Analysis of Jikook in The SHOW behind BTS
…a.k.a throwback in late 2015 ♥
Hello, sweet Anon! :) I’m sorry I’m doing this just now. I’m not sure what exactly you meant, but I suppose it was this… gosh I’m sorry if I made an entire “analysis” for something completely else. Also I know people noticed these things long ago, but you know, I think good Jikook throwback can’t be bad. Also this is from late 2015 (I think - correct me if I’m wrong) and you know how fond I am about 2015! :D So let’s get on to it.
Jikook here, in “The SHOW” could be
described as boyfriends, making up after a fight. The younger does it by
circling around the older one, trying hard to make him laugh, reacting to
everything he does. The older one does it by torturing poor Seokjin, using him
for his weird bursts of affectionate singing and generally making Jungkook pay
attention to him. Jimin just tries to look like he doesn’t give a duck, but at
the same time he does everything he can just for Jungkook to come near him, so he can ignore him again, looking like cold drama queen. Jeon complies very
well and as much as Jimin tries to be cool, Jungkook is more nervous, more
goofy and childish than usual. Both of them remind me of me when I used to
fight with my crush at high school :D
At first we see Jimin, playing with this “decorative
ball” – I don’t know what other name should I give it. Jungkook’s in the back,
the second Jimin starts playing with the ball he watches him and quickly
figures his next steps.
In next moment he comes near, announcing that “That
ball is not that heavy at all!” while smiling sheepishly. Nobody asked you tho,
Jungkookie. Jimin seems like he didn’t even hear what Jungkook said. No
laughing or smiling reaction, as we’re used to seeing from him. Jungkook’s
attempt doesn’t work, so he puts the ball back on the table. (I feel sorry for
We catch a glimpse of Jungkook (and Jin and Hoseok) practicing Run choreo. Jungkook dances just in front of Jimin all the time – at one point he even comes less than foot away from him. But Jimin does nothing. Complete stone-cold pokerface. Again, it doesn’t have to mean something, but judging by his general attitude not only to Jungkook at other times, but to Jin on the same day (before he and Jungkook ‘made up’ :D) he was most likely pissed at Kookie.
Fast forward to Hobi, delivering water.
Jungkook claims that “water from somebody else tastes the best.” These are just
screen shots, but he literally turned his head towards Jimin and looked at him,
as he said it. Jimin was laughing and smiling just seconds before at Hobi
When Jungkook spoke, pokerface appeared again and he looked away. Both
him and Jungkook swung their heads down, looking on the floor. JK did not say a
thing after that there.
My favorite parts are coming, brace
yourself, it’s hilarious. Jin struggle for his life and comfort, as Jimin uses
him to make Jungkook jealous and Jungkook to make Jimin laugh. I admire this
human, because if it was me, I would be cringing in the corner of room instead
of handling it so well in the middle of them.
Jimin hangs out with Jin, talking about Jin’s birthday. Casual Jeon appears,
trying to stick himself between the two without much success.
So he stands next
to Jin, when suddenly Jimin decides to be a little torturous shit to him (and
poor Seokjin) and announces he’s gonna sing a song for Jin-hyung.
Jungkook just watches him. I watch Jungkook’s mouth, pressed into thin line (he’s not a fan of this whole situation, obviously.)
Jin stares at the ceiling, expression in
his face calling supernatural forces for salvation. No help comes. Jungkook
manages to bear whole 15 seconds of Jimin, serenading to Jin, before he
interrupts him. “When’s your birthday, hyung?”
What kind of silly and
completely obvious question is that? Do you mean you forgot Jin’s birthday,
when most likely you all celebrated together and you live with him? It was just few days ago. Anyway he disturbs Jimin’s singing for a second, so this
question was a success. Jimin touches Jin’s face, trying to gain his
attention. In my opinion, he’s trying too hard. Just let it go, Jimin, Jungkook
already *got* your message. Sthob it. But he doesn’t stop, no way.
Jin flinches: “Don’t touch my face!” He pushes Jimin away and explains he hates when people touch his face. Guess who’s hands touch his face the second he says it to support Jimin-hyung and make him laugh? …just guess. Yes. Jungkook’s hands are already touching Seokjin’s face, while he laughs adorably. Jimin was smiling a little before at Jin, but after Jungkook’s action + smile, he’s not smiling. Not until he touches Jin again and smiles again, this time JK left.
Jin and Jimin have this bickering argument about a gift for Jin’s birthday so Jimin decides to sing him a happy birthday song. Seokjin is obviously not very comfortable about all of this and tries to push Jimin away in his funny, non-harming way – throwing sleeves of his jacket around. Then he even pushes Jimin away weakly, while sending him away. Then he pushes him *hardly*, losing his shit. He stares at the camera seriously as he says that he’ll really do something to Jimin. Jimin can’t stop with his singing and clinging to hyung.
Koalest Koala Jimin demands Seokjin to sing him a carol. It’s payback time. Jin starts to sing and cling to Jimin too much to make him uncomfortable, too. Jimin tastes his own medicine as he struggles to get free.
Jimin now sings the carol and looks around, to his left multiple
times. I’m not completely sure if he looks at Jungkook but just few moments
later, just as they start with the “I LOVE YOU” song, guess who emerges from
that direction? JK. Of course it’s Jungkook. He walks like a complete *boss*
just in front of the lens of the camera.
Jimin very nonchalantly changes his position, now standing next to Jungkook.
Jungkook announces he made a song, too. Jin asks him what song. “I love you,” answers Kook, very creatively. Anyway they all laugh afterwards.
In the next moment poor baby Seokjin serves
as a tool for Jikook, making up. Jimin looks still done with Jungkook, while he
hits him with Jin’s arms/sleeves, making weird noises.
Jin complains about hard
life of a hyung (I feel you, Kim Seokjin) and Jimin agrees. Jimin, you made him
suffer today, you have no right to complain. Anyway Jungkook stops hitting
Jimin and walks from behind Jin to see Jimin’s reaction.
Jimin probably decided that Jungkook’s
efforts are too cute and it’s enough. He cames up with the message for fans. JK
asks him what message and quickly looks down.
There’s like 4 seconds of
silence, while Jimin (in my opinion obviously) waits for Jungkook to look him
in the eyes. In the second he does that, Jimin sings “I love you.”
Just look at the bunny’s smile. Just look. My heart burst when I saw the way he smiles happily at his hyung’s singing. Finally, Jimin forgave him whatever it was he had to forgive him.
Afterwards, they’re good. Jimin is laughing and smiling again with Jungkook, dancing and fooling around.
To sum it up, they were going through some sort of fight that day, who knows what it was about? But Jimin was just being scary shady Jimin, clinging to Jin to get Jungkook’s attention and Jungkook was following them around, trying to make up with Jiminie-hyung. Thanksgod it had a happy ending.
And for the very end, I’m adding this accurate picture of inner Jimin, satisfied with himself on that day:
Hope you enjoyed, this drained me so much :D Once again: I love 2015. K, bye.
