BTS’ 2021 Year In Review, Best Moments, Historical Moments & Moments With ARMY

“BTS have once again had a great year that has just shown their consistency in giving fans the best of their talents and music. As much as 2021 was still a tough year in terms of the pandemic, it was the first time that BTS were able to attend events in person, and perform infront of a live audience. They performed at the AMA where they won the most coveted award “Artist Of The Year” and had a four day sold out live concert in Los Angeles. They released “Butter” which was their second all English song that broke all the records of their previous all English song “Dynamite” by hitting #1 on Billboard Hot 100 for 10 non consecutive weeks. They also released “Permission to Dance” which also debuted at #1 on Hot 100 replacing “Butter” which took back its place the following week. BTS also spoke at the UN and performed as well.

The biggest surprise was BTS opening their individual Instagram accounts that caught many completely off guard since it was something no one expected or even imagined it would happen and they also announced their extended break for the first time since debut to spend the time with their families for the holidays. From the many awards they have won, to the content they have shared BTS have had an outstanding year that has fed ARMY throughout the pandemic. What does BTS in 2022 hold? We will definitely wait and see.

Here is BTS’ 2021 year in review according to Weverse and we are proud to have captured some of those great moments. Click on the underlined links to go back down memory lane with us!

‘BE-hind Story’ Interview

Jin: “If you literally look at it “simply,” it’s a voice that expresses myself. Natural and genuine. So I think I am “simple” but I don’t think “simple” is bad.”

Jung Kook: “If I keep taking a deep dive into music, naturally the things I want would come to me.”

j-hope: “The feelings and emotions I have, things I want to say. I will never not contain these into my music.”

Jimin: “I thought that I want to try many things and not limit myself.”

RM: “After having walked along this path a long time, they look like a diary, a collection of my emotions I had at the time. The songs.”

SUGA: “I have to try different things. I wanted to try singing again. I just hope that we keep doing music, and have fun on the way.”

V: “It makes me feel great when they like my music style. When ARMY listens to them. So I guess I get my energy every time ARMY likes my music.”

UNGA Special Session

“Sustainable Development Goal Moment”

Opening Speech

Jin: There were times during the past two years when I, too, felt bewildered and troubled, but still here we have people who cry out, “Let’s live on!”, “Let’s make the best of this moment!”

Jimin: Because we can’t stand still when we’re in the ideal time of our lives to take on new challenges. It wasn’t as if we could blame anyone, and you must have felt the frustration. Here I’m the same as I was yesterday, but the world changed like we were transported in a flash to a parallel world.

Jung Kook: I was saddened to hear that entrance and graduation ceremonies had to be cancelled. These are moments in life you want to celebrate, and missing out on them must have been upsetting. We were heartbroken when our long-planned concert tours were cancelled, and for a while we yearned for the moments we wanted to make complete.

V: So I hope we don’t just consider the future as grim darkness. We have people who are concerned for the world and searching for the answers. There are still many pages left in this story about us, and I thought we shouldn’t talk like the ending’s already been written.

SUGA: There will be choices we make that may not be perfect, but that doesn’t mean there will be nothing we can do.

j-hope: What matters is what kind of choices you make in the face of change, isn’t it? Lots of people wondered if we were vaccinated when they heard we were coming to the UN. I’ll take this opportunity to answer that question: all seven of us are vaccinated.

RM: I look at it as a kind of ticket we had to get in order to see the fans who’ve waited around for us and in order to come here. Because, like the message we’re sending today, we’re doing what we can right now. I hope we can all welcome each other, and everyone, in this new world that’s beginning.

“We’ll now perform “Permission to Dance” for you as our way to welcome everyone.”
