K-Pop group BTS sat down with Good Morning America (GMA) for an exclusive interview where they talked about making music during the pandemic and resonating a message of hope through new song releases.
Sharing what they’ve been up to in the past couple of months, RM said: “We’re just actually doing our best. We just had our virtual concert. You know, studios, making music, that’s all we could do.”
RM went on to share how the release of the album BE as well as the group’s first full English language song became possible amid these difficult times.
“This album BE and the single ‘Dynamite’ wouldn’t be here without the pandemic ‘cause if there’s no pandemic, we would be on tour — going to the stadium,” RM stated.
On using their music to bring hope to the world, Jimin said: “With ‘BE,’ we want to deliver a message of hope to the world, but in a different tone and manner from ‘Dynamite.'” Jin then added: “Our new single ‘Life Goes On’ reflects our emotions and thoughts in the moment.”
Having been used to filling almost every stadium, two of the group’s members —RM and V — said they feel sad about the fact that they can’t be with their fans right now. Jungkook then said: “Can’t wait to meet you guys again, ARMY!”
V reassured their fans that they won’t stop reaching out and connecting to them in whatever way they can. “We miss ARMY so much. We connect with them on WeVerse, but we want to meet them in person," V said.
RM then said: “See you in America, someday!”
