BTS is on a monumental world tour, and their latest stop will be stateside, in the City of Angels.
Despite being in high demand, though, it seems theyre going to avoid the media circuit.
TV hosts have been begging the band to appear on their shows – James Corden desperately wants the boys to perform Serendipity in Carpool Karaoke, much to the ARMYs delight.
Tyra Banks and Howie Mandel are hoping RM, Jimin, J-Hope, Suga, Jungkook, V and Jin will perform on Americas Got Talent.
But the K-pop superstars have decided not to have any interviews whilst theyre in Los Angeles in an effort to focus on their world tour.
George Pennacchio, a reporter for ABC7 shared the miserable news.
Okay, #BTSARMY, I hate to break this news but I learned today that @BTS_twt has now decided to turn down ALL interview requests while they're L.A. I'm told the guys want to focus on their shows "and are doing absolutely nothing else." I'll still cover the concert for you. #BTS pic.twitter.com/2L9Rvu4mkD

Though the news is probably a blow to the ARMY, they put a brave face on, with many saying theyll be happy if BTS take a well deserved rest.
Author and stan Rafranz Davis is actually relieved. This is so good for them. I think that their Grammy museum conversation being live streamed will speak much more than most interviews.
After meditating for a while I realized that Im okay with BTS not doing promo in the US because I'm seeing how taxing the music shows & Soribada has been and it breaks my heart. It would have been hypocritical of me to not be okay with the Kpromos while wanting interviews in LA.

Glad bts cancelled their interviews in la because if they kept them theres no way they would enjoy/ perform to their best ability

Another fellow fan thanked Pennacchio for inviting them to an interview: Thank you so much for inviting them and such opportunity [sic] and for understanding them.
I hope you are not offended because they turned down the interview request. I wanted them to come but as an Army i respect every decision they made. Moreover they need REST.
A third grateful fan gushed a thank you for supporting our boys.
Were so sorry if you dont get a chance to interview them but we are sincerely concerned about their health as they added more shows!
BTS took walked away with the grand prize at the 2018 Soribada Best K-Music Awards.
The DNA hitmakers won three awards, also taking home the Bonsang (main price) and World Social Artist Award.
