Suga - Every day feels like a dream. We're busy and hectic but we're happy.
Jimin - I still can't believe that we won at the Billboard Music Awards. All I can think about is how grateful we are to our fans who support us and many others. I wish we could grow more as much as they support us.

- Are there any changes or new things happening after the winning?

J Hope - Hm... I think the modifier attached before our name has changed (laughs) Many people around us call us "Singer who won the Billboard award" (laughs)
Jungkook - It feels like the stage we're performing has become bigger so I have more worries and I feel more pressure.

- Are you able to feel your hot popularity in the overseas?

V - We get to meet a lot of fans around the world while we're on a world tour and when we're on stage, I am able to feel "our fans really like us a lot". And I feel so proud and grateful when the tour tickets get sold out.
Rap Monster - Gratefully, I'm able to feel it now. I was really surprised especially when we were at this year's "Billboard Music Awards". We're very grateful to fans around the world who send us love that must not be simple.

- Your encounter with various artists at the Billboard Music Awards received a lot of attention

V - The Chainsmokers was an artist I always liked and I was so happy to be able to speak with them directly.
Jungkook - I can't choose a specific artist because everything was memorable.
Suga - Meeting the Chainsmokers was memorable. I think it would be fun to work with them.

V - Drake
Jungkook - Justin Bieber, Charlie Puth, Troye Sivan
Rap Monster- Younha noona, senior Lee Sora, Tablo hyung are still my bests. These days, I think Ahn Jiyoung from Bolbbalgan4 is very cool too. It would be a great honor if I could work with Drake or Nas among foreign artists someday.

Jin - Sandeul
Jimin - I still want to work harder with my members for now.
