BTS Theory – The Most Beautiful Moment In Life = the Evolution of youth (+ Pt. 2 Concept photos)

BTS made it clear that The Most Beautiful Moment In Life represents Youth.

Suga’s first intro song of the album (titled blooming youth), deals with the worries of a young boy, anxious about his future. In the music video/ animation, we see what it seems like to be a high school student (We can deduce that from the classroom set in the beginning, and the boy’s uniform) playing basketball.

« Instead of the ball, I throw my future »
« The horoscope that others paint
Disqualified from the criteria of success »

A commun scenario of a teenager worried about his future and having disagreements with what society tells him to be like.

« The dribble that quickens, a heart that becomes happier
I think this moment will be eternity »

This is the beginning of adulthood when you start realizing that life is harder than you thought, and you suddenly feel like you caught the peter pan syndrom. The boy doesn’t want to grow up. And he escapes his responsabilites, he escapes real life by playing basketball. He’s running away (from his problems).

« But the night which came from the sunset
If it comes again then this reality becomes a bit worn away
If I come to my senses again I become more terrified »

~

This also goes with the storyline they created with the I Need U MV. It could definitely symbolize what the members felt when V died. Or maybe what just JIN felt, when all of the members died, except him.
« Others have ran ahead of me but
Why am I still here »

I think the intro sums up the feel and the meaning of the album quite well.

Just a confuse young person going through ups and downs, going through tough moments, having to make tough decisions and feeling abandonned and alone. Hopeless. Wondering why life is the way it is. What’s his purpose on earth.
The Most Beautiful Moment In Life pt.1 is also about showing the beauty of innocence. Youth is also about not worrying, having fun with your friends and playing like children. But in parallel, we have those tough moments and serious problems. (The I Need U MV is a great example that illustrates this opposition)

The different types of songs in the album also express that diversity : I Need U, Hold Me Tight/ Dope, Fun boys/ Rain etc …

This is why I think pt.1 symbolize the beginning of youth (blooming youth) were you feel lost and confuse. You’re not a child, not an adult yet. Life doesn’t seem to go your way. But we still have that innocence left in ourselves.

Love Is Not Over, the outro.  
It could possibly be a hint that it isn’t over. Meaning the fact that we saw them dying in the first part doesn’t mean it’s over.
They didn’t actually die ? They’ll go back in time ? It was all a dream ?


Which leads us to Pt. 2!

Indeed, with an intro like Nevermind (from suga again), it surely feels like a come back from the dead. No it isn’t over, we’re not gonna let this bring us down. It has this feeling, like they’re gonna fight for their lives.
Nevermind, we’re not going to give up.
Never mind about the troubles.
« I don’t give a shit, I don’t give a fuck »
A confuse and lost Suga, asking « why ? » became confident and determined. He will not let people walk over him.

In the animation, we see a guy running again. In the beginning he’s playing basketball. Feels like we’re still in pt.1 Comeback Trailer BUT THEN he sits and sees a butterfly. This time instead of running away from his problems, he runs towards the butterfly. He runs towards hope.

The intro sets the theme for the album. And it looks like it’s a re-born.

Butterfly = symbole of hope.

Follow the butterfly and don’t give up, keep chasing it. Keep chasing your freedom. When you’ll catch the butterfly, you’ll be free.
When V jumped in the prologue, and the song butterfly started playing, it felt like he finally succeeded in freeing himself. He became a butterfly.
But it wasn’t the right way. There’s other ways to catch the butterfly. There is other ways to find freedom. Maybe pt.2 is about exploring those other ways.

The Most Beautiful Moment In Life Pt.2 album cover has a butterfly on it, unlike Pt.1. The colors are also different.

You may have seen this picture on twitter, and as you might have notice, when you put all of the album covers next to each other, it goes together like the pieces of a puzzle.

It looks like the butterfly in the pt.2 album cover is flying towards the sun. Again, a symbole of hope (you should never give up, it isn’t over yet)

When I first saw this image, the 4 seasons immediatly came to my mind.

If I’m not wrong :
White : winter
Pink : spring
Blue : summer
Peach : autumn

It even goes in the right order, that’s amazing.

Now we know winter is the first season of the year. It is cold, dark, bitter, you feel somehow more lonely and sad this time of the year.
The color white = no colors, monotone. Life is just about living the same routine everyday.
Spring, the season that comes after winter. Flowers are starting to bloom, we’re making good and happy memories. The idea of innocence and having fun without worrying is coming back to mind. This is like an introduction of youth. The beauty of youth.
The color pink = reminds me of love. Which is the theme of most of their songs, and also a big part of youth. First loves, One-sided love, heart breaks etc...

I’ll have to listen to the album and watch the mvs to get an idea of summer and autumn. But it is definitely warmer colors. Peach(autumn) unlike spring (light pink) seems like a more mature and bold color (they have matured now?). And summer = warm-blooded ? They’re no longer afraid of anything.

The concept photos came out today. Before even analysing the pictures in detail, we can immediatly notice the contrast within the colors between the concept photos for Pt.1 and Pt.2.

