BTS leader RM shared that the songs they wrote were not purposely created to reach out to people around the world but rather to express what they feel and are experiencing when they were teenagers.

While this is the case, other youth worldwide just happened to have the same thought and emotion, and so it led to BTS being recognized.

BTS's music encompassing a wide range of ideas such as self-love, mental health, self-confidence, struggles of everyday life, and more, has allowed them to resonate with the youth not only in South Korea but also overseas.
