One, two, three, here we go
[They watch themselves 7 years ago, 5 days into their debut] What’s this?
[They watch themselves 7 years ago, 5 days into their debut] They said it’s our debut
[They watch themselves 7 years ago, 5 days into their debut] -“June 2013, BTS 5 days into their debut”
-Five days? -Five days!
-Watching these old videos is really something Hey it’s SBS!
[June 2013 pre-show interview for SBS Inkigayo] I know, I know
[June 2013 pre-show interview for SBS Inkigayo] Wow, look at me, look Namjoon’s sunglasses I hate myself -Everyone’s expression is so intense
-I know, right Suga’s so young It’s all bling bling, but then not really How old was Suga? So young Twenty-one, younger than Jung Kook now Jung Kook’s basically a baby
[Q. Please say hello] “Two, three, Bangtan! Hello, we are BTS!” This was endearing back then I think these are the outfits…
“We’ll try that one more time” -If we didn’t have those…
-“We’ll try that one more time”, oh my If we didn’t have those Why don’t we do that, pow! “Hello, I do the rap and dance in our team” Go away, man Look how far we’ve come “Hello. I’m Rap Monster” “Like my name, I do the rap in this team” I’m wound up tight “Hello, I’m Jung Kook” “I’m 17, and I do the vocals and the dance” Was I really 17? Jung Kook’s face is like a baby “I’m Jin, the oldest brother of BTS” He’s good looking -He’s handsome, right?
-Minty fresh Like a fawn “I’m Suga. I do the rap in this team” No one has any fat on his face It is a little extreme We starved like crazy We starved so much
[Q. When was your debut?] [Q. When was your debut?] “Today’s the 16th, so it’s been five days” I sound more mature here -“You’re brand new, then?”
-“Yes, brand spanking new rookies” The interviewers, they must have been like, “Who are these clowns?” “When we do our dry rehearsal”
[Q. What’s that on your shirts?] “The camera directors and the show staff” I remember “don’t know our names” We still use those “There aren’t a lot of groups who…” -Earrings, look at those fancy earrings
-I know Look at those. They got hung up on the in-ears all the time [Q. How long are you planning to wear those?] “If we get big and the camera directors know our names” Look at that dope hair “we might be able to wear something else” Didn’t you have “RM” carved into it? “I hope soon they’ll be able to tell us apart” “and call our names even without these…” Don’t we still use those? -Not any more
-We don’t? [Q. Do you have a killer move for the audience?] We had a killer move? Say it ain’t so Put that away, please! I think Namjoon’s about to step up -No, it’s not me, no
-Suga’s got it, he’s got the mic!! “We have a part where we unveil Jimin’s abs” It’s Jimin -Passing the buck
-Passing it off He’s the master Even back then Man, you had no body fat back then Incredible Amazing -That was amazing
-You had a nice body there “We’re part of writing the music, lyrics” “We really love and enjoy hip hop” Hey! Shoo! Out! “Thank you. We’ll do our best” “Sorry, can we go again?” “Sorry, can we”…Namjoon missed it -We had greetings 1, 2 and 3 back then
-Right Really? “Sorry” -He’s tense
-I know Did they air this whole thing? Again? We did a lot “Thank you. We’ll try our best” -Watching this, we sure aren’t what we used to be
-We worked hard It’s too bad it’s not 7 days into our debut I know. It’s not “day 7”. -Because back then on day seven…
-If it was seven days in, we probably had nothing There wouldn’t have been a music show In our MAP OF THE SOUL : 7… -Back then…
-It was chaos Yeah. We couldn’t get on a lot of shows -Right
-I know If a show was full we couldn’t get a slot, all the time That interview on Hanbam TV Entertainment, we were like -We talked about
-“It’s so important for us” It was kind of amazing It’s rare to get an interview like that I remember back then They really saved us We must have been fascinating. All “Bangtan Sonyeondan” Those vests and all Like, “These boys are desperate” We would’ve been a sight… Bangtan Sonyeondan, all that I had a nice body You did. And now? Yes, that’s right Everyone was like laser focused Two! Three! Bang! Tan! You know watching these old videos brings a lot back but we love who we are now we’ll keep loving the now We love where we are, so should we do the greeting? We need to have that discipline No, don’t do that, let’s show our greeting we have now Natural. Like we’re really doing it I noticed we’ve been spoiling our album title all this time You’re right Wow, that far back… Let’s give it a go Hello everyone.
Two, three, Bangtan! Hello, we are BTS -Sure has changed
-You were doing that -But how can people not change?
-This is more natural People are bound to change People watching are going to get uncomfortable “What’s with these guys, ugh” “So tense” Aren’t I the only person that does it like this? Sometimes I do this, then like this, or this I think the angle keeps changing First the angle was like this, then I go this way That way Upside down Is it the Matrix or something? I used to go like this, “Two, three, Bangtan! Hello, we are BTS…” I used to do this number It’s fine, it was all cool That was fun. Those days made today possible, everyone -That’s right
-It’s not weird at all -Those guys made us who we are today
-We’ll value our today that much more We really love who we are, we do Thank you
