BTS Suga Said 2016 Was A Difficult Time He Doesn’t Want To Remember – Kpopnews
BTS Suga, who recently made a comeback as “Agust D,” recalled difficult past experiences.
On April 24th, episode 9 of “Suchwita” was uploaded to BTS’ official YouTube channel, “BANGTAN TV”. This time, Suchwita was hosted by BTS RM, who interviewed Suga about her new album, D-DAY, which was released under Suga’s nickname Agust D.
Here RM asked Suga to explain the meaning of Agust D and the title of his album “D-DAY”. To this Suga said: “I think I should tell you how I first came up with the name of Agust D.” add to, ‘D, T (Daegu Town), so if you read D Town SUGA backwards, it becomes Agust D. my middle name’ in the lyrics. It was like a short teaser.
“Then I released my first mixtape called Agust D. That was in 2016.” he continued, adding, “2015 and 2016 were really tough years for us that I don’t even want to remember. Even though things were going great for us, I had all these complicated feelings. I thought, ‘I’m going to show you how raw my music can be.
According to Suga, his songs were very aggressive back then, and as “Agust D” he talked about a lot of things that were difficult to talk about as an idol. However, it wasn’t as if he was severing a part of himself, it was as if he were expressing himself with fewer limitations.
Suga then revealed that “D-DAY” is the final installment in the “Agust D” trilogy and that D-Day is an ending but also the beginning of a new beginning. When asked if he wouldn’t use the name Agust D afterwards, Suga replied: “I have many ideas about this» before saying that he will probably release a solo album under the name ‘Suga’.
“I have to separate the two,” Suga also admitted, adding that the posts and stories may be too heavy for Suga to post.
Next, RM asked if Suga thought Agust D and SUGA were different characters. To which Suga replied: “Yes, I split it up a bit. There is the producer SUGA, just SUGA
and Agust D, those three, ‘Produced by SUGA’ is something I use when working on external projects. Like ‘Prod. SUGA’, I always just focus on the artist and the audience.
The male idol and producer also said: “And as SUGA, since I’ve been with BTS, my focus has been on BTS music.” add to, “As Agust D, I meant everything I wanted to say. It was my original idea of not having to filter things.
Eventually Suga confessed “But as Agust D I talked a lot about myself. So now I have nothing more to say and it has thrown me into a huge meltdown. It was so bad that I even thought, “I used everything I had to make my music”. What should I do now?”.
He also likened that experience to being as difficult as it was when BTS released The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, adding: “That’s why I was very hesitant to release it as SUGA or Agust D.”
