On 12th September, BTS attended the prestigious Grammy Museum for a special event entitled “A Conversation With BTS”.
With over 200 attendees, BTS are the first KPOP group in history to attend this renowned venue. In an in-depth sit down interview, BTS talk about their music, fans and current success.
Introduced by Scott Goldman as” The most successful K-pop singers on the U.S. charts”, BTS were firstly asked about the difference between performing at the LA Staple Centre vs their 2017 US tour:
“I think a major difference is that we were able to meet our fans across four performances with music from our newer releases.” He also stated, “Many fans passionately responded to our music and cheer for us, and that’s what made our stage so meaningful.” – J-Hope
When it came to their creation process and musical success, Suga answered:
“I believe the fact that we express our own thoughts and feelings in our music is what has been the driving force that has helped us get where we are now,” and “I think we’ve been able to create good music across a variety of genres because we worked closely in tandem with our agency.”
RM also added:
“Since our debut, we’ve created albums under the themes of school, youth, and loving myself. Our albums have also given us the chance to look back on ourselves and think about the meaning of love again.”
Jimin then spoke about the members’ bond with each other in their musical process:
“The members always create such great melodies and lyrics. When we reach a moment during the recording process when we have differing opinions, we all get together and have long conversations. We make the effort to resolve the situation in a good direction.”
BTS were then asked about the feelings about topping the Billboard 200 charts :
“We feel a sense of responsibility and pressure from all of our achievements. But we will work hard to maintain our current hardworking attitude, both through our music and our actions.”
