BTS made an appearance on MBC Radio’s Bae Cheol Soo’s Music Camp to talk about their Billboard win with “Dynamite” as well as what we can expect from them next. What’s interesting is that this radio program is not known to ever do a visual radio show streamed live on YouTube, making BTS the first guests to do this.
While the members went around revealing who their biggest musical influences were, Jin chose the members as his biggest inspiration, changing the vibe of the question completely.
If I had to choose who my biggest musical influence is, I would have to say the BTS members. It is because of the members that I was able to start music and write my own songs. I’ve practiced singing next to them the most so it’s natural that I am influenced by them.
After Jin’s answer, it seemed that everyone else felt the same way. Jimin answered next with, “I think it’s the same for me too. I’ve received influence not only from RM but also from the other members as well. They changed my mindset in that I used to just want to be on stage, but the members showed me just how fun it is to sing and communicate a message through music. In turn, it made me want to work harder to sing better and work on my voice.”
Following Jimin, Jungkook also expressed that he was influenced by RM as well as the other members. This continued down as RM, V, and J-Hope all stated that they were influenced by the members as a given.
Bae Cheol Soo was quite impressed at the teamwork and support the members had for each other and felt that it was a crucial factor in the group’s global success.
