[Article] 161014 [XP Interview] BTS replies to "Infinity Challenge" Park Myungsoo's love call!






Group BTS continues to top the charts with their latest song "Blood Sweat & Tears". After successfully lining the music charts with their new songs which released on 10th, BTS is still remaining in the top ranks of music charts, topped US iTunes Top Album Chart and they were the first K pop group to reach 10 million views in the shortest time. They are literally marching with records. And after watching Yoo Jaesuk X EXO stage on MBC "Infinity Challenge", Park Myungsoo sent out a love call to BTS. The group is mentioned many times every day.





On 13th, BTS sat down with Xportsnews at Mnet "MCountdown" waiting room to share their thoughts about their first comeback stage, their gratitude for being able to set records and to send a thank you message to "Infinity Challenge" Park Myungsoo for sending them a love call. The following are a series of questions and answers with BTS.





◆How do you feel about your first comeback stage?




(J Hope) We're really excited to perform at a music show in 5 months. We really want to show our stage soon. I wish we could show the results of our efforts made with our blood, sweat and tears.





(Jin) We got the opportunity to perform "21st century girl" on stage. I'm very happy to be able to meet our fans at music show after a long time. I'm grateful to the fans who came to support us during early morning pre-recording.





◆You guys attempted concept with your new song





(Jimin) I think this is going to be the first time seeing the concept properly on stage. We wish we could express them as coolly as we've imagined to. I hope we could bring out sexy charms to fit the concept of our song.





◆You are setting new records every day. What was the most pleasant achievement?





(V) It was our first time seeing our songs line up on music chart. We were happy to see our previous title track "FIRE" enter the music chart again and I thought "Our fans are really supporting us a lot.".





(Rap Monster) I personally believe that we will do well in other countries only if we do well in Korea. I was honestly worried before our comeback because in reality boy groups don't show much power on major music charts like Melon. I always worried about things like "what should we do for the public to listen to our music?", "what could we do to climb on the music charts?". 3 days have passed since we've released our new album but our songs still remain in top 10 and our results are better compared to our previous album. That means a lot to us, And we are also happy about the result we achieved in US iTunes chart. We can't believe it's real at the moment but winning the 1st place in the biggest music market in the world makes us happy. Lastly, it's how quickly we were able to reach 10 million views on Youtube. We heard that we are the second fastest artist to reach the record after senior PSY. Since we are accomplishing good results quickly, we're happy because it feels like we're achieving something new one at a time.





◆ What could  be the secret behind these good results and favorable reviews?





(Suga) During our 3 years, we gradually showed what we can do. I believe that our growth is reasonable to the public and to our fans. Honestly, I'm sure there would had been people who didn't feel comfortable about our musical colors or our team name but I think we tried to convince them little by little. We need to convince them more. That is our duty.





(Rap Monster) I think K-POP has turned into a special and unique culture. I think there's a complex factor that can't be explained through music and performance. I'm sure there are other reasons why people from other countries like us but I think they like to see us working hard and doing our best to do music.





◆What was the most memorable good review you heard while you tried to persuade the public and not your fans?





(Jin) Honestly we can't help but focus more on our fans' responses. Most comments are written by our fans so it's hard for us to personally listen to the public's opinion. If I just look solely at my friends, my friend's friend doesn't know any song by BTS or when we made our comeback and this is the truth.





(Jimin) There's a review that I liked. I carefully watched the responses for the first time since our new album is doing well. Then I saw a comment that said "I'm not a fan of BTS but I really accept that this (album) is good.". I was happy. I thought "Will Rap Monster hyung feel less distressed this time?".





(Suga) I always see comments like "This song isn't better than their previous song". During "I NEED U" and "RUN" we received good responses but for "FIRE" it was "not so good" or comments like "I liked FIRE but I don't like this song.".  I think the public hasn't still opened their hearts for us. It's our duty to capture our fans and the public.





◆ Recently Park Myungsoo revealed on MBC "Infinity Challenge" that he would like to perform with BTS on stage.





