Ep8 I NEED YOU | BTS: Burn the Stage


I’ve always been the kind of person who likes to be by himself People invading my personal space is not a good thing for me In a way, I’m living with
perfect strangers That’s what we’re doing,
like in the army It was pretty stressful at first With seven of us, it was hard
to get on with everyone But it wasn’t anyone’s fault –
not theirs, not mine People are just different When we were trainees,
we clashed from time to time There were many times,
we just couldn’t work it out I never raged so hard in my life… That was something new If I embarrassed myself,
I had to deal with it. Not getting any alone time
or personal space was hard But at some point,
that was no longer an issue The moments of joy, sadness,
warmth and so much more were shared with the guys
Me too, when I was down That brought us really close together In some ways, the members
mean everything to me The guys give me strength and I hope to do the same That’s how I think of them Learning through them
keeps me from slacking off That helps me stay on track After making it as BTS,
the guys mean a lot to me We can relate to each other
200 or even 300 percent So it’s not as hard as before I learn a lot from the guys I’m feeling happy to come to Taipei that I’ll miss it so much
with this good news To be honest, I don’t remember what I said back then
or what my attitude was like But I was ready for anything That was when we started the tour Now, we’re almost at its end I learned and felt a lot
as the concerts went on And the way I go about it
seems to have changed It was all about the concert then Now I’m more laid back,
I can keep it more cool, and I enjoy the concert more
and something like that If you ask who got the most
out of our concerts, I’d have to say JIN Zoom in on me Keep it just like that One more time, one more When I was very young,
I looked up to my dad so I wanted to become
a salary-man just like him Then I watched this one drama and I wanted to pursue acting
due to a certain someone After I was picked up by
Big Hit Entertainment, my dream was to become
a singer like I am today It went as you’d expect Those promising usually
get more attention Before I turned age 20 or 21
to start out as a trainee, I had zero interest in singing So singing wasn’t my thing I was around 20 or 21 when I really took to singing I’m not exactly phenomenal, but I’ve been practicing hard to gradually get better at my work so you’d be able to see
how much I’ve improved I say it’s JIN I think he’s learned
to sing live better now I can notice a fuller, steadier tone I’m pretty much the only one who saw JIN sing on stage
for most of the tour He’s become remarkably better He sings well and with ease Seeing those changes in him
has made me realize that people can really
grow from their experience Watching him made me
want to do better myself and I came to see that
the guys also help me grow It’s either one or the other Too much change too fast,
or not fast enough It might be slow in coming
for some members, while some are undergoing
dramatic changes I think that’s how it is
for everyone at this time A time of growth and change To stage at the dome,
hit No.1 on the Billboard Chart… All that are good dreams to have But having such great friends, making music for a long time,
and giving concerts is what I dream of doing We’ll keep coming back
to show what we’re made of Here’s to finishing up
our successful Taiwan tour Great work, everybody This is really good It’s spicy Do you know how to say
spicy in Taiwanese? What is it? I don’t know, I was asking you That means hot We’re always busy eating at first then later start talking
when we’re about finished Yeah, you’re right We devour the food at the start Then about five minutes into it, our chopsticks start to slow down This is good, but don’t we need
to discuss the concert? Let’s eat Do you know how to open
a champagne bottle? You can just pull out the cork I love that pop sound it makes This can liven up the mood That was a good pop That was awesome Wow, I’ll be able to enjoy
drinking in a long time In South America, J-HOPE… I’m J~ I’m J~ THE WINGS TOUR is really over When did we start the tour? – February
– February In Chile No, we started out on March 9 On March 9, in Chile – If you include Korea…
– The tour abroad… It was February 18,
the day of my birthday – Yeah
– We left on March 9, on my birthday It was March 9 when we arrived Why keep saying it was
on your birthdays? I’m not lying,
we arrived on my birthday – The day before…
– It was precisely March 9 We had to shoot until dawn
the day before we left It was March, but freezing cold – How crazy
– We went to Chile first Yeah, we left for Chile on March 9 We hadn’t packed yet,
so we woke during the night to jam our stuff in suitcases JUNGKOOK and I went in
to wish Yoongi a happy birthday Saying happy birthday,
we took cake with us when… “Yeah, whatever” I was like, “Blow out the candles” He didn’t… so I blew them out “Come on, together” I could hardly keep awake then JUNGKOOK, this year…
I was so moved by this guy You know that one store
where I always shop for clothes I asked them to hold something
so I can buy it later Few days later, I went home and I saw their bag on my bed He got it for me That was the first time
