Flight Log: Theory
Since the whole Flight Log: trilogy started I avoid making any sort of theories because I didn’t want to jump the gun and be wrong. But now that it’s coming to an end, and after seeing everyone else’s perspective on what’s happening, I wanted to make my one and only theory on what I think is happening the whole time.
I think people are overthinking what’s happening throughout Flight Log. It’s simpler than what you think.
Flight Log: Departure
In the trailer it starts off as normal. The boys are on some sort of road trip with one another having a fun time.
While Jinyoung falls asleep they get into a car accident.
That’s explains why in the next scene its him running and looking around, confused and lost from the others.
I’m not exactly sure if it was a symbolism thing or actually on purpose but since the accident was really bad, the reason why he’s alone because he’s the only lucky one that remained in the car while others where thrown out or something due to the accident.
He wakes up and sees the members but they are far from where he is (which also supports the flung from vehicle theory. They start flying one by one (aka dying).
There’s a saying that when you die or come close to death your life flashes before your eyes, that’s why Jinyoung keeps going in and out of memories he had with the other members.
Jinyoung is so distant/the main focus because he’s the only one that survives; hence why he can’t fly.
Flight Log: Turbulence
In the Turbulence trailer its shows how much Jinyoung wants to be with the others and he’s struggles with being alone. That’s why there is multiple scenes with him looking jealous while the other have fun among themselves.
He wants to join them but he can’t. Causing him to just want to give up (may be hinting towards possible suicide attempt or he’s body going between death and life)
In the Hard Carry MV, the opening scene starts off him being only one in the car (which always supports the flung theory)
Throughout the video he’s trapped. It’s a constant war on whether or not he has the will to survive.
A lot of people don’t really consider the title tracks and the lyrics to go along with the storyline but I think the songs also help puzzle this theory together.
Fly - About flying together or let’s going off to a different place with one another.
Hard Carry - About Got7 hard carrying (or helping Jinyoung survive) That’s why Jinyoung sings the line “"Let’s fly again fly again fly again, I got this right.” Meaning he wants to try to see if he can fly too all because he wants “to fly” /or be with the rest of Got7. He sings that line as he levitates off the ground; something we see the other members do too in the Fly music video. But the Got7 members quickly ‘save’ him from succumbing to death.
That’s just one examples of Got7 saving him out of the many throughout the music video.
Flight Log: Arrival
In Arrival it can go either way. It’s him coming to terms with the death of the others and he decides to survive for them or he dies and is finally reunited with them. But either way the whole thing is about their friendship, they will always be there for one another.
Fly - flying off together
Hard Carry - They’ll always hard carry each other
Never Ever - Possibly about never (ever) giving up.
Things Got7 have said to support this theory

JYP is just fucking with us and It’s all a bad dream Jinyoung has as he sleeps. It ends with him waking up back in the car as if nothing happens.
