Even While Promoting Solo, BTS’s Jimin Can’t Help But Promote His Group
BTS‘s Jimin truly proved his love for his group in a recent interview with Vogue Korea.
BTS are known to sincerely love each other like no other. Everyone who knows them says that they are really friends.
So, it should come as no surprise that they would promote their members even during solo promotions. That’s exactly what Jimin did.
When the interviewer asked Jimin about his upcoming debut solo album FACE, Jimin didn’t just hype his own project. He also encouraged everyone to listen to RM‘s solo album Indigo!
I tried looking deep within myself and being as honest as possible with this album. Much of it’s based on my own experiences, but I hope everyone who listens finds it relatable and comforting. I’ve said somewhere that the songs RM wrote for his solo album, Indigo, which was released late last year, made me want to go for a bike ride. If you listen to RM’s album while cycling to your favorite coffee shop and then listen to my album while you’re there, it’ll be a perfect day. I promise!
He also spoke about BTS’s iconic Citi Field concert when asked about a New York City memory. Jimin said he hopes people think of “singing and dancing along with our fans” when hearing “BTS.”
I still vividly remember our performance at the Citi Field stadium in New York City, in 2018, during BTS’ Love Yourself tour. It was a massive concert. I still get goose bumps thinking about how over 40,000 fans from all over the world came together to sing our songs with us, all in the original Korean lyrics. Singing and dancing along with our fans is what I want people to think of first when they hear the name BTS.
Similarly, when talking about the “power of music,” Jimin shared how BTS’s music emphasizes love not only for one another but everyone in the world. He added that he believes his fellow members’ solo music is comforting.
I wholeheartedly agree when people say BTS’ music emphasizes how much more we should love one another and try to be inclusive in this world. I find a lot of comfort and courage in what the other guys have written and sung about as well. I think the greatest strength of music is its power to comfort us. Don’t you think so?
He continued to talk about BTS even when asked about advice he gives to himself. Jimin explained that being surrounded by great, supportive people such as BTS makes him realize how fortunate he is.
I try to always be conscious of the fact that I’m truly lucky and happy because I’m surrounded by people who help me shine, including the other members of BTS, the group’s staff and crew, and my fans. The more I tell myself this, the more encouraged I feel. I get an incredible amount of energy from the combination of the sense of responsibility I have as a BTS member, the happiness I get from spending time with my groupmates and the gratitude I feel toward my rock-solid fans.
Finally, on the topic of BTS’s “Chapter 2,” Jimin cheered for his members. He’s not only rooting for their solo projects but being inspired by them.
I’m rooting for my groupmates in their new solo careers. Now that we’ve set sail separately on these new adventures, I can’t help but feel anxious and terrified from time to time. In those moments, I think of my fellow group members and try to find strength in them. Seeing the other BTS members find their calling and try to develop themselves further, I naturally feel inspired and motivated to achieve my own goals as well, until the day we all meet again.
We all need a loving and supportive friend like Jimin!
