M, some other committed follower of the band who wanted to be known as therefore, shed light on the same. “I didn’t feel wonderful before everything, but being in the ARMY and listening to them for a long time made me respect them more. I even have seen how they struggled in the beyond, and now that they were getting an worldwide target audience and being nominated for Grammy multiple times, it wasn’t a notable feeling in any respect.”
When requested about how the ARMY commonly felt approximately every of the seven individuals liberating character tune, Shaheen* stated, “I am genuinely in love with their individual releases because they all have wonderful abilities and personalities which translate into their artwork. I have continually been [appreciative of] their decision of focusing on solo tasks due to the fact I think this has been the high-quality path a band has taken rather than breaking apart to head solo.”
Going into a bit of element, Syeda Izzah, another BTS devotee, said, “Their [individually] released songs are kind of creative and aesthetic as they bring messages in a exceptional manner. Jin’s Astronaut album became dope – mainly the [music video]. It had a loving message that comforted me, [essentially saying] that he loves his enthusiasts on a deeper level. Same is the case together with his other songs, like Moon and Abyss. Recently, RM’s album Indigo was also dope. One of my favored songs from his album is Wild Flower because it gives a precious lesson to now not give up on yourself, love your self, and receive your flaws. Jimin’s current album, Face, is considered one of his finest works, along along with his other songs.”Touching similarly upon the concept of messages inside the tune – for which the band is adored – Shaheen* delivered, “I assume the messages have evolved however not modified in BTS’ tune.

Mahrukh Shaikh, an ARMY member and the Head of Content at Symmetry Group, shared her take at the converting soundscape of the band and the divergence of the contributors. “The band’s music turned into in particular and in large part a wedding among Bang Si-Hyuk’s (the founder of Big Hit Music and Hybe Corporation) vision and the member’s thoughts. However, they as individuals simply shone enough through the ‘brand’ that is BTS. Not that they weren’t ‘artists’ earlier than. They were (and are) a ‘group’ of artists. But Jhope (Jack In The Box and On The Street), RM (Indigo), Jin (Astronaut) and Jimin (Vibe and Face) coming out with their solos and albums is simply greater of the individuals we’ve come to like and adore.”
