See BTS on the Cover of Latest Issue of ‘Entertainment Weekly’
BTS just landed their first Entertainment Weekly cover!
Jimin, V, RM, J-Hope, Suga, Jungkook, and Jin can add another accomplishment to their growing list because they are EW's cover boys this month, marking the first South Korean group to ever cover the magazine.
For their cover story, BTS opened up about everything, including their future goals. "A Hot 100 and a Grammy nomination, these are our goals," RM said. "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 okay."
Following their worldwide success, the group has been compared to the Beatles, which RM admitted is a little "embarrassing." He explained, "Sometimes it feels really embarrassing when someone calls us a 21st-century Beatles or something like that, but if they want to call us a boy band, then we’re a boy band. If they want to call us a boy group, we’re a boy group. If they want to call us K-pop, then we’re cool with K-pop."
Jimin also revealed that living together for so many years was hard at first, but it helped their relationships reach a whole other level. “We’ve been living together for a while now, almost eight, nine years," he said. "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.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the BTS boys dished on their earliest pop music memories and what they like to do in their spare time. Their hobbies include going to the movies (but "always the latest or earliest show" so they have stay unseen), online shopping, playing video games like StarCraft at home, and going fishing together.
