The world’s goin’ crazy

넌 어때 how bout ya
How about you how bout ya

You think it is okay?

난 좀 아닌 것 같어
I don’t think it’s quite right

귀가 있어도 듣질 않어
Though they have ears, they don’t listen

눈이 있어도 보질 않어
Though they have eyes, they don’t see

다 마음에 물고기가 살어
They all have fish living inside their mind

걔 이름 SELFISH SELFISH
That fish’s name is SELFISH SELFISH

 

우린 다 개 돼지 화나서 개 되지 [woorin da gae dwaeji hwanaseo gae doeji]
We all are dogs and pigs We get angry and become dogs
“We all are called dogs and pigs (see the quoted background information below). Infuriated, we lose our mind.” 

A South Korean government official is in the doghouse (and pigpen) over some disparaging remarks he made last week during a meeting with newspaper reporters, at which he said that 99% of his country’s people are “like dogs and pigs.”

Na Hyang-wook, head of the Education Ministry’s policy bureau, put his foot in his mouth while he was out for drinks, saying, among other things, that 99% of South Koreans have no ability to move up in the world and can be treated like animals — simply fed and kept alive. The remarks were initially reported over the weekend by the Kyunghyang Shinmun, a left-of-center daily newspaper.

Also, notice how their choreography features an ‘animal dance’ in the live performance video linked above.

황새 VS 뱁새 전쟁이야 ERRDAY
It’s a war between storks and crow-tits ERRDAY
There’s a Korean phrase “뱁새가 황새 따라가다 가랑이가 찢어진다,” meaning “If a crow-tits tries to follow a stork, it’ll split its legs.” It teaches how you should tailor your ambitions to the measure of your abilities or the resources given to you. BTS often refer themselves as 뱁새 (crow-tits): underdogs, those who started with disadvantages, the powerless in the society, and so on. 황새 (storks) in this context means those who are born with advantages. This line highlights the severe socioeconomic inequality in Korea.

미친 세상이 yeah
The crazy word yeah

우릴 미치게 해
drives us crazy

그래 우린 다 CRAZY
Yeah we are all CRAZY

자 소리질러 MAYDAY MAYDAY
Now scream MAYDAY MAYDAY
MAYDAY can also be interpreted as May Day, a celebration of laborers and the working classes (labor day is the first day of May in many countries, including Korea).

The whole world seems to be crazy It feels like the end

그램마 니가 미친겨 [michingyeo]
Yeah, dude, you’re crazy

미친 세상에 안 미친 게 미친겨 [ahn michinge michingyeo]
In this crazy world, not being crazy is crazy.
J-Hope is rapping in Choongcheong dialect (satoori) in the above two lines

온 천지 사방이 HELL YEAH
Up and down, front and back, left and right- everywhere is a HELL YEAH

온라인 오프라인이 HELL YEAH
Online and offline, HELL YEAH
HELL YEAH should be read “Hell, yes” considering that the young generation often calls the current Korean society “Hell Chosun.” See below for the background information. 

Hell Joseon or Hell Chosun (Korean: 헬조선, lit. ”Hell Korea”) is a new internet phrase and meme of South Korea that was popularized in the 2010s. It is a compound word of Hell and Joseon, meaning that “[South] Korea is close to hell and hopeless society”. It also means “a country that is so bad that [South] Korea is comparable to hell”.
