BTS may be soaring on the top of the K-pop game but BTS leader Rap Monster shared that he also has his worries about the future of the K-pop group. Rap Monster candidly shared his concerns with their fans in a short video log.

According to SBS Pop Asia, Rap Monster opened up about the grueling months that made up their successful "Wings" tour which took BTS to various parts of the world to sold out shows. He said that the US leg of their world tour was one of the most taxing moments in their career and as the leader of the group, he was given the responsibility of representing BTS in most of the live interviews.

Rap Monster confessed that he felt great stress in making sure that he communicates the message of their group in the interviews. This came at the time when so much hype was surrounding the group with their nomination to Billboard Music Awards 2017 for the Top Social Artist category, which they eventually won because of the strong fandom support from the BTS ARMY.

The BTS leader also shared the pressure he felt about matching the success of their album "Wings" which has propelled BTS as the artists with the second most number of weeks at Billboard Social 50 charts. With a consistent showing at the top of the list since October, BTS now only trails Justin Bieber's record of 161 weeks on the chart after they surpassed the records set by One Direction, Mikey Cyrus, Rihanna and Taylor Swift, Korea Portal reported.

In his video, Rap Monster said that they are now in a transition phase in between albums as they set out to make their comeback later this year. He said that as a producer and songwriter, he feels pressure in coming out with materials that will match and even surpass the success of their recent hits "Not Today" and "Spring Day."
