In the video, BTS' RM and Jimin were completely raw and open with each other as they discussed RM's new music and the emotions he experienced while creating it. RM described feeling like he only had an "on and off switch" for his feelings.

Jimin shared that he looks forward to seeing this growth within the group. However, Jimin also mentioned that when BTS returns as a team in 2025, RM will once again face the pressures of being the frontman of a superstar boy group and asked if he would be okay.

RM expressed his gratitude to his fellow members and mentioned that while he doesn't know what the future holds for BTS, they will definitely be doing concerts. Jimin added that when they reunite, he and RM should release a song together. RM agreed, saying, "Let's release unit albums... We can keep mixing up different units within BTS. Jungkook, V; Jimin, RM; SUGA, Jin, J-Hope - I want to do it with all the members."

Returning to the topic of his feelings and responsibilities as an idol and artist, Jimin added, let's feel and then come back to work.

RM also became emotional, sharing that he didn't think much about the team for a year when they began enlisting. He admitted that he felt like he had turned off the switch and experienced guilt. Now, he feels like he owes the members and expresses his desire to work hard for them again.
