BTS celebrated their 2015 FESTA by sharing thoughts about the year that was 2014 and shared their memories of the year.
Jin: “So many good things happen in only two years. We had our own concert and we even went on global tour. More than that, we got ranked at the top of the major broadcast show. The most important thing, it’s been two years with you all, ARMY. Also I’m happy to be with these guys here. I wish this could last for a long time, for years! I love you, who are in this journey with me. Cheers!”
RM: “Last year was enormously busy. I would like to say, ‘not only us, you all did well’ Now maybe we can slow down a bit, and look back and think about ourselves. I wish you can have the same moment and run with us”
j-hope: “I can’t believe its our second anniversary. It’s amazing! For sure we grew up for two years, but it looks like our fans grew up too. For example you guys are prettier. The fans who were in high school became college students and put on some makeup on their faces… it’s so surprising and I’m happy about these changes. Thanks for spending two more years with us. You have no idea how meaningful it is to us. And I wish this lasts forever”
V: “Wow, time flies. I was really surprised when I heard it’s already our second anniversary. For two years we were really busy but I don’t feel bad about it at all. If we were not busy, I would have felt miserable…So I believe being busy is better for us. I will be busy as much as possible and try my best to make my ARMY happy. I can’t thank you enough, ARMY.”
Jung Kook: “It was such massive two years. But I’m here because of my family and ARMY. You give me so much energy. Also I know we’ve been developed a lot, but I still think we should grow up more and go further. So please see us becoming more amazing. We’ll do our best. Thank you”
Jimin: “Hi this is Jimin. Wow. Its been two years. Like SUGA said, we all tried so hard and I think that made us feel the past two years had gone fast. You did better than us ARMY. Your support made us and will make us. For some people two years may seem like nothing, however, its so special because of you. And I’m grateful about it. We’ll show you lots of performances, so please look forward to it. Thanks”
SUGA: “It’s been two years. Maybe that can be such short years for some people. If we were working at some company, we wouldn’t even be able to get the assistant manager title. So many things happened in two years. It was such a short period of time, but at the same time it was quite a long time. Thanks to ARMY , you’ve been there all the time. You re with us every second. I wish this lasts for 20n years, if possible 200 years…”
