One more person tries to tell me the reason Hoseok got ZERO lines in Spring day is because he had a the intro and the most lines in BST and imma pop off.
First of all, BTS always rotates which member gets to do the intro. This is not Hoseok sweeping forward and idk, stealing the intro as a second song, this is his RIGHT, FINALLY, to do the intro. It’s not his fault they also chose the album he FINALLY got to do the intro on as the album where the entire group also gets a solo song. The fact that he has 2 songs is literally irrelevant in this case, at least, it should be, because those solos shouldn’t conflict with the fact that it’s his turn for the intro.
True, this does equal a fact that he got 2 solo songs on the solo album, but it’s not really the same? I think it’s kind of like saying that Namjoon or Yoongi’s intro counted as a 2nd song when the other albums had the cypher series? Idk, it just? it’s not really even a factor. Besides, Hoseok earned that intro spot. Namjoon has his side projects and his mixtape, Yoongi just released his bomb ass mixtape that’s been well received, Jeongguk has MCing and he relreases solo tracks, Taehyung now has his acting and he and Jin collaborated on the OST track, Jimin has several dance features this past year. Hoseok’s intro was a ncessity at this point, no one should be counting that like it’s a negative and he shouldn’t be ‘paying’ for it by losing album time.
Second of all, saying that Hoseok is getting cut out of Spring Day because of his Blood Sweat and Tears lines is literally ludicrous? Hoseok routinely gets less time on the tracks as a rapper compared to Yoongi and Namjoon, as a Hoseok bias I have no issue with this in general because Yoongi and Namjoon are more experienced, and they mix the track based on a lot of things, from flow to style to how many lines they were able to write, and even all the way down to balancing the entire album. So don’t yell at me about being a Hoseok bias who’s clearing just talking shit. It’s not about that. But Hoseok generally has less time on tracks, so the fact that he had a lot of lines on Blood Sweat and Tears isn’t really a big deal in terms of him getting too much. That’s like saying; oh, Jeongguk had a lot of lines in every single song that’s why we literally excluded him from this song? The fact that he has a lot of lines should be irrelevant. Besides, even the lines he did have in Blood Sweat and Tears were shared with Jeongguk during live stages, and let’s not even TOUCH on what they did to Jin then, and now, in Spring Day, because Jin deserves his own 109 page rant.
This is about Hoseok for now. I’ll do a Jin related rant probably.
ANYWAYS, I think my biggest problem is that there isn’t even 1 line? It makes the balance of the song feel off, wrong even. Even in Fire, Hoseok showed up for around 5 lines total, that was a very short verse but it felt balanced, and the fact that he had a shared verse with Namjoon helped too. Even Jin had lines in Fire. Fire may not be my favorite BTS song but at least the balance didn’t feel as off as if has in the past.
I think I wish they could have pulled a fire, and at least let Hoseok have at least one line. I’m assuming that it’ll be handled like they did with Jin in BST, where the live stages might have at least 1 line or so for Hoseok just so that he’s not standing around doing nothing. Or maybe the dance will be Hoseok centric (which, i lowkey doubt it because they love to play 2seok but whatever now i’m getting salty).
In short, people like to try to justify the reasons for 2 members in particular always getting shafted like there’s a reason. I’m sure there is a reason. Balance of the entire album is one, maybe Jin’s filming got in the way, idk what got in the way of Hoseok having a single line, maybe he got lost in the bathroom idk, but, I’m AWARE that there are reasons okay. And I’m not blaming the Boys, and I don’t even blame the production staff, I understand balancing reasons, I understand lots of things, I even know for 100% fact that BTS tries realy hard to be accepting of each other, not to get jealous or mad about line distribution, and is one of the most solid groups under the ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ philosophy.
Still doesn’t make me, a Hoseok bias, feel any better about my man not having any lines okay. So Please let me cry without telling me that I’m being stupid or that he DID have lines, remember he had lines for BST and he had an intro. TT.
TLDR: please let hyung line biased fans, partially Hoseok (and Jin) biased fans, mourn in peace without telling them that you’re tired or that they’re unjustified ! ! ! As long as they’re not complaining directly to the boys, or about another boy getting too much, etc, then it’s not problematic it’s called venting. Venting is fine. The real issue is when people start blaming other members for their own fav members not getting enough time. But yeh, anyways, this was long. RIP.
