What does Suga think about BTS and politics?
But what are BTS’s views on politics, do they consider themselves political? This question was posed to the band during their interview with Variety. Starting off, we had Suga say that BTS doesn’t consider themselves political and that they aren’t trying to send a great message.
They see BTS ARMY as a conduit for their voice or opinion. Min Yoongi reiterates that ARMY talks about their own initiatives and that they always respect the opinions of the fandom as they respect anyone else’s.
