Theyve just released their latest album, and, frankly, everyone is loving it.
But BTSs Love Yourself: Tear has poignant meaning behind it.
The K-Pop group made it a mission to learn how to love themselves in a world where the pressures of social media and celebrity make it a constant battle to achieve perfection.
The boys explained that there was some pressure to come up with new music, saying its hard as they feel like they have to compare themselves to other stars.
Its really hard for [us] – especially this time – because we always see other people on social media, Instagram and Twitter, so we always compare ourselves to other people.
Addressing what the meaning behind this eagerly-awaited LP is, the band told People: We think this album, this whole performance, is us telling them “lets find a way to love ourselves together.” So, we want to find a way together with our fans.
Can we all just take a moment to think about how lovely that really is? Army, youve got to be proud of these boys.
If you didnt know theyre gearing up to perform the albums first single at the Billboard awards tomorrow.
Its the first time theyll perform Fake Love on TV. RM spoke Billboard about what they have in store for their performance, and revealed there was a secret meaning behind the choreography.
He said: Theres an old saying, like, “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”
We put that saying in the main part of our choreography. So its going to be an interesting point if you find this old saying in our choreography. Itll be more powerful than ever.
The music video for their track dropped today and reveals the seven members putting on a show of sharp dance moves, and imitating the Japanese Three Wise Monkeys maxim.
