Leader RAP MONSTER (23) was immersed in deep emotions as the filled up space right before his eyes was being burned into his memory on the 15th, the second day of concert. The meaning behind the group's name BTS (Boudan Shounendan) is 'to stop the oppression & prejudice directed at teens & 20s, protecting our own music.'

In September of last year, the album 'YOUTH' ranked the historical 1st for a foreign hip-hop group. It's been 3 years and 4 months since their Japan debut. Their fans called 'ARMY' led them in their first dome concert. They performed the in sync choreography of 22 songs including 'DNA' from their latest album which also broke 20M views in the video-sharing website 'Youtube' and their latest single 'Chi, Ase, Namida'. "Our dream came true now, we are in this reality together with everybody. Thank you for today and yesterday too. Kyocera dome, we'll definitely come again. Dome and Osaka, I love you!!", J-HOPE (23) on the big stage promised for another meeting while mixing words in Kansai dialect. ◆ New song to be released on 12/06 In their concert on the 15th, they announced on stage that they will release their 8th single in December 06 in Japan. It is their first triple A single which includes the Japanese version of 'DNA' and a Japanese original winter song etc. <BTS> As trainees in their company they polished their techniques before debut and in the end with RAP MONSTER, V, JIMIN, JIN, JUNGKOOK, J-HOPE, SUGA, the seven-member group was formed.

  9. The first time I took photos and covered BTS was exactly two years ago. That day, the moment the seven-members appeared in the studio, I clearly remembered I thought “they’re ‘cute’ as they were walking” (laughs). That image of course, but more than that they are people who bring about charming atmosphere and they are a (group) who works very hard. They have become big stars now with fans all over the world, so this time too such charm was strong. “2, 3…we’re BTS!…please look after us!”, with their energetic greeting we started the photoshoot and coverage. With consecutive events and photoshoot, you wouldn’t sense their tiredness, they were cheerfully smiling the whole time and as what we have anticipated the 7 members perfectly responded to the photoshoot and interview. Thinking “It’d be a blessing if we had such sons”, admiring perfectly from a standpoint of aunts and uncles, we are the anan team. All members gathered at the same place, it gave me the impression that they will naturally start to dance. First of all, the scene where J-HOPE-san and JIMIN-san whose breathing are approximately the same (but in some way we can confirm thru the choreography) naturally started to dance and in no time the other members also joined, and ended up laughing in the end happened many times. Naturally and looking like they’re having fun dancing the choreography they’ve certainly practiced and performed hundreds of times in a place where there are no audience and of course no music is amazing right? Then, it was two days after the photoshoot when I was further impressed. It’s about my conversation with the assistant stylist, O-kun over the phone after the photoshoot. With the preparation of many clothes and busy filming, I’m sure he must be tired, so I told him “It was difficult, right? Thank you”, but unexpectedly with a cheerful voice he said, “Not at all! I really had fun. All the members are very nice, they spoke to me in Japanese…”, it was somehow an unusual impression. “For example, J-HOPE-san asked me 'What kind of fashion is popular in Japan?’, so I replied 'These days (there’s a) brand that influences us’, he immediately searched it up and said 'It seems like it suits my style’, I was pleased!”, he vividly reported. “Everyone was really kind and friendly”, he said, whatever I heard were high praises from O-kun (laughs). It was a moment wherein even if it’s in a waiting room a male staff of the same generation (a little older) got his heart captured that once again BTS’ “strength as humans” was felt. For this reason, there’s no way the photos will not be beautiful! This and that too, I wanted to let everyone see! It’s the first time too for anan to have two versions. We are happy if we introduce the seven-members’ personalities and group’s brilliance to many people thru this magazine. (Y) Translation by prancingmaria Please take out with credits.

