RM and Suga are the eternal room mates. Their friendship has been for over a decade, 10 years of building trust, love, loyalty, acceptance and mutual respect. their relationship dynamic seems to be one where they do not have to speak to each other to understand what the other is saying. They can be sitting in silence and yet be comfortable enjoying each other’s company. Both RM and Suga are great lyricists who write poetry like rhythms and wordplays that are spectacular and thought provoking. Their style of rap is more hardcore and hard hitting with a sort of raspy melody that just hits right.

During BTS FESTA 2020, RM and Suga sat down to talk about their song “RESPECT”. Question was asked “What aspects of each other do you respect?
RM: “There’s something about Suga. How much he works. (I don’t work that much anymore). Yeah but that’s compared to his standards. Since I worked on ‘mono’ other than working on the album. I did next to nothing… Suga’s almost done with his… so those things, I really respect”
Suga: “I said this before, I really empathize with Namjoon. His struggles as the leader. He has to bring about a grand unification. So I’m really proud of Namjoon for that. The oldest person is usually the leader and encourages everyone. That’s not always true but people think Namjoon is the oldest. Bringing people together is Namjoon’s strength. Our hard working leader, I know…” Watch the Full Conversation

- When RM dedicated a verse to Suga in their song “MOVE”
“Ayo SUGA, I remember how we came here three years ago. When you and I used to fight all the time. The wallpaper, bathroom and veranda were all blue. Back then I thought this was a big place. But my ambition grew too big. That big house became too small now. When the nine trainees shared a 17-pyung house. Seems like it was just yesterday, we grew up a lot. Good things were always other people’s things. We were always hoarse from an uncertain future and worries. Seeing all the senior artists at the end of the year awards. Let’s not forget those things but put them away. This place smells like us. Let’s not forget this scent, wherever we are. We cried a lot and laughed a lot but it was so beautiful. Nonhyeon-dong, 3rd floor, thank you” RM
