BTS' Rap Monster talked about the group's goals.

He had a phone interview with 'Kim Hyun Jung's News Show'. During the interview, he was asked various things, one of which was BTS' goals for the future. Rap Monster said, "Our next goal is to have a world stadium tour. A stadium holds at least 30,000-40,000 and up to 50,000. I want to say our next goal is to definitely have a stadium tour all over the world." When the interviewer asked if he meant having an audience of 30,000-40,000 such as when Michael Jackson toured, Rap Monster confirmed that was indeed what he meant.


He then named Highlight as the group BTS as a whole looked up to. He said, "They are now known as Highlight. Back when they were B2ST, we had a chance to watch their concert at the gymnastics theater in 2012, all the way from the back. They were so amazing and we told ourselves that we wanted to be just like them. We still talk about that sometimes."

I dont consider myself as an ARMY...I only like Rap Mon, but I am so proud of their achivements. They did us (kpop fan in general) proud!

I just read through the comments tho and I feel disgusted. Isn't every kpop group supposed to look up to ALL their sunbaes??? And I've seriously never heard of a boy kpop group that doesn't look up to BIGBANG...

istari Monday, May 29, 2017

I'm a fan of both groups. It makes me feel so happy that BTS look up to Highlight as I stan them both a LOT. :).

I'm far from an army, but congrats to bts for their achievements!

Haneefah Tuesday, May 23, 2017

I swear, they just keep getting bigger and bigger xD ♥♥

Potaetae Tuesday, May 23, 2017

So... including Europe or nah?

acargar Potaetae Tuesday, May 23, 2017

It's so scary to do a european tour right now. With all those attacks and stuffs, you just cant help be think negative. I swear we need world peace.

riia_jackson acargar Wednesday, May 24, 2017

I don't want to admit it , But i was also demanding Europe tour until recently !! i still want them to come but honestly i'd rather them not coming and staying safe than coming and being at risk !! Even tho i know that that's exactly what we shouldn't think cz that's what they want us to do :/ The world must keep going and we must keep o trying to be happy while praying for those who we lost ... I'll keep on visiting Europe and travelling but I don't want them here Until everything i Safer

hiroonakamura Tuesday, May 23, 2017

has BTS been around since 2012? i thought they were much newer than that :S

neki hiroonakamura Tuesday, May 23, 2017

they debuted in 2013 actually

CassiElfArmy hiroonakamura Tuesday, May 23, 2017

BTS was watching B2ST or now Highlight concert when they were still trainee. And then, they had a dream to be like B2ST/Highlight who had a big concert with so much audiences

riia_jackson hiroonakamura Wednesday, May 24, 2017

BTS debuted 13 june 2013

hermesdragon Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Lol. You can see the marketing that the company is doing is extremely deep. At this point pretty much every word that comes out of this group is probably dictated by company. They literally make this statement every few months but change the name of the Idol group each time. Say we love "XX" group and Reduce the number of anti's from "XX" groups fandom. Well done Bighit. Well done.

hiroonakamura hermesdragon Tuesday, May 23, 2017

how many groups have they claimed to love or look up to?

CassiElfArmy hermesdragon Tuesday, May 23, 2017

don't be salty. If you watch all of BTS interview from debut till now, they call Bigbang as their role mode on music so much times caused Big Bang was a World Star, and they want to be success like Big Bang. But, this interview, Rap Monster said BTS like Highlight/B2ST caused BTS ever watch their concert around 2012 on a huge stadium and so much audiences. BTS has a dream to has a big concert like Highlight/B2ST, that's why they called Highlight. don't be so bitter. They could have so much role model. and that's doesn't illegal.

Lotus_Girl hiroonakamura Tuesday, May 23, 2017

ALMOST EVERY BIG BAND OUT THERE :p

rglover641 hermesdragon Tuesday, May 23, 2017

So you can't look up to multiple groups???? Since when??

LveKimTae hiroonakamura Tuesday, May 23, 2017

From what I know they've claimed to really admire BB and Highlight.

riia_jackson hermesdragon Wednesday, May 24, 2017

The thing is , what u said maybe true .. It maybe true Marketing stategies !! But the thing abt BTS and BIGHIT unlike other companies who _literally_ Oblige their artist into doing things and saying things .. BigHit include them more in taking decision and asks their opinion and let them speak freely and express their opinions ( ofc as any other company they would stop them be4 anything stupid is said) So if they said they Looked up to Highlight i believe it's 80% their true own opinion

