The pair go back pre-BTS debut: when J-Hope was still a trainee at BigHit in 2012, he featured as a rapper on Jo Kwon's solo single "Animal". He and other BTS members have also performed as Jo Kwon's backup dancers and in his music videos.
Jo Kwon posted J-Hope's "Hope World" mixtape artwork on Instagram along with a bunch of photos of them looking like pals, that look to be taken at Jo Kwon's cereal cafe in Seoul as well as the gym.
In the caption he wrote: “Animal feat J-Hope. Hoseok, who I met for the first time in a long while and am so proud of! Do well with your mixtape too! Ah, it’s already done well.”
