BTS for Rolling Stone

As BTS gets ready to comeback with Butter (out May 21st) they talk to Rolling Stone about xenophobia, success, insecurities and their future.






RM about xenophobia: “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 about his insecurities: “I lack in many areas, other members will learn a dance once and they’ll be able to dance right away to the music, but I can’t. So I try to work harder so I don’t hold the other members back or be a burden.”



Suga about BTS not talking about dating: Over the course of the group’s existence, none of the members of BTS have acknowledged any romantic relationships, (...) The official line is they’re too busy. “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.”

Jin on enlistment: "I think the country sort of told me, 'You’re doing this well, and we will give you a little bit more time.' Military service is an important duty for our country. So I feel that I will try to work as hard as I can and do the most I can until I am called."

Rolling Stone will be releasing individual covers (and interviews) and those interested can get the box set for $150.
