The South Korean boy-band BTS has become one of the biggest global acts with international fame, awards and collaborations. The K-pop band has a loyal fan-base which is known as ARMY. BTS consists of seven members, leader RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin and Jungkook. The members communicate with their fans on various social media accounts, but especially Weverse, which is especially built for fans of artists represented by the Bighit Entertainment agency. Recently, BTS leader RM took to the platform to pen a lengthy note for his fans. The singer said that he has started the habit of journaling but since he did not want to pick up a pen, he is expressing his thoughts on the app.
RM started the note by saying that it is getting “harder” for him to write lengthy letters, but if he doesn’t do so he will “forever forget the way to do it.” The singer, according to translations by fans, wrote that he wants everyone he loves to be in peace for as long as possible.
He further wrote in Korean, “And to this level, I myself have wandered considerably and vast in search of this feeling of safety and peace/ease and comfort. But I [now better understand] that people — not excluding myself, of course — normally cannot aid but [innately] motivation a minor bit of drama/thrill [in their lives]. It’s like an disease, experience protected and at ease for a second, only to be shaken after again.”
He also recounted his early years in Seoul, the capital of the country. “Much time has passed because I very first came to Seoul at 17 yrs previous, But at situations, I even now get a bizarre emotion that very little has adjusted at all. After all, I am only 28 years outdated, and I continue to have to have really a several many years until I can become the strong particular person I have extended worked in direction of turning into,” the excerpt read.
The leader concluded his note, saying, “The winter that employed to startle me, arriving all at after and with a perception of worry, has disappeared into days earlier. And the times have cleared into a nice period for getting walks. Let us meet after the breezy days start off to get a minor hotter. As usually, I will await that working day though generating new music and trying to keep up with my bodily and psychological wellbeing. Hehe, I miss you!”
