Jo Kwon thanks BTS's J-Hope for performing 'Animal' with him back in 2012 + hopes to perform a new version of the song together someday


's Jo Kwon expressed his feelings about the recent rise in popularity of his first solo song, "Animal".

On the SBS radio show 'Heo Ji Woong Show', which aired on June 29th, Jo Kwon appeared as a guest and discussed his 2012 song "Animal", which is receiving belated love from global fans. During the radio show's corner 'I Live For This', Jo Kwon stated, "[Animal] is my first solo song, featuring J-Hope. Bang Si Hyuk produced this song for me. I wore 20cm high heels and danced in styles such as voguing and waacking. At that time, the song was considered to be too ahead of its time. But recently, it topped the music charts in the Middle East. I was so surprised to see so many encouraging messages on my Twitter account." He continued, "I am very, very grateful to BTS's J-Hope for being with me [during the promotion of my song]." 

Jo Kwon further left a heartwarming message directed at J-Hope, saying, "Thanks to our performance together, the song is now being recognized by many fans in year 2021. If we have a chance later on, I hope we can perform a new version together. Fighting."

Jo Kwon also revealed his love for wearing high heels. He said, "I own about forty pairs of high heels. I've fallen down while wearing regular shoes many times, but I've never fallen when wearing high heels. Superman gets stronger in his cape. That's kind of what high heels do for me."

Would be a treat to watch Animal being performed again, the song is a bop.

As j-hope's first songwriting credit garnered even before his debut with BTS and Jo Kwon's very first solo song, Animal being performed again would no doubt be a lovely reminder of it's timeless beat.

Yes, please! Animal 2021 version!

Animal was the song that made me know Jung Hoseok, before he used the stage name j-hope.

I recognized his talent on rap and dance.

Thanks to Jokwon.

Can't wait for their reunion!!
