BTS members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook have had a memorable year so far. The K-pop group continued their Billboard Hot 100 series with Butter and Permission to Dance in 2021, and also received a Grammy nomination for Dynamite earlier this year. Unfortunately, the group couldn’t win the award.
With the Grammys only a few months left to announce the nominations for this year, BTS rapper Suga has again expressed his desire to be nominated for the Grammys. In a recent interview, Suga said that not only does he want to be nominated this time around, but that BTS is bringing home the trophy.
As translated by Soompi, Suga told Korean evening news program News 8, “I want us to be nominated again for a Grammy. I want to get the award.” Fans are hoping BTS will get a nomination this year, especially after their historic seven-week run at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with Butter. You passed the baton to Permission to Dance earlier this week.
About the milestone, RM said, “It feels like a dream. Times are as they are, but when we released ‘Butter’ we could never have imagined that it would hold number 1 for seven weeks in a row. For seven weeks we joked that it would be nice to have a ‘season’ Touch, “but it’s an honor that it came true.” Jin stood up to thank the ARMY for the milestone.
In addition to her musical milestones, BTS was also named the President’s Special Envoy for South Korea earlier this week by President Moon Jae In. The K-Pop group will also attend the 75th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York in September.
Dear @BTS_twt Namjoon, Jin, Yoongi, Hobi, Jimin, Tae & Jungkook, Congratulations on your appointment as Special Envoy of the President for # South Korea for Future Generations and Culture!
A well deserved title for a group that uses music and lyrics to bring hope and healing to the world. https://t.co/L2xElXsXWE

About the award, RM said: “We are part of the millennial generation and can say that we grew up with young people of the current generation. We wanted to express what we felt and learned through this process. We “have also directly and indirectly experienced social repercussions such as economic and world crises while we are watching our parents. Although we are missing in many ways compared to the dangers of 2021, we as special envoy and in the UN General Assembly want to do our best.” “It is a heavy responsibility, but we take it with a joyful heart. We will go out and do all we can and do our best to fulfill our duties before we return home.”
In an interview, the moderator asked Jungkook about his message in the Butter album. The singer had confessed that there was a time when he wanted to let go. “Because I am human too,” he wrote. When asked, Jungkook replied that there had been a difficult time in his life, but thanks to the fans, he got his way. “There was definitely a lot planned. But the plans all collapsed immediately. It was hard for me to figure out what to do, and it’s true that there was a time when I felt like I was letting go of everything. But when I saw our fans and the members next to me, of course I was able to regain my strength, “he said, translated from one of his Twitter fan accounts.
