They call me hope

Do you know why I am hope?

판도라의 history 그게 내 born
Pandora’s history, that’s what I was born out of
Note: this is potentially a cross-language wordplay using “born” and 본 (本; pronounced bon), where 본 means the origin or essence. 

인간에게 주어진 큰 신들의 성심
The good faith given by the great gods to mankind 

판도라가 남긴 상자 속의 한 빛
A ray of light left in the box by Pandora,

때 묻지 않은 소년에게 대입
projected onto an innocent young boy

Till the end, 방탄의 희망이 되라는 frame
Till the end, the frame had him become the hope of Bangtan

그렇게 주어진 운명의 수여식
The ceremony where the fate was given to the boy just like that

That’s my name

신화로 깊어지는 의미와 함께
With its meaning deepening with the embedded