On February 18, BTS held a press conference ahead of their “2017 BTS LIVE TRILOGY EPISODE III THE WINGS TOUR” at Gocheok Sky Dome.
The group was asked about their thoughts on their new track “Spring Day” getting No. 1 on music charts. They answered, “We always feel excited and are full of anticipation whenever we release an album and reveal songs. Before releasing the track we spent time chatting with fans live and we listened to it together. We were really moved when we saw that our song continued to stay in the No. 1 spot for 24 hours.”
BTS continued, “Since ‘WINGS’ received a really good response and our new song is supplementary we felt pressured but we also thought that we had to work hard. We were really moved. We’re thankful.”
Rap Monster further explained about BTS’s newest album and said, “This album contains 14 songs that were in our previous ‘WINGS’ and has four new songs for a total of 18 songs. ‘WINGS’ showed despair and rebellious youth within temptation while this time we wanted to show hope and comfort from a supplementary story. We wanted to show the rebirth of youths who came from strife and despair.”
