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 ^^).
Aug 2017 – RM – Life updated. Also, very belated translation of Not Today…
Jul 2017 – RM – predebut freestyle updated.
I know I’m slooow…..
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 – Not Today (NEW Aug 2017)
BTS – I like It Pt. 2 (Korean Ver) (NEW July 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 – Life (09) (NEW Aug 2017)
RM – Freestyle 1-4 (predebut 2013) (NEW July 2017)
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…..)
