    First, let me show you my favorite part of the song...



    I like the beat, most of BTS' beats never fail to fit my musical taste... In the teaser the song seemed to have a Chinese type of beat and i thought that the song as a whole sounded very different than in the teaser and i've seen many people brag about that as well, i dislike that the "oh oh oh oh" part is overused in the song, the beat is hype, the singing is hype and that part makes the song even more hype so it started sounding a little messy to me, other than that, i liked the lyrics, they're meaningful and true, for the rap... The rap in Fake Love had a bigger impact on me, i'm indifferent about the rap in this song, i like the background vocals of Jimin, they add a special taste to the song, compared to their previous cb song Fake Love, i'd say i liked Fake Love much better, i don't like this song completely but i feel like it'll grow on me with time.

    That was my review aka opinion of the song, this is my personal opinion, some may agree to all or some of my points and some may disagree.​

    This style is not exactly what I prefer. Like fire, not today, etc, its fun yes but I won't listen to it very often since I prefer songs that sound sentimental, emotional... Thats not to say I don't like it. Like Fire and Not Today, I DO like the songs but its not a song I would listen to all the time like I would with Spring Day. Spring Day is queen.

    How would you know it will grow on your later? Music shouldn't be an equivalent to a rash.

    Firstly I like the fact they tried to incorporate african beats with a traditional korean sound but....it kind of sounds all over the place mainly the rap sections. Maybe I think that because it isn't my style but who knows. I do like the chorus tho.

    It’s equivalent to a seed. They planted a “meaningless” seed but the more you listen to it (water it) it grows and you love it

    It’s a metaphor, like how you asked if music is a rash. Ofc it’s imaginary

    I don't search out imaginary plants when I can see and feel real ones.

    I like most of BTS's work but this is pure trash, both the mv and the song. I just watched 'I need u' then watch 'idol' and realized how perfectly the old bts fit my taste. Their tragic attempts to be funny or appearing to have fun make me cringe. Jimin's highnote ripped my ears off.



    Imma get attacked if I say this in the kpop section.

    You completely missed the point but okay
    If you see music as a rash, then just don’t listen to it, there’s nothing more to that, I just see things differently

    I don't know, the more I listen to Idol the less I like it. I'm not dissing the album, there are some really nice b-sides on there, but Idol...

    My first impression was that I don't like the rap at the beginning and that opinion hasn't changed. It just sounds really awkward, and tbh they're starting to sound a bit like a broken record. They're quickly moving from 'badass rappers' to petulant children.

    The chorus is catchy, but very reminiscent of Not Today and I can only assume that the big dance sequence in the mv is meant to parody Not Today, otherwise they're in desperate need of some new ideas. The oh oh oh bit at the end sounds a bit too much like the ending to a Bigbang song as well.

    There are parts of the song that I don't mind, but the more I listen to it as a whole, the more it sounds like some kind of superficial rehash.

    I'll be listening to other songs on the album but I really don't think I'll bother with Idol any more.

    Personally to me, BST > NOT TODAY > FAKE LOVE > SPRING DAY > IDOL > DNA
