BTS’ fame is such that there is no doubt that the K-Pop group is not only one of the most popular in today’s time, but also one of the most iconic of all time, with Jin, J-Hope, Jimin, Jungkook, V, Suga, and RM enjoying fame, fans, and impact that spans every ethnic, cultural, and geographical demographic known to us. As a result, it’s no surprise that ARMY can’t get enough of the group and make it a point to keep up with every new development.
BTS’s RM speaks out regarding the group’s break after FESTA 2022.
While BTS FESTA 2022 delivered on its promises, it was a bittersweet experience for ARMY, as the K-Pop group declared an indefinite break following the event, stating that while they are not disbanding, they need to focus on themselves and their respective careers. “For me, it was like BTS was within my grasp until ON and Dynamite,” BTS leader RM said in a statement to the fans regarding their sabbatical. “However, after Butter and Permission To Dance, I had no idea what kind of band we were.”
The truth, on the other hand, could be quite different. BTS is taking a break due to internal strife, for which RM is primarily responsible because he was calling all the shots and the others thought they were playing second fiddle to him, particularly V aka Kim Taehyung, Jungkook, and jJ-Hope, who believe they are far more popular than him but are being dealt a short hand. Our source adds that they are unlikely to reconcile because the friction has been building for some time.
BTS’s RM believes the group has ‘lost its way.’ “It used to be crucial for me to send out a message whenever I wrote lyrics, but that was no longer the case. I’m not sure what kind of story we should tell at this point. I continued feeling stuck inside myself and wanted to shake it off by taking time off, but I kept putting it off because something or other kept cropping up for BTS, and the world wouldn’t let me. We’ve lost our way, and I’d want to take a moment to reflect. I’m concerned I’m not living up to the expectations of my admirers. I’m also concerned that because I was more fluent in English, I began speaking for the group, which made me feel even more guilty,” added the singer-songwriter.