This rain will be blown away as we feel the heat/enthusiasm of fans. Yamamoto Hiroshi: Do you listen a lot to Boudan Shounendan? F1: Yes, I do…I do! I play their songs frequently. Their choreography…individuality F2: I bought a lot of their posters. Yamamoto Hiroshi: So how about your room? F2: It’s full of their posters. Yamamoto Hiroshi: Eh~~? F2: *shows phone* their orderly on top of my bed…omg, this is embarassing! F3: I love them. Bangtan! Yamamoto Hiroshi: Bangtan? F3: Their Korean official name is… F4: Bang-tan-Son-yeon-dan Yamamoto Hiroshi: And that in Japanese becomes “Boudan Shounendan”…and everyone, the fans call them “Bangtan”….Oh, I’ve learned this (just now) F3: *giggles* F4: I pass by a Korean language school…and there are many people who says "I like Bangtan"…Fans are called “ARMY” Yamamoto Hiroshi: ARMY F4: They have the image of a military group, so the group and the bulletproof vest must always be together…ARMY = group, so it has the meaning of them always being with their ARMY. Yamamoto Hiroshi: Is that so?! *info overload lol*…In the first place, why are you studying in a Korean language school? F4: Because I like Boudan Shounendan. >> What’s the reason why the world supports Bangtan? We talked about it with a KPOP journalist, Furuyama Masayuki san. Furuya Masayuki: There are different groups who are advancing globally, but the music that they do is really..they’ve adopted the western sound well. I think there are a few group with that sound showing uniform/synchronized dance. >BS&T mv for everyone’s eyes to see aka visuals and dancing here and there aka heart attack< Furuya Masayuki: The strength of Korea (KPOP), it’s good to put hip-hop as the base of the music. The starting point of that is Korean language pronunciation is close to English. With the cool performance and sound showing, (their) root is really like that of the youth. Furthermore, they debuted as “the spokespeople of youth in their 10’s.” And from there, the strength of being the voice of who they represent…they think simultaneously with their fans, so the (fans) are crazy about them/addicted to them. SG: Everyone, please look forward to it! BTS: This has been BTS! >panel time< Masuda Okada: Amazing! Yamamoto Hiroshi: Fans say their dances are cool, and when they are not dancing, they are cute. The gap is irresistible. We’ve talked about their individual points. Masuda Okada: As for their dancing, what can you say Gun-chan about their dance? Gun-chan: The choreography looks so difficult and they dance in sync. They’re cool! Masuda Okada: They are a cool bunch of guys!….How about their sound, Hyadain-san? Hyadain: …Their sound…definitely in the Billboard…. Masuda Okada: (I’m surprised) that Korean pronunciation is close to English. Hyadain: Fans like their Japanese version, but they also like the Korean version…and you know, I think they’re popular among the likes of Momoka chan’s group. Masuda Okada: Do you know them? Momoka-chan: Yes, I know them. My members watch them on TV…I notice them well. Masuda Okada: How about you Kojima-san? Haruna Kojima: I really often hear them from girls and editors…the (people from) the fashion industry also like them. Masuda Okada: Ah, they are on the front cover this time, right? Such pattern is the first time….really amazing! T/N: Furuya Masayuki is our famous KPOP journalist who knows Bangtan Hyadain is a composer, lyricist, and musician whose main work is composing anime theme songs Gun-chan is a member of EXILE and Sandaime J Soul Brothers Momoka-chan is a member of the group “Fairies” Haruna Kojima is a former member of AKB48 Translations by prancingmaria May repost / use translation w/credit
  12. Special edition [anan 2057th issue] Member to member confession in a relay style! “This charm of yours makes my heart beat fast” JIN ➡️ SUGA (in a low tone) I like your quiet, careful consideration. It becomes comfortable to be together in a room. You’re my lifetime roommate….Suga makes me a poet (laughs). SUGA ➡️ J-HOPE Always positively facing everything with his 130% crossing over his limits is his charm. My heart isn’t beating fast though. Afterall…it doesn’t flutter since we are both men! (laughs) J-HOPE ➡️ RAP MONSTER He has an extreme desire to improve his music and foreign language. It’s a good motivation and so this so called “anxious” makes my heart beat fast (laughs). As a leader, he is dependable in pulling everyone. My heart flutters. RAP MONSTER ➡️ JIMIN Just by incidentally looking at JIMIN , I think he is sexy even for a man like me. His form when he dances is flexible and among the group, his body is small with a baby face and yet he has muscles. You’ll be captivated. JIMIN ➡️ V Succeeding and failing when doing unexpected actions. He always thinks of making us happy, so with his crazy behaviour, he becomes an adorable obedient person. You can’t keep your eyes off him! V ➡️ JUNGKOOK The child-like facial expressions he shows unexpectedly, like a young (person) who goes around the members, I think looking at him being the youngest is cute. But even so, he is a strong man. I wonder if the gap is good? JUNGKOOK ➡️ JIN Handsome with wide shoulders is his charm. But…my heart isn’t beating fast. Really! Ah, sometimes when he says “oh?” on stage, my heart beats fast, so I send him a signal (laughs). Trans; cr. prancingmaria (tumblr | twitter)
