In 2017, j-hope once posted a video discussing his experience at a Coldplay concert in Seoul, South ̾k̾o̾r̾e̾a.
After returning to ̾k̾o̾r̾e̾a during BTS’s 2017 Wings Tour, he attended Coldplay’s long-awaited concert with RM: “I just watched the performance of an artist that I’ve liked since I was young, so I was able to gain energy from that. As it’s been a long time since Coldplay has had a performance, I went to watch it.”
He revealed the concert helped him to see things from the perspective of a fan in the aud̾i̾e ̾nce instead of as an artist, filling him with a unique type of joy: “As I was watching it, from the perspective of being a fan of the artist, I really felt that sort of ‘nervous and tingly happiness’ that I haven’t felt for a long time.”
This also gave him a greater understanding and appreciation of his fans: “Also, because I have the experience and perspective of someone who does concerts, I also realized and shared that feeling of gratitude towards fans who like me and listen to my music.”
The atmosphere revitalized him, giving him the energy to complete the remainder of the tour and put on the best show possible for his fans: “I felt that (just like Coldplay), I must also put on a good performance. I will be inspired from that and be sure to päṩṩ on this enregy to the fans who love and support me.”
