BTS recently had an interview with Star News to talk about some memorable moments, their thoughts on their success, and more.

The members also talked about their thoughts on being associated with “walking down a royal road” considering their success.

Suga: “To be called walking down a royal road, it’s not like we didn’t have hardships. Every moment is memorable to me.”
J-Hope: “I still cannot forget our debut stage. I think people are saying we are walking down a royal road because we had a start.”
Jimin: “There were a lot of different events. We learned and became thankful through a lot of experiences and we also learned how to be happy. That’s why I always find the present to be precious. I want to become a team that is able to say any time in the future that this moment is the most happiest.”

Jin: “I think about whether or not I will be able to perform the choreography we are doing now and if I will be able perform a concert when I am in my 30s and 40s.”
Suga: “My biggest worry is that we have to keep making good music and I want to do well but I wonder if I will be able to.”
J-Hope: “I am curious about how long this happiness and people’s love for us will continue.”
V: “I want to be a filial son to my parents as soon as possible.”
Jimin: “What to do to make BTS a cool team. What to do to make everyone happy. What to do for fans to be able to listen to good songs. These are my worries.”
Jungkook: “These days I’m worried how how I should live so that others would say I lived well.”
Moving on from their worries, the group revealed that their goal for 2017 is to win a “daesang award and become a global singer.”
