RM of BTS said he would not have pink hair again

BTS released their first English-language single “Dynamite” in August 2020. On Sept. 5, 2020, the band appeared on iHeartRadio’s Ask Anything Chat to promote the song. During the video segment, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook answered fan-submitted questions.

One fan told RM to bring back his pink hair, and the BTS rapper declined.

“Oh, I don’t, I don’t do pink,” he said.

RM explained that after having pink hair on the variety show Weekly Idol years ago, he decided to never have the hair color again.

“Nah, I won’t do it again,” he said.