(J Hope) I'm a big fan of "Infinity Challenge". I was happy when our group name was mentioned on a show I always enjoy watching to. I thought "BTS has grown so much" and this made me happy. Actually we met Park Myungsoo many times. We met him at the airport and he's a person who really loves music. He also gave musical advice to us.





(Suga) I heard he has a workspace at his home. His very passionate about music. I think he is an amazing person.

1. It (collaboration stage) was only possible because it was God Yoo... +1032 -105





2. I like you Myungsoo hyung but if you are going to complain and then get mad during practices I think it's better for you not to do this (project)+543 -35





3. BTS didn't even say they want to appear on Infinity Challenge. They just talked about their comeback and this was just a short question yet the journalist is attracting Attention Seekers with the title. I thought BTS talked only about Infinity Challenge during this interview. +122 -5






4. They just said they are fans of Infinity Challenge. How could you call that a reply to his love call... +88 -1





5. Park Myungsoo mentioned them first on Infinity Challenge and said he wants to collaborate with them and BTS just replied they're happy to be mentioned so why are you leaving negative comments? γ…‹γ…‹+106 -8

  13. Lol these snakeus are always pressed, always trying to make their oppas relevant. XD The ARMY is clearly only praising BTS with a fact and did not slander any other groups or made comparisons.

    Yeah we never bring other artist when we say "bts takes a step from the bottom to reach where they're now." Even without anythings that will attack other artist. We just simply proud on bts without the eager to bring another artist yet you guys just go blind without taking time to read what did we really gonna say when we said that.

  15. S/he must be boring

  16. No comment / my fellow army did a great job over there πŸ‘†πŸ‘†

    ReplyDelete
  17. Honestly if you see someone praising their faves and feel like it's some kind of attack on someone else, that's YOUR problem and something YOU need to sort out for yourself. No one is obligated to add a disclaimer of "everyone else worked hard too and is deserving of praise!!!" before saying good things about someone. Ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Why we must praise other groups when we mention BTS tho? We are 'army' ofc we will only talk about BTS. Why we should care about other groups? I have seen stupid people hating on armys because most of us arent multifandom, what kinda logic is that?
    Also they need armys to talk and praise about their own faves when they dont even do that? I cant relate.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Antis over here are no different lmao. I've seen antis get upset at Armys saying "Our boys worked so hard and did well" before. The similarities are uncanny. Try being happy that BTS are doing so well internationally and see how much salt you're met with by fans of groups you neither mentioned nor alluded to, nor even invited just by saying "Wow BTS are doing so well internationally. #26 on BB200 is really something"

    I'm so fed up with stuff like this

  21. It's not ARMY who ridiculous, but OP comment is the one who ridiculous. Tsk tsk..

    ReplyDelete
  22. To all talented ARMYs out there:
    WE NEED OUR OWN CYPHER SERIES!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. because they can't stop talking about BTS even when they have their fave groups they think ARMY is the same but when we talk about BTS we don't even think about other groups.

    ReplyDelete
  24. So what if ARMY praise BTS by saying something like that? Now we can't even praise our faves without antis thinking that we're putting down other groups? If it has nothing to do with you, you don't need to make a big deal out of it. Once again, they are always complaining that ARMY is everywhere and always talking about BTS but they're the ones always bringing up ARMY & BTS every where they go. Geesh, these closet Army's need to either come out and accept that they love BTS or just stop talking crap about BTS/ARMY overall.
    All in all, this OP need to just stop and go do something useful with his/her life instead of living a hateful life.

    ReplyDelete
  25. lmao this is what we called inferiority complex. idg why antis or other fans in general think we hype bts too much, i mean isn't that what a fan is?? if i like a group ofc i'm gonna hype them up who else is there to talk about when i only stan bts???? they love to twist our words and make us the bad guys, what's funny is that antis trended so many hateful hashtags against bts, open for all to see but no one is defending us lol. one immature fan makes a stupid comment, our whole fandom is bashed, yep ok totally logical.

    ReplyDelete
  26. PREACH I'm so sick of this mentality that we shouldn't speak up for shit. Are we only allowed to apologize? There's obviously difference between confidence and arrogance, but now we're not even allowed to be proud of their!! proven!! popularity!! on our own articles?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't know why our fandom is always singled out. Other fandoms can praise their favs without getting their words twisted. Well, let's continue to show who the more mature person is in these kind of arguments.

