V and RM discussed V’s songwriting

RM and V started the VLIVE by mentioning how they missed performing for fans and hoped ARMY would watch their music show performances on TV. RM then brought up songwriting.

“V, have you been writing songs recently?” RM asked according to an English translation.

“I’ve written three songs,” V answered.

He credited living with songwriters after becoming a trainee at Big Hit Entertainment and later a member of BTS as inspiration for his own songwriting.

“I was able to actually feel the life of songwriters,” he said. “I was influenced as I lived with the songwriters.”

RM praised V for working harder than him, and V told him that the songs he wrote were not finished yet. He then added that one would be released soon.

“One song will be released,” he said. “As far as I know, the article is already out.”

V then told fans that the song was completed, and he really loves the song. He also told ARMY he wants them to listen to the song to heal.

The two BTS members talked about ‘Inner Child’

In the middle of the VLIVE, the BTS members discussed V’s solo on Map of the Soul: 7, “Inner Child.” According to RM, V was very involved in the songwriting process.

“Normally, people say emotions volatilize after that moment. It disappears in the sky,” RM said. “Most emotions disappear. Writing down the emotions you felt at the time is…”

“You can’t feel it again in the future,” V said.

“It’s a great attitude as a writer,” RM said. “When working on ‘Inner Child,’ V was… I’ve worked on several solo tracks for other members. When I send them a file, they will edit it on their own. And they would finally confirm. But V and I had an active conversation while working on ‘Inner Child.'”

After the VLIVE, ARMY started the hashtag #TaehyungOSTisComing on Twitter. With the hashtag, BTS fans wrote about how proud they are of V and how much they can’t wait for the new song.
