male friends was geeky and very average looking. Puberty hit him like a truck. He grew about a foot and his body and face changed over the next couple of years (I saw him every day). He developed the same strong jawline and high bridged prominent nose that his dad had. He became the school hottie. If people saw his middle school pictures they might think he had plastic surgery too, but he went from a goofy average-looking kid to a complete hottie just by growing up. Just look at Jungkook, he was only 15 when he debuted - looks like that puberty truck hit him twice.

A part of me believes you're secretly an NCTzen in denial. Like you always bring them up, even when no one is talking about them, not to mention you're always one of the first people to their articles.👀👀👀

I am very sorry for all the ARMY that are associated by a person like you who seeks every opportunity to troll and pick fights when people aren't even shading or talking bad about BTS. If anyone needs to stop being dumb it's a troll like you.

Well for starters....from my perspective it looks like the person in the picture( with the cornrows) has detached earlobes, and rm has attached earlobes so..... Just talked about this in science class and noticed this so.............i’m 120% sure this is not the same person

...kpop gossip is really weird.


Because people are full of nonsense, I decided to look around myself at twitter, instagram, and here, and something guided me to a 3.29.2018 naver blog article with 4 likes from Rasta Special Hair in Hongdae ---- basically, an advertisement. These photos are basically of the most miserable hair model I've ever seen.


...so - wheee, I guess that hair salon is getting clout now because netizens are ridiculous?

I guess - like a puzzle - it's more interesting what you see in the photo one way or another, than what is in the photo, unless of course that photo does become identified better to RM somehow. It shows more about you than anything else.


For me - even if this miserable teen were RM - I'd be seriously wondering how he ended up as a hair salon model for this salon. Did he get paid? Was it some friend or relative asking him for a favor when he was a pre-debut trainee? I would just be seriously asking for some context.


But beyond that - look, if you see how tacky that hair salon is in its advertising, then don't you GET how clueless Koreans are about cultural sensitivity to African-American fashions in the mainstream? I 100% want that to change and want to push for it, but you go all the way back to 2012 or before to try to dig up someone who had an unfortunate hair modeling gig, at best, when he was younger than 18 years old? Seriously, world? That's your selection to direct moral outrage at? Maybe you just think the source of that moral outrage is a joke? Because that is what I'm getting out of this. If you think yanking our chain with stupid crap is funny - YOU'RE NOT ACTUALLY TAKING US SERIOUSLY.

I don't believe this is Namjoon, her looked very different during his middle school pics and when he was a trainee with BH. Maybe this is just some look alike kid.

Look. For all antis. Aside if it's him or not in the picture, yes, namjoon WAS problematic. Way back then when he was younger and ignorance. But the thing is he eventually grow and learn from his past. Unlike "others", namjoon is a man who acknowledge his mistake. He doesn't act cocky and doesn't pull the "but everyone did the same too". He is a man who want to learn and learn to be better. He is an intelligent who reads and try to learn about different cultures, society, and little things that might be sensitive. Before you said it's a bullshit, try to read some articles and in-depth interviews about him mentioning his past mistake and how he overcame it that's all over the internet. Research it and stop pulling shit from YEARS ago and stop being an asshole to a humble man who is fully aware now.

Glad I read the comments. I honestly was like either that's not him or he got major plastic surgery cause the kid in that picture looks almost nothing like him. Maybe straight on they look similar because they have similar eyes and eyebrows, but everything else looks wayyyy different. Side profile it's a completely different person. Alkpop even do their research? Do they ever?

The kid in the picture also looks much older than middle school age. Probably high school or even college.
