2019 BTS FESTA Day 10: BANGTAN Attic + Day 9: BTS Profile 2019 Version

This video is one of my favourites from any festa. It's so funny and moving. I just love hearing their insights about their lives and their thoughts and how they feel about the incredible journey that they're on.

I'm glad they have a counsellor and that they do seem quite relaxed despite all the external pressure. lol the most bangtan moment had to be when they picked jungkook to do the final toast, bulding it up to be this amazing speech but then just plowed right past it when he couldn't find the words

I love this Festa video, a lot of things that i like to hear.. especially when Suga mentioned that apparently they have a mental health care specialist for them, I think it's the most important thing in this industry.

Also lol @ jungkook who keeps eating the whole time, good boy. Sometimes i kinda envy how he lives, he didn't focus on the negative but he keeps going with life. And I feel like at some parts he's more mature than me, i myself still have a lot of egoistic side of me that I can't let go. I wonder how people can just let go things :/

And Jimin who just cut off friends who talked bad about bangtan and stantwt all mentioned about solo stans I'm like 😂 why is it suddenly about solo stans!!

I always knew Jin isn't normally that crazy irl, but he does have a lot of jokes. But sometimes i see him as a sad person, and idk why....

Jungkook is very mature for his age. I like how he isn't angsting too much about the negative things in life. Also Jungkook/food is truly the real OTP.
I always love when he praises Joon (and Joon got so flustered)

Yoongi is hilarious, he talks like he's 60. Seriously, how often did he say "kids these days". You're in your 20s my dude!
he's really witty, I'm always impressed by that.

Jin keeps a lot to himself (I think we knew that) and that's fine. He always seems really grounded to me. And Joon is super conscious of his thoughts and actions, I don't know anybody who is so reflective (for lack of a better word?)

I always lol when they bring up Jimin's temper cause I can totally see it, even though he's so good at projecting only the fuffy part of himself on cam. He's always really sweet in these, asking for the I love you's and stuff. And cute 95z interactions, it's been a while.

Hobi is always the hardest for me to figure out and he's very private even in these. He must be a real sweetheart though cause they all seem to adore him (the younger ones especially).

Interesting that Jin said Tae's original personality was great for shows but hard to live with (cause he was so free-spirited and unruly) cause IMO it's the opposite now, he's probably far more mellow to be around but he barely says a word on camera. Also lol he doesn't have a religion, but he asks God for help at rock paper scissors? And his "hey you don't know, there could be angels! or maybe I watched too much anime" so random and so in character.

I wonder if anyone notices when Suga mentioned how Tae's honesty is too honest? XD I think they way he easily sulks when there's something bad happened is what annoys the others, especially right after Suga said that he tried to not let out emotions too much.
I would say Tae is similar to me in some ways, if it was me in a group setting with bunch of people especially there are a few that has strong personality, I will not talk much. I /knew/ I will be talked over and my opinions wouldnt matter much lol. But I can be very talkative if I'm with a different group that is not as close as my main group, because everyone will have a little bit of self-control and I like it when I see majority of the members are not strong people. Because I will be the strong ones. That's just what I see when Tae interacted with other celebrities, he seems like a social butterfly and good at talking but tbh a loser in his own group. I really feel that.

I kinda know why all the hyungs dotted on Jungkook a lot, that he's their favorite. It's because Jungkook basically willing to do whatever they told him to, lol while with Jimin or Taehyung, I think both of them rejected their hyungs a lot.

Jungkook's admiration and love for Namjoon is so beautiful and the fact that BigHit provided them with a therapist is amazing.

I haven't been a fan for long, I started listening to them in September 2017 but seeing how much they achieved and still can achieve is mind blowing and unbelievable.

