*:official music videos/trailers

I’m listening to old bts albums rn and I’m just feeling all sentimental. I’ll always remember listening to the 2 cool 4 skool album for the first time when it came out. I had already heard No More Dream but We Are Bulletproof Pt 1 was an instant favorite I seriously was blown away bc the title track was already so great??? And then the chill track I Like It. I loved the skit and then Circle room cypher so much bc you got to hear them bicker and have fun it was such an experience?? I replayed that album so many times it almost felt like an extension of myself. And omfg if I talk about the O!RUL8,2? album and how good and underrated that album is… I’ll be typing all night.

youtube

This makes me appreciate their dancing skills so much. They never fail to impress me. Can’t wait to see what they’ll be giving us next!

Here are the videos that are used:

I also like to add a few more that I think should be appreciated as well

Enjoy! Feel free to add any other videos that should be looked at as well.

Dream Chasing Rant

Let’s face it: Dreams are a very common thing for humans to have.

Some people may have bigger dreams than others but the importance is that this is something someone desires. Your heart longs for this dream endlessly.

My advice to you: Chase your dream.
No matter how big or small. No matter the probability of you succeeding. No matter who approves or disapproves of it.
Go after it.

Straight from O!RUL8,2? Intro:

“Nothing lasts forever,
You only live once
So live your life, not any other’s lives
Take chances and never regret, never
Never be late to do what you wanna do right now”

It doesn’t matter what odds are stacked against you. Whether it be your religion, your ethnicity, your nationality, your appearance, or even your level of experience or skill. None of that matter because in the end it’s something that you want. For many it’s something you crave more than anything else. Even if the chances are a million to one, there’s no reason why you can’t be that one. Someone has to be that one. The only way for it to ever be impossible is if you don’t see if it is possible.

Appreciation Post

Jimin throughout the Era’s:

2 Cool 4 Skool: 
This boy was the one who got me into this group.. his abs on stage caught me off guard and honestly I thought he was FOINE so I replayed their part and to my surprise I really liked their song- and later that year when they performed their SBS special performance stage with the whole him jumping over peoples that was amazing.. just really amazing this child is so talented and you can see throughout the eras he really shows more and more of his talent 

o!RUL8,2?:
This era showcased Jimin’s dancing talent so much since the last album… his flip in the end of this video as well as the concept trailer for this album wow.. just all the dancing and wow.. it was so is amazing 

Skool Luv Affair: 
I can’t with this era… just HAVE YOU SEEN HIM DANCING TO TOMORROW??!!?! LIKE THATS NOT RIGHT.. okay okay I’m calm down but Jimin in the school uniform in Just One Day and why are there so many flips with this child… and someone explain to me why he was cleaning the bathroom? Anyways his hair was all black with a new cut and that killed me so hard oh my goodness… just child sit down 

Dark&Wild: 
First of all let us talk about this child’s boxing in Danger?? LIKE YOURE IN DANGER YA I KNOW why’d he look so FOINEEE in the MV? And his hair color also killed me…. but you guys I haven’t even got to my favorite part in this era yet… WAR OF HORMONES YES HIS RED CHERRY BUTTOM… HIS PERFECTLY ROUND BUTT WHYYYYYYYYY AND TAEHYUNG SLAPPING HIS BUTT IN PERFORMANCES… wow… and lastly he and his oh so famous weird dance from the practice videos… If you know what I’m talking about you know hehe but wow this was a good era… a real good era WAIT AND LET ME KNOW CAN WE ALL JUST TALK ABOUT HIS HIGH NOTE AND HOW HE ACTUALLY SHOWCASED IT LIVE L.I.V.E thats not okay… HIS HIGH NOTE KILLED ME LIKE NO KILLLLLEDDDDDD MEEEEEEE wow… this was a great era… like a great era..

화양연화 (The Most Beautiful Moment In Life) Pt.1: 
oh my goodness this era on….. this is when all those theories started and got my life revolved around them… literally I can’t.. just…. wow… can we all talk about Jimin in the tub? Burning the paper… he looked so good like sooo good. I think this era really showcased his acting skills… well not just Jimin but all the boys and wow just.. I mean did you see him crying in the bathtub?? That was really attractive.. I think I might be the only one who thinks that but.. he still does and his crying acting was really dope (get it dope? … I’m sorry…) BUT SPEAKING OF DOPE AH MY GAWD DOPE AND HIS RED HAIR (to match his red butt hehe) but seriously wow him in the suit with the glasses with the hair with the dancing with the everything just wow… there are no words but wow… just… wow… and how he just throws his glasses papers and his lanyard.. and may I mention.. when promoting and all the members wore the cop suit… I mean Jungkook owns that look but I wasn’t complainin’ about Jimin either… and just this x

화양연화 (The Most Beautiful Moment In Life) Pt.1: Prologue: 
I’m not sure if this is part of Part 1 or Part 2 but here it is anyways- There wasn’t any dialogues between the boys other than in the beginning and in the middle with Jin asking the boys if they should go to the beach but I think all the boys not just Jimin’s acting was great in this. But Jimin looks so very good in the prologue and him sleeping in the back of the truck oh my god please this is it wow..

