BTS did the unexpected in 2020. They performed without an audience and remained passionate about their music without the cheers of their fans. They did it all for us. So that we still have something to hold on to - their message of hope.
‘Working out at home, eating delivery food. Wasn’t this a year where we did everything we could in our small rooms’. Namjoon tries to portray some positivity by making fans realize that the year 2020 made us try things we would not have otherwise.
‘Even though there is no one else, I am listening’.
This line resonated the most with the fans! Namjoon once again proved that he is there for us even when we are all alone. He’s keeping a check on us through his music. After all, who can ever get over his mixtape Mono which was released in October 2018. With tracks like ‘moonchild’ and ‘forever rain’, the mixtape gave the warmest hug to his fans. Mono is known in the BTS fandom as the album that listens to you, as you shed tears.
In the end, he thanked all the fans for being with him and his band members even during days that were exhausting. Namjoon hopes that spring comes soon and washes away all the miseries that the year 2020 gave us. And I hope the same.
