On the special Lunar New Year’s episode of KBS “Idol and Family National Singing Competition”, Bangtan Boys members Jimin and Jungkook took the stage with their manager Kim Hyun Soo. The trio perform Cho Yong Pil’s famous ballad “I Hope It Will Be That Way Now,” with Jungkook and Jimin starting off the emotional cover. When it’s Kim Hyun Soo’s turn to sing, Jungkook helps his nervous manager by counting him in and then singing along with his first line. The three of them then harmonize together as they wrap up their performance.
