Why was it important to BTS to release this song now? Why this song ahead of the album?

J-Hope then spoke up, talking about the difficult times that everyone around the world was going through, and wanting to release a song that addresses that while communicating their own feelings through the song.

Everything is so different now. We kept asking ourselves how can we share with our fans all the doubts and emotions we have through this period. The answer was, of course, music!

—J-Hope

He then revealed that the group wanted to convey a feeling of solidarity with their fans, and to tell them that “life goes on”.

We wanted to tell them that we also have all these mixed feelings within us, and at the same time, comfort them, that life goes on. “Life Goes On”.
