Heads up ARMYs, BTS (방탄소년단) is burning up fire!
Big Hit Entertainement’s Bangtan Boys are back with their most intense comeback track yet. “Fire” (불타오르네) is the 3rd song to complete boys’ year-long trilogy, “The Most Beautiful Moment In Life” (화양연화), alongside “I Need U” and “RUN”. The song was released on 1st May and it has already topped all the South Korean music charts!
Unlike the first 2 slower songs from the trilogy, “Fire” is an upbeat electronic dance track that combines trap percussions and sick beat drops. The song also features amazing rap sections, group chants, and a catchy chorus.
With over 3 million views on YouTube in just 2 days, the group’s music video starts off with the boys meeting at an empty lot behind a building, and their hit song “DOPE” (쩔어) can be heard playing in the background. A suspicious hooded man is seen walking towards them, moving in to shake hands with member Suga, before setting himself on fire.
Suga then starts the music by saying, “Its burning up in here”.
The music video actually reminds us a lot of BIGBANG for some reason. The colourful outfits, red-light settings, car crashing, fire burnings, and so on bear heavy resemblances to many of the YG groups’ music video styles.
But one thing that definitely screams BTS is the choreography. The dance moves were intense, brilliantly synchronised, and sick! The new choreography makes “DOPE” look like baby steps.

“The Most Beautiful Moment In Life Pt.3 – Young Forever” will consists of 2 CDs with 23 songs including “Butterfly”, “I Need U”, and “RUN”. The album is currently available on Apple iTunes.