JUNGKOOK got me something It feels good when you get gifts He doesn’t mention me once I got him the same brand gift
before JUNGKOOK did Taehyung, that’s why I always
wear what you gave me Taehyung wrote me a letter He asked the store to show
their two best options He said he couldn’t choose,
so he got me both – That’s awesome
– He was like, I got you both He sure is a worldwide superstar Great work, you guys…
Wait, we don’t have JIMIN here Make it look like he left How can he leave already? JIMIN said he was tired
and turned in two hours ago Yeah, that’s understandable But everyone else held out You guys… how can you… I heard what you guys said JIN, how can you be like that? Great work, everybody I leave for the bathroom
and this is what you do to me JIMIN has come back
since he left two hours ago Great work, guys What nonsense is that? Enjoy your vacation Have fun I’d have nothing to say
if I were injured, but what I have is just
a bad case of sore muscles It’s better than letting it get worse We got a lot more left to do I’m saying this because
I know exactly how you feel Even if you stand on stage,
I don’t think our fans would be able to enjoy
your performance They’d be anxious for you You need to rest in order to
ease your sore muscles I know all too well
why they want JIMIN to rest I can also relate to JIMIN But you have to really rest
to relieve muscle pain I’ve been through it before
and had to rest for three weeks I mean, having to perform 20 songs
would really make it worse I know that whatever we say,
it wouldn’t make it okay We know, we all know that Anyways, let’s hang in there Yeah, okay Today is our last,
so let’s wrap it up nicely I hate the fact that
I can’t be on stage today By missing out, our performance
would look awkward on stage That might distract the audience
and fans might worry about me We worked so hard for this,
and it’s the finale of our tour There’s no knowing when
we’ll be back for fans to see us So I felt really bad about it Thank you, everybody And I’m terribly sorry It’s okay, it’s okay Let’s get together again soon I love you and thank you “Two! Three!” It’s our first official song for fans So we’re quite fond of the song We always try to look at
all our ARMY fans in the stands Everyone there sang along to it We don’t often do tours abroad,
so some were even crying That choked me up Every time we sing on stage, there’s that overwhelming feeling We think of it as more of
a healing experience Like what soothes you I can’t express it in words Especially when we finish
the song “Two! Three!” Fans go on singing
even when the song ended They sing the song just for us We use a different language, so they have to memorize it by ear They must have listened
to the song over and over I’m so moved What should I say… ARMY fans are those who touch our hearts I think that this song,
years after or even in decades, it will still remain in our hearts Hi there Good morning What a fine weather
to be traveling to the USA We finally arrived in America In just ten months time, it’s just absurd to see how
big time we’ve become We really wonder how far we can go It’s something that no one else
from Korea has done before It wasn’t even in our mind
to make it our goal We met The Chainsmokers,
Steve Aoki and other great artists, and they all said the same thing “You have amazing fans” They are the ones
who made us who we are They brought us all the way here and we’re far from daunted What kind of music we do what kind of fans we have and what we’re up to now
can be all explained The last concert To be honest with you,
I didn’t think it’d ever end We didn’t expect to put on
an encore concert It feels like years have past And this is… This is the last episode of
BTS LIVE TRILOGY Let’s do this My part of the bridge sounds weird – I’ll tell them
– Yes Because we used MA-1
in-ears for every concert… Do we wear the same outfit
for the opening song? You can use this sound They’d see us leave the stage I think it’d be better to end
after another chorus – Talk to the director
– Director! I can’t really lay the specifics of where the improvement was made The members and I improved
in diverse sets of areas That’s made us guys more
experienced and professional Simply put, we turned awesome Tomorrow, we should try
and arrange the whole thing We need it by Wednesday morning
so we’d have it down to rehearse it well on Thursday All right, we’ll try to finish up
as soon as we can “Now I’m finally home”
That was what came to mind Having come back to Korea
to hold a concert again was quite comforting for us It felt very different from
our first concert It made me feel that
time really flew by quickly But on the day of the concert,
there was this sense of emptiness Okay Let’s get through our last concert! – You look good in that
– Let’s hang in there – Bangtan, Bangtan
– Bang Bangtan When we first started off
THE WINGS TOUR… For our stage “Not Today” the moment the door opened… I could never forget that moment I was playing it cool, but I couldn’t see anything We appeared on stage
when the LED doors opened I was thinking that our entrance would rather look cute than cool There was so much light and excitement That really blew us away When the curtain fell
