BTS have spoken about the ‘pressure’ they feel to present themselves in a ‘perfect’ way to their fans.
Despite their huge fanbase, called ARMY, being more concerned with the members being happy and healthy, rapper RM admits he feels he has to maintain a certain image.
‘It would be untruthful if I said there was no pressure. Still, on stage I want to do really well,’ he told Paper Magazine.
Suga, also a rapper, agreed with him, saying: ‘I would not be telling the truth if I said there’s no pressure. But what can you do? Pressure is also one part of life.’
J-Hope added: ‘I can’t say we don’t [feel pressure]. These days, I feel like I live with a sense of mission.
‘Rather than thinking, “It has to be perfect!,” I do what I have to do, making sure I remember the really important and fundamental things and trust that the results will follow.’
The seven member K-Pop group, made up of RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, Jin, Jimin and V, recently took some time away from the spotlight after their mammoth Love Yourself world tour, and the release of their latest album Map Of The Soul: Persona.
The south Korean group have three nominations at the upcoming American Music Awards for tour of the year, favourite social artist and favourite duo or group – pop/rock.
For Tour of the Year, the boys will be up against Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, and Pink.
Recently vocalist Jin teased BTS’ next comeback during their Love Yourself: Speak Yourself show in Seoul.
After performing the likes of Dionysus and Fake Love, the 26-year-old made the grand announcement.
‘We will hurry and come back with a new album soon. It will be really soon,’ he told the crowd, according to Yonhap.
The star continued: ‘While I performed Epiphany, I was saddened at thinking that this might be the last time I’d sing it. ‘Thinking that “It’s the end”, it was bittersweet.’
