Many netizens praise RM’s positive but equally realistic attitude through this story.
Despite knowing in advance that the Grammy is not an ‘easy’ playground for Asian stars, many people also believe in BTS’s series of achievements and influence. Therefore, the group’s failure to achieve the Grammy Awards has made many fans disappointed. Besides, the fans were more emotional because they thought that BTS would be extremely, but the 7 members continuously posted messages to encourage fans on social networks.
Because the group is currently the top K-pop star, more and more people pay attention to their reactions when they have to receive this unexpected result. And recently, RM’s share after Grammy has received a lot of praise from Knets.
On March 14, the 63rd Grammy Awards (Grammy 2021) took place and the winners were announced. This year, BTS is the first Kpop idol group to receive a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Pop Duo / Group Performance’.
In the end, however, the award was given to the song ‘Rain on Me’ by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande. In a video recording the moment the group was waiting to hear the winner announcement, they showed their suspense, inadequacy and optimism, which touched netizens.
After the award ceremony ended, the group held a Vlive to thank the ARMY fandom and expressed their feelings about their past journey before almost reaching Grammy. In particular, the sharing words that show the attitude of leader RM towards the group’s loss of awards became a hot topic on Korean online forums.

M shows humility and a positive attitude when BTS has not received the award: “Although many of you may have expected that we would not get the award, I take it as a sign for us to ‘Come and get it yourself’. That’s how I am accepting it.”
Notably, RM said the group had also read articles saying that their can’t receive a Grammy was a ‘fall’. However, the male idol did not think this was a failure as they were only nominated for the first time. RM shared: “I saw a few articles about it being a fall through with the award, but it’s not really a fall through. Honestly, it’s the first time we’ve been nominated. It’s the first time being nominated as a group and holding a solo performance. Let’s think of this in a positive light.”
Near the end of the live, RM once again sent a message to the fans that the group is still fine. They do not lie that they are not disappointed, but just going to these achievements has made BTS feel very grateful to the fans and those who support the group.
RM said: “Ah it’s okay. This is enough and of course it would be a lie to say that we’re not bummed. It’s really amazing guys, right? Let’s give a round of applause and pat ourselves on the back for doing something so amazing together. Let’s never stop and let’s keep on going!”
In addition to RM’s recent sharing, an old statement from Suga in 2020 was also ‘dug up’ by Knet. In a previous interview, Suga said about his dream: “Our team goal is to perform at the GRAMMYs next year (2021) and to receive the award the year after that (2022).”
Knet thinks that perhaps what the male rapper said will come true. So if this year they still cannot receive the award, BTS still has many other opportunities, and maybe it will be true in 2022 as Suga predicted.
Some comments from netizens:
- “RM speaks so wisely. Next year is BTS’s year!”
- “It will happen just like Suga’s prediction.”
- “You guys were amazing! Let’s get it next year!”
- “I am not a fan of BTS, but looking at their determination and efforts, I really think they will win the award next year.”
- “It’s amazing enough to be nominated, let’s get it next year!”
- “- But why are there people who consider this a failure? They were only nominated for the first time. And now anyone in Kpop can do the same as them?”
