Stonehearted Daegu Oppa? Think Again!
The seven members of the boy-group BTS have definitely gone through a lot to achieve the fame and fortune they own today, climbing to every milestone with humble goals and a personality to match. All of them strive over long hours and rigorous training to be where they are, which has caused some members to burst in tears when they do eventually make all their dreams come true. That is, except for the group’s rapper, who can be seen without a single tear any where near his eyes, Suga.
Being one of the older BTS members and also one of the longest-term trainees among them, fans might have expected him to be the most sentimental of the group, due to all the hardships he’s faced to stand where is today. Despite it, Suga is one of the members who rarely cry and, instead, calmly makes his thank you speeches in times where the other members are rendered speechless. His cold as ice facade, though, comes with a few exceptions in which he has teared up and even outright cried due to the weight that those milestones bear on his shoulders.
So what are these moments? Why do they matter so much for Suga and the other members of BTS? How did the fans respond to seeing Suga cry, something that does not happen very often? Let’s take a look at the times Suga has cried at BTS’s pivotal moments!
Suga Crying Compilation
One of the instances in which Suga’s emotions overcame him was during the 2016 HYYH Epilogue concert, which was BTS’s first concert series. The concert was done as a way to honor the success of their HYYH series, which garnered part of the fame they comfortably sit on today. This concert can also be called BTS’s first big and commercialized concert, as the group had only performed at smaller concerts abroad and at domestic fan meetings before. It’s only normal for Suga to suddenly feel sentimental on stage during the encore of the concert. Check out the video above!
Concerts seem to be a place that hold a lot of sentiment for Suga, as in their next concert series, based on their album Wings, he once again teared up. His speech was filled with his feelings regarding the growth of their concert and how it goes by so quickly. They started out having a meeting with fans in a place called AX Hall, then it moved to the Gymnastics Stadium, and now finally at Gocheok Dome. Gocheok Dome, being one of the biggest stadiums and concert venues in Korea, with a total of four different floors, must be such an achievement to him, as BTS sold out all the seats.
He continued by saying that he had made sure he would not cry for the first day of the concert, then the second day of the concert, but as they are on the final day he just cannot help but be sentimental. Suga only wanted to talk about the good things they have achieved, but in that, he just made himself very grateful and thankful to the fans, and that is why he could not hold back the tears.
In the speech, he also reflected on the goal BTS has set up for themselves, a promise to the fans that they will sing and make music that fights against prejudice. It took them 5 years to finally get there, to the point where people will listen to the justice they want to communicate through their songs, but he thinks all of it would not be achieved if not for BTS’s fans, Army. Suga then took the time to thank the fans, no longer holding back his tears of gratitude and happiness, thanking them for the supporting BTS up to that day and to anticipate what they have to offer in the future.
BTS’s ultimate goal though, came in the form of winning the daesang award, Artist of The Year, to be exact, in 2016. The year had been nothing but memorable for the group, with them gaining more and more fans by the minute. Fortunately, the effort has all paid back, with an award in the form of a daesang, something most groups are still working towards. BTS has mentioned in the past that it will always be one of their goals and milestones, yet they did not know that they will reach it that fast.
In this particular clip, we do not see Suga outright speaking or crying, but from the other videos we know that it is all out of gratitude to the the fans and their efforts that lead to all these achievements. To top that, Suga has also mentioned in the previous concert ment that he would not cry until BTS won a daesang, making his promise moot from that point and onwards.
Recently, BTS has gone on to win more daesang awards and other notable honors from different institutions, even making it to the Grammys as a nominee for their album packaging. They attended the Grammys as an award presenter and they keep on pushing the envelope for what a Korea boy-group can do in the global music industry. So far there is still no news of a possible comeback, but most fans are predicting the summer or sometime after Bighit’s rookie group, TXT, debuts.
