BTS recently opened up about winning first place on a music show, as well as their determination for future activities.
The group went on a winning streak, as they reached the number one spot starting with the May 5 broadcast of SBS MTV’s “The Show,” the May 7 broadcast of Mnet’s “M!Countdown,” as well as their first-ever public broadcast music show win, since debuting, on the May 8 episode of KBS’ “Music Bank.”
On May 8, MBN Star met with BTS for an interview, during which member Suga expressed, “The trophy was very heavy when we received it. I don’t mean the actual weight [of the trophy], but I felt a sense of responsibility to develop even more and work even harder after receiving the award. All of the members know very well the weight/value [of winning an award], and I hope we continue to promote humbly.”
The oldest member Jin and leader Rap Monster shared, “On the way back to our dorm after receiving the award, we said something like this: ‘Because our fans gave us such a great award, let’s not lose our roots and do well.’ Amongst the members, we made a promise to not be prideful, and especially in these circumstances, to pay more attention to every single one of our actions and speech, and also to greet everyone well.”
Member Jimin added, “I still can’t believe it. I was completely dumbfounded when we received [the award] and was in a daze, thinking ‘Did we really win?’ But after thinking about it once we actually came down from the stage, I thought, ‘All the hard work and practice until now wasn’t in vain.’ I also thought a lot about the fans that were able to make this happen for us. We will work even harder.”
When asked about their goals for the future, Suga explained, “I think it’s important for us to keep doing well without tiring out until the end—even if our bodies are tired. I believe we have to go through the first week of every promotion thinking of our debut.”
