BTS’s RM held almost a two hour long live stream with fans to review and talk about their new album MAP OF THE SOUL: 7. He went through each of the songs and gave his personal thoughts about the process of each one. When reviewing the title track, “ON,” he mentions that Jungkook suggested using the title “ON” as reverse of their older song, “N.O.”
He recalls him being the most positive about the songs when they first heard it together. The other members were a bit shocked at first when they heard the song.
He also mentions that the line “you need to go crazy to stay sane” is his favorite part of the entire song because it is hard to survive in this crazy world without going insane.
He knows that he will be able to continue on as long as we are all together in this journey called life.
"Because we are together. That's what I always believed. To stay conscious, you have to go crazy. Thank you for listening, please stay healthy. Let's continue to hold together. I love you." -NAMJOON

People may ridicule or make fun of how attached I am with @BTS_twt , but at this point I seriously don't care. Their music gives me life. Their messages inspire me. Their existence makes me happy. #AlwaysWithBangtan #ThankYouNamjoon #ThankYouBTS #남준아_사랑해
