BTS are undoubtedly still on cloud nine following their history-making win at the Billboard Music Awards couple of days ago, but the boys managed to find the time to come down from their high for a pleasant chat to Yahoo Music!
Sitting down with Lyndsey Parker, the boys covered a wide variety of topics and fan questions, such as their favourite song amongst their own discography (Suga's is his own "Agust D", Jimin's is "2! 3!" and Rap Monster's is "Not Today"), the rise of K-pop in America right now, and their rituals before going onstage for a concert.
But perhaps the sweetest moment came up when each BTS member were asked what was the first album they ever bought. Suga's was an Eminem record; Jin and V bought a Girls' Generation album; Jimin's was a BoA album; and J-Hope's was G.O.D. When it was Jungkook's turn however, he was a little hesitant before he shyly admitted that the first ever album he bought was IU!
Beyond Jungkook showing some love for IU, there was also a lot of love being shown for various other Western and Korean artists. When asked whom they would like to collaborate with, living or dead, BTS responded with a variety of interesting answers ranging from popular artists today like Tinashe, Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth, Eminem and The Chainsmokers, to late legends such as Tupac and Whitney Houston.
