BTS “Break the Internet: BTS” Paper Magazine Cover

BTS sat down with PAPER Magazine back in 2019 and talked about their lives, hopes and dreams for the future. PAPER Magazine described BTS as “Each member of BTS is a multifaceted artist in his own right. RM (Kim Nam-joon, 25), an agile rapper and hip-hop prodigy, serves as the group’s sagacious de facto leader who, thanks to his English-speaking skills, often acts as a translator for his bandmates when abroad. Thoughtful and fierce, Suga (Min Yoon-gi, 26) is a skilled yet humble record producer and songwriter who has worked on tracks for other K-pop idols like Epik High and Heize, and angel-voiced Jin (Kim Seok-jin, 26), a.k.a. “Mr. Worldwide Handsome,” is a sentimental songwriter.

Jimin (Park Ji-min, 24) is an elegant dancer and lyricist whose delicate vocal style is chills-inducing; V (Kim Tae-hyung, 23) is a talented actor and deeply soulful vocalist; Jungkook (Jeon Jung-kook, 22), the group’s shy yet strong “golden” maknae (youngest member), is well-regarded for his impressive songwriting talent and for making short, insightful documentaries chronicling the group’s journey; and playful J-Hope (Jung Ho-seok, 25) boasts explosive rapping and dancing skills.”

BTS went ahead to answer a few questions regarding their personal life and careers. They spoke about the challenges they faced and how they overcame them. Read FULL article
