Life during the pandemic has not been easy for everyone; however, during the most challenging times BTS V is looking at the brighter side of things in life.

During a solo interview he had recently with Rolling Stone, the singer-actor talked about BTS’s BE album track “Blue & Grey” – a song originally intended for his mixtape. The said track was written during the first wave of COVID-19, when the K-Pop group was forced to reschedule their Map of the Soul Tour until further notice.

That was when the Covid pandemic was just really expanding and becoming serious. We had prepared really hard to show ARMY our “ON” performances. And what I was finding difficult at the time was not being able to show what we practiced and prepared so hard.

The singer shared that it was frustrating and burned him out at the same on the mere fact that BTS was not being able to perform live for the ARMYs.

 

I was telling all ARMY on social media, “Get ready, we’re about to show you these great performances!” So that was really frustrating and difficult and it made me sad. I think there was a measure of being tired and really sort of burned out a little bit from the work as well.

Despite the challenges brought by the pandemic, being on hiatus has given BTS V some time to dig deeper into his interests and hobbies, according to the artist.

It allowed me to really focus on something. Pre-Covid, I was so busy that I couldn’t really concentrate on one thing or really focus on something new. If I wanted to do a new thing, I was really forced to sort of be a dilettante. I couldn’t dive deep. But during the last year I had more time.

According to the singer he has been honing his skills as a producer and composer. With a not-so-hectic schedule, allowed the artist to create more complex compositions when and how he wants it.

In my work, I really tried to do more producing and then go more in-depth on my music. My melodies before were not that complex, or intricate, I thought. But I was able to focus more energy into it, to listen to more music, and really sort of think about more things. And that, I think, helped me to really dive into the producing aspect of making music.

 

And I had a lot of time to come up with good melodies, and also had a lot of time to just sort of sit and vegetate. [Laughs] And that also helped me.
