He also announced plans to release a new song in 2022 during the Livestream, though it’s unclear whether he was referring to solo material or music with BTS.

He continued that hating is their freedom, and they have the right to hate, but if it was him then he would rather just talk with his friends in some cafe and forget about it rather than tweeting about it or some interview. The leader that it’s not something that grown-ups do! He went on to say that they didn’t come to Vegas for the Grammys. They came to Vegas for the ARMYs.
