“This time it felt different. So it felt quieter and smaller. Why? I thought about that for a long time. I think maybe because it’s become more difficult to imagine. I was frustrated and depressed. But I took a paper, wrote down a few songs and think about who I am,” said V.
“I thought if I gave up here then I wouldn’t be a star in my life. This is something great people do.”
When delivering his speech, BTS also looked compact wearing colorful circle pins on his jacket.
This pin is an SDG or Sustainable Development Goals pin. The pin used by BTS looks special because there is an additional Swarovski crystal. Many people want to have an SDG BTS pin, but this collection is specially made and not for sale.
