In an interview with MBN, the boys were asked what their goals were for the 'HwaYangYeonHwa Part 1' mini album, and all of them said they wanted to be #1. Rap Monster said, "People write stuff like R=VD like it's a spell. We planted the thought of being #1 in our heads. It's not something that can be done just through our wants, but it'll only come if you keep wanting it. There's a saying, 'what you say will happen', so we want to think that way and work hard."
Suga added, "To be honest, I was pessimistic up until the last album. I'd think, no way we could do it. I think I had a complex without even knowing it. I only showed my unconfident side, so it seemed like that's what was really happening to us. So I want to promote this time with confidence. I'm not religious, but I pray every night. We want it that bad." Jungkook also said, "We pray every night with our section chief."
On what they'd do if they got #1, Jin smiled and said, "I want to swap our parts and sing the songs. I'm a vocal, but I'd rap, and the rap line will sing." V added, "I want to borrow a theater and watch a movie with our fans."
The boys have also expressed their fervent hopes by even dedicating a track on their mini album - "SKIT: Expectation!" - to talking about getting #1 (the track kind of devolves into a random talk about tax deductions, but that's BTS for you..).
Hopefully the boys can get their wish with "I Need U"!