The Most Beautiful Moment In Life pt.1 concept photos (white and light pink) :

The Most Beautiful Moment In Life pt.2 concept photos (blue and orange).

I’m not going to get deeper into this but I found some similarities between those photos and the I NEED U MV (I’m sure there’s more than what I just noticed for now).

Suga’s position.

Jin sitting down.

J-hope walking on/next to the road and “sleeping”.

And Jungkook is being pushed towards the road.

And by who? …Taehyung, of course. Because he’s the origine of the members deaths. The fact that Jungkook’s in the shopping cart could symbolize the fact that he’s the youngest, and has to be carried by the members.

But this could also mean that Taehyung is actually protecting him. He’s holding the cart tight, he will not let Jungkook die this time.


Taehyung is standing in a high place again. But this time there are bars in front of him. He can’t jump.

I also noticed something weird in the group picture. The crossing light is actually red. But they keep walking.

They don’t care now and they won’t let anything stop'em. They are free. Or at least they risking their lives for their freedom. And they look quite happy in the picture too.

(side note : something futile that I also observed : for the The Most Beautiful Moment In Life pt.1, the concept was wet hair. But right now, it seems like it is the opposite. They all seem to have dry hair. I don’t know if it’s something important but anyway)

The settings are different too. They moved from natural settings (fields, grass, flowers, the ocean) to a more urbain setting. This could be a big metaphor for evolution (how men went from living in the nature to building cities etc…).And that is, how I said in the beginning, the theme of The Most Beautiful Moments In Life mini-albums. The evolution, of youth

THE UNLIKELY DRAGON TAMER pt. I
None of the adults in the family imagined that one of their kids would be crazy enough to follow Charlie’s footsteps as a dragon keeper, least of all gawky Albus Potter who had difficulty tying his shoelaces without tripping. (“I’ll be all right. Lucy made me velcro boots.”) When his apprenticeship acceptance arrived singed and stamped in the post, they finally took him seriously—and bombarded him with questions: did he really want to train dragons? Or was he just running off? Was he unhappy in Britain? His siblings and cousins picked on him, but surely he could tell they were just teasing. Albus laughed; sometimes, they knew so little about him. He liked dragons—well, he liked everything, but dragons were a subset of everything. And it was as simple as that.

Unlikely (pt. 2)

His flight left JFK at an ungodly hour the next morning. He was mostly asleep as he shuffled through the grey pre-dawn mist from the taxi to the terminal, and when he shuffled through the “expedited” security line, and as he shuffled through the line to board his flight to Heathrow.

He flopped down into his seat, jammed his headphones into his ears, and had every intention of being dead to the world for the next eight hours. Sleep was, however, elusive. Finally, a little after the plane reached its cruising altitude, he gave up and dug his phone from his pocket. If he couldn’t catch up on his sleep, at least he could use his time wisely and catch up on answering “important” emails. An eight hour flight might be long enough to make a small dent. Instead, though, of opening his email, and without really fully knowing why himself, he opened his camera roll. The most recent pictures were shots of the morning haze over the city, taken from the window of his hotel room. Before that were a handful he’d taken of his friends he’d met with the night before – it really had been too long since he’d gotten to see them. One of his greatest frustrations was loving so many people and being able to see them so infrequently. But before those were the three dimly-lit pictures of him with a young lady who was spectacularly pretty, he thought, in her own funny way. In the last, they were both beaming at the camera. Before that, she was peering up at him – funny, she hadn’t seemed quite so short the night before – with an expression of quizzical surprise. And in the first, which the girl’s friend had taken a split second before he was ready, he was watching her intently, oblivious to the camera.

Author’s Note: This is for Natalie, the anon with the crises who wanted a fic about meeting Tom. Hope this helps! I know it’s pretty long, but I think there’s actually more to the story. I’ll write the rest if people want it.

The noise was deafening, the crowd was dense, and you would’ve been miserable even if you hadn’t felt ridiculous.

“Kris, why are we here? This isn’t going to work, he isn’t here.”

Your best friend, who was worlds more confident than you even when she wasn’t slightly inebriated, grabbed you by your shoulders and shook you.

“You are such a downer, _______. He’s here somewhere, we just have to find him.”

It had been a grand total of forty-five minutes since a supremely shady rumor started flying across tumblr that your favorite actor had been spotted slipping into a bar on the Upper East Side. In the full minute it took you to realize that you lived on the Upper East Side, Kris had formulated a plan.

“Isn’t that that guy from that movie? The one that you-”

“I just…admire his work, that’s all.”

“…His face is your desktop background.”

“That’s not…I mean-”

“Change. We’re going.”

“We can’t just dash across town because somebody said…I mean, it’s creepy!”

Kris was already tearing through your closet.

“It’s literally like three minutes away.”

“But I have to work tomorrow!”

“So we won’t stay long! We’ll just see if he’s there, and then-”

“Then what? I’m not just going to, like, talk to him.”

Unlikely (pt. 3)

At first, he wasn’t really sure why he kept texting her. It would’ve been just as easy to let it drop, obligation fulfilled, communication over. She would’ve been happy with that. During that flight from New York to London, he thought it was just because he was bored.
