BTS Discuss Their Fear of Failure in Hidden Track

"That desert I was once afraid of became an ocean from our blood sweat and tears"


BTS always has moving lyrics, but I really connected with the words in their hidden track SEA (thank you @sinisterbangel for posting it!)

In the song they talk about how when they started out it seemed dismal. They were a small company, they sounded and looked different, and there were endless hard times.

Then, by their hard work, literally their blood sweat and tears, they turned the desert of failure into an ocean of success.

Listen here:

It's really powerful, especially if you're going through a hard time.


Thank you as always, BTS.

Thank you for tagging me! Before the song started, I was already so touched and emotional before anyone started singing. But then later seeing the lyrics of what you put up there on top (reading it when listening to the song) I got even more emotional. And then my UB Namjoon singing in English got me more lol. The whole song just got to me. I couldn't hold back my tears.
i loved the sound of the song but you're totally right, the lyrics made is SO much more meaningful and touching :)
@kpopandkimchi I love all their songs, but there are certain songs that hit me hard, and this was one of them. I knew I would cry and I was right lmao.
this song is up there with their track "Tomorrow" in terms of my deep feels.
I'm not ready for this song! It will be too much! I don't think I can handle it!! 😭😭😭💞💞💞💞💞

Jail Time for Big Hit Blackmailer + Calls for Reported to Resign!
So, first part of the controversy is this: A CEO was sentenced to one year in prison for "blackmailing Big Hit Entertainment, threatening to reveal information to the public about alleged illegal marketing by the agency." Basically, Big Hit used a company 2 years ago to do marketing for them, then suddenly the company (that was financially struggling) came back and said they were going to release this ~secret~ about Big Hit unless they paid them a lot of money (approximately $291,000) Big Hit was like, wtf, and they said they have nothing to hide (the 'secret' was related to illegal marketing allegedly) They said: “Big Hit has nothing to hide, so as soon as we became aware of the situation, we filed a report with the police and actively cooperated with investigations.” “If Big Hit’s reputation ends up being damaged by these claims and reports, despite the our immediate handling of the