“You, Army, blew me away again. Yes, I sobbed,” he admitted. “But I really am a stoic person. I don’t shed tears even when I’m scared or hurt. I don’t cry. But when it comes to you, Army, I do.”

He added, “I also was injured (during the tour) in Europe, so that could be another reason.”

About the fans’ surprise tribute to the band, he said, “I thought the wrong song was coming out for the concert and panicked. Then again, the melody was sweet. It took me seconds to realize that it was ‘(Epilogue:) Young Forever’ and when the fans started to sing it in unison, it just blew me away. Then tears started to flow,” said the youngest member of the band.

After recounting a few memorable moments from the concerts, Jungkook also talked about Bangtan Festa, a 10-day event celebrating BTS’ debut that started with a display of the band members’ family pictures. “I’m glad that many of you liked the photos,” he said.

“Do you like my pink shirt? I bought this at the pop-up store. I didn’t bring anything with short sleeves, so I had to buy this,” said Ahn Sung-mi, sporting a T-shirt with the word “Persona” across the chest. “You guys recommended this, and I’m loving it,” she added with a smile.

“Yesterday I went to the concert and it was amazing. There was a press conference as well, so I was in work mode … but today … I’m trying to enjoy the vibe here,” said the reporter. She also had familiarized herself with the huge legendary venue and was now more confident in navigating it, she said.

Having seen the band up close and personal at the media event, Ahn happily reported that she was excited and that the band members were nice. “Despite their busy schedule, they answered a lot of questions,” she said.

Despite having slept for only about three hours -- she lost sleep writing an article about the historic K-pop event as well as the full transcript from the press conference -- Ahn seemed animated. “I hope I will get energy from here,” she said gesturing toward the stadium.

“Usually I do this in the studio, but unfortunately someone is using it so I am elsewhere. How great it would be if I had my own studio. Maybe later,” he began.

“I had such a great time (in the US),” said the leader of the boy band after showcase events in New Jersey, Los Angeles and Houston. “It was hot in Houston, but also felt that much hotter onstage,” he added.

After going through some of the fans’ incoming messages, Bang Chan began playing songs, starting with Cheat Codes’ “No Promises” featuring Demi Lovato. “I came to know this band recently and their music is so good, I think. They do this EDM and house-based music and the songs are very nice to listen to,” he explained, moving on to another song by the trio titled “Balenciaga.”

“We did not have any specific wish this time, but this has all been thanks to you, Agasae. It’s been really happy days,” said Yugyeom, addressing the band’s fandom community.

“I also want to thank Jinyoung for always calming us down, whatever the results are, keeping us from feeling down,” said Bambam.

“It is sad that we are wrapping up the activity only after two weeks but we will see you again at concerts,” said Jackson.

“I can’t wait for them,” Mark chimed in.

“It was really dreamlike,” said Youngjae. “Suddenly there was this firecracker and I realized that we won the first spot,” he added, thanking his parents as well.

“We also want to thank JB for making such a good song,” said the members.

“But you don’t look that appreciative,” joked the leader, who co-wrote the title track.

Jackson instantly got out of his chair, bent down on one knee and offered JB the pink heart-shaped balloon only to bonk JB in the face with it.
