BTS Members Get Candid About Dealing With Stress & Mental Health Awareness

BTS Members Get Candid About Dealing With Stress & Mental Health Awareness

BTS are on the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue, out now.

Here’s what the hugely successful K-Pop boy band had to say…

RM on social change: “Honestly, from our standpoint, every day is stressful for our generation. It’s hard to get a job, it’s harder to attend college now more than ever. Adults need to create policies that can facilitate that overall social change. Right now, the privileged class, the upper class needs to change the way they think.”

RM on the recent death of Jonghyun from the K-pop group SHINee: “We went to give our condolences that morning. I couldn’t sleep at all that night. It was so shocking, because we had seen him so often at events. He was so successful.”

Suga on the death of Jonghyun and mental health awareness: “I really want to say that everyone in the world is lonely and everyone is sad, and if we know that everyone is suffering and lonely, I hope we can create an environment where we can ask for help, and say things are hard when they’re hard, and say that we miss someone when we miss them.”
