RM Thought BTS Would Peak In This Era, But We’re Glad He Was Wrong

He opened up about BTS’s journey.

Every artist reaches their peak, but just when it seems like BTS has reached theirs, they soar even higher!


At 2018 MAMA in Hong Kong, Jin tearfully confessed that BTS nearly disbanded at the start of 2018. If they had disbanded, they never would have embarked on what, up until 2019, was their most successful year ever.


So far in 2019, BTS has sold out their first-ever stadium tour, released the best-selling album in K-Pop history, launched their BTS WORLD game and a new docu-series, and touched millions of lives. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Right now, BTS’s popularity shows no sign of waning.


Back in 2016, the world had no idea what BTS would achieve, and neither did RM. In episode 2 of Bring the Soul, he revealed that he thought BTS’s career would peak during the WINGS era.


“To be honest, for me,” he said. “I thought there will be nothing after ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears’. I figured that would be our peak.” 


Thankfully, he was wrong! With each new era, ARMY‘s love for BTS’s music only grows stronger.
