BTS’ Yoongi (also known by his stage names Suga and Agust D) is one of the rappers in the boy band, also appearing as a songwriter and producer. Along with Jin, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, the idol performed at the Grammy Awards, the United Nations Headquarters, and New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. 

Aside from being an award-winning songwriter, the rapper is also known for his mysterious fortune-telling talent. Suga shared some of BTS’ biggest dreams with ARMYs, which often came true. One of the most notable was the K-pop group’s historic Grammy nomination.

Dreams are a big theme if BTS and Suga’s music

With songs like “Dream Glow” and “No More Dream,” dreams are a significant theme in BTS’ songs and their musical careers. The K-pop group went from being a band from a small entertainment company to the world’s biggest boy band. 

ARMYs might think that BTS has grandiose dreams, although Min Yoongi confirmed he doesn’t have a dream as of December 2021. Suga revealed that he doesn’t attach too much meaning to his dreams. 

“We can’t give our dreams too much meaning,” Suga said during an interview with GQ Magazine. “Dreams are just dreams. When I say it’s okay to not have a dream, it’s because you don’t really need one.” 

“You shouldn’t have to struggle so much in order to live your life,” the rapper added. “It’s heartbreaking to see people being pushed to pursue one path when there are 7.8 billion people in the world, living out 7.8 billion different lives.”

BTS’ Suga shared that his newest dream is basketball related 

Suga mentioned that people dream later in life — there’s no age limit to starting and achieving a new dream. Although they’re one of the world’s biggest boy bands, it took BTS several years to get to where they are now. 

“And don’t compare yourself to other people either,” Suga said during the same interview. “There is absolutely no need for you to compare the size of your dream to someone else’s dream.” 

“You’d think I live with super grandiose dreams, but I’m not like that at all,” he continued. “I don’t have a dream right now either. Does that make me miserable? No, it doesn’t. Rather, I’m at peace.”

Suga shared that as of December 2021, his newest dream is getting better at basketball. Of course, this artist is almost always working on new music. That includes producing the official soundtrack for 7FATES: CHAKHO