situation by filing a report and cooperating with police, then there will be no entertainment agency in the future that can take appropriate measures in the face of blackmail.” “We’re very sorry to the BTS members and ARMY for the alarm that was caused with this issue. We will do everything we can and carefully manage our business partners and contractors to prevent something like this from ever happening again.” The CEO was found guilty for blackmail and was sentenced to a year in jail. Now, for the second part of the controvery: There is one reporter, Jeon Won, who works for a site called xsports who hates BTS with a passion. She heard the report about the marketing company finding "illegal marketing practices" and posted about how that is PROOF that BTS bought their Billboard award and that they should return it, that BTS are cheaters. *eye roll* Here's what she wrote: “With the accusations of illegal marketing practices, BTS’ eligibility for the ‘Top Social Artist’ award comes to suspicion. The winner of the award is determined by the hashtag votes and BTS has received more than 300 million. However, some netizens are now questioning the legitimacy. If the marketing took place with the use of part-time employees (to increase votes), then it’ll be fair for BTS to return the trophy.” You can hear her voice here from a press conference. She's the same reporter who clamined that BTS cheated on winning awards on music shows and she also announced one of their comeback dates before Big Hit did (which is a shitty move as a reporter). Now #엑스포츠_전원기자_사과해 (XSports_ReporterJeongWon_Apologize!) is trending WORLDWIDE. Since the "illegal marketing practices" were found to be lies, that means her only evidence that the Billboard Awards were bought is not true people want her to apologize but so far all that has happened is her article has ~disappeared~ Glad BTS won this round but jeez, when will people learn?!
BTS에 결국 빗장 푼 '그래미'…다시 한번 K팝 새 역사
CBS노컷뉴스 김수정 기자 제63회 그래미 어워드 후보 발표 '베스트 팝 듀오/그룹 퍼포먼스' 노미네이트 미국 3대 음악상 후보에 전부 지명 그룹 방탄소년단 (사진=빅히트엔터테인먼트 제공) 그룹 방탄소년단(BTS)이 한국 가수 최초로 그래미 어워드(Grammy Awards) 후보에 이름을 올렸다. 미국 레코드 예술과학 아카데미(NARAS)는 25일 새벽(한국 시간) 라이브 스트리밍을 통해 '제63회 그래미 어워드' 후보를 발표했다. 방탄소년단은 '다이너마이트'(Dynamite)로 '베스트 팝 듀오/그룹 퍼포먼스'(BEST POP DUO/GROUP PERFORMANCE) 부문 후보에 이름을 올렸다. 방탄소년단은 '빌보드 뮤직 어워드'(BBMA), '아메리칸 뮤직 어워드'(AMAs)에 이어 '그래미 어워드' 후보에 오르면서 미국의 3대 음악 시상식 후보에 전부 지명되는 영광의 주인공이 됐다. 미국 '피플'지가 표현한 대로, '현재 가장 인기 있는 보이그룹'으로 꼽히는 방탄소년단의 올 한 해 활약은 대단했다. 