and our music started playing, what I felt then… At that very moment,
what we saw from the stage… It’s something I won’t ever forget A great deal of what
we thought wasn’t possible happened for us this year That’s right It was all thanks to
ARMY fans here with us today While we’ve been on our tour, we also performed on stage alone We did it many times over But today, it feels like
this is our first time again Maybe not our first,
but it’s a great new feeling The challenges we faced in the tour didn’t feel so hard to figure out now that we know
how to deal with the issues But when we got through one,
more started to appear “When would this ever end?” Such thoughts came to mind Even if three or four years go by, this concert made me think that there’s no end to having problems Still, I’d like for that day to come when I can truly be ready on stage not too far future from now It felt overwhelming at first We were excited, but felt pressured We wanted stages of our own,
eager to do a good job Also a little frightening,
mixed with different feelings I think that’s why at first, I had trouble concentrating
on my solo piece Because of all the distractions But now, I’m trying express
my thoughts into the song At first, it was all too hectic I just thought it was a hard song A song that could undo me
That’s what I thought But now, I can lose myself
to the song on stage or try to express how I feel It’s easier to keep my cool
now that I’ve more used to it Instead of thinking that
I need to do a much better job since I’m alone on stage,
I just wanted to do my best and enjoy the time while I’m at it I had forgotten how fun it was
to be up there singing Why I wanted to take
to the stage in the first place is finally coming back to me
these recent days Doing well isn’t good enough now Only those who stood on stage
would know how this feels I failed to remember that until now Now it’s all rushing back to me We’re learning from experience,
whatever they may be Being new and original
can’t be done every time We’ve been at this for five years But I think we have done
a good job so far to keep that original appeal I want to do this for a long time I don’t expect this young energy and popularity to go on forever Even if we’re up for the challenge, whether that many fans will be there to support us and our music
can’t really be certain Oh gosh Today is really our last day This kind of makes me feel like
I’m graduating school People around me say that
they’re very proud I’m grateful for each and every
stage you have given me You’ve been patiently
waiting for us to come back That makes us feel confident The great energy you give us is that much meaningful to us We started out in hopes of
sharing our music Finally, after five years time,
we are now able to… This year was full of milestones for us All our hard work paid off
thanks to your love and support We cried when we made debut We cried our eyes out,
afraid that you might leave us We even asked ourselves…
“What do we do now?” What now, this time? Would this make them like us? Maybe they won’t like this stuff That’s all we talked about That’s how it was like,
and we won’t ever forget it I don’t want to forget…
I won’t let those moments go Because that’s a part of us now I’m certain there will be
much more bumps ahead There will be hard times But now we know How this many people
reward us with their trust And that we have your
big love and support So we won’t let pain
or sadness run our lives And we won’t let fear
hold us back from being BTS Fans who shared their youth with us will be there, true and loyal Growing old along with such fans and sharing more to come
is what matters the most to us We don’t want to
just look ahead and run but be glad for what we have and enjoy the moment with ARMY fans “Hey, we come together as one” We often joke around saying that I hope fans give love to all seven That’s what I’d like the most BTS is made up of seven guys And the staff who helped us out… We’re all in this together We’ve accomplished things
what others haven’t yet tried, so I hope they take pride
in what they make happen Our great thirst to be on stage and our hard work and passion
for music won’t ever change I want us to become
a team with good reason I want us to receive
that much love and support and be able to let that show I want to say that our hard work won the hearts of so many fans We’ve been lucky,
but we worked for that luck And our fans gave us
the chance to pull through [Looking for answers when there
aren’t any, but we still learn] [Isn’t that what life is about?] [We all have lots to pitch in
There’s no knowing what will come] [But hard work will get us somewhere] [I’m grateful for the award,
but I enjoyed the concerts more] [I wanted to share our music and
who we are] [It’s like I’m at a another time and space
Feels like when I first loved dancing] [The stage is my world that heals me] [It’s hard at times, but it’s as if
I’m addicted to basking in your love] [When I awake, I want to hurry on stage
just for you] [I can see others, but not myself
If I’ve grown from all this experience] [that’s because my guys were there
to push me ahead] [I’ve learned to look back
and appreciate my times of trial] [as they are also what made me]
