there is so much work – pouring over the tiniest details, going over each phrase, each word – that goes into writing just one song. imagine doing that for a hundred & seventy five songs. namjoon's work ethic & time management is quite unreal. how does he work so hard #RM175KOMCA pic.twitter.com/ROLUxOGT3f