I only wish them the best.

i kinda preferred last year's drunken festa, but this was interesting too

I never paid any attention to V, but now I totally see why everyone kept saying he's been ignored, and just cut out. Jin kept talking while having his back turned to him, even when he was talking about him. And what he said (which I'm sure echoed what everyone thought) was kinda, diplomatic? And then RM pointed out that it's because of how 'different' he is that they got even more fans, so maybe what at first they used to underestimate is now something they appreciate? idk. I always thought V was very 'simple', but he gave such warm answers today.

lol@RM shaking while JK was describing him. I hate shipping with all my heart, but the way JK looks up to RM is just so endearing. 'In my eyes he was handsome' awww, because he knew that others kept saying bad things about his looks (hence why he had to wear sunglasses during debut). But then after debut he realized he's human too, and probably got pissed off by all the monitoring.

JK saying that he shines bright as BTS JK, but is very slow otherwise (but that Sports, Arts and Music teachers always wanted him lol). And Suga trying to make him feel better by saying studying does not just mean studying books these days, and RM telling him he can always start studying later, but JK saying "I don't want to" lol. So he wants RM's brain, but, as he pointed out in the Vlive, just to switch brains with him, not actually have to work for it lol

ETA: JK does keep eating all the time. Makes you wonder what else he has a strong appetite for hmmm

Jin saying that there was an imposed persona of him being quiet when they debuted? That was interesting

I wasn't around for BTS' rookie years, but yeah, they tried to do a whole brooding bad boy thing with Jin. We see how that turned out lol. You can see it in their old MVs

I think I liked this even more than last year's dinner party, the atmosphere felt warmer and even more self-reflective.

I especially liked the parts where they talk about their past selves and their current selves. If you compare past videos to current ones, the change in their personalities and interactions is very apparent. They are a lot gentler and more sensitive now with one another than previously, which comes with more years of communication and understanding.

I think part of what makes BTS popular is that they always feel like regular people. I don't mean that just in a they like ramen and get excited about Marvel movies way. They are able to genuinely convey through the computer screen and with the language barrier, that at the end of the day, they are people who are struggling with finding, understanding, and loving themselves and learning more about each other and the world they live in just like everyone else.

Yay for english subs! i like how all of them are so focused on being happy and seem so content at where they are now. and how much more comfortable they are now compared to when they debut.
awww, poor jungkook constantly thinking he's slow and not smart... someone show him Howard Gardener's different types of intelligence. Admittedly he's not book smart like NJ or YG but he's good at what he does.
what i realise i like so much about watching them is that they seem like they're so supportive of each other all the time and not allow each other to feel down, whatever it may be. they're like their own biggest fans and loudest supporters.
and jimin cutting out people who badmouth them. and how they're so proud of what they do and so protective of themselves as a unit.
i think their success is partly because of their teamwork. and someone else says that they work so well together because no one really sticks out too much and they work well as a unit.

I enjoyed this but. And there’s a but.
Damn I feel bad for Taehyung.
I feel like they seem to lowkey make fun of him some times. He’s being serious and he still gets cut off during some parts. Even Jimin. Though Jimin will then try to comfort him too which is lovely but telling of their group dynamics.
There’s a very clear equation at play here. Jungkook was clearly loved from the start by all for various reasons. Even when he was a brat. Jin and Suga especially dote on him. And he is clearly their fave among the younger ones. RM and Jimin seem to be the only ones who are patient and overtly kind to Taehyung. J-Hope seems lovely to everyone but maintains decorum. Some of BTS feel like siblings while others seem like friends.

In any case their interactions are fascinating to watch.

I feel bad for V too, he seems really dejected in group interactions sometimes. In older videos when he was more hyper and outgoing, it seems like they doted on him more then and are more responsive to his odd quirks as you would with a younger sibling. It's almost as if they haven't quite figured out how to deal with the more sombre/earnest shift in his personality because he's a lot more serious with his words now, but they're still treating him as if he's joking around.

