Yass finally an interviewer with some journalistic integrity up in here! I can’t tell you how happy I was watching this. It’s 12:15a.m. and I was about to go to bed but before that I just had to check to see if any new BTS developments had dropped first. Boy am I glad I did since now when I go to bed, I can go being all extra happy! Cuz remember how yesterday I was kinda down on BTS not really getting any meaningful interviews, well that has changed big time thanks to this guy named Zach. Him all by his lonesome self has just put many respectable publications to shame because he was able to cover a lot of what we ARMYs have been asking for from the beginning. 😀
He touched on BTS‘s socially conscientious lyrics and he actually brought up their collab with UNICEF(The United Nations Children’s Fund) too. Making him the first person to do so which is just bonkers considering how many interviews they’ve had already. And you could really see the members faces light up when he did. Probs because they have been waiting so long for somebody to. However I think it was early on even before that that they were able to really get into it cuz right of the bat you could simply tell Zach put in the effort and did some actual research. Like I swear he must have noticed all of our previous complaints and been like, “don’t worry I got you fam.” He truly nailed it and I hope ARMYs pay him back by giving him the appreciation he deserves.
Going forward I say we share this to other news outlets so they can get the hint. Show them the bar has been raised. Also in addition show all these future interviewers how they should make more of an effort to let the members feel comfortable in responding in Korean. I say this because clearly as you can see in this video you can get some better responses out the members that way, and it looks like RM is totally ok with the role of translator. Although, hey if you CAN get a professional translator in there please do so. 😛
Anywho what are your thoughts on this interview? Did you like it like I did? Cuz I’m here hoping with my fingers crossed that their appearance on Ellen can go this good. 🙂 Like seriously Ellen please don’t let me down and at the very least bring up the Love Myself campaign too. Clearly there is something here with these boys so we should stop treating them like some passing fad. Instead let’s use the opportunity to let others know that if they need something inspirational, motivational, and comforting in their lives… BTS and their music is here waiting for them. 😀
