[TRANS] 20170529 BTS @ BBMAs Press Conference

1.)Yoongi: right before we debut, SNS is the only way I can communicate directly with fans.

2.)Namjoon: I’m always thankful for armys who work hard to translate our songs into various languages, that makes other armys can understand the story or messages we want to convey, and the reason why we always have english subs for our MVs and other videos, it is because we thought that this is the best way to get close to the fans and for them to understand us better, language barrier should not come in the way between BTS and armys.

3.)Namjoon : Actually, we never really dream of winning the BBMAs, it still feels like a dream even until now.
Winning the award makes us reflects on what the meaning behind all these, the award itself, the international fame and recognition that comes along, and it definitely brought back memories when we first debuted in 2013, we built this path with bang pd, our manager hyungs, staffs and of course fans who have been supporting us since day 1, and I’m forever grateful for what they have done for us. BTS will continue to work hard and stay humble, we will continue to produce more music to communicate with the fans because we believe that music connects everyone, not even language barrier can come in between BTS and Armys.

4.)Namjoon : thank you to media and fans all around the world for all the love and attention you gave us, but for now, BTS would like to concentrate more on music, no plans to enter the U.S market for now, we still believe singing and rapping in Korean is what we do the best.

5.)Yoongi : There are times when I spend many sleepless nights thinking about BTS and my future, ie “what if I fail?”, “what if I don’t live up to the expectation?”, “what if I disappoints my family, my members and fans?”, thoughts like these always bring me to tears.

6.)Yoongi: BTS started off from a small company and with only 1000 followers on twitter, we all went thru so many hardships together, and there are days when we just want to give up or have doubts, but thanks to the support of the members,friends and family, it looks more bearable now. And when bangtan first debuted, many people say bangtan gonna fail and we won’t last, but what breaks us only makes us stronger. I believe in Namjoon’s leadership, Jin’s brotherly advice, Hobi’s positive mindset, Jimin’s caring nature, Tae’s determination and JK’s confidence.

7.)Yoongi: I am that kind of person who worries a lot, i.e when BTS decides concept for their upcoming album, I’m worried if the story / messages we want to tell will be conveyed thru the album itself.

8.)Jungkook: I’m always on SNS to read tweets / comments by fans, I read fan letters too.

9.)Hoseok: armys constantly on my mind, the first thing I want to do when I’m back in Korea is to see the fans that I miss so much.

10.) Jimin: all the members share one twitter account, there are times when we don’t even know who tweeted what, it can get very confusing tho.

11.) Jin: I’m known as “the third guy from the left” @ BBMAs, my worldwide handsomeness is world class.

Super Junior’s Kibum surprises fans with his first tweet in 10 months

Super Junior‘s Kim Kibum has finally shown a glimpse of himself through SNS to fans who have been long-awaiting for an update regarding the idle artist.
On July 17th, Kim Kibum of Super Junior posted a brand new tweet onto his official Twitter account with the short comment, “Hello,” which is the idol star’s first tweet in approximately 10 months.
In September 2014, Kibum returned to the SNS website after a two-year hiatus, tweeting, “Guess who’s back?”, which has since then been deleted along with all his other tweets. He first created his account in January 2011.
Though many fans recall Kibum having made several tweets towards his fellow Super Junior members and other Korean celebrities on the day he created his new Twitter account over four years ago, the profile currently states that he only has two tweets in total—one of which is the recent, “Hello,” tweet from the 17th.

Some netizens have been wondering what might have prompted the star to finally tweet something at such a random moment while other netizens have been speculating that it may have been due to the fact that the other Super Junior members mentioned his whereabouts on the most recent broadcast of MBC‘s Golden Fishery – Radio Star on July 15th.
During the episode, MC Kim Gura asked the members, “So what happened to our friend, Kibum?” in which leader Leeteuk answered, “He is currently working on a drama and he is also on a long-term leave from Super Junior.”

When MC Kim Gook Jin continued to ask the members, “So does that mean he is still part of the group or not?” Eunhyuk responded, “Kibum is of course still a member of Super Junior, however, he has been focusing on his aspirations of becoming an actor and is no longer promoting as a singer with the rest of us Super Junior members.”
Kim Gura then firmly asked, “If he [Kibum] says he wants to come back, would you let him [promote with Super Junior]?” in which Eunhyuk nodded his head and said, “Of course.”
Many fans have responded in a positive light toward Kibum’s sudden SNS comeback, leaving tweets and comments such as, “Oppa, we’ve missed you so much!” “Is this really you, Kibum?” and, “Hi! You’ve been gone for so long. How are you doing, oppa?” However, no responses have been made by the star yet.

About MTV The Show Voting (no matter who you’re voting for/voted for)

Here is the breakdown of how votes count:

Pre-score (before The Show is on air): 

  • Album sales + Digital Sales + SNS (tweets, views on Youtube, etc.) = 35%
  • Views on Tudou + Paid vote items (China) = 35% (many people are assuming that BTS won this based on the Tudou website ranking)(this is what we all just did)

We really won’t know who won until it’s announced, tbh. But I think I know one thing for sure: a lot of us love both Bangtan Boys and UNIQ <3
