GUYS I HAVE A THEORY ABOUT THE BACKUP DANCERS AND WHY THEY KEEP RE-APPEARING!
Okay so - I think the dancers are supposed to represent us, the Army. In Fire, it’s the introduction to BTS. You catch the fire. And we keep seeing them multiply first in the video and then in the live shows just like the Army keeps growing and growing.
But in Not Today? See i don’t think the black figures are after them. I think they’re just following them and you can clearly see that after the boys get shot, they move to the frontline to protect them from whoever is shooting.
After the “shooting” starts at @3:50, in the choreo part @3:55 you can see the Army running in front to block the boys from getting shot. But at @4:02 all the dancers have been shot and you can see the boys still standing. And what do they do? They all move to the front of the line. To save their Army. And they start firing back (chong! jojun! balsa!).
And the final shot at @4:42 they lock their hands and make a shield. ‘Cause nobody’s hurting their Army. Not today. Not ever.
(Final note - at @4:40 it’s BTS and Army “flying” in a same formation as birds do).
