Leader RM shared: “When we first release a new song, I always get nervous. I hope many people will like it. ‘Proof’ is a special album that concludes Chapter 1 of BTS’s history as we look to our ninth anniversary. As the focus of the album is our message to our fans who have been with us for nine years, we put the most effort into our lyrics. »
Jin, the oldest member of BTS, commented: “As ‘Proof’ is an album that captures the history of BTS, it brings back different memories from the past nine years. I too will listen to it often. Because there are new songs and unreleased songs on the album, fans will also be able to enjoy them. »
SUGA said: “Since it’s an album that sums up the history of BTS, we paid special attention to how the songs were organized on the album. If you listen to the album in order from the first track, there will be some pleasure in listening to it. It’s an honor to be able to capture our journey of the past nine years in this new album ‘Proof’. I hope that those who listen to the album will follow and once again walk in our footsteps. ”
Sharing his anticipation for the release, J-Hope commented: “As it’s the first time we’ve released an album in a long time, I’m excited and delighted. I want to take advantage of [l’album] with our fans as soon as possible. ‘Proof’ is an album that encapsulates the life story of BTS and ARMYs, and it’s even more special because it captures our memories and the time spent together. Since it contains the soul of BTS, I hope you give it lots of love. »
Jimin, meanwhile, shared “Since it’s been a while since we released a new album, I feel happy and a bit strange at the same time. » He went on, talking about what makes ‘Proof’ special, saying: “It’s a particularly special album because it contains our previous tracks as well as previously unreleased songs. I felt it was all the more special because it allowed me to watch the other members’ emotions as well as my own, because we were able to talk about it together. »
V shared: “As this is an album that contains our nine-year journey, I sincerely hope that it will become a treasured gift for our fans who have always supported us and made history for us. »
Finally, BTS’ youngest member Jungkook talked about “Proof”: “It feels like we’ve written a very thick book and are finishing it now. As we have always done with our albums so far, we paid attention to all aspects while working on them. It’s an album that shows the history of BTS so far, as well as our feelings. »