    ReplyDelete
  28. They don't want Bangtan to get any praises that's why πŸ˜’ We have to praise their idols but can't praise our own lol haters really got no logic. Nor a brain πŸ˜‚

    ReplyDelete
  29. Antis everywhere are the same. Antis in my country, international antis, or k-antis. They all the same. Even we can't praise our artist without they think we trying to drag others. We arent mention others idol/artis but They always twist our word. Why cant army praise bts, we are army, of course we only care about bts. Why we have to care about others artist (at least we never attacks and drag others).
    I'm pretty sure even when bangtan breath antis will attack too because of they think bangtan stole their idol oxygen πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

    ReplyDelete
  30. "Hi there dyslexic" lol they really seem like they are. They always fabricate and twist things. Well that's what all haters in this crazy world do. They lie, spread rumours, make you look like you're the bad one when you didn't do anything. They're all the same πŸ˜’πŸ˜‘

    ReplyDelete
  31. No comment 😢

    crazy people will always be crazy.. you start responding n you become as crazy.. im not crazy

    ReplyDelete
  32. i don't know how to phrase this but wouldn't bts be a good example of a small agency group hitting it big out of their generation of idol groups? like i can only think of one other idol group that's managed this in recent times. not saying that infinite, beast, and b1a4 don't exist but it's been a while since a group from a no-name company has climbed their way to the top. why can't armys be proud of that?

  38. Thumbs up fpr K-Armys and others who defend our K-Armys too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ya, that's how we promote our boys. You see.. fandoms are a marketer to their own kpop group. When we make those headlines, I'm sure many will be attracted to read the articles. Even I'm an ARMY, me too gotten attracted to read articles made by us and by news when I read something like BTS FROM NOWHERR TO SOMEWHERE or BTS FROM ROOKIES AWARD TO DAESANG AWARD. That's how a marketer promote their product. Did we ever say your boys or your girls don't do better than us? No, because the news are about our boys. Why should we include other people?

    Ah, I think after this, if editors wanna write something or ARMY wanna write their own articles about Bangtan, they should end up with, 'meanwhile, other group are doing their best too. Good luck, Hallyu Star!' Or something like that? 😏

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yeah I've seen this kind of antis in my country. They feel attacked by us just because this kind of comment πŸ‘‰ "BTS you've work hard"

  41. I dont care about your opinion11 January 2017 at 15:05

    well, Im proud for SNAKEUS, dont get me wrong ARMY's. because snakeus have the time to watch BTS videos, vines, fantalk etc. So it means that they are spending their time towards BTS and ARMY's more than their own fandom. Well, I guess their fandom is boring and nothing else to do? While us ARMY's are busy promoting, defending and laughing watching all the meme's of our babies/. I just dont understand SNAKEUS have time to spread rumors about BTS and ARMY., why dont they just use it to their own idols and fandom instead? Whatever they say., SNAKEUS CANNOT DESTROY THE STRONG AND SOLID RELATIONSHIP OF BTS AND ARMY, WE WILL KEEP BREAKING RECORDS LOCALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6036eca6d739d98948a36d548c1a48b724de5628fcdaba98840fa1f85e12430c.gif

  42. Wow, even armys simple congratulatory phrases for BTS gets antis panties in a twist....

    They really are feeling threatened...

    Guys praise your own idol. Just like how we dont expect non fans to praise ours. Do your work as a fan instead of shitting on others positive behavior!

    ReplyDelete
  43. It's just jealousy and stupidity which made them (haters) to twist that words in their head and then claiming it as a fact.

    Army : "BTS worked really hard! They slowly climb up to where they are now from the bottom!"

    Haters : "Other groups had it easy? Only BTS worked really hard? Other groups are lazy? What is Army saying?!!"

    And mind you, the stuff that haters think is only in their heads, which weren't even said by Army. Of course, the next thing that happened is the haters claiming that Army was the one who said the second part.