코로나19의 장기화 속에서도 방탄소년단은 지난 2월 정규 4집 '맵 오브 더 솔 : 7'(MAP OF THE SOUL : 7)을 발매했다. 이 앨범은 발매 첫날 판매량만 213만 장에 달했으며, 빌보드 메인 앨범 차트인 '빌보드 200'에서 1위를 기록했다. 지난 8월 공개한 방탄소년단의 첫 번째 영어 싱글 '다이너마이트'도 큰 사랑을 받았다. 코로나19로 모두가 힘든 시기에 활력을 불어넣고자 하는 방탄소년단의 마음이 담긴 밝고 경쾌한 디스코 '다이너마이트'는 빌보드 메인 싱글 차트 '핫 100'에서 1위에 올랐다. 이로써 방탄소년단은 빌보드의 양대 차트 '빌보드 200'과 '핫 100'에서 모두 1위를 기록한 최초의 한국 가수가 됐다. 지난 20일 전 세계에 공개한 새 앨범 '비'(BE) 디럭스 에디션도 선전 중이다. '비'는 첫날 판매량만 200만 장에 달했고, 타이틀곡 '라이프 고즈 온'(Life Goes On) 뮤직비디오는 공개 사흘 만에 1억 뷰를 넘겼다. 방탄소년단은 지난달 열린 '2020 빌보드 뮤직 어워드'에서 '톱 소셜 아티스트' 상을 받았다. 2017년부터 이 상은 4년 연속 방탄소년단 차지였다. 지난 22일(현지 시간) 열린 '제48회 아메리칸 뮤직 어워드'에서도 수상 행진은 계속됐다. 방탄소년단은 3년 연속 '페이보릿 소셜 아티스트' 상을, 2년 연속 '페이보릿 듀오/그룹-팝/록' 상을 받았다. 최근 3~4년 전부터 시상식에 초대해 특급 대우를 하고 공식 후보로 지명해 상을 준 '빌보드 뮤직 어워드', '아메리칸 뮤직 어워드'와 달리 '그래미 어워드'는 방탄소년단을 시상식 '후보'로 올리지 않았다. 지난해 2월 열린 '제61회 그래미 어워드'에서는 시상자로, 올해 1월 열린 '제62회 그래미 어워드'에서는 공연자로 초대받은 바 있다. 물론 이 역시 모두 한국 가수로는 최초였다. (사진=그래미 어워드 공식 페이스북) 지난해 11월 '제62회 그래미 어워드'가 공개한 84개 부문 후보 명단에 방탄소년단이 빠진 것을 두고 그래미 어워드의 보수성과 폐쇄성이 지적된 바 있다. 꾸준히 그래미 어워드 후보 지명과 수상을 바란다고 밝혀 온 방탄소년단은, 마침내 그래미 후보로 선정됐다. 앞서 미국 연예 매체 '버라이어티'는 "지금까지 한 번도 후보로 지명된 적 없는 방탄소년단이 '다이너마이트'를 발매했기에 상황은 달라질 수도 있다"라고 전망한 바 있다. 전문가들은 그래미가 방탄소년단의 성과와 활약을 인정한 결과라고 바라봤다. 김도헌 대중음악평론가는 "이미 조건 자체는 다 갖춰져 있다고 생각한다. 연초에는 앨범으로, 중반에는 싱글로 빌보드 차트 1위를 기록하지 않았나. 후보 지명이 된 것만으로 사실상 엄청난 성과이고, 수상을 한다면 더욱 주목할 만한, 역사에 남을 만한 일이라는 생각이 든다"라고 말했다. 정민재 대중음악평론가는 "(이번 후보 지명으로) 방탄소년단이 이전보다 훨씬 눈에 띄는 성과를 냈다, 음악적으로도 이전보다 더 얘기할 것이 많은 작품을 냈다는 평가로 볼 수 있을 것 같다. 그래미 시상식 시청률이 계속 떨어지는 추세인 만큼 흥행 요소가 필요한데, 화제의 중심에 있는 방탄소년단을 아예 무시할 수는 없었을 것"이라고 밝혔다. 이대화 음악 저널리스트는 "K팝이 지금 가장 핫한 흐름 중 하나라는 것을 그래미가 인정한 것이다. 그리고 그것이 2020년을 결산하는 자리에 빠져선 안 될 정도로 중요한 흐름이라고 판단한 것"이라고 밝혔다. 전문가들은 방탄소년단이 그래미 후보에 포함된 것을 그래미의 '다양성 확보' 노력으로 해석하기도 했다. 이 저널리스트는 "그래미는 최근 들어 여성과 흑인을 차별한다는 비판에 직면하고 있다. 선정위원단이 온통 백인 위주라는 비판을 수용해 위원단 구성을 다양하게 하려고 노력 중이다. 아시아 가수가 빌보드 1위에 오른 만큼, (방탄소년단 후보 지명은) 그래미의 다양성을 보여줄 좋은 기회라고 생각했을 것"이라고 말했다. 정 평론가 역시 "과거 카니예 웨스트부터 켄드릭 라마, 비욘세 등이 홀대받는 등 그래미가 흑인음악을 평가절하하는 경향이 분명히 있었다. 아리아나 그란데, 드레이크 등 여러 가수가 공개적으로 비판하면서 그래미의 위상과 위신이 예전 같지 않아진 것도 사실이다. 여러 가지 변화의 모습을 보일 필요가 있었을 것으로 판단한다"라고 전했다. 1959년부터 열리기 시작한 '그래미 어워드'는 전 세계에서 가장 권위 있는 음악 시상식이다. 영화의 아카데미상, TV의 에미상, 무대 공연의 토니상과 함께 예술 분야에서 가장 유명하고 영향력이 큰 상으로 꼽힌다. 수상자는 차트 순위, 앨범 판매량 등 수치보다는 미국 음악계 현직 종사자로 구성된 미국 레코드 예술과학 아카데미 회원들 투표로 결정된다. '제63회 그래미 어워드'는 내년 1월 31일(현지 시간) 개최된다. 방탄소년단이 올해 8월 21일 전 세계에 공개한 싱글 '다이너마이트'는 빌보드 메인 싱글 차트 '핫 100'에서 1위로 데뷔했고 통산 3번의 1위를 기록했다. (사진=빌보드 공식 트위터)

