"I hope that it will be like that and you won’t go through any hard times. We’re going to all be here together so that can happen. Thank you so much," he continued. "Lately we’re all meeting to have discussions so we can make the album. The last time, we talked a lot about whether such-and-such a topic or idea would be good," he noted.
Jimin revealed that the concept of the record has been decided and that each of his bandmates has been working hard on writing songs. "Since I’m the PM, I put all the songs the members wrote together and sent them to the agency...I also sent in a few songs, but I think mine won’t make it, because the members have sent in so many great songs," he said.
