“Considering To Make A Small Space From My Own Private Collection”: BTS’ RM Shares Plans To Host Art Exhibit Soompi
Since the members of BTS announced that they will be focusing on solo activities, every day has been a treat for fans, who see their beloved idols working for their own passion. This time, the leader of the group, rapper, songwriter and producer, Kim Nam-joon, attended Art Basel podcast and talked about his love for the visual arts.
The host asked BTS’s RM if there would ever be a “private Nam-joon Kim museum.” The idol laughed and shared that the museum might be a little too much work, but “a small space” for her private collection is something that’s been on her mind for a while:
“So the museum itself is really complicated, isn’t it? They need curators and exhibits. This is the first time I’ve said this, but, seriously, I’m planning on doing a little space from my own private collection. And maybe a café on the first floor, and set up my collection on the second and third floors. So people could still see the collections when they just wanted to see them. »
He then added that South Korea does not offer much in terms of museums, especially when it comes to Korean artists.
“When people come to Korea – it also happens to Koreans – we can’t see the great Korean artists because there are not many museums at the moment, there are not many galleries at the moment ( in Korea) So I want to do mine one day.
BTS’ RM previously expanded on the same idea, talking about how being a global star has helped him visit museums around the world and gain knowledge and inspiration.
Meanwhile, he shared that even though South Korea is a small country and doesn’t have many museums or galleries, he made it a point to visit them. He revealed that this passion ignited when he realized he couldn’t name any Korean painters. However, now he is inspired by several Korean artists.
With a well-deserved break from the never-ending series of group promotions, it will be interesting to see how BTS’s RM achieves its goal of making Korean artists more accessible to the public.
