LIVE TRILOGY Episode III: The Wings Tour
Announced to be hold on the 18 and 19 February 2017, the final episode of the live trilogy has already been advertised with a trailer and a poster.
The year of the concert had been discretely revealed in the background video of Tomorrow during the Episode II : The Red Bullet concert held in 2014.
The title of this episode clearly refers Bangtan’s last album but if you look at the symbol above you can also spot the four circles associated with the album surrounding the cross.
Concerning the trailer now.
Contrary to the two previous episodes who were clearly following each other, the Episode III doesn’t show a direct relation with them.
But it’s obviously linked to the WINGS era though.
First the music is a remix of the last song of the album, Interlude : Wings.
References to Blood, Sweat & Tears and the Short Films
For Jungkook we have the swing and the
oral fixation fingers in his mouth.
J-Hope is once again in front of The Pietà. Note that the statue doesn’t have a face, which prove it’s the continuation of Blood, Sweat & Tears where said face exploded.
Taehyung is wearing the same outfit. But contrary to J-Hope it seems his shot happened before BST because here his wings grow and in BST they were cut. Or they grow back in the trailer.
Jin destruction keeps going, the cracks are wider and he even lose his right hand.
There are also references to the Short Films.
Suga is seen near a destroyed piano similar to the one which burned in FIRST LOVE.
Jimin’s shots referenced both BST and his Short Film with the blindfold and the red apple which emerged from the water in the trailer after falling in the liquid in LIE.
RM is surrounded by shattered pieces of mirror. And in REFLECTION the mirror hallway he was in is destroyed.
In one shot we have references to the infamous kiss scene from BST and the liquid mirror shot from AWAKE.
The black matter
In the trailer two scenes show thick black liquid. The first time on Jungkook’s fingers, the second around Jimin. It’s not the first time. Already in I NEED U Japanese version, Rap Monster was seen with his right hand covered with that black paint.
Floating in the sky
Apart from Jin and V, all the members are seen lying on the ground and then slowly floating in the air - like Jungkook in BST.
Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa returns: the butterfly was not dead
After disappearing for all of WINGS era, the infamous insect is back !
They’re seen near Suga and on a Rorschach painting held by Jungkook.
Just saying but Suga and Jungkook were a couple in HYYH.
That is probably my paranoia but I’ll add it anyway. The shot with Jimin in front of the painted wall remind me of J-Hope during his delirium in MAMA. And just saying but the two dancers were also a couple during HYYH. Jimin’s moves are the one from LIE by the way.
The heavy relation between the MV and the trailer keeps from concluding anything, but the fact is: there basically wasn’t a single drop of red in that trailer. But there was green, a lot of green.
So I am sincerely impatient to see what await us in the next works~
