How does a band that has too many monstrous success choose a song that they can call absolutely special? The biggest boy group in the world, BTS, today talks about the blood, sweat and tears that go into their creations as they contemplate a response.
The South Korean boy group, known for their universally sold dance hits with impressive timing in their moves in MVs like “Fire,” “Not Today,” “Dope,” “Mic Drop,” say they would be a mix between their 2018 song “Idol” and last year’s “ON” when it comes to picking their hardest number.
For the seven-member group, BTS, it would seem like a daunting task to even reduce the number to two, given that they have yet to produce next to nothing that does not mesmerize their ever-growing fan base.
But then RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook tell IANS “the harder the job, the greater the satisfaction.”
“I think the choreography for ON was the most difficult. There were a lot of things we had to pay attention to, including the technical aspects of the choreography and the overall feel of the dance, ”says J-Hope. Other members of BTS, SUGA and V, agree that “ON” is “the most difficult”.
BTS member Jimin, who is the lead and most important vocalist in the dance line, says, “As far as the difficulty level goes, it’s definitely ON. We didn’t perform the song in front of our fans in person, so I really want to show them.
“ON was a song with difficult movements and consumed a lot of stamina,” said BTS member Jung Kook, explaining why this is their most difficult.
RM, however, is undecided between the two – the choice for him could be “Idol” or “ON”. Jin is sure of his answer, although he seems to think differently from his group mates.
“IDOL was the most difficult for us because it’s a song that required constant movement with no interruptions in between,” says the BTS member.
Right now, as their new single “Butter” continues to break records, BTS or Bangtan Sonyeondan are hitting the skies with massive success like no other band has done in recent times in the world, surfing on a wave that few musicians have made in the history of popular music.
In the age of inclusiveness, as the world is constantly on the lookout for new twists and turns in entertainment, the group has struck new appeal with their challenging yet perfectly timed dance skills that are fun to watch and, of course, their music they compose.
What’s the one thing the band keeps in mind when composing music?
BTS member Suga, who along with RM is the lead writer-producer, replies, “Every aspect is important – the trends, the sounds and the lyrics. It seems like a satisfying song only comes out when all the elements fall into place.
It has fallen into place for them every time since 2013 via phenomenal chartbusters which include “Just One Day”, “Run”, “Fake Love”, “Boy with luv”, “Microcosmos”, “Spring Day” which always has carried a message for fans of “self-love” to this voice that will not forget the pain of loss, then their latest release, “Butter” which melted smoothly into all hearts, breaking their own record with 10 million views on YouTube in 13 minutes Upon release.
For BTS, it’s really just ‘start’ every time, for the Bangtan Boys, never stop marveling at themselves and their ARMY fans.
