This section is to see if I can explain some of the artistic allusions/cultural references/slangs, etc. in BTS songs…. as I feel like simple translation often does not do them enough justice.
The posts are prone to small edits over time (It’s not my fault that BTS has lyrics that are so complicated that I can’t get all the meanings on first attempt ^^).
NOTICE: For the people who would like to use my posts to translate into other languages, please try to translate directly from Korean to your language (as translating translated lyrics is probably not accurate). Feel free to use the additional ramblings I’ve added to lyrics but beware that I am often editing/correcting myself over time to try to be more accurate.
Please do not use my non-lyric-related ramblings (eg. the tibits, etc)
This is a bit of a lazy low-stress blog…
To see the posts in the order of most recently posted, you can read them under BTS tag.
Short Translation Requests
If you just have few short lines that you would like clarified semi-quickly (relatively speaking compared to full posts), please post them here.
