[Article] 170516 [12th Anniversary Special Edition - Exclusive Interview①] BTS "The last 4 years were so spectacle to the point we can't remember the previous 20 years"




Seven member group BTS's (Rap Monster, Suga, J Hope, Jungkook, Jin, V, Jimin)  2017 was glorious than any other's. With the sensitivity of the early 20s that perfectly fits their age group, they completely swept the hearts of the "youths" from 10s to 20s. The people who swept off their feet didn't necessarily limit to Koreans. Fans around the world go wild because of their voice and body moves, and we're sure the number would be increasing every minute. This is the period when the youths of the people who sing about "youth" shine the brightest.

To celebrate the 12th anniversary of "Sports Kyunghyang", we selected group BTS who is currently busy with their second world tour concert "WINGS TOUR" as our interviewer. BTS perfected their musicality, and star quality as an artist and captured their identity in their music through their album "WINGS" which released end of last year and "WINGS Extension" which released earlier this year. Their global influence is proved by their entry in the US Billboard chart, ranking in iTunes charts around the world, and the number of the audience attending their tour concerts. And these boys are preparing their entry to the US Billboard Music Awards. BTS who is currently on their world tour expressed their present, past and future with words deep from their hearts during the exclusive interview with "Sports Kyunghyang". What other groups than BTS could express "Sports Kyunghyang" that is still young and fresh?

- Nice to meet you. You have finished about half of the <WINGS Tour> now. What are your thoughts and feelings?

Rap Monster: "It's been already...! My body is tired but my heart is happy. Every time I listen to the cheerings of the fans around the world, I feel an unexplainable joy. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to feel such emotion and I hope my members and I stay healthy until the end of the remaining tour period."

Jungkook: "I meet the eyes of many fans during the tour and the more we perform, I feel "I should really work harder to unite with our fans". Of course, the fun I felt since the beginning of the tour hasn't changed even now. I think I should improve my skills more to show you improvements."

- This is your second tour. We believe you would feel a little bit less pressured. What is the new type of fun you've experienced during this world tour?

Suga: "With our venues and number of audience increasing in size, we often try to think about the flow of the show and it's really fun to find this flow."

Jimin: "I felt a lot of disappointment after the first tour because it felt like everything happened really fast. However, I'm able to actually feel "the concert is fun"."

- Your schedules have drastically increased compared to the first tour. We believe every country would feel different with different vibes.

Jin: "There are fans who quietly listen t our songs, and there are fans who sing along with us. But the fact that all audience around the world enjoy our music and stage remains the same."

J Hope: "Since South and North American countries are places we can't visit very often, they really respond to us loudly. They sing along with us, they even dance with us and thanks to their energy, I think we receive more energy from them. Right now we're continuing our shows in the Southeast Asian countries and even their response is indeed fiery."

- Were there any funny episodes during the tour?

J Hope: "It's great because we get to enjoy the delicious local foods of each country. But we have a few members who are sensitive to food so I feel a little bad for them since I think I'm the only one eating the food deliciously."

V: "I think a funny episode will happen soon. Our members have been thinking of creating a funny episode. Please anticipate!"

- You have achieved many things in less than 4 years. If you could give us a short summary?

Rap Monster: "I think, 'We have really ran diligently. The last 4 years have been so spectacle that I can't remember the previous 20 years"

Suga: "We only ran forward during the 4 years. We really lived hard that it's been so hectic."

- What does the fanclub "ARMY" mean to BTS?

Jin: "They are a part of us. We were able to exist because ARMY existed. I think we're nothing if we didn't have ARMY."

Suga: "I'm happy because it looks like we're both giving and receiving good influence. The fans receive energy from us by watching us, and we receive the same amount energy by watching our fans. Thank you very much for giving us good influence whenever we're tired and exhausted."

V: "We're able to travel around the world and perform because of ARMY and I think we work harder because you guys watch everything about us."
