BTS is such a phenomenon these days. Almost each day guarantees the entry of a new ARMY into the fandom. BTS is known for many things – their message, their looks, their sense of style, their playfulness, their sincerity, and much more. But what draws ARMY’s the most to BTS is their music. Ask any ARMY, and they’ll be sure to tell you that they first saw the group through one of their MV’s or music videos.
MV’s or Music Videos are like a pilot episode for their entrance into the series called Fandom. And believe me, it is as pivotal as any pilot episode ever released. Whenever ARMY’s see a new baby ARMY, the first thing they ask them is what their first MV was and which was their most liked MV.
When ARMY’s see MV’s by BTS, it always feels like they transport to a different dimension of artistic views. Through these MV’s, the song gets a mental image.
And for BTS in particular, the MV’s serve as a continuation or hinting medium toward their Universe aka BU (Bangtan Universe). And if you’re wondering what that is – it’s a storyline created by Bighit Entertainment, wherein every member has a different storyline, which comes together. This Bangtan Universe is also featured up to its first season as a webtoon named Save Me in The webtoon Website.
But, before I stray from the topic and delve deeper into the Bangtan Universe, let’s jump onto today’s piece.

This MV was also known for its bold clothing sense as the boys rocked in ruffes and silky loose shirts.

Fake Love – BTS
This song not only serves us great looks but also serves as a deep and thoughtful message. The song has ballad vibes, with the members singing about a love that makes them want to lie to themselves.

Spring Day – BTS
This MV was another cryptic one as it had many theories, and based on the song’s lyrics, it can be interpreted, that the singer is talking about his friends in a solemn tune, saying how much he misses them and longs to meet them soon. The video encompasses the whole winter vibe as the song compares the missing feeling to that of winter and its snow flying in the air. The significance of the song’s title falls in the latter part of the song, which is more hopeful and talks about how change is possible and that winter would eventually turn to spring, allowing them to meet.
The MV also showed a connection to a short story called, The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas.
