RM also admitted he would hand the title of “leader” over to J-Hope out of all the members.
V: Hyung has a hard time (being a leader). If you had to hand over the position of a leader, which member would it be?

저는 말을 해주고 싶지 않아요 말을 해주면 과거의 제이홉이 달라질 것 같아요.
그냥 "너 하고 싶은 대로 해" 하고 싶어요.
뭐 미래를 이야기해주기도 싫고 그러면 나태해질까봐 "그대로 해, 네 마음대로 해" pic.twitter.com/gQPyB4SdRD
