In an interview with Consequence, Jimin spoke about BTS and the song. He said, “You know, the members felt very nervous before releasing their solo albums, but compared to those feelings, their results were absolutely great. I don’t want to be an embarrassment to my members. I want to be a proud member of BTS. This album talks about how I look back on myself and how I overcame… If people understand the emotions I’m trying to express, I’ll consider the album a success.”
Jimin also added, “First, we tried to focus on the performance and express the really intense vibe of the song. The key point was freedom — and actually, we were drinking at the time. This is the last track on the album; the last of the emotions. It’s very intense, so I wanted to announce a Jimin solo in an impactful way.” He also compared his track with BTS’ song ON saying that a person ‘can feel the same vibe watching’ both tracks.
