“I felt so thankful for that. SUGA was the only one who didn't listen to them then. He was like, 'I'll listen to them once they come out, so that I could give you feedback on the songs in the point of view from the public.' I've been doing music with RM for years since when we were both little. And he told me that he was proud to see that I'm doing this sort of music,” he continued.
