Q99: Memorable Christmas memory?
RAP MONSTER: I remember when I was 6 years old and I heard that my family is going to travel during Christmas, so I asked them: “is Santa Claus going to come on time?” Because we were going to the countryside so I was worried (laughs).
SUGA: When I was a child, my family used to eat together. I’m not
living with them right now, so I think those were great memories.
JIN: When I went to the ski resort with my father and older brother! We went every Christmas when I was in primary school!
J-HOPE: In the past, it snowed heavily on Christmas, the long-cherished White Christmas! I remember building snowman with my family, bustling with noise and excitement!
JIMIN: I want to see try to make memorable memory of Christmas in the future. My ideal Christmas has to snow, then have fun in the ski resort and lastly go view the night scenery, that would the best.
V: I think couples celebrate Christmas more, but I’ve always been alone since birth (laughs). During school days, I spent it with my friends who were also single. We went to the PC room, played games, ate ramen and we bluffed like: “as expected, it’s the best to spend Christmas in the PC room.” (laughs)
JUNGKOOK: There was a year, when I was sleeping with my older brother, my eyes were half open and I saw my father with a fake white beard. I thought “Santa Claus really came,” I felt asleep with happiness.
Q100: As BTS, what do you want to achieve in 2018?
RAP MONSTER: Perform in the biggest venue in each country!
SUGA: Until now, we’ve achieved a variety of goals. We’re fortunate that all of our wishes became true. But I hope next year we won’t get caught on the results while enjoying the music that we like, and I hope we can spend happy time with everyone.
JIN: Make the music that everyone would like to listen to. In private, I want to enjoy the fun of letting off fireworks with the members (laughs).
J-HOPE: Stand on world-class stage, perform many amazing performances. It’s a goal and a dream.
JIMIN: Personally, I’m not really concerned about the records. We can achieve those records is because of our fans. But the fact that we can break new records, I’m really grateful and thank you. So, I hope 2018 is a year where we could spend more time with ARMYs.
V: After I’ve watched some Japanese movies, I saw a lot of really beautiful places. I want to go outside of the big cities and perform live there, I want to see those scenery in person. And I want to go and meet more ARMYs!
JUNGKOOK: I hope I can make a great song that is able to be included in a BTS album! I’ll keep take on the challenge.
