RM at 'BE' Album Release Press Conference

'BE' is out and it is everything we expected it to be! In the press conference prior to 'BE' release, RM described the message behind their main track 'Life Goes On'. He said the message was that 'no matter what happens, life still goes on'.

The theme might be a serious one, but they tried their best to add comforting consolidations to it with their harmonies and aesthetics. Director Jungkook gets the credit for the wholesome and emotional music video. He mentions he included RM and his bike because he knew how much RM is attached to his bike. 

Namjoon brushing the dust off his bike with his fingers is one major scene that hit hard in the Music Video of 'Life Goes On'. It symbolizes how Covid-19 stopped everyone from going outside to do their favorite activities. Hence, this shot was more emotional because in normal times RM wouldn't ever let dust settles on his bicycle. He would be carelessly riding it each day.

 Though the music video might make us emotional, the BTS boys will always be here to cheer up with their jokes. In BTS VLIVE: 'Life Goes On' Comeback, they discuss RM and his bike scene. The rest of the BTS boys joked about how in real life, RM would not even care about wiping the dust with his hands. They exposed RM by saying, he would just sit on the dusty bike and remove the dust by sitting.
