Have u been watching all the interviews lately?... im so sad they’re so unmeaningful and repetitive... i hope ellen asks some good questions or else im gonna flip
Yes I have!! Honestly, same. Some of the questions are really undermining them as humans and artists. BTS are so much more than just a ‘boy band’ they’re a group of young, intelligent, caring, loving and handsome men who are out there using their platform to speak words for themselves and those who don’t have a voice to do so. No interview so far has asked them solely about their music and only the same old ‘will you be making an album in English’ and I hate that damned question. Why do they as South Koreans need to please the Western market with an English album when they’re comfortable in using their own language to express their messages? Why do they need them to conform to Western tastes when we can adapt to them, which quite frankly we have done for this whole time - we’ve been able to love them so far without an English album, so why does that need to change when people will continue to love them for their music in Korean? Another thing is that the fact that people are asking for English albums are really just proving how they’re separating music when music is an international language (if that makes any sense at all?).
They haven’t even fucking asked them about the UNICEF Campaign that they’re doing yet, instead they’re asking pretty irrelevant questions like ‘celebrity crushes’. Why don’t they actually ask about something that is meaningful and important like UNICEF, and how this campaign is spreading positivity and helping to End Violence? Those are the things I want to hear, I don’t really want to know about who they want to see at the AMAs because they’re BTS, we should know by now that they’re grateful people who are so open to music that they’re happy to basically see everyone there. The questions are ridiculously repetitive and I’m so disappointed in those questions, because as ‘intellectuals’ they should be asking other intellectuals questions that are important and meaningful. Bangtan aren’t showing their full intelligence with these sort of questions.
I’m really hoping Ellen asks good questions that allows them to talk about their passion freely ~
Edit: Can I just add that they don’t owe you guys anything, they’ve got this far and made it there with their music in Korean, so don’t think that they suddenly owe you shit because they’re in the US and should make pure English songs. They’re in America for the pure reason that they’re talented and passionate about what they do. Stop trying to change them to fit to your ‘standards’.
