Watch: BTS Says H.O.T And SECHSKIES Influenced Their Debut + Dances To Their Debut Songs
BTS members Jin and Jimin appeared on the October 23 broadcast of JTBC’s “Please Take Care Of My Refrigerator” with H.O.T’s Tony Ahn and SECHSKIES’s Kim Jae Duk.
MC Kim Sung Joo praised BTS for their latest album sales records and Tony Ahn and Kim Jae Duk agreed that the numbers were impressive. Kim Jae Duk also complimented BTS for their eye-catching performances and choreography. Then, Kim Sung Joo asked if it was true that H.O.T and SECHSKIES had a large influence on BTS’s debut.
Jimin responded, “Our debut song ‘No More Dream’ has similar themes [to H.O.T’s ‘Warrior’s Descendant’ and SECHSKIES’s ‘School Byeolgok’]. We tried to tell the story of our generation, so I think we were largely influenced.”
Jimin also that BTS had actually done a cover of their seniors’ songs on air before. With the request of the MC, Jin, Jimin, Tony Ahn, and Kim Jae Duk recreated the performance in a cross-generational collaboration.
