Soobin’s message to RM: 

On the day of the MV release, BTS’ RM put up two photos on Instagram story that showed the latest TXT album and Soobin’s adorable message in it. The message said, “please let us know what you think after listening to our new album, which went through a lot of roadblocks. I'm sure you are receiving many messages and calls as always, so I've chosen not to contact you in-person... Oh, my favorite songs [from your album] are 'No.2' and 'Wild Flower'. After we had a chance to talk... I have been working my very hardest with my teeth clenched. I want to succeed even more, and visit hyung's house one more time... If that opportunity comes, let's talk longer, hyung. I don't know if I can ever become an artist like you, hyung, but I want to at least try my best to become a person like you. Please watch over our team! Thank you.”
