“We are outliers, and we entered the American music market and had this incredible success… Now, of course, there is no utopia,” continues RM. “We also hope that those in the minority will find energy and strength in our existence. Yes, there is xenophobia, but there are also a lot of people who are very tolerant. . . . The fact that we have had success in the United States is very significant in itself. “

“I don’t think I ever really thought about not being part of this group,” Jimin adds at the end of the article. “I can’t imagine what I would do on my own. I think when I’m older and leave my own beard, I would like to think that in the end when I’m too old to dance, I would just like to sit on stage with the other members and sing and engage with the Fans. I think that would be great too. So I would like to continue as long as possible.
