Sometimes, my own voice shocks me. Because it sounds so great. They say he has the most ideal voice. It sounds amazing with your eyes closed. It’s true. You all can close your eyes. That’s all I’ll say about that. I listen to my songs with my eyes closed too. How have you been? I’ve been rooting for BTS who are on an overseas tour. You startled me. Last December 1st, I put out a single I wrote called “Your Lips.” I watched a lot of movies. Recently, I’ve been having fun making songs. – You’re into song-writing? / – Yes. The song you sang, “You’re the Best of My Life…” It’s been out for some time already. Yes. It came out in February, 2011. So 7 years? I bet you all didn’t know it was that old. – It feels like a recent song. / – It’s 7 years old. It wasn’t my song at first. It was going to go to Lim Jeonghee. I overheard it passing the studio and I loved it. I told the producer I’d do the guide vocals. So I sang my heart out for the guide vocals. – And made it my song. / – You stole it. You must’ve done an amazing job for the guide vocals. I guess so. Geez… You’re a thief. So… Were there songs that you really wanted to sing but didn’t get? So many. Baek Zyoung’s “Like Being Shot by a Bullet.” You wanted that song too? I went to record “I Don’t Have a Heart.” But Zyoung recorded at the studio before me. – I saw the lyrics… / – She left them behind. – But they didn’t change it yet… / – The set? Yes, so I played the song and I loved it. I said I wanted to sing it but they said no. That song would’ve suited you. Right? I thought so too. – But they said no. / – What other song? 2AM’s song “Never Let You Go.” Right. I thought the song was perfect for me. I asked if I could sing it. They said no again. They said it was for 2AM. He listens to a lot of music. What do you listen to these days? You might think this is unexpected. What is it? “Spring Day” by BTS. That song? Why? That is unexpected. This is hard for me to say… Before this song even came out… When it was just the track, I heard the first four lines or so. – They’re in the same agency. / – So… Surprising, isn’t it? They’re all like, “Why would you be there?” No! – Why would you think that? / – No, right? Even Jeon Hyunmoo is in SM. You could be in the same agency as BTS. – This is so sad. / – Anyway. Go on. I heard the first few lines and loved the song. The song was completed and BTS wrote the lyrics. The lyrics were great. RM starts off with the line, “I miss you and saying this makes me miss you more.” It’s so simple. Something anyone could say. But it really struck a chord… “I miss you and saying this makes me miss you more.” – Yes. How did they come up with that? / – Right. Even though it’s pretty obvious. Yes, it’s an obvious statement… Try singing it. Alright… This is… (“Spring Day”) ♪ I miss you ♪ ♪ And saying this makes me miss you more ♪ ♪ Even when I look at your photo, I miss you ♪ ♪ Time is so cruel ♪ ♪ I hate us ♪ ♪ It’s so hard for us to see each other now ♪ ♪ It’s just winter here ♪ ♪ It’s even winter in August ♪ ♪ My heart runs with time ♪ ♪ Like a lonely train in the winter ♪ ♪ I’ll hold your hand halfway around the world ♪ ♪ I want this winter to end ♪ ♪ How long must my longing fall like snow ♪ ♪ For that spring day? ♪ ♪ Snow is falling ♪ ♪ We become more distant ♪ ♪ I miss you ♪ ♪ I miss you ♪ ♪ How long must I wait? ♪ ♪ How many nights must I wait? ♪ ♪ Until I see you ♪ ♪ Until we meet ♪ ♪ I miss you ♪ Honestly, when you started the first verse, it didn’t sound quite right. Just being honest. I was going to tease him when he finished singing. I was waiting. But then it kept getting better, didn’t it? It kept getting better and better. That was great. Thank you. I’m out of breath from singing 7 parts alone. They’re in the same agency. They’re loved as world-renowned artists and they’ve made headlines many times. – But you knew them before they debuted. / – Yes. – You saw how they started. / – Yes. How did it feel as a senior artist to watch that group grow? They worked very hard as trainees and they’re still working hard now. And thanks to their fans, they’re where they’re at now. I’m so proud of them. If I was in BTS, I’d ask my agency to get me a throne. I bet. I’m not just saying this because they’re my juniors. They haven’t changed at all. Not even a little bit. They still continue to work very diligently. When I watch them record, I learn from their attitude. I wish them even more success. And I want to keep working hard to become more successful and make good music so that I can continue to be a good senior to them. – Great. You support each other. / – Yes. Win, win. Yes, that’s right.
