Allkpop reported the boys' thoughts about not being under the top companies.

Member Suga said, "A lot of people did not expect much from us when we first debuted. I am grateful that the 'School Trilogy' and the 'Young Forever' series that captures our stories received great love from many. We cannot be young forever but I always want to have that purity and passion. I also want to continue promoting with the mind of a young boy even though I cannot be a young boy forever."

J-Hope added, "We might not be under a big, major label, but the name is literally big hit. So it is a big label, and we will make hits. Please look forward to it."

Rap Monster also revealed his thoughts saying, "We put in a lot of effort to live up to our name's worth. Please also look forward to our performances."

Congratulations, BTS!
