RM, on portrayals of masculinity: “The labels of what being masculine is, is an outdated concept. It is not our intention to break it down. But if we are making a positive impact, we are very thankful. We live in an age where we shouldn’t have those labels or have those restrictions.”

Suga, on whether they’re worried about their fans’ reactions to their romantic lives: “I have a hard time understanding this question. The ARMY is a diverse group. In this hypothetical situation, some may accept it, some may not. Whether it’s dating, or something else, they’re all individuals, and they will understand things differently.”

RM, on their success in contrast to the increased wave of anti-Asian violence in America: “We are outliers, and we came into the American music market and enjoyed this incredible success…now, of course, there is no utopia. There’s a light side; there’s always going to be a dark side. The way we think is that everything that we do, and our existence itself, is contributing to the hope for leaving this xenophobia, these negative things, behind. It’s our hope, too, that people in the minority will draw some energy and strength from our existence. Yes, there’s xenophobia, but there are also a lot of people who are very accepting…the fact that we have faced success in the United States is very meaningful in and of itself.”

Jin, on not being able to tour last year: “When we couldn’t go on tour, everybody felt a sense of loss, a sense of powerlessness. And we’re all sad. And it actually took us a while to get over those feelings.”

The group also revealed something very exciting is happening soon.
