One of the members, RM at the event expressed;

I always thought that BTS was different from other groups, but the problem with K-pop and the whole idol system is that they don’t give you time to mature. You have to keep producing music and keep doing something.

On his part, Jimin stated;

We can’t help but think of our fans no matter what, we want to be the kind of artists that are remembered by our fans. I think now we’re starting to think about what kind of artists we each want to be remembered by our fans.

He stressed;

I think that’s why we’re going through a rough patch right now, we’re trying to find our identity and that’s an exhausting and long process.

Then, J-Hope said;

I think we should spend some time apart to learn how to be one again. I hope you don’t see this as a negative thing, and see it as a healthy plan. I think BTS will become stronger that way.
