BTS leader RM shared his thoughts on Indian fans raising funds for Covid-19 relief. It was previously reported that one of the Indian fanbases of the group raised about 20 lakhs in just 24 hours to help secure resources for those affected by the pandemic.

In a recent interview with a leading television channel, BTS was informed about the good deed. Reacting to the news, RM said, "Thank you for the beautiful ARMYs in India. We miss (you) and we hope that we could be there in front of you as fast as possible. Let us stay strong in these challenging times. Our prayers go to everyone currently fighting against Covid-19 and we hope to see you soon and safe." J-Hope chipped in to add, "ARMY do not lose hope," before RM continued, "we are together with India".

BTS hasn't visited India yet. Last year, the group had said that they would travel to India once the pandemic is over. RM has assured fans once again that the group would visit India as soon as possible.

"We truly hope that the situation gets better as soon as possible. If the opportunity comes, I hope we can see each other like safely. We send our best wishes for India's help. Many including Unicef are partnered for the Love Myself campaign, are sending their support as well. So we are aware that India is suffering badly from the pandemic. So after (it ends) we truly hope that we can be there and climb that things are over, we are here together right now," he said.

The K-pop group recently released their new track titled Butter. The song has been topping numerous music charts, including the Billboard Hot 100.
