When you go online on the internet, you can easily find BTS everywhere. BTS has achieved massive success in the past few years, not to mention BTS accomplishments during the coronavirus pandemic. Although they are genuinely grateful for their success, the BTS members are “sad” as well. What is wrong with them?
BTS accomplishment during the COVID-19 pandemic
As we all know that this coronavirus pandemic has changed how we live and how musicians work. Many concerts are postponed or even canceled, including the BTS world tour.
However, BTS still tried to give the best for their fans. Started from their anniversary celebration with BTS FESTA 2020, Bang Bang Con the Live virtual concert, to their newest song, Dynamite.
Within 24 hours after its premiere, Dynamite broke multiple records on youTube, Spotify, and iTunes. Dynamite ends up at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Why BTS Members are Sad
Despite their gratefulness for achieving so much in their career as a Kpop group, the BTS members also feel “sad” for not getting to see ARMYs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On March 10, RM shared through VLive that he felt disappointed and raged like a madman because of the “Map of the Soul: 7” concert tour in Seoul cancelation.
RM said, “At times when I was at home these past two weeks, I would feel so much anger building up like I was going crazy. All of a sudden, I’d start yelling and feel so much anger because I was feeling dejected. I was upset. I was upset, and I felt like there wasn’t much we could do realistically.”
Celebrating the Success with ARMYS
Following a record-breaking 2019, K-Pop band @BTS_twt reached new heights with their first English-language song ‘Dynamite’ on the U.S. Billboard charts. But they wish they could celebrate with their fans https://t.co/lvTdCaHxJw pic.twitter.com/54CzyBcZKO— Reuters (@Reuters) September 12, 2020
“It feels like real, but still like a little unreal at the same time because we cannot meet our fans, we cannot go to some kind of award or performance,” BTS leader, RM, told Reuters. “It’s like, we’re so grateful but … we’re so sad at the same time,” he added.
In the interview with Popcrush, Suga admitted, “It made us feel very powerless, and it was frustrating. These were things we couldn’t change even if we tried… It felt like we were running this whole time, and suddenly we tripped and had fallen. We were sad that we couldn’t meet our fans.”
Healing Power of Dynamite
In the interview, V added that everyone is going through a difficult time these days. He said, “To people who are going through a difficult time, we hope Dynamite will give you a lot of energy and healing.”
“Please, be happy”
According to Jimin, the Dynamite was released because “we want people to be happy.” J-Hope stated a similar thing, “This is a very fun and cheerful song. Because the song is cheerful, we will also try to be cheerful and as energetic as possible. Please stay safe. Wear your masks! Don’t get sick. And please be happy.”
“Feel the positive vibes”
In an interview with Vogue, when BTS was preparing for VMAs performance, RM said, “We need the positive vibes right now, and we want to give the fans the energy, recharge the battery. That’s why we came up with this song, Dynamite, as a single.”
