W Korea welcomed Jimin to its studio and hailed him as its latest solo cover star. During the interview, the K-pop idol was asked about his thoughts after becoming the global ambassador for Dior. He also talked about his solo career, including his collaboration with Taeyang.

According to Jimin, the Wedding Dress singer is his idol.

"Taeyang is like my idol. To the point where it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that I've come this far with the goal of one day working on music with him. When I was younger, I felt and learned a lot while watching his promotions," he said.

Jimin added that when Taeyang contacted him about a chance to collaborate with him, he initially thought it was a lie. He then saw a much cooler side of Taeyang when they started working on their music, praising him for meticulously working throughout the production process.