I really enjoyed every second of this video. There were so many funny and heartwarming moments. I didnt know tae wasnt a fan of religions lol. And asking god to pick for him in rock-paper-scissors hahhaha. By the way that army who talked with tae and answered him that all members are precious to her, you are the real mvp!
Jimin cutting off people because they talked bad about bts lolol.
And jin confirmed again that debut era he was given a certain character that he had to play. But then in 2016 he said fuck that lol.
Jk being a cutie and eating nonstop. His admiration to namjoon is so sweet.
I wasnt here all the time but sometimes in bangtan posts (especially run episodes ones) people really noticing some small but irrelevant things and doubting their relationship. We really dont know anything about them. But one thing is clear that people dont like each other wouldnt sign another 7 year contract. And i wanna add that if you see me interacting with my sister or some of my best friends you would think we cant stand eachother or something lol. But of course thats definitly not the case
lil_poisonfrog 14th-Jun-2019 12:33 am (UTC)

Lol this is just as much wild speculation as the shit other ppl are saying in this post. You just don't want to acknowledge the possibility that some of them may not be anything more than coworkers behind the scenes. And ppl often don't like their coworkers but they put their differences aside to get shit done.

I've talked about this in a past BTS post, but if 1 member didn't want to re-sign and 6 did, that 1 would be fucked. They'd be subject to a ton of backlash from a huge fandom, and given that none of the members have established solo careers yet, it could hurt that person's reputation and make it harder for them to strike out on their own. That's an immense amount of pressure to put on someone that may want to go solo or leave entertainment entirely. Not saying that's def what happened but to act like "they re-signed, so everything's hunky dory" is seriously naive

my favourite part was when Jimin tricked J-Hope into thinking he would say something bad about him, but then praised him A LOT. cuties~~~

The festa was so good this year ^_^, I wish I could block some people comments on omona though, so I would never see them, just as Jimin cut off people saying bad things about Bangtan.

Wow at the ott over analyzing.

I feel like out of all male idols bts DOES seem definitely more genuine in showing who they are off camera, but at the same time they still have lots of sides to themselves I'm more than certain they don't show, but most fans take that as who they genuinely are and give these think pieces about how they blink and scratch their ass.

Anyways, I loved it. I like when we get videos of them simply speaking to each other and how they process everything happening to them without any hidden reasons. I'm glad they have a mental health expert they can speak to and I'm happy they feel they can comfortably mention it on camera.

What's definitely obvious is that they all absolutely adore JK, which is how I want it. He is truly a doll who deserves the world. I have an immense soft spot for him. The last male idol had had such a soft spot for was Taemin. I still do.
lil_poisonfrog 14th-Jun-2019 12:37 am (UTC)
I haven't watched the whole thing yet but all I'll say is this--a man with a temper is never cute to me, not ever. I wouldn't be friends with or date a guy like that. It's never not a huge red flag.
yxerin 14th-Jun-2019 10:44 pm (UTC)
me @jin and hobi when they never truly open up in these heart-to-heart talks



like when even namjoon is like "idk what's in his heart" to jin like what. who is this man

also daaaamn the taehyung takes in the comments here 👀👀 although i think most of it is kinda overblown i agree w some of it. idk if it's just me projecting bc i can can see a lot of myself in tae, but jin's comment about taehyung's personality being too much in the beginning hurt a bit. i believe tae's change in character has been mostly natural and/or driven by things outside of bts but i hate to think that some of it could've been bc he felt like he had to restrict his natural personality in order to conform. as someone w adhd i feel like that's what many think in regards to ppl with the disorder, not saying i think he has adhd but the disapproval of his character could stem from similar attitudes

yeah I've thought this too. Like I'm sure early Tae was harder to deal with but out of all the boys I really feel like Taehyung is the only one who seemed MORE confident and at ease with himself during the early days than he does now. He was outgoing, kinda carefree, like he just expected that ppl were gonna like him and what he said/did. It's why he made friends left and right. He messed up a lot cause he didn't consider his actions much, so maybe it IS a good change to be more aware of other people & their reactions but idk if you look at his development compared to the others, I'd be hard-pressed to say that he seems more comfortable and relaxed now than he used to.

but yeah, it's all speculation ofc. There's probably so much going on behind the scenes we never even get a glimpse of.
