BTS Theory - The real story explained ~ Part 5 (last part).

[PLEASE READ IN ORDER : Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3 / Part 4 / Conclusion]

What’s going to happen next ?

So we are now right back where we started. V just killed his father. We learned about his habits, his fears, his memories and his feelings. But now that he’s ready to take responsability for his actions, what’s going to happen ? Does this story will even get a happy ending ? Well there’s actually a few hints placed inside the MV that implies that they’re eventually going to change for the good and that they’re on the right track for a happy ending.

1st hint : We see them running through the whole music video and it can be interprated as running away from responsabilites, from adulthood. But in this one scene, they are all stopped. Facing the scenery. It’s the only time we see them all together and looking at the path before them. In the prologue, Jungkook was doing the same he was looking at the scenery, and that meant he wanted to grow up. If they’re all doing this right now does that mean they’ll eventually want to grow up and take the path to adulthood ?

2nd hint : In the end of the car scene in Run, the fact that they’re all getting inside Jin’s car and that it’s Jin (the only grown up one) who’s driving them towards the same direction that the other cars are driving in the tunnel, could mean that he’s going to take them into the path to adulthood with him. He’s leaving the tunnel (dark and small place) and leading them towards the right way.

3rd hint : a bolder hint that highly implies they’re gonna quit this unhealthy lifestyle is in the last scene of Run’s mv. Jimin (the third member most mature of the group) who’s still in the bathtub after the scene that we saw a few seconds ago in the mv, is burning a polaroid of them without Jin. The times where they were behaving like ignorant kids are over. He burns the picture of their group without Jin because he doesn’t want them to be without Jin anymore, he wants them to join Jin.

This scene is still a representation of V’s memory. V is not in the room with jimin so it can’t be his real memory. It’s probably made-up memory. It can’t be real either since Jimin is holding a picture from the prologue which technically never happened since it was V’s dream. So this scene is a representation of what V’s mind really wants, which is leave « neverland » (hence the picture from the prologue) and join Jin. He  mixes up events that already happened and things that he really wants and this is how is unconscious created this scene.

4th hint : The final hint is the scene that takes place just before V wakes up. It is again a combination of a real event that already happen and V’s imagination. The real event that happen was probably just them walking in the tunnel and Jin in the car behind following them. Jungkook was walking a little slower than them and maybe turning around from time to time to look at Jin. (This is probably what triggered V’s mind to imagine Jungkook’s car scene in I NEED U)

But we’re in V’s mind and the memory is distorded. Somewhat, he’s seeing this scene in Jin’s point of view. But it feels like Jungkook is actually looking at present-V. He smiles at him, like he’s telling him that everything is going to be ok and that he can wake up now. The other members represent the childish, messed-up side, and they’re disapearing. Jin and the car are the good side. Present-V is in the « car ». Jungkook is lighted, he’s letting him know that it’s over now, they’ll stop doing bad things and they’ll just going to be happy together if he wakes up. And what do you know, the next scene is him actually waking up (coming out of the water). Jungkook and Jin actually have a special connection (eldest-maknae). On instagram, Jungkook’s concept photo (for hyyh pt.2) has the hashtag #CUPID and Jin had #psique and I thought that was weird because I didn’t see the connection between those hashtags and the concept, or the others hashtags, so I did some research. Turns out psique is another name for Psyché, who was a King’s daughter during Greek antiquity. It said that she was so flawless and beautiful that Venus was jealous of her. In the end she was too beautiful to have a husband so she ended up marrying Cupid.

Now I’m not saying that Jin and Jungkook are married, but they definitely have a special connection. And V is only realizing now that Jungkook was on Jin’s side all along.

Now that he has woken up, he’s ready to change the turn of events and make sure that I Need U doesn’t happen.

Ok I don’t know if I’m the only one who notice but the hyyh story reminds me A LOT about the video game Life is Strange. How Maxine can control her fate, kinda like V. How she travels through time, like V too in a way. He goes in the past (memories) and imagines the future. And also the infamous Butterfly Effect (how a simple choice can effect the whole story), is kind of the theme of both stories. And even the reccurent presence of polaroids. Which is not only present in the Mvs, but in real life too with all of BTS’s polaroids. Their concept pictures for Hyyh pt.1 were similar to polaroids. They even went as far as doing an exhibition ! This is when I was completely mind blown because it’s just like the video game. For those who don’t know the game, Maxine, the main character’s passion is photography, but polaroids in particular. And in the end she wins a contest and her picture gets to be part of an exhibition. It’s an important moment in the game. Her fate relays in that one picture that is part of the exhibition. She can travel through time thanks to her polaroids. That’s why she needed that picture so much, so she could go back in time. And then it reminded me of Jin. Jin is always seen taking pictures and videos. Maybe he’s filming cause he doesn’t want to let go of the moment. Filming means he can go back anytime he wants by watching the tapes. Just like Maxine who can go back to the time she took the picture just by looking at it, he maybe desperatly keeps filming in hope of changing the past. Like if something messes up, he knows they can go back.

When Jimin burns the picture of them in the end of Run = they can’t go back anymore. They have to face the future, and join Jin.

