For BTS, 2018 was one of their greatest triumphs, but also a time of uncertainty and pressure. After overcoming those struggles, the members welcomed all the joys of 2019.

Up until last year, the members were feeling a bit anxious, and we didn’t have a lot of time to rest. As we moved into the new year, things finally began to settle down.

“The members have now started to feel more secure,” Jimin explained, ” and we’ve been touring while preparing for our album. We also get to rest when we can. I think those were the best parts.”

“Even now I’m very happy. Recently, the members have been telling me, ‘You seem a lot happier, especially this year.’”
