Note: The wordplay used throughout this track is similar to the one used in Trivia 承: Love, RM’s solo track in LOVE YOURSELF : ANSWER. It’s based on the phonetic similarity of (1) 사람 (pronounced saram), a noun that means a person, (2) 살아 (pronounced sara), a conjugation of 살다, a verb that means to live, and (3) 사랑 (pronounced sarang), a noun that means love.

Side note: In Converse High, there’s a line that goes “
If brushed, it’s meant to be. If soaked into, it’s love, someone said. But perhaps I’ve already been colored by you.”

Note: In EP.5 of Break The Silence, a docuseries that shows BTS’ lives during the Love Yourself and Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tours in 2018-19, SUGA said, “You lose as much as you gain. You gain as much as you lose. For me, I lost the ordinary. That’s the biggest change. What that means is — what’s ordinary to others is very special to me, whereas what’s special to others is very ordinary to me. Then, before you know it, your set of values changes, the values with which you see the worlds.”