But of course it is impossible to change the past, or to travel through time. This is why all of those things are happening in V’s mind. But with the exhibition that they did, we actually get to experience the time travel, as if we were in V’s mind. By looking at each picture we’re going back to that moment in time. Just like the video game were she can travel randomly by looking at random polaroids, we are experiencing ourselves the journey in those different dimensions but we have no idea what’s going on cause the story line isn’t in chronological order and we are traveling through different moments randomly too so we have to put all the pieces of the puzzle together to understand the story.

To sum it up, this whole thing is way bigger than we think it is.

Even if we do our best to understand every little detail and write theories about everything, we can never be sure. They don’t help us AT ALL in finding the truth about the story. Actually, they do the opposite by giving us harder clues and giving us more questions than answers. They don’t even want to give us a lead. 

It’s like they’re doing it on purpose.

And I think I know the purpose now.

The butterfly effect. A butterfly effect is when one thing can change the whole story.

That’s the point.

Our point of views and theories, the way we interprate all of this changes the story, over, over and over again.

We all have our own interpretation, the « story » is just a big canvas that could go in an infinite number of directions.

The story could be about Jin’s death, about V’s death, about all of them dying, about none of them dying. It all depends on your perspective. Of course this theory that I wrote is my own perspective and I’m still standin by it. But the fact that there’s so many theories makes the story a lot more flexible and interesting. It makes us actually experience the butterfly effect. Isn’t that, like, super smart ? I really wondered why they wouldn’t tell us explicitly the story of the MVS but it makes sense now. It’s a lot more interesting this way, we’re experiencing it fully.

What message do they try to express with this hyyh storyline ?

The thing is that they were too afraid of growing up because they thought they would lose their freedom and their ability to express themselves. For them, adulthood = bad. But their behaviours were dangerous and just self-destructive. Their « freedom » was working against them. They thought it was youth vs adults but it’s not the case. They CAN be adults and be free at the same time, they just need to find the right way. And they will, because once they’ll find it, we saw that Jin finally joins them. This scene can be interpretated that way too.

Even though Jin is an « adult » , it wasn’t the fact that the other members were young that bothered him and kept him away from them. It was the fact that they weren’t mature enough. But once they « grow up » meaning they mature, he WILL join them.  Because every card is important in a house of card, and if one card is missing, the house of cards can’t be complete. And once they’ll get Jin on their side they’re gonna be stronger than ever. And together they’ll find a way to fight for what they believe in, fight for their freedom. They were afraid that youth and adulthood was separated and they don’t wanted youth to end but youth is just a mentality, it won’t end if they don’t want it to end. (Their new album is litteraly called Young Forever)

As long as we’re together, it’s the most beautiful moment in life.

This last image is here to reassure us. The most beautiful moment in now, and it won’t end until you decide it.

Rap Monster talk during Hyyh On Stage :

“Everyone says that we’re all in our most beautiful moments. I wanted to look at the real meaning behind that. What’s the meaning of Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa? Why did we decided to name our album that? It can be our youth. I think it’s always in our mind though. If you know and feel this moment truthfully with the heart, and that you’re ready to accept the moment, then from the time you’re born, the entire life can be beautiful. If someone doesn’t know, then their life is never beautiful no matter what. Yes, so if you guys can feel the most beautiful moment in life, I’m sure from this moment, til we die our entire life will beautiful.”

There’s no point in trying to change the past, because it already happen.

« If you can’t go back you might as well just forget about your mistakes » - Nevermind.

« Je ne regrette rien (I have no regrets) ».

« Breathe or dream » - Blooming Youth (hyyh pt.1 intro).

We need to stop running away and being afraid of what’s on the other side. We have to take responsabilities for our acts.

“Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to fall down
Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to be injured »
(It’s like they’re saying to V that it’s okay, even if he did a mistake, something bad, he has to get up and keep running)

What has happened has happened and we can’t change it. As long as we’re together, it’ll be ok. We shouldn’t stop at hard times, but run. Forever.

Last words of the Now 3 photobook:

Thanks for reading! I invite you to re-watch all of their MVs from Hyyh era now with that theory in mind, it’ll make a lot more sense :) Have a good day (or good night)!

A Gamble With Love, Part 1: Do I Know You

I’m so happy the Lotto MV came out like I was hoping. Hope you’re all ready for gangster Xiumin. This one is gunna be a series because there’s so much I want to do with this story I need to break it up, but ya here’s the first part :)))))

Summary: You’re not quite sure how your friend managed to drag you out to an illegal gambling competition, but you were there. And someone unsuspected wants to make your aquaintance.

Genre: Angst

Word Count: 2788

Characters: Reader (Y/N), Luna, Jonghyun, D.O, Xiumin. Mentions of Sehun, Baekhyun, Yixing, Jongdae, and Kai.

Saying it wasn’t typically your scene was an understatement. You’d never done anything like this before. Your friend Luna’s fiance, Jonghyun, was a gambler and he was finally taking her to see what is was like. She was nervous (understandable) and asked if you would join her.

“Isn’t it illegal?” you asked.

“Yes, but they’ve never been caught. Please. At least if we get arrested, I want you to be in jail with me!” she joked.

“I don’t know…”

“If things don’t look good I’m sure no one would mind if we left.”

“I guess… Who knows, It could be fun.”

“That’s the spirit!’ she cheered, lightly punching your arm.
