@star1 magazine has revealed their interview and photo shoot with popular group BTS!

Currently busy with their Asia tour, the members reveal their happiness and thankfulness for being able to greet overseas fans again through this opportunity. Jimin says, “I always have fun and feel happy on stage. I could feel that more people are supporting us through this tour compared to the last one. I think that means we have to that much harder and continue to improve.”

Jungkook adds, “I am always nervous and thankful every time I go up on stage. It’s hard during the moments when we perform difficult choreography but when the concert ends the audience ends up giving us more strength.”

They also talk about their short trip to Europe last May. Suga comments, “I was really excited since it was the first time the members went on a vacation together. We had a lot of fun experiences in a place I might never have been able to go to my whole life.”

J-Hope continues, “We went with the concept of 20-something-year-olds on a backpacking trip, but it was like a vacation with close friends enjoying youth. We saw a lot of good sightseeing attractions through activities we planned ourselves. We huddled, took photos, and had a small barbecue party as well.”

During the interview, BTS gets asked how they feel about ending the “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” trilogy and the great success they had with it. Jimin reflects, “We were able to get first place for the first time and perform at the Gymnastics Stadium which we dreamed about. It’s something to be thankful for again and again.”

Suga shows his philosophical side and shares, “I think if there’s a start, there’s also an end. Personally, I think it will be an album that I will never forget for the rest of my life but if you stay stagnant in the same place then rotting occurs. We will come back with even better music and concepts to be able to say goodbye to ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life’ beautifully.”

The members also reveal their feelings regarding pressure to surpass the success of “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” trilogy. Suga confesses, “I think there are no times when I don’t feel that pressure. I think we always have to put forth music that’s better than the last. Our next album and the ones following it are all important albums to us and we are working hard to make them even better.”

Likewise, J-Hope says, “The pressure is great. It’s a lie to say there isn’t any. However, all albums are like that. We have been producing our albums full of our stories and I think a lot of people will like listening to music that fits our unique style in the future as well. BTS is confident we will receive love!”

The members also talk about the honest lyrics about how the cheers and applause will not be theirs forever in “Young Forever.” Rap Monster shares, “I think about the future often. I used to think more about what I could lose rather than what I could gain, so I got a lot of feedback about how I wasn’t enjoying things at the time I should have. I think you can’t help your own nature. I feel like I’m becoming an adult that is more careful as I grow thinking about what I could lose first.”

J-Hope comments, “Just like the lyrics, we know the audience’s cheers and applause will not be for forever. However, we don’t worry because of those lyrics. We tend to share our trivial concerns with each other. We share the belief of consistently communicating and rising up together.”

Jin

BTS then discusses whether their debut dreams have come true. Jin answers, “It’s beyond my expectations. Honestly, I didn’t predict that we would receive this much love from so many people. Sometimes I think about it suddenly before falling asleep. I’m so happy that we are receiving this overwhelming amount of love.”

The members also talk about tough subjects like having differences in opinions about music and individual worries. Suga says, “We try to find common ground through talking amongst ourselves for every worry. We are human so troubles are inevitable but we tend to be able to fix them within a day through conversation. All of us know that each of us is important to each other.”

V hilariously reveals, “I once fought with Jimin over dumplings. We argue over really small things but resolve it right away.”

Jimin also talks about the group’s relationship with Big Hit Entertainment and producer Bang Si Hyuk and says, “[Bang Si Hyuk] makes an effort to communicate with us so he shares a lot of stories. I think agency presidents in general are comfortable yet uncomfortable. We are close but sometimes it’s hard because he has a strong force. I haven’t been to any other company other than Big Hit, but it’s really a company that feels like a family. From the president to all the employees, they are people we are thankful for who work hard to take care of all the agency artists.”

Furthermore, Suga comments, “He is the style to let us do what we want. In the case of a title track it’s hard because it has to stick in your ear and the melody has to be good, but we received a lot of good advice about producing since we were trainees. However, he doesn’t touch B-side tracks and mixtapes. He is rational and not coercive. It’s been seven years since I entered Big Hit, but I have confidence that it has more of a family atmosphere than any other company.”

BTS also comments on growing up from being boys and their hopes for future most beautiful moments in life. J-Hope says, “First of all, the goal is to stay together forever. I hope to achieve more precious results through the seven of us sticking together. My dream is for us to win a Daesang (top prize) and be recognized globally. I know we are still lacking a lot. Everyone has a lot of ambitions regarding music so I want to work harder to reach our goals.”

Jin laughs and shares, “Honestly, I wasn’t at the age to be called a boy when we debuted. Even if we’re not boy scouts I think we will dance like our bodies are breaking on stage like we are now. I want to be a team that doesn’t change on stage despite getting older.”

Jimin also discusses the fact that their group name includes the word ‘boy’ in it. He reveals, “We have talked about taking out ‘sonyeondan’ (boy scouts) and introducing ourselves as just ‘bangtan’ (bulletproof). I think introducing ourselves with our English name ‘BTS’ would be okay too. Before debuting the members determined a Gymnastics Stadium concert and a Daesang as our goals. We fulfilled our concert goal recently, very thankfully. Since the Daesang is the greatest award a singer can get, I hope we can get it at least once. We are consistently working to become singers suitable for that award.”

Each member then relays a message to their fellow members as well as to their fans, ARMY:

Rap Monster: “Now we are able to enjoy things together more rather than suffering. I hope that the members will have lots of thing to smile about in the future as well. Fans are a precious entity that make me want to hurry to my workroom every morning when I wake up even though I get discouraged countless times while working.”

Suga: “We are hardworking and research a lot, to the point that it makes you wonder how there could be such people who consistently grow and advance. It’s a great blessing to be able to be with these cool friends. Also, ARMY is the reason for our existence. I think BTS is able to shine because we have fans. I hope to repay [fans] with better music.”

J-Hope: “I am thankful to ARMY and the members who have suffered for three years together. And Big Hit is also a hit, a hit! Let’s all gather our strength, work hard, and become happier. Your life is a hit.”

Jin: “I’m actually the ‘tsundere’ (cold on the outside warm on the inside) type, so I’m not good at taking care of the people around me. I’m thankful to the members who have adjusted to each other and get along well despite not knowing each other at all at first and inevitably having some thing not match well with each other. I’m more happy these days thanks to having ARMY with whom we can share our happiness with. I want to always give you good news and I support your future as well.”

V: “I am thankful for and proud of our members who sleep less and work hard in order to improve themselves. I am always thankful for ARMY. I hope you understand me having tan skin due to drama filming in the scorching sun.”

Jimin: “We’ve lived together for a very long time, but I want to live together for a very long time in the future as well. Each member is an important person in everyone’s lives. Three years can be considered a short or a long time; I’m thankful to ARMY who stayed by our side even though it wasn’t easy. I want to stay with you for a very long time too.

Jungkook: “I was lacking a lot when I was a trainee but the hyungs helped me and taught me a lot. I am thankful to my hyungs who always look cool and make me not want to fall behind. I will work hard until the day I can catch up to them. ARMY is something that I cannot live without. I’m always thankful and will have them walking only on flower paths (beautiful paths).”

The members also talk about their individual roles, future plans, and more in the full interview.
