Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook thanked everyone who has made the award possible while reveling in the surreal moment and allowing themselves to be vulnerable.

“We were really tired mentally. As we talked, we even wondered if we should disband or not.

Despite the struggles, they've managed to pick things back up and close out 2018 with a bang.
