I figured that since I’m accumulating a number of posts, I should make a directory…. to keep things organized.
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)
Nov 2017 – Between work, life, and catching up with BTS, I’ve been avoiding my own blog like the plague so that I don’t have to feel guilty about not updating it/replying to comments. ^^ Someday, I’ll get my life in order.
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.
BTS – Pied Piper (NEW Sept 2017)
BTS – Go Go (NEW Sept 2017)
BTS – Mic Drop (NEW Sept 2017)
BTS – Spring Day
probably not all that useful for the lyrics which are straight forward anyway..
BTS – f(x) = Sexy Math Lyrics
and songs using “hae” word play, containing parts of:
Always, 2!3!, War of Hormone, Voice, and Favorite Girl.
BTS – Cyper Pt. 2 – Triptych
my favourite “onion” song – endless peeling layers of meaning.
BTS – Baepsae/Parrotbill
and some comment about “spoons” in the song “Fire.”
RM Mixtape / Rap Monster other works
RM- Do You (02)
and… kind of a book review as well.
Agust D Mixtape /Suga
Rap Monster Tibits
mostly compilation of things I found interesting… will likely add over time.
I feel like my grammar is dying a slow death… as I only have to write things in point form at work.
Trying to get Mr. muish to like BTS.
He saw the picture of RapMon as Gudetama and said… “She’s cute. She looks like Jennifer Lawrence when she smiles!”
He also likes the Hip-Hop Monster figures, especially the Jin one…..
And he likes Suga with hedgehogs on his head…
Mmmm…. why do I get the feeling…that he likes plushies, rather than BTS? (He actually has a large collection of plushies, and I had to give him a life-sized sheep plushie in exchange for a diamond ring, to get him to marry me…. lol… That makes him sound perverted. He really is not…all that much…..)
