[#2017BTSFESTA] SPECIAL CHOREOGRAPHY STAGE B. I Like it pt.2 #MoshiMoshi* #Hello #ILikeItpt2 #IsThisReality (https://youtu.be/u2XBh23upio ) *T/N: This is how you say “hello” when you are an the phone in Japanese.
in blood sweat and tears, namjoon’s last line goes:
“너의 그 sweet 앞에 bitter bitter” which translated in english means “in front of your sweet is bitter bitter”
the first instance in which he demonstrates word play in that simple line, is that “bittersweet” (as many of us know) is an actual term used in english, defined as sweet with a bitter aftertaste. in the word “bittersweet”, the word “bitter” literally comes before “sweet”, and so does the subject of his lyric, apparently. sweet, but before that, bitter. just as it is in the word. genius.
the second instance can be seen in his pronunciation of “bitter, bitter.” when he says the words as he raps, it sound more like “biluh biluh” which i really don’t think is a mispronunciation. rather i really think he is trying to create yet another layer in his diction.
“biluh” is the pronunciation of the korean word “빌어”, which means to beg. if one were to listen to the song without knowing the lyrics in english, one might say it sounds like he’s saying “before your sweetness i am begging” which also makes sense not only grammatically (both in korean and english) but it also fits the context of the song, in which he feels as though he is helpless.
namjoon thinks a lot about his lyrics and for him to create so many textures in a simple line truly amazes me. and not in just korean but also in english… like what kind of brain do you need to have to play with multiple language at a time.
for all the fears i have about bts attending bbmas i can’t help but feel overwhelmingly proud of them. there’s not a group of people that would deserve the universe as much and i can’t imagine how happy they must be right now because it’s so big and they’re so incredibly humble and i’m nothing but endless love and pride
“The talented group never quite blew up in Korea like they deserved to, and their growing momentum was abruptly killed when contract issues with their agency, TS Entertainment, put them on hiatus for almost a year. BTS have since hit the big leagues with a similar sound and style to B.A.P, from covering social issues in their music to being fronted by a gravelly voiced rapper. It’s turned B.A.P into more of a mid-tier niche act, rather than the BTS-sized stars they deserve to be. It’s a shame, because Rose is one of the best releases of the group’s career. Title track “Wake Me Up” is one of the few B.A.P singles to meld the angst and aggression of their political or socially-charged tracks with an easily digestible dance beat and addictive chorus. With this group, it’s usually one or the other. “Wake Me Up” also has a more personal touch, with lyrics about leader Bang Yong Guk’s battle with depression and anxiety that should touch fans”
I cannot get over this article
Not comparing B.A.P to BTS but putting them on the same level musically
praising Rose correctly (none of this “it’s different than what most groups are dropping these days which is okay but not great” type bullshit)
Mentions how deep the lyrics actually fucking are
“Wake Me Up” also has a more personal touch, with lyrics about leader Bang Yong Guk’s battle with depression and anxiety that should touch fans”
I THOUGHT TAE WAS ALONE BUT HE WAS WATCHING KDRAMAS WITH JUNGKOOK AND THEY HAD ORDERED TAKE OUT AND JUNGKOOK FELL ASLEEP WHILE WAITING FOR THE FOOD AND TAEHYUNG DECIDED TO BE MISCHIEVIOUS AND FILM JUNGKOOK SLEEPING AND I’M NOT OK???
