Surprise surprise! Professional MMA fighter Seo JiYeon recently revealed that she is the cousin of BTS leader RM, on her dad’s side.
This is quite interesting as we have more information about RM’s family members. Of course, we don’t ever want to invade the privacy of anyone but now that the information has been revealed by Seo JiYeon herself, it’s great to know.
If you’re wondering why she hasn’t mentioned this fact before in the past, it’s because she kept it a secret out of respect for RM.
Seo stated that while she has known RM ever since her childhood days, she stated that it wasn’t easy to come up with the courage to approach him so easily after he became a world-famous superstar. In addition, she displayed quite a humble and considerate attitude stating that she wanted to improve her status as a fighter and focus on her work and reach a point where she could proudly say she was the cousin of RM. She stated that she did not want to insult BTS nor ARMY.
But of course, knowing both BTS and ARMY, they would have embraced her with open arms.
At the moment, she has competed in twelve official matches. Eight of them are wins and four are losses.
