Hidden namjin element in the boy meets evil + WINGS concept?
Thanks to the new teaser pictures, I have gotten 4 hours of sleep last night writing a colored tears and yoonminkook theory. Now, I’m gonna share with you a namjin thing I noticed.
First things first, the above photograph is so pretty, right? And in Singlish (I’m Singaporean), we call those ice creams atas, which means high class. Prop or not, an ice cream that has flowers in it like that kailijumei lipstick is cool.
Then I (not so calmly) moved on to Jin’s picture, and I noticed one obvious thing: his ice cream is the same type as Namjoon’s.
That was when I questioned: Why give Jin the same ice cream when Taehyung should be the one twinning with Namjoon? Instead, Taehyung has a different ice cream.
We all know, and Bighit has put it across very clearly in INU, Run and Boy meets evil films that taejoon are linked in a way that hasn’t been explained why. It makes more sense for Tae to twin with Nams in this case, so why Jin?
With this, the scientific researcher for Kpop in me began on a hunt. It soon dawned on me that namjin is more prominent than it appears to be. Let’s start with Namjoon’s song in the Boy meets evil album, Reflection.
A part goes like this: I wish I could love myself.
Reflection in the water, Jin kissing his reflection. I wish I could love myself.
Now, Reflection is a lovely song and I do not wish to overly read into the lyrics but don’t you think that a namjin link explains Jin’s seeming obsession of himself? Jin also kissed the statue in BS&T and I can gurantee you that the statue is a symbolism of him, judging from all his skin cracking scenes.
That’s a total of two times he’s kissed himself. There was also a scene in his film showing him opening the curtains, only to see a reflection of himself. This means that all he is able to see in the outside world is himself. I think that Jin’s character in the script isn’t able to truly accept himself, thus resorting to physical touches to change that. Obviously that doesn’t work.
Reflection and Jin’s reflection of himself. I wouldn’t have noticed the parallels if not for the new teaser pictures. This brings me back to the ice creams and Tae.
If you look closely, you’ll notice flowers in all three of their ice creams. Pretty peculiar choices for flavour if you ask me. This is the white one Tae has:
A close up on Joon’s one:
And holy fuck do you see that yellow rose along with the same small white flowers in Tae’s ice cream? It’s a very beautful piece of ice cream/art but yellow roses symbolise joy and friendship, which makes me assume that namjin have a platonic relationship if they aren’t alter egos of each other (namjin shippers you’re welcome to think otherwise).
Do you guys also remember Jin owning lilies in pretty much everywhere except BS&T? I’m thinking that flowers also represents him and the fact that all three ice creams have flowers means that the three of them are linked.
I also propose that Tae is Jin’s inner demon given that the statue Jin kissed has Tae’s wings and the statue is Jin. It’s a way to show Jin embracing his inner demon. Perhaps Tae has led Jin astray, covering his eyes whatnot, making Jin unable to connect with himself.
I’m putting my money on a hypothesis that something happened between Tae and Joon and it made him ‘become a demon’. Also, his abusive childhood experiences could have contributed. As a result, he is seeking revenge on others (Jin).
Again, this is only my theory and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
