Wow, their gov't really just sees them as cash cows and don't want to lose the money they bring in. This is getting ridiculous! At this rate they'll have them singing dynamite at 70 with walkers and all.
They can't do that! Those old folks would keel over the moment they started singing. How are they going to do a tour and military service? That's too much work and the military duties are intense. Will no one think of the idols?

Poor tree!

the video should be titled Namjoon show his true color :
YG's answer to the question about plagiarism in that last clip was the only actual leadership in that whole video. NJ was trying to dodge the question and play dumb, and YG was like "Let's be adults about this".

They got that question for a reason though. They don't plagiarize but they do copy. NJ is the guiltiest, because he was the lead producer every song that they've done that's been at the center of a plagiarism accusation. NJ is just total crap at coming up with his own ideas.

There's also a rumor going around that a news media site even reported on, about the reason why they're taking a break is because NJ was too overbearing and the rest of the group had had enough. It's funny because HS is far more successful and capable as a solo artist than a member of BT5. In BT5 he's just a dance leader, which means effectively nothing considering that JM is a far better and more talented dancer than HS is. I can only imagine how different the members who actually pursue solo activities will sound and act.

I see it happening like this:
  • NJ won't do anything. He can't function as a musician outside of BT5. Too many people dislike him and don't take him seriously.
  • JM won't do anything either, except for fashion shoots. He's too lazy to produce his own music. He also can't sing anymore, (which is why he lip syncs so much) so if he did make music he'd need way too much autotune to correct his vocals.
  • JK might make an EP at the most. I don't see him doing a full length album. I don't think he's got the attention span.
  • Tae will probably release an LP but it will take him a couple years to finish it. He's reached a point where he doesn't need to do anything cause of how popular he is.
  • Jin will probably release an LP within the next couple years. Likely after military service if they make him and the rest of the guys enlist (frankly, they should, none of that favoritism crap).
  • We all know YG is gonna release a ton of music going forward.
  • We saw how HS handled being solo and it was of no surprise.

Dig is just slang meaning an insult. I really need to stop using so many slang words haha. And thanks for explaining what you meant. I've heard some horror stories about how disrespectful Americans are in foreign countries. It really sucks that a minority of the U.S. population represents the majority of us to the world. See most Americans don't and won't ever get to travel out of the country. A lot have never even traveled out of their state or been on a plane. Last I checked something like only 30% have a passport and I bet those are mostly immigrants that visit their home country. My friends and I were always wishing to leave our state, but it usually never happens. The reason is travelling is too expensive here. So the people visiting your country had to have been privileged to begin with and probably think they are entitled to treat people anyway they want. I've dealt with these elitist fools working in retail for years. I don't think they necessarily represent the majority of Americans, but they're the ones that can afford to travel and what the world sees so...
Thanks for understanding what I meant! I hope soon to get to know your country and people personally and to be able to change the image that the minority gives us. And as for slang, you guys sometimes give me a hard time to understand what you mean hehe cause it's not the kind of thing that teachers and translators teach, but it's also a nice part of getting to know a new language and culture :)

Can you post the article about Rm? What do you think about Jh's solo debut? Thanks! It was very interesting reading your post. Especially the part about who will or won't have a debut solo.

It was originally written by Bollywoodlife, but their article seems to have disappeared. Not much of a surprise there. Lots of negative things about BT5 magically vanish overnight these days. Koimoi has an article citing Bollywoodlife though: https://www.koimoi.com/hollywood-news/bts-split-because-members-were-tired-of-rms-dominating-nature-v-others-felt-left-out/ They say pretty much exactly what BWL said. In the original BWL article, the source was unnamed. The reason(s) behind why the source would be unnamed are vast; could be a staff member at Big$hit, could be a band member, could be another idol, could be total bologna. Who knows. It makes so much sense that it could be true that I'm leaning toward it being plausible.

I really liked HS's solo album. There are songs I liked more than others, for sure. I didn't care for Arson. I thought it was so unpolished that it sounded too much like it was made in an amateur studio. The music video was way too out there for me. It was too much. I also thought More was one of the weaker songs. I didn't like it the first time I listen to it, and now I'm just indifferent to it. For me, What If was the best song. I loved his delivery.

In general I'm fine with him going solo and his performance at Lolla was great. I do kind of but not really wonder why, out of all the band members, HS was the one selected to go to Lolla. At first I thought it was because someone in charge had to be a HS stan, because despite him being the richest member and his first mixtape being the most lucrative, he's not the most popular. Which is weird but anyway... I think the label paid money to have HS there, since TXT were there too. If it was just HS I wouldn't think that but, TXT don't seem like they are that popular to me. Truly the only other band member who has enough music and stamina to fill a set as long as that (70 mins) is YG, but I wouldn't be surprised if he said no to performing there. It's not suited for a big stage like that. It's more HS's thing. I guess I just found HS performing at Lolla unexpected.

Edit: Nevermind I found the Bollywoodlife article: https://www.bollywoodlife.com/hollywood/bts-to-disband-due-to-rm-being-bossy-jungkook-j-hope-kim-taehyung-feeling-left-out-despite-more-popularity-exclusive-deets-inside-entertainment-news-2103076/

That was so unexpected but he did really well. His new songs aren't my thing but I watched the whole show a few days later. Watched t×t the day of, and they did good too. I can't see Rm up there. The rest are niche artists and won't appeal to a wider market. Fans will support them but only ot7 brings in the views. Jh's English improved a lot. He spoke English the whole show, something only Rm and maybe Jk can do too.

His real personality came out more in songs like Arson. Rm has talked about his depression before, and I think he used that to color his songs. As an army, my favorite Jh rap was in Young Forever. The lyrics are very bittersweet. I recommend watching it with the sound off or reading them.

Even though he's less popular in Korea, artists there and here respect and know him. That's why he went solo first. Hive is risking nothing letting him go first. They're fine tuning the other member's debuts using this.

It was nice that he showed support to t×t. I think only Tae, Jh, and Jm have kept up with them. Jm used to call them the babies. I thought it was just media play but Jh has been consistent, even sending them off to the USA with a nice message.

Thank you for posting the article. I find that Indian articles are more honest about entertainment news, even things that happen here. After reading it, I'll post my thoughts.

yes but they also don't take him seriously as a leader , watch the bottle of water clip , he kept saying to Taehyung to don't drink the water but Jk give him the water and didn't listen to him , and the other clip when he was talking to the group before they going to stage, Taehyung didn't listen to him and kept playing around..

Exactly. It's pretty difficult to take NJ seriously in anything, but especially leadership. It's hilarious how the label and his bandmates keep shouting from the rooftops that he's a great leader when everyone else can see otherwise. NJ doesn't respect them, so they don't listen to him.

Oh 100% his real personality came out. HS's lyricism with this album has been praised significantly, FOR A REASON. He's a way better writer than any of the guys in the band.

His music isn't my taste, as well, but I watched Lolla. I adored his moments with Becky, it was fricking precious. Those two have such a genuine friendship. People who know him, respect him.

HS's verses in every song sound amazing. It's his voice. That tone is very specific and you notice it immediately. (The same can be said about YG, especially when he starts growling or gets hyped up and starts squealing, lol). HS's delivery is just out of this world. And he wasn't a rapper before he joined Hive.

I think Hive were also using his album as the digital album experiment. You're right that they lose nothing with him. In fact, if HS left BT5 I don't think Hive would even care. (The same could probably be said about Jin, cause Hive and the RM never let Jin do anything).

I'm looking forward to your thoughts about the article!

the other clip when he give those angry looks at the maknae joking around during the award speech , it looks he want to kill them or something
