South Korean boy band BTS vow not to sing in English

South Korean boy band BTS have vowed that they “won’t sing in English” just to get to “number one” because it would mean they’d have to “change” their identity.

Also known as the Bangtan Boys is made up of 7 members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook, and the group have vowed that they will not “change” their “identity” just to get major hit in the West or get award nominations because they want to stay true to themselves.

According to BangShowbiz, RM said: “A Hot 100 and a Grammy nomination, these are our goals. But they’re just goals we don’t want to change our identity or our genuineness to get the number one, like if we sing suddenly in full English, and change all these other things, then that’s not BTS. We’ll do everything, we’ll try. But if we couldn’t get number one or number five, that’s OK.”

The ‘Idol’ hitmakers -who have sold out two nights at Wembley Stadium in London for their upcoming tour in June have only one track where they sing in English, which is 2018’s ‘Waste It On Me’, and Suga insists it would have to be a “great song” to make them ditch their native tongue for a second time.

Suga said: “It will have to be a great song but also there’s a whole strategy that’s associated with getting all the way up. And then there has to be a measure of luck, obviously. So what’s important for us is just to make good music and good performances and have those elements come together.”

BTS also admitted that they avoid “arguments and conflicts” between the seven members by making sure to always “communicate” and by reading each other’s emotions.

Jimin said: “We’ve been living together for a while now, almost eight, nine years. So, in the beginning, we had a lot of arguments and conflicts. But we’ve reached the point where we can communicate wordlessly, basically just by watching each other and reading the expressions.”

In August 2018, ‘Idol’by BTS broke the record for the biggest music video debut in YouTube history as reported by The Sauce. The video earned more than 45 million views in its first 24 hours, surpassing the debut of Taylor Swift’s music video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do,’ which had 43.2 million views in 24 hours upon its release in 2017.
