Since debuting in 2013, BTS has taken over the world and gained millions of fans worldwide with the members’ talent, visuals, and charming personalities. However, one of the things that ARMYs love the most about BTS is their honesty and the fact that they don’t hide the part of them that is so real and that people relate to.
In particular, member Suga has recently gained attention from fans after soмєтнing he said in an interview with GQ Magazine.
The topic of Suga’s interview seemed to focus on the idea of dreams. The interviewer asked Suga what topics, aside from the concept of dreams, reality, loneliness, did the group still want to write about. Despite “dreams” being mentioned, Suga explained that this would always be in the songs.
“Don’t you think we’ll keep talking about our dreams? I continue to live with dreams, and I’ll continue to dream in the future.” — Suga
For many people, dreams are almost seen as goals that need to be achieved and vital to growing up. Yet, GQ knew all about Suga’s approach to dreams and asked him about his philosophy that, “It’s okay to not have a dream.”
Although Suga is known as one of the quieter members of BTS, his words have so much meaning as he explained that there should be no pressure to have dreams.
“Dreams are just dreams. When I say it’s okay to not have a dream, it’s because you don’t really need one. You shouldn’t have to struggle so much in order to live your life.” — Suga
Looking at the billions of people in the world, Suga then touched upon the pressures put on young people nowadays to have their lives set or plans put in place for a future that is always changing.
He also showcased just how much he knows about ARMYs worldwide and the stresses they go through, adding, “It’s often suggested that they’ve failed if they don’t start out on a particular path or continue along as expected…” but he had the perfect advice for those worrying.
“But as you live, you realize life doesn’t work that way. It would be good if children and youth didn’t blame themselves too much, because it’s not their fault.” — Suga
For Suga, he made it clear in the interview that not having dreams shouldn’t be soмєтнing you feel ashamed of despite all of these expectations.
In particular, he explained that there shouldn’t be a point where you feel the need to compare dreams to others because each person is unique.
“And don’t compare yourself to other people either. There is absolutely no need for you to compare the size of your dream to someone else’s dream.” — Suga
Although it might seem hard to follow because of the pressures from around you, Suga made sure to use his own experiences.
He emphasized that it’s okay not to know everything all the time, adding that, unlike people think, he isn’t someone who lives with “grandiose dreams.”
“I don’t have a dream right now either. Does that make me miserable? No, it doesn’t. Rather, I’m at peace. I’m sure another dream will come to me. I believe it’s a good, worthwhile life to achieve dreams like this, one by one.” — Suga
When the article was released, ARMYs worldwide shared their thoughts on Suga’s responses, and many found it comforting to them, especially during a time where there is so much uncertainty.
Once again, Suga has proven just how much BTS understands ARMYs and the problems that young people have gone through.
