As BTS is taking some downtime while also rehearsing for their upcoming Map of the Soul Tour, the septet sat down for an interview with Mnet to reminisce about the memorable moments in their seven-year career, so far! Starting things off, the popular K-pop band spoke fondly about their debut performance at M Countdown. While Suga shared how the band was overwhelmed and that it was a moment that they would never forget, Jimin added, "I still remember the day when we had just debuted, and obviously not a lot of people knew us then, and we were live on stage and we hear the audience go 'woah' real-time. It made us feel really happy. We can all remember it so clearly up to this day."

Speaking about the I Need You era, Jimin shared that it was memorable when they ranked first place for the song at M Countdown. Jin recalled that the band was crying and hugging each other while ChimChim added that he couldn't stop sobbing post the win.

At the 2017 MAMA, where BTS won three awards out of five nominations, including the coveted Daesang for Qoo10 Artist of the Year, Jimin recalled, "Personally, our MIC Drop performance at the 2017 MAMA really stuck with me. It was the second consecutive time we were awarded Artist of the Year. We worked really hard, but it was also a difficult time for us, but it was as though the award was our compensation so it was a really rewarding moment."

"I was also thankful for ARMY," Jungkook shared and concluded, "The past 7 years have been a pleasure and let's keep going."