Lotus_Girl riia_jackson Wednesday, May 24, 2017

it's called hypocrisy, using another band name to hype yourself? it's disgusting, it only say you have no talent and your music is just a bunch of lyrics with no meaning and you need to use others so you feel complete

riia_jackson Lotus_Girl Wednesday, May 24, 2017

what are u saying srsly !!! Using another Band name !! since their debut they've been saying they love BigBang .. did u see them blow up right after saying that !! did u hear of'em cz they said that ?!! NO !! every rookie grp that debuts does that , maybe yes some are trying to use others "fam" But what does this have to do with talent and lyrics and " using others to feel complete" !! this makes no sense !! So does this mean that if you listen to any kind of music whatsoever or any artist , u'r using them to feel complete !!! Anyway! i tried to understand what u were saying but couldn't ! but one thing is Clear, U hate BTS and their Music .. fine u can just Ignore the hell out of them and leave ! why bother read their articles!

LveKimTae Lotus_Girl Wednesday, May 24, 2017

"you need to use others so u feel complete"? wtf does this nonsense even mean? lmfao

Lotus_Girl LveKimTae Thursday, May 25, 2017

I don't wanna mention any names but you are forcing me too, didn't big hit used BIGBANG tag in YT to spread their comeback in 2016? didn't BIG HIT used EXO name in media play to hype BTS? should I continue? if you wanna be ignorant about facts, ahh facts that can be easily proved than be my guest but please don't show your ignorance around me, cos it make me sick and disgusted.

CassiElfArmy Lotus_Girl Thursday, May 25, 2017

then show us the fact. youtube? everybody know that youtube had often error or crash. two or three months ago YT delete 35M viewers from BIGHIT YT Account and delete 2 tags. But, soon the viewers and the tag are back. that's just an error. Searching before claiming. we said beside fact, not just an assumption.

riia_jackson Lotus_Girl Thursday, May 25, 2017

U know what, this discussion is literally leading nowhere !! U claim that they used big names .. well guess what they're Bigger than them now ( not trying to start fanwars, i'm a VIP too and i love EXO) but srsly .. so sick of ppl attacking BTS just cz their favs didn't make it this big !! U want to think that they used ppl to get to where they are , Believe what u want just don't go everywhere spreading "facts" and saying things that aren't true !

Lotus_Girl CassiElfArmy Friday, May 26, 2017

lmao now blaming it on YT xD that's so funny

Lotus_Girl riia_jackson Friday, May 26, 2017

as I said if you wanna keep been ignorant do it but not in front of me or around me, I don't need to be sick or disgusted :D

BTS loves BigBang? ARMYs will support BB BTS loves Highlight? ARMYs will support HighLight Did BTS ask their fans to support them? No. Why're people mad? Are they so insecure of BTS snatching their faves fans? People have brains and IQs, If they like a group, they will. I myself like Jimin BTS , Luhan & Sehun & Kai EXO, Used to be Big fan of Gdragon BB, Jaejoong TVXQ. SUJU, BEST, B.A.P, 2PM, WINNERs etc too For girl group, I'm IU biased, and SNSD. But my tastes changed by time and based on how these IDOLS make their music. So I don't find why is it wrong for NJ or any of other Kpop idols to name different "sunbaes" as their favorite idols who they looked up to when they were trainees for various reasons. If it's a market strategy, NJ could have done it million times but As far as I know BTS only mentioned BB in the past and with HL it's the first time? JK looked up to Gdragon BB Jm looked up to Taeyang BB V liked TOP in BB BTS looked up to HL (BEAST) because of their music and they admired their big stadium concerts (which also stated how strong and loyal their fandoms are. That's the real proofs of how their music reached people) @LOTUS_GIRL They used bigger artists names to make themselves "relevant". I think with recent win in BBMAs and 300m+ VOTES, they're already relevant enough. Calling them No talent? Lyrics have no meaning? I hope you're trolling. Their music is literally healing and saving people life that's why they have a big hyped, loyal, savage fandom. Do you even read their lyrics or at least listen to one of their songs? You're just simply being salty and throwing hates right now.

What the fxxk I've just read some of the comments and people are mentioning Bigbang more than Highlight. And I though more people will start to show respect to Highlight now that they learned BTS looks up to them. How is this related to Bigbang in any ways please stop don't bring others in this. Highlight is an amazing group.

fantasticlau Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Oh my god he actually mentioned Highlight... I'm glad. Highlight seriously deserves a huge respect as a recycled group that did amazingly well and made their previous companies regret their decisions. (maybe the BTS members somehow relate to them with this situation since they also came up here from zero) That, and they also deserve respect for enduring the horrible management of CUBE until the very end of their contracts and not disbanding like a random group but keeping doing what they want to do, and most importantly doing these together. RapMon is really a wise dude, and I hope they achieve their next goal. They deserve it.
