Jimin of BTS is ‘not thinking too far ahead’

Jimin’s interview with GQ Magazine took place before the band’s Permission to Dance On Stage – LA concerts. In the interview, the BTS singer shared that he was “not thinking too far ahead” and that his focus was on Permission to Dance On Stage – LA.

“I prefer making specific goals over general ones, but these days I’m not thinking too far ahead. After all, we don’t know what changes are coming or when they’ll take place. The most important thing for now is making sure we’re ready for our upcoming concert, our first physical concert in two years,” he told GQ Magazine.

The BTS singer is interested in ‘relationships’

During the interview with GQ Magazine, Jimin was also asked about writing music and where he finds “inspiration.”

“I get a lot of inspiration from my everyday life and the conversations I have with those I’m close to. However, I was quite isolated this past while, so I haven’t been able to work on my music as much. These days, I’ve been trying some new things while I receive some vocal coaching from Jung Kook,” Jimin answered.

The BTS singer revealed that going forward, he wants “to explore the nature of relationships.”

“Hmm, I think it’s become filled with a lot of abstract things. For example, I’m curious about human relationships, something many people are interested in. I want to explore the nature of relationships. I like talking about topics like this,” said Jimin.

Jimin enjoys watching fans at concerts

Since debuting in 2013, BTS have become one of the most popular music acts in the world. While Jimin is proud of BTS’ accomplishments, his favorite moments are watching fans’ reactions at concerts.

“There are so many moments that are unbelievable to me, even now. I still remember so clearly how our concert venues got bigger and bigger, how our international fans would sing along with us in our language, and even how we’d fly through the air on stage,” Jimin told GQ Magazine.

He continued, “There was also a particular moment that really moved me. It’s harder than you think to see people’s faces when you’re on stage. But it’s such a thrill when you can see those who hadn’t looked happy at the beginning of the concert laughing by the end. It’s very moving. These are the kinds of experiences that motivate me to keep performing.”
