BTS☆STYLE VOL.16: A WARNING TO YOUR LOVER……A NEW SONG ABOUT THE FEELINGS OF A MAN FRUSTRATED WITH LOVE
BTS’ previous work “BOY IN LUV” reached 4th in the Weekly Single Ranking! Now, with even more vigor, the South Korean boys group Bangtan Sonyeondan is releasing their long-awaited 3rd Japanese single “Danger-Japanese Ver.-” With how much their previous release gained popularity, this time it’s a comeback! We were told about their latest work “Danger-Japanese Ver.-” and we’re drawn to BTS’ appeal even more!
▮The highlight of the new song’s performance is the “high blood pressure dance”
――BTS’ 3rd Japanese single “Danger-Japanese Ver.-” really gives the impression of a dangerous man, with an intense hip hop number unique to BTS.
JIN : In Korean, you say “a man among men” as “Sangnamja” but in “Danger-Japanese Ver.-”, the meaning of “Sangnamja” differs a bit. “Even though I really love you, why don’t you love me back?” It’s a song showing the resentment of a man facing a bad relationship.
V : A warning to your lover!
――This work is not directed towards adults, but rather a warning towards your lover?
V : Yes, that’s right!
――“Danger” was released in August as a part of your first full album “DARK&WILD” and was newly recorded in Japan. How did the recording go?
SUGA : “Danger” Korean version was recorded in America. For “Danger-Japanese Ver.-”, we had KM-MARKIT (having helped us with our previous work) help write the Japanese lyrics. He gave us a lot of advice so we were able to achieve a fun recording.
――This has become the third time recording in Japanese. Are you growing accustomed to it?
All : (immediate reply) No (laughs).
JIMIN : To tell you the truth, up until now this song was the hardest in regards to pronounciation.
All : Yes, it’s true.
――Which part was especially difficult?
J-HOPE : Naturally, Korean and Japanese pronunciation differ but,
while making the best of my Korean accent, expressing in Japanese was really difficult.
JIN : Particularly, I struggled at the “mou kotaerarenai” part. Up until now, we’ve been singing in Korean, and so we’ve held a responsibility to uphold a certain image and we’re able to match the finer details of the language closely, but since it’s really different this time, if you don’t remember the small nuances/details, you’re in trouble.
JUNG KOOK : Rapping the “kiku kedo” part of “kiku kedo hibikanai shinzou ni” was especially hard. Continue reading “[Interview/Trans] BTS ☆ Style Vol. 16 at Oricon Style ”
