During the interview, he opened up about his talents, and revealed that he thinks he “doesn’t particularly excel at anything.” (Translation via Soompi.)

“I’m nothing special, and I’m someone who doesn’t particularly excel at anything. Though people around me don’t think of me that way at all…if I even start to say something like this, they’ll say, ‘How can you say that? You’ve accomplished amazing things.’ But I still have a hard time accepting that. If someone were to ask me what sets me apart from other people, I wouldn’t have much to say other than ‘I’m a member of BTS,’” he admitted.

He also addressed his “Worldwide Handsome” nickname, which he says is a joke.

“Honestly, there are lots of people who are more handsome than I am. ‘Worldwide Handsome’ is a joke I make for laughs. It’s also true that there are lots of people who sing and dance better than I do. But because other people see me as better than I really am, I work hard to try to live up to how they see me,” he explained.

“You know how everyone is born with a certain talent? I think my talent is that when something unpleasant happens or when I’m having a tough time mentally, I’m able to forget things quickly…if I focus on my everyday life, I naturally wind up forgetting and moving forward.”

His bandmate RM also opened up to the outlet about his legacy, and worrying about expectations.
