T/N: According to the election law in Korea, the voting age starts at 19 (American age), so those who are under 19 years old are not allowed to vote nor participate in election campaigns in any way (online, offline, social networks, etc). It is against the law. Therefore, there was a legislation that was proposed to lower the voting age from 19 to 18 in 2012, to allow minors to join the election campaign so that they can express their political opinions but the proposal was dismissed. The main idea of Rap Monster’s rap is that you should voice out your opinions and vote.

 

Bangtan Boys, I’m RAP MONSTER
and I’m 19 I got no rights to vote.
You know the future is mine too, leggo!

Beginning December 19th the clock starts winding in Korea.
It’s the day the whole country uses their “magic”.
It comes out from the tip of your hands, and then all the results are in.
However, I think many of you still don’t know yet.
The power that you and I possess.
In order to not elect the opponent, we continue campaigning.
Calling ourselves a nation is wrong when you’re being apathetic.
(21st century Schizoid Man)

30 years ago some would do anything to give in that one vote,
but now you avoid it even though they’re offering things to get you to vote?
(Are they stupid?) Your vote is worth 30000 won ($29-30 USD)
that’s how much your total tax is worth for these 5 years specifically.
So giving up your vote isn’t making things neutral. It’s just an undeclared vote.
Go vote or do something, before you make any blames and criticisms.
It’s like the college entrance exams (why?)
because it all depends on how you do.
If you don’t pick something then don’t expect anything significant.
During the 5 years, will you note how much weight that one paper holds?
Voice Of The Everybody, just vote
If you want to voice out your opinions, then go ahead by voting.
The power that you and I possess.
In order to not elect the opponent, we continue campaigning.
Calling ourselves a nation is wrong when you’re being apathetic.
Vote is yours, but future is ours.

VOTE, or just SHUT UP
