BTS Peter Pan Theory

Here is my video explaining it clearly:

On Instagram all of the members except Jin have the hashtags #NEVERLAND. Neverland is a fictional location featured in the works of J. M. Barrie and those based on them. It is the dwelling place of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys. They also have the #Young and #Play two more things connected to the Peter Pan Myth. 

(also notice here Rap Monster playing with Marbles, the Lost Boys were always playing with marbles) 


(this also explains why they are all barefoot)

Here are the different Lost Boy Characters.

Tootles is described as the most unfortunate and humblest of the band. Tootles does not have a speaking voice, so he communicates with a large pad of paper.

(LOOK WHO ELSE USES A LARGE PAD OF PAPER, in this teaser photo you can see V with a large pad of paper with words and the members names on it, a way of communicating with them)

Nibs is described as happy and debonair, possibly the bravest Lost Boy. 

(in the prologue Rap Monster is the only one to try to do anything about the situation they were in, writing on the mirror “WE NEED TO SURVIVE”)

Slightly is described as the most conceited of the boys, because he believes that he, unlike the others, remembers what life was like before he was “lost.”

(Jimin is the one who puts the photo of the members)

Curly (“Cubby” in the Disney version) is described by Barrie as “a pickle” (a person who gets into pickles) and has curly hair, hence his name. Curly is also a little timid but has a kind heart. 

(Jhope did have curly hair in their teaser pics, also cubby is the overweight lost boy and we see jhope dealing with body image issues in the I NEED U original MV)

The Twins – First and Second Twin 

(THE TWINS ARE OBVIOUSLY SUGA AND JUNGKOOK THIS EXPLAINS ALL OF THEIR CLOSENESS IN ALL THE MVS AND PROLOGUE) Also the Twins is Peter Pan are ALWAYS together no matter what, in Run when Suga and Jungkook have that fight, that leads to their deaths in I NEED U. The twins ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SEPERATED.

In Kensington Gardens (a peter pan novel) all children begin life as birds who will then become human upon being given to their parents. In the Prologue, I NEED U and Run, birds are seen constantly. 

The members are always seen looking up towards the sky also, even having a pillow fight with Feathers

The Reason the Lost Boys can fly is because they are back to the moment in their life where they have that ability, the are stuck in time. Try to guess who attempts to fly?

A quote from a Peter Pan Novel. “Mrs Darling did not know, but after thinking back into her childhood she just remembered a Peter Pan who was said to live in the fairies. There were odd stories about him, as that when children died he went part of the way with them, so that they should not be frightened.”


This is why at the end of Run (which is the prologue) Jin disappears, he’s done, he doesn’t go all the way to the afterlife and stay there with them he “[goes] part of the way with them, so that they should not be frightened.”

Another Connection


Fairies are simply small humans with Butterfly wings. We constantly see Jin with a butterfly and after seeing these photos I realized that represents Tinker Bell. 

Tinker bell can die when someone doesn’t believe in her.

The lyrics of butterfly also remind me of Peter Pan’s relationship with Tinker Bell

Butterfly Lyrics:

“All of this seems like a dream”

“Dont try to disappear”<—Tinkerbell disappears when not believed in

“It’s too beautiful so I’m afraid”

“Will you stay by my side”

“I’m afraid that if I let go of your hand you’ll fly away, you’ll shatter”

“Will you stop time” <—Time is Frozen in Neverland


Taehyung also tweeted this song in October (Lost Boys by Ruth B is a song about Peter Pan and the Lost Boys) 


anonymous asked:

No, Peter Pan did not kill the lost boys originally. Peter Pan wasn't a fairy tale, he was a character in Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens as a completely different character with a different story who was then used in the play Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. The Lost Boys are sent to Neverland as babies and return to Earth when they grow up and get replaced by new Lost Boys. Hook wasn't a Lost Boy as it is implied in the play that he attended collage and came later to Neverland.

thansk for cleraring that up!

Fairies are exquisite dancers (1906). Illustration by Arthur Rackham for Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by J. M. Barrie.

“The fairies had as yet scarcely missed him, for they could not dance, so heavy were their hearts. They forget all the steps when they are sad, and remember them again when they are merry. David tells me that fairies never say, ‘We feel happy’: what they say is, 'We feel dancey.' “
