Honestly, I was scared about how I would be as the eldest in BTS. I wondered if I, who have always been the youngest, could be like a fence as the eldest. For me, the older brother’s role was always an awesome one, to support the younger ones and make sure they don’t fall. I’ve been having the same worries now as I did one year ago. But I think I’m lucky that I am the eldest in BTS, and not somewhere else. Namjoon, who is a pillar for the other 6 members. Yoongi, who acts like he doesn’t care, but takes care of you behind your back. Hoseok, who always provides endorphines. And the 3 youngest members who always listen to the older members. Although I am still lacking, it is because these friends make up for what I lack that I am able to play the role of the eldest. - Jin
I only heard words like, “You will not succeed,” “What are you going to do in the future if you go down the music route,” etc. But these words make me rise instead and I become determined that “no matter how hard it is, I will succeed in doing music.” Maybe you can say that I have come this far all thanks to these belittlement.
★ I was really sad when I couldn’t film any vlogs. I followed the hyungs whenever they filmed a log, but couldn’t actually upload any of mine on the blog. I sat by myself and said “It’s this month and this date 2013, today I did this, this won’t go on the blog, right? I’m sad.” I was also there when they filmed their group log, it’s just that I wasn’t shown on screen - I was actually standing by the trashcan. When I was revealed as a Bangtan member, I received exactly one letter. I was so happy. I didn’t sleep until 4:00 am and read it about fifteen times. I kept showing it off to the hyungs. - V
Bangtan is the first and last team of my life. Until the end, I want to become more and more successful with the other members. And when we have finally made it, I want to be able to look back and say “This is how hard we have worked for this.“ - V (★)
Who do you think is the strangest member? All: V! Suga:Everyone says this but people with blood type AB are either a complete genius or a complete idiot. He’s both. Rap Monster:In my opinion, he’s 10% genius and 90% idiot.
The reason why I made BTS was because of Rapmon. There was no specific event. As soon as I heard his rapping, I thought “Oh? I need to let him debut” and we signed a contract as soon as we met. In the end, I made this group because of Rap Monster. - Bang PD
[★] On our debut album, we talked about dreams. On our second album, we talked about happiness. And now for this album, we talked about love. We thought that those three things are some of the big titles in a teenage life. That is why the title of a school concept trilogy was given to us.
Rap Monster and I are opposites. I like to be straight forward and direct whereas Rap Monster likes softer, deep metaphoric music. I think a synergy effect is born when we find a middle ground of our styles when composing. - SUGA (x)