화양연화 (The Most Beautiful Moment In Life) Pt.2:
Please let us start with this child’s beautiful orange hair… his orange hair is my favorite out of all his hair colors so far as well as the styling.. wow.. just.. wow.. we can start with Butterfly - this song really let him show us his beautiful voice because it was a slower more mellow song.. I think it fit his voice very well because it was so sweet like his voice and his high note in this song as well.. I just really love this song and I truly love his voice in it~ BUT RUN THO AHH MERR GERDD okay okay this child in the music video thoo he looked sooo sooo attractive all the outfits and his hair style they were all so perfect and ON POINT.. this was also the era of the CHOKERS OH MY GOODNESS JIMIN AND HIS CHOKER CAN WE JUST TAKE A MOMENT AND APPRECIATE AHH and this is where I found my “mocha” for Jimin (if you want me to explain what mocha means let me know~ ah get it let me know?? sorry moving on) and may I mention he looked a lot like GD this era which I think is so cute~ 

화양연화 (The Most Beautiful Moment In Life) Pt.3: Young Forever: 
Well.. this is the last part to the ‘The Most Beautiful Moment In Life’ series and I was not ready for this at all (like the rest of Army’s). Jimin is back to his black/brown hair and honestly I’m a little sad that he doesn’t have his orange hair because that hair was my favorite but I mean he is very attractive in this so… did I tell you IM SO EXCITED FOR THIS COMEBACK OH MY GOODNESS but he is wet… like wow he was so attractive like SO attractive I can’t say too much about this one just because the only things BigHit released were the concept pictures as well as the MV so… BUT IM SO SUPER EXCITED FOR IT I CANT CONTAIN MYSELF AHHH

anonymous asked:

Hi! So I'm kinda a newbie here & I can see that this page is knowledgeable enough to answer my curiosity hehe. Can you pls tell me about the meaning behind bts' each album, like why is there pt 1 something like that? :D

Ooh, big question anon…BTS has had only 2 studio albums and 2 EPs [and a handful of singles, JP releases and compilations]. I don’t think I can go too deep into the meaning, but the I can tell you a bit about some of the featured songs on the album, the general style and concept of the albums! ALSO: If you want a general masterpost with info about BTS as a group, click here

BTS Album Masterpost

  • 2 Cool 4 Skool
    • The 1st single album is the 1st part of their school-themed trilogy with a very strong and almost aggressive feel. BTS makes it known that just because they’re an idol group, does not mean they cannot be true hip hop.
    • No More Dream is a song/mv that addresses the oppressive environments that squander the students, forcing them to adopt the dreams of others, usually the dreams of parents and teachers.
    • We Are Bulletproof pt. 2 [pt. 2 because Rap Monster, before BTS was made, released a pt. 1 of this song] is more of an anthem for the boys, full of pride. The boys make it apparent that they are not to be messed with, not after all the work they’ve done and are doing to realize their dreams. 
  • O!RUL8, 2?
    • Their first EP and the 2nd part of their school themed trilogy.
    • It continues to call out the institution that forces them to choose between their dreams and the demands of others. However, it also has songs that represent the young love one finds between school children, as well the day dreams that many school boys find themselves lost in.
    • Satoori Rap is a very unique rap: it has J-Hope and Suga rapping to each other, each in their own dialects. This is FULL of korean sayings and symbolism, so the translation doesn’t do it justice.
    • It includes Cypher Pt. 1, a rap featuring RM, Suga and J-Hope, showcasing their various skills and styles as rappers. 
  • Skool Luv Affair
    • This album, in my opinion, is my favorite. It’s the 3rd and final installment of their school themed trilogy. The more serious songs of the album, Spine Breaker and Tomorrow, have very impactful lyrics and are produced spectacularly.
    • Spine Breaker calls out those who disrespect the parents/caretakers who take provide for them, forcing their parents to “bend over” and work even harder, to provide for their children who continue to demand material goods from them and ignore their struggles.
    • Tomorrow reminds the listener to persevere on and to continue to believe in the dreams we have, that there will always be a tomorrow if we continue to struggle, if we continue to live despite the naysayers we can succeed.
    • Despite these deep songs, they have the two romance focused songs: Boy In Luv shows the rough and tough side of BTS, where they ask why the girl they love keeps them on their toes, constantly “shaking” their hearts. Just One Day, a more mellow song, shows their sweet side, with fluid dance moves and sweet gazes into the camera.
  • Dark & Wild
    • This album has a heavy focus on percussion, hard hip hop beats and a very “up-in-your-face” kind of feel.
    • Danger and War of Hormone are both intense songs, the first one talking about the unrequited love and second talking about how they’re *mature* now, they’re boys who go crazy after girls, all thanks to the hormone. Rain and Let Me Know are the more deep, emotional songs reminiscent of Skool Luv Affair’s style
    • The rest of the album has a heavy focus on the production of the music, such as 2nd Graders and Hip Hop Lover
    • Cypher Pt. 3 is the best Cypher they’ve released IMO, a great showcase of the rap line and their improved skills

The albums are all very well developed and each come with a concept that’s served up bangtan style. These are my opinions and generalizations of the albums so sorry if I’ve misinterpreted anything. I might update this later on to include more albums and singles.
