Jung Hoseok (Hangul: 정호석; born February 18, 1994, in Gwangju, South Korea), commonly referred to by his stage name; J-Hope, is a dancer and rapper from South Korea. He is currently a member of South Korean hip-hop group BTS (Hangul: 방탄소년단) as main dancer and lead rapper.

Before debuting with BTS, he had been apart of a street dance team called NEURON. Around the same time, he had been rejected by JYP and had been taken on by BigHit Entertainment as a trainee instead.

In October 2013, J-Hope alongside V, Jungkook (Hangul: 정국) and Jimin (Hangul: 지민), released a cover of "#Beautiful" (original by Mariah Carey) along side a music video, simply called "Beautiful".

In June 2013 he was revealed as a rapper alongside RM and Suga (or, Agust D) after teaser images had surfaced. He debuted with BTS on June 12, 2013, as main dancer and lead rapper.

In December 2015, he released his first solo track called "1 VERSE". Coincidentally, this was also when he began work on "Blue Side (Outro)". It was released on his mixtape in 2018.

In February 2018, teasers for his unnamed mixtape started to be posted on the group's Twitter account. The official release date for the mixtape was set to release on March 2, 2018, as confirmed by BigHit via their official Twitter. His first mixtape Hope World was released on March 2, 2018. The first promoted track for the mixtape was "Daydream (백일몽)". The second MV for Hope World was "Airplane", which was released on March 7, 2018.
