I started to consider that my secret weapon from some point,” Suga said, according to a translation. “I tried songs in various styles on D-2, too. I feel like I might not be able to become a master of one genre, but I can wear many hats. There’s still so much I want to do.” 

Already, Suga composed the soundtrack for the 7FATES: CHAKHO webtoon, with Jungkook as a featured vocalist for the production. He sometimes writes and produces for other artists. Recently, he partnered with PSY for “That That,” also enjoying a starring role in the official music video. 

“I have no feel for what kind of music I’m going to be making in my 30s, 40s, or 50s, but I want to keep doing music until the day I die,” he added. “I’m someone who can wear many different hats, so I think I started to worry less when I think about what kind of music I’ll do after.”

Born on March 9, 1993, Suga still has a long way to go until he’s in his 40s or 50s. With Proof showcasing three new tracks and new versions of fan-favorite releases, ARMYs are already excited for the K-pop group’s upcoming endeavors.

Even when BTS is taking “extended periods of rest and relaxation,” Suga is working on music. In 2020, he released his second mixtape, D-2, under the stage name Agust D. He created a music video for “Daechwita,” also inviting Jin and Jungkook to have a cameo in the production. 

Suga even featured other artists in his solo music, including BTS’ RM and MAX. His song “So Far Away” has over 55 million Spotify plays, while “People” holds over 75 million plays on the streaming platform.
