Leader Namjoon said, “To the me that only pursued the ideal, I discovered a routine. I started reading again after a pause of more than 3 years because making excuses for one thing or another. I started a regular workout routine in July 2020. I discovered a part of myself that I had never looked at before and I was able to have a wider perspective (influenced music (work) too). I still don’t really know where these 2 yes will bring me in the future. But today, I’m going to read, work out & go to the studio. That’s how I’m going to live.”

BTS members Jin Said, “A positive change that’s happened to me while experiencing the past 2 years of the pandemic is that I’m more relaxed/free/have peace of mind. Before the pandemic, there was a lot of work and I thought all the schedules were frustrating. Since time was limited and there were a lot to prepare..Of course, though I’m still busy and have a lot to prepare now, after having a difficult time bc of the pandemic and clearing my mind, my heart has gotten much lighter. Even if I’m doing the same work, because I’m working with a different mindset, I have been able to work while laughing more. I want to live more positively in the future as well. cheer up”

Suga asked, “Were the past two years like for you?’

J-hope said, “I tried to change with different styles, different hair colors, and the results gave me new energy and motivation for my day! What about you?”

Jimin Said, “Watching the scenery on my runs and working up a sweat brought lots of changes for me. I stopped overthinking and changed to become more positive!

Taehyung said, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to travel, but I go through the pictures I’ve taken and look forward to my future travels!”

Jungkook Said, “Since the outbreak of coronavirus, I’ve become familiar with the word “non-face-to-face / contactless. It is difficult to meet not only my friends and acquaintances but also my family. So these days, I chat with people using messaging programs, listen to songs, play games, and watch movies. There’s more pleasure to it than I thought. Now that we’ve gotten familiar with contactless, I hope many people will make small hobbies that are cautious and not dangerous”

The general discussion of the General Assembly of the United Nations, followed by speeches by high-level officials such as heads of state and private experts such as BTS, will be held from September 21 to 27.

BTS is expected to leave the country quietly in September without disclosing detailed schedules.
