Jennie (BLACKPINK) - Zookeeper

V (BTS) - Farmer
If you've been following BTS for a long time, fans will know well that V does not come from a "sophisticated" background, but on the contrary, his childhood life is quite difficult, almost completely opposite to the present. Fortunately, the male idol participated in the audition and became an indispensable "piece" of BTS as it is now.
BTS's 4D male beauty once shared, "I come from a poor family and never thought I would become famous. Becoming an idol is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If I weren't in BTS , maybe I'll become a farmer. I'll weed in the fields with my grandmother."
Yuna (ITZY) - MC/Comedian
On a TV show, the youngest ITZY once shared that being an idol was not her dream. When she was young, the female idol also wanted to become a public figure, but as an MC or comedian.
