Nam-joon, who is 29 (Korean age), also shared his hopes and plans for his upcoming 30s. He said, “I just want to figure out ways to exist as a BTS member and leader RM, and as Namjoon Kim for my 30s.” Furthermore, he expressed his feelings about the seven-year journey that BTS went through and the personality changes they acquired over time.
He said, “BTS is a really important part for me: it’s the biggest part of me. But, keeping this intensity as a team made me easy to forget who I was & why I started this thing.”
