BTS’s leader Rap Monster said about their song got No.1 on Billboard: “It’s ours but it’s actually thanks to you all”
“I have a lot of things to say but I keep on putting it off a bit… The thing is there are many easy words and words like thank you to say and I also feel sorry that I may not reach the your best expectations. I’m feel so happy that I always receive what we shouldn’t be deserved, it’s a reward with our name but the fact is it’s always thanks to you all that we received them. We have always lived with that thought kept in our hearts. Even tomorrow, or the days after that, it’s because of you all that we always feel strong. Thank you so much.”RM
