Before BTS’s debut, the members and I made a promise. They promised to put in effort to be the best in their assigned positions, and I promised to support them so they can become a top group. I think we were both able to hold up our ends of the deal.”

At that time, our goal was to be a good group that doesn’t fall behind when compared to other groups and become a top group in Korea,” and continued, “It was impossible to imagine that BTS would get where they are today, but I am thankful for it. I believe that this is not the end of BTS’s growth, and they will be able continue to become even greater for many years into the future.”
