V-BTS bluntly reveals the condition members when facing the Covid-19 pandemic: Depression?

V-BTS shared stories about how the BTS members faced the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Covid-19 pandemic that is happening in the world today has changed many things, including the lives of BTS members.
V BTS tells the story of how depression and anxiety experienced by the members during the Covid-19 pandemic.
This was revealed by V on July 24 on SBS in a special interview with anchor Kim Yong Tae on their evening news program (News 8).
The news program normally airs at 8:00 PM KST but was postponed for an hour due to the Tokyo Olympics.
V tells the story when the world was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, he also produced the single “Blue and Grey”.
The song Blue and Gray that he produced is about the emptiness and loneliness the group feels when the world is closed due to Covid-19.
He said, “No one, including us, could have predicted this situation. Our entire schedule was suddenly cancelled, so we felt a void. All of a sudden, we had depression and anxiety, and I wanted to express those emotions as honestly as possible, so I wrote them all down on a note. Depression and anxiety are expressed as the colors blue and gray.”
During the interview, the BTS members also shared their thoughts on their historic record on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Butter” occupying No.1 for seven weeks before moving on to their new track, “Permission to Dance.”
RM said, “It feels like a dream. The timing was like that, but when we released ‘Butter’, we never imagined that it would hold the first position for seven weeks in a row. After reaching seven weeks, we joked that it would be nice to get a ‘touch stick’, but it’s an honor that it came true.”
Jin said, “I learned it online but it’s all thanks to ARMY. I thank them for listening to our music. We will work harder to repay their love. I love you ARMYs.”
Their new song, “Permission to Dance,” has attracted attention for using international sign language as part of the choreography.
J-Hope said, “Through dances that incorporate international sign languages, we want to give positive energy, comfort, and hope to the whole world.”
Kim Yong Tae referred to the idea that Suga predicted the group’s success, and Suga replied, “I want us to be nominated for a Grammy again. I want to receive the award.”
BTS was recently appointed as special presidential envoy to South Korea as part of President Moon Jae In’s public diplomacy initiative.
As part of this effort, BTS will attend the 75th United Nations General Assembly in New York in September.
RM said, “We are part of the millennial generation and we can say that we grew up together with today’s younger generation. We want to express what we feel and learn through the process. We also directly and indirectly experienced social impacts such as economic and global crises while supervising our parents. Although we are lacking in many ways compared to the dangers facing 2021, we want to do what we can as special envoys and at the UN General Assembly. It is a heavy responsibility, but we live it with a happy heart. We will go and do what we can and do our best to complete our task before returning home.”
Asked if they felt pressure from their success, Jimin said, “Rather than us feeling like we need to achieve something, we sometimes have a hard time because we don’t know how to repay our fans. We exist because of our fans and viewers, but when we feel we can’t return that love enough, our hearts feel heavy.”
Asked if he has individual goals, Jungkook said, “I’m the type of person who wants to do a lot of things. I really like what I’m doing now, so apart from my goals and dreams as a singer, there’s nothing in particular that I want to achieve on my own. I want to meet our fans, ARMY. That’s my dream right now.”
Jungkook also talked about the time he wanted to let things go after things didn’t go according to plan, and gain strength from fans and members.
Suga added, “Falling is scary, but landing isn’t. I think the difference is that once you land, you can take off again. Even if it’s futile, as long as it lands instead of falling, we can prepare to fly again. I think these are the perfect words for our situation, so I can relate to that in the song [‘Permission to Dance’].”
