This is the first song I helped work on. I never imagined in my wildest dreams I’d work on anything, to be honest. (laughs) All the other members were working on things, so I wanted to, too, and luckily mine was chosen. That’s when I realized how amazingly fun the whole process of making a song and releasing it is.BTS V – Kim Taehyung (weverse magazine)
