Music Monday|BTS – Lights

Hello my lovely BAYOG Fam! It’s Monday, so here’s another Music Monday post! Honestly, this period of time is just….not good. My mind and heart has been overwhelmed with alot of things. It’s been pretty heavy. I also know that I’m not the only one dealing with a heavy mind and heart. So I thought I’d post something uplifting that would bring some comfort. So today’s a Japanese track by BTS. Y’all already know I’m [BTS trash]… #BTSARMYLife You can check out my previous Music Monday posts [here].

I won’t go too much into BTS’ background cuz you all already know I’m [BTS Trash]. I’ve brought them up [plenty] of [times]. BTS is huuuuuge, and definitely cemented K-Pop’s mainstream status in the west. Everyone has heard of them now. However, I’ll still drop some quick info. BTS is a 7 member group that consists of: RM (Kim Namjoon), Jin (Kim Seokjin), Suga (Min Yoongi), J-Hope (Jung Hoseok), Jimin (Park Jimin), V (Kim Taehyung), and Jungkook (Jeon Jungkook). They’re under Big Hit Entertainment and were produced by producer and Big Hit Entertainment founder Bang Sihyuk (aka “Hitman” Bang or Bang PD). Debuting in 2013, they started as underdogs from a small company. They had a tough journey and often faced alot of criticism and ridicule. Namjoon and Yoongi used to be talented underground rappers and were called “sellouts” for choosing to become idols. They gained major attention and popularity thanks to their music as well as the genuine dedication and love towards their fans, ARMY. Thanks to that, they’re now globally known and loved. They’re literally the #1 in demand K-Pop act.

Artist: 방탄소년단 BTS
Album: Lights/Boy With Luv
Year: 2019
Genre: J-Pop, Electropop, K-Pop*
Language: Japanese

*BTS is a K-Pop group

Anyways, today’s track is “Lights”. It’s one of their Japanese tracks from their 2019 Lights/Boy With Luv single. The single includes 3 songs. It includes “Lights”, as well as the Japanese versions of their previous hits [Boy With Luv (feat. Halsey)] and [Idol]. The Japanese versions of [Boy With Luv] and [Idol] also appear on their 2020 Japanese album [Map of the Soul: 7 ~The Journey~].

You can find the Lights/Boy With Luv Japanese single on Spotify, here:

LIGHTS

I’ll be honest, this music video isn’t exactly my favorite BTS MV. However, it’s still done really well. It’s also been really fun to read theories on the music video and song, and how it all ties to the BTS Universe. For all you normies, there’s a fictional BTS Universe. There’s an actual story, as seen in the [Save Me webtoon]. This universe spans across all the music videos, the webtoon, some books, and other things. I believe this video is actually connected to the “Boy With Luv” MV, in reference to the movie theater that appeared in that MV.

However, I absolutely love the song. It’s not a dance track. Rather it’s an electropop song that kind of has that soft and warm/comforting feeling. I’m sure this song was more personally how the members view each other and ARMY. However, in general it’s a song that talks about when you feel helpless and in the darkness. However, there’s a light from the people who care about you. They’re your light. However, you’re their light too. We’re together and can light the darkness together. That’s the basic message anyway. I honestly really relate to this song. Sometimes you just feel like shit. You just feel utterly helpless and alone. However, there are people who care about us. There are people who are there for us. We often forget that our existence is like that for them too. It’s also okay to feel our flaws. After all, no one is perfect. We’re all growing and learning. It’s okay to be yourself, and it’s alright to show some weakness. You can check out the full lyric translations [here].

Yeah I believe that things will change
No one is perfect
Even this moment has its own meaning
And we are connected by sound, woah

BTS|Lights|Translation by [Genius]

I’m breaking down I can see there’s light inside
Dawn will come to the darkest of nights

Overcome, even the future
We won’t stop from now on
Decide for yourself what it means to be happy
Every day, take a step to grow up

BTS|Lights|Translation by [Genius]

But it’s okay sometimes
To show weakness
It’s okay to be you
Don’t lie to yourself any more
Everything connects by sound, woah

When I close my eyes
In the darkness, your light woah
Lights the way for me
We can walk forward without fear, you & I woah


You’re my light, you’re my light
Always shine into my heart
You’re my light, you’re my light
No matter how far apart we are
Your light shines on me

Anyways, I hope y’all enjoyed the song! I know this was a super quick post. Hence why I have 2 Music Monday posts for today! I hope you find your light and remember that you’re someone else’s light. I know, things are pretty shit right now. I hope the darkness is lifted. I hope you’re all well. I also want to say thank you to everyone who’s been there for me whenever I was struggling. Thank you, truly. I love you and appreciate everything you are and all that you’ve done. Please stay safe and take care of yourselves~

Take care y’all. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. All jokes and fun aside…please, please, please, pleaaaase always wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask! I’m serious. Please take COVID-19 seriously. It truly is a matter of life and death. It’s something that needs to be taken seriously. It’s not just about the death of if you or someone you know gets it, but it also heavily affects those left behind. There are also aftereffects for those who are able to get through COVID-19. Be responsible. Be safe. Take care y’all. Have a wonderful day.


BLACK LIVES MATTER

This is a difficult, but necessary matter to address. I’m not good at putting things into words, so I apologize. We all know the matter regarding the unjust murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many others. The current Black Lives Matter protests are being covered globally. I’ve even seen it being covered daily by the Thai news. Racism is a very real thing. Being Asian, I’ve personally encountered bullshit racism on a daily basis. So I can relate and understand the struggles. However, I’m also aware of how much more difficult and blatant it is for black POC. AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation. Make sure to have those conversations. Aside from donating, I had several conversations with my family. I explained things to my parents, especially since some news stories were being reported inaccurately. I was afraid it’d be a bit difficult. However, as fellow POC and human beings, it was a necessary conversation. My parents and grandma understand, and now stand on the same page regarding BLM as well. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
