Not only was it appreciated for the performance and choreography, but BTS was also praised for the songs with depth in both meaning and artistry.
BTS is one of the Korean groups that is always concerned with the depth of the music they create. The members always send their feelings and emotions into their songs as well as bring a sense of relief to themselves and the audience who love music.
Jin released his solo song “Abyss” on his birthday last year. Like many of Jin’s solo songs, ‘Abyss’ carries a deep and personal meaning. In particular, he also emphasized the feeling of fear and despair that everyone has once experienced: “Do I deserve to be in the center of attention and be praised when there are so many people who love music more than me, who are more talented than me?”
The lyrics of this song express the male singer’s feelings when the outbreak of the epidemic has made a part of his life completely changed.
“Through ‘Abyss’, Jin wanted to talk about the mental impact of the epidemic on artists like BTS. At the same time, the song expresses the artists’ hope for a brighter world, through creative expressions that both artists and listeners can feel the comfort in their hearts.” – Weverse’s interview
Not only “Abyss”, in the song “Blue & Gray” in the BE album, BTS also uses special colors to describe the emotions of their hearts. A psychiatrist named Oh Jin Seung believed that, out of all the mechanisms of dealing with stress, BTS members seemed to use art to express the difficulties they have faced.
This is also the reason why V has named the sadness, insecurity and chaos in the song – “Blue & Gray.”
Not only understanding, but BTS also tries to express the common feelings of them and many others through the songs they write. Therefore, many people can sympathize with BTS’s songs. On the other hand, these songs also give hope to everyone who is facing difficulties or mental illness.
Many BTS songs aim for deeper content, not just a catchy song or easy to become trends. They continue to go on the path of exploring the harmony between music, art and soul. Perhaps because of this direction, many people love BTS and admire the creative products bearing the personal mark of 7 boys.
