Upon releasing a new chart-topping album, BTS appeared on Naver V Live to meet fans who have waited for the return of the septet.

The hourlong show, hosted by Suga as a radio DJ, invited members to casually talk about the new album, including their favorite songs and how they felt about the collaboration with big names like Halsey and Ed Sheeran.

“The Armys have been waiting and anticipating, so we wanted to return as soon as possible,” said Jimin. “I am happy and excited to meet you with new music.”

V said he wants to make good memories with the new songs, while Jin is happy to return with good music.

On embarking on a new musical chapter with the release, the members said the album carries a message of wanting to get to know others, specifically BTS’ fans.

The broadcast, proving BTS’ massive popularity, had garnered more than 13.2 million viewers as of Sunday.

GOT7 tunes in from Taiwan

Three members of GOT7, JB, Yugyeom and Mark, went on the V app from Taiwan on a rainy evening.

All wearing baseball cabs, they sat on a couch in their hotel room to read fans comments and answer questions.

They had returned from doing touristy activities in the country, such as visiting Taiwanese night markets to try different food and play games. They had barbeque and mango shaved ice for dessert.

“I am so full, we ate so much,” said JB.

“I loved the ambience of the Taiwanese night market,” said Yugyeom. “We played darts and ball games, and it was so much fun. We did a toy claw crane, but we all failed at picking stuffed toys.”

“It was a concert that was both moving and fun,” said Shownu.

The members said they enjoyed the lively and exciting performance in front of fans, known as Monbebe.

They said they had put in long hours for the concert, and asked fans to stay excited and not to reveal too many spoilers for the concert, for others coming on the second day.
