Since their previous title track's name is 'On', it's not only a reference, but also holds a special meaning for ARMY too. The leader continued by giving the true meaning behind why they chose it as the title track. 'No matter what happens out there, people's lives go on.'

It's incredible how the group thought about ARMYs in every step of the way. From what the track should be named, to the meaning behind it. This song was made to comfort ARMYs and anyone who's having a hard time during this pandemic.

Suga discussed how he couldn't even read some articles containing pandemic stories because it was too sad, so he wants to help people the best way he can- through music.

A commenter pointed out how not once did they mention producing songs with catchy beats or intend to win awards. All BTS genuinely cares about is making good, meaningful music that impacts people's lives.

As an ARMY, I can proudly say his purpose is fulfilled! Like a fan said, life goes on as long as I have these 7 reasons.
