ARMYs (as fans of BTS are lovingly known), prepare to hyperventilate! Your beloved boys from BTS are back again, this time with a new music video!
After teasing fans with multiple teasers images, Big Hit Entertainment has finally released the music video for “Dope (쩔어)” (which can also be translated to “Sick”), the follow-up track to BTS’ “I Need U”.
The music video for “Dope (쩔어)” was highly anticipated by fans and non-fans alike, as Big Hit Entertainment started teasing fans 2 weeks before the MV was scheduled to release. The teaser photos, which were simultaneously uploaded to their official Facebook and Twitter pages, illustrated the members from BTS personifying various roles through their individual images.
The first batch of teaser photos, which were uploaded on 14th June, portrayed leader Rap Monster in full military wear. The next batch of teaser photos were uploaded the next day, this time featuring member Suga in another military uniform. Individual photos of the remainder members were subsequently released daily from 16th June till 20th June. J-Hope was depicted as a biker, Jin was depicted as a doctor, Jungkook was depicted as a police officer, V was depicted as a detective, and lastly, Jimin was depicted as a forensic analyst.
Take a look at the teaser photos here:
In “Dope (쩔어)”, BTS belted and rapped about working hard to achieve their dreams while their peers were out “playing in the club”. The song brought them back to their roots, as they first exploded into the K-pop scene by singing about societal problems and expectations.
In true BTS style, the music video featured powerful raps, catchy melodies, and also energetic dance moves that will have you nodding and dancing along to it. With a seductive introduction by Rap Monster, the video hooks you in as soon as Jungkook appears with his powerful voice and hypnotic dance moves.
“I Need U” and “Dope (쩔어) are both included in BTS’ 3rd extended play, “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life – Part 1”. The album is currently available in both online and physical stores.
