The sad thing is that I feel like they need to stay away from each other because, every time they are next to each other the distance between them seems to become non existent, makes people think twice about their relationship. Jimin, also can’t hide how much he really loves Jungkook, so I think that why Jungkook decided to keep the distances in front of the cameras, because he knows people will notice if the reality of their love when he responds to Jimin advances by blushing or touching him back. Jungkook, wants to protect Jimin, like Jimin has always protected him. I guess this is the main reason they have been doing alot of shady things now, they just can’t be separated to long . The fact that Jungkook is stealing glaces from Jimin, and then trying to contain his jealousy, not to mention the need to touch Jimin, i think it will get to him. I suspect the song “lie” from Jimin might have to do something with this, the issues that he has to face due to their “lie” hiding their love , when he is so cleary in love with Jungkook. however, I think Jungkook suggested to lie (keep appearances) about how they really love each other to protect him. And if this is true he is really getting tormented by keeping up all this for people not to ruin their careers. He also feels maybe insecure that even when jungkook says he loves him he wants to hide their love. Literally, the lyrics say “I feel so far away, yet you always come my way” lol look at all those videos where they are far away yet they stare at each other from a distance. It’s like they are away yet they really are not. He also said he wants to be saved yet he is not innocent from this lie. If that doesn’t scream jikook idk what does. I think that how he lets the guilt of the lie go by indirectly admitting to it in the song. I think he says that even living in this lie (hiding his love for jungkook) it doesn’t change the person he is, however if he doesn’t let it go it will swallow him up. Maybe because he loves his fans alot, and lying about a part of him was killing him.
Additional info : I find it oddly weird that Jungkook has a playlist with majority jikook inspire music and then their is this sad one called “beautiful lies”.
I believe that Jungkook thinks this is a beautiful lie despite how messed up it might be because he atleast gets to be with Jimin.
Omg I just listen to the lyrics and you could interpret this way.
“In the heat of the moment, were free” so with each other’s company he believes they are really free from the lie of what they are trying to live by. :’(
even in the short it shows a camera for Jimin pretending to be happy
