I have a theory about WINGS era.
Right here goes nothing:
So in this era it has been made pretty clear that Tae and Jin are parralels or opposites (Tae being the “tempter” and Jin being “purity” in BST, Tae’s top being an inverted version of Jin’s in the YNWA photoshoots, Tae and Jin taking off their jackets in sync and doing the framing with their fingers motion in Spring Day etc…). And the 2 latest videos seem to centre around JK.
If you noticed in Not Today Jin and Tae were flanking JK in the running scenes with a great distance between them and the other members. Tae was on JK’s left side while Jin was on JK’s right side. This may just be coincidence or it could be referencing the left and right hands of God.
The left hand of God is the place that Lucifer (Satan) once sat while the right hand is seen as being occupied by Jesus or Gabriel (depends who you ask). So it seems fitting that Tae, the fallen angel, is on the left side; with Jin, the person Tae tempted (which is almost like how the Devil tried to tempt Jesus while he was in the dessert), on the right. But what does this make JK?
I beleive that JK is Abraxas. Mainly due to these quotes:
“That which is spoken by God[-the-Sun] is life; that which is spoken by the Devil is death; Abraxas speaketh that hallowed and accursed word, which is life and death at the same time. Abraxas begetteth truth and lying, good and evil, light and darkness in the same word and in the same act. Wherefore is Abraxas terrible (- Carl Jung, Seven Sermons of the Dead, Sermon 3)” In Carl Jung’s book Abraxas represents the driving force of individuation (synthesis, maturity, oneness); while God and the Devil represent the driving forces of differentiation (emergence of consciousness and opposites).
In Spring Day, JK sees himself on the train. The him on the train appears to be maturer than the one that the train passed, coinciding with Carl’s idea of Abraxas. Also you’ll notice that once again Jin is one JK’s right side and Tae on the left but this time behind the other members.
Another quote is from Herman Hesse’s Demian:
“The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Who would be born must first destroy a world. The bird flies to God. That God’s name is Abraxas.” If you combine these two quotes with the reflection in JK’s eye after the other members got shot, he is standing in the centre with what looks to be a gun.
A person born must first destroy the world. The members are JK’s world as shown by the worry on his face in Spring Day when he couldn’t find them.
And the reflection JK appears to be staring right at him because the bird flies to Abraxas. Reflection JK is JK’s shadow from the Begin short film, the shadow shown to have wings at the end. Two halves of one whole. As stated before Abraxas represents indivisualatity and JK is now alone.
Also from the short film is the painting. Blood splatters onto it while JK is crying. May or may not be foreshadowing, I don’t know.
One final thing I have to add is that if you watch Not Today before Spring Day its almost like JK is reminiscing the times he had with his friends before they died. There is a scene on the train where JK is alone on the cart then opens his eyes and everyone is there, almost like he’s wishing they’re there.
(Sorry about gif quality)
Not only that but in the behind the scenes RapMon said that they’re filming his birthday scene. But why was JK infront of the cake? Why did he look so sad? Then there was a similar scene where JK is alone in the room with a match, it goes out then time appears to reverse and everyone is there. He misses them. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a scene that took place not long after he shot them.
Sorry if this makes no sense, its 3am roughly.