JH - Finding Myself Ch.1
=== BTS Fan Fic Project: https://vin.gl/p/2881201?wsrc=link Finding Myself Collection: https://www.vingle.net/collections/6316481 === === I sat there in the middle of this foreign room, surrounded by a few open boxes labeled with what might be contained in them. I looked down and stared at my hand as I fiddled with the jewelry in in it. My vision began to lose focus as I continued to look down. “Euna!” A female voice called out from downstairs. I blinked my eyes a few times, releasing myself from my trance and remembering where I was. I deeply inhaled and exhaled as I placed the jewelry back into my pocket. Standing up, I walked towards the sound of the voice. “Yes?” I responded back. “Your father won’t be home until dinner.” She said with her back still facing me. I watched her carefully unpacking the glassware into the cabinets. After putting away the last plate, she turned around and looked at me. “Have you unpacked everything?” I scratched the back of my head and avoided her gaze. I couldn’t tell her that I was just sitting in the middle of my room for the past two hours. I could hear her sigh as she moved away from her spot. “It’s been a long month,” she said as she walked closer to me. “You don’t have to join us for dinner tonight.” She placed a hand on the upper section of my back, her thumb slightly rubbing itself back and forth against the fabric of my shirt. “Just rest. You will have another long day at school tomorrow. Your uniform will be hanging behind your room door once you wake up in the morning.” My mother gently pushed me away, back towards the stairs. I weakly smiled back at her in response and walked back to my room. As soon as I entered my room, I quietly closed the door behind me and threw myself onto my bed. I grabbed the nearest pillow and held it close to my body as I curled up while burying my face into its soft exterior. I steady my breathing while trying to hold back the tears that threatens to leave the corners of my eyes. “It indeed has been a very long month,” I mumbled into the pillow. Minutes slowly passed before I found myself fast asleep. ~ “I’m sorry…” I immediately shot up from my bed, breathing heavily as cold sweat rolled itself down the side of my face. I franticly looked around the dark room, scared and afraid. I tightly held the pillow that was close to me and closed my eyes. After a few minutes, I realized where I was and managed to calm myself down. Looking for my phone, I stood up with my pillow still pressed against my chest and picked up my phone from the top of an unopened box. It’s 5:34AM, I read to myself while looking at its screen. Clutching on to my phone, I crouched down and buried my face into my pillow again. “This is going to be another long week,” I told myself. I was not looking forward to going back to school again. After getting ready from taking a long shower, I made both breakfast and lunch for myself and my parents before heading out. I took out my phone and allowed the music to blast my eardrums as I placed the earpieces in my ears, drowning out any sound around me. I kept my eyes on the ground, avoiding any sort of eye contact as I walked towards the school. Although muffled, I could hear someone call out behind me. Believing that it wasn’t for me, I kept walking until I heard a loud horn through the sound of my music. It all happened so fast. I felt someone forcefully pulling on my left arm, causing me to turn around and lose my balance. I quickly closed my eyes, expecting to be met with cement. But instead of embracing the hard ground, I found myself in the grasp of someone’s arms. “Wow! That was close!” His low, raspy voice tickled my eardrums instead of the sound of my music. “Are you alright?” I leaned back a little as he gently pushed me away from his body. The first thing I noticed were his soft, gentle eyes. I couldn’t help but stare at them until he spoke up again. “Are you alright?” He asked again. “The crosswalk was still red when you were crossing the street.” I blinked a few times and hastily stood up from where I was. Making sure I had everything, I ducked my head down and quickly walked away in embarrassment. I really hope I don’t see him again, I thought to myself as I rushed towards the school grounds. ~ “Class, this is Park Euna and she will be with us for the rest of the school year. Please help her if she has any questions or has any difficulties adjusting to our school.” Ms. Goh, a gentle looking lady who appeared to be in her late forties to early fifties, introduced me to my new classroom. Directing me towards my new seat, I sat down at the center desk in the row closest to the hallways. As I was taking out my pencil case and notebook, I heard someone whispering close behind me. “You know, you still didn’t answer my question,” the same raspy voice said to me. I turned around and came face-to-face with the owner of the voice. === Next Chapter: https://vin.gl/p/3475178?wsrc=link === ❤️BANGTAN ARMY TEAM❤️ @Yugykookie97 @Mochiroon @MelissaGarza ❤️ARMY TAGLIST❤️ @amandamuska  @blessowmwago @BoyGroupKpop @Bxbybri @CleafeMaeObina @coolwolf13 @dalenalw @echoxsoul  @gabstar143  @Gracebug @HannahC19 @herreraletecia  @HomegirlG  @ifitnessvn @Ilovephases @izzybell1202 @jennyfer1111r1 @JJiBin @jiminiebae @jkenshayla @jungkookieeeee @Just2BLoved @kaylawalker929  @kaylenne956 @krissynormam @kpopfan88 @Kyla05 @MelissaGarza @Mochiroon @Nyxxonn @PANDABTS @QueenPandaBunny @rebeccariley52 @rodrickagardne @Rose2demhaters @samcorsam @simpsonsamantha @Shelbeigh19 @shellyfuentes70 @soobak @Starbell808 @szewwy @Taekookimonster  @Tiffiedannie @wolfyplayzyv @YourHentaiWaifu @yukigintokie     let me know if you want to be apart of the ARMY taglist
