Appreciate all the artists and give congratulations to those that have been able to represent kpop in a big way. It’s not only helping them, but also all the other groups as more people find out about them and support them 😊😊
RECENT EPIK HIGH’S (TABLO) SONG IS AN ADVICE TO BTS?
TABLO is very close to BTS especially Suga who all look up to him as a big senior. Epik High’s music inspired Bangtan to become musicians.
In a recent interview, TABLO (EPIK HIGH) stated that his main inspiration for writing and composing “Lost One” were artists such as BTS, who respect and are inspired by Epik High:
“There have been a few people who’ve said that they started dreaming of making music because of our music. In particular, I once watched a video someone sent me where members of BTS said that they started dreaming of making music after hearing Epik High’s song “Fly”. I’ve seen a few others say that over the years as well. That was what was in my head”.
Tablo also mentioned that advice from seniors in an industry is usually positive, and contains messages like “You can do it,” or “You can do well.” To this, he said: “I think it’s a shame that I couldn’t only talk about good things if I were to say something to those who start to dream after seeing me because there are so many painful things as well on the path that I’ve walked. At the same time, I think that these words could also seem like a comfort. If our children ever want to follow the path we’ve taken, I’d start by playing this song for them”.
Some lyrics of the song:
My child, when you follow Look carefully at the path I tread One day, I’ll no longer be able to walk beside you Leaving my footsteps here. See these? Avoid them Follow those who chose the easy path, since that’s the answer Since the path I chose is crooked like a question mark, and only gives to rise to countless problems You look up to me, but I hope your dream doesn’t turn out to be a nightmare once you wake up Now that I’ve run to the very end - the eternity, healing and answers I was looking for? Not a thing
My family was the reason I ran, but this path took them away, too Perhaps the starting pistol was aimed at my back Listen up. Even though the whole world welcomes you, that very world will abandon you - gotta let go Before it’s too late. Cuz I’ve been there before They may be spectacular to the eyes, but don’t be fooled by the diamonds and gold Don’t get drunk on applause Sometimes, they’ll tie you up with compliments Even when they spread a red carpet for you, don’t forget That it’s been dyed red with your blood and sweat
Hope you can reach your dream Hope your dream only shows you the things you can hold on to Because success is about taking as much as you give Hope your dream doesn’t give you something too precious
Hope your dream doesn’t attract attention Protect it like a secret, and always hold your breath Because the world is a place that takes as much as it gives Hope your dream doesn’t only show you dreamlike things

170520 Tablo posted this Snap. A screenshot of his convo with Yoongi
Trans: I’m very proud of you ^^
You know how important this is? In an interview in 2013, Min Yoongi revealed that he decided to become a rapper after listening to Epik High’s Fly. Last year, Tablo did post a vid tweet of him jamming to Dead Leaves in his car.
But to hear “I’m very proud of you” from someone you have always looked up to and inspired you to tread towards your dream? Wow!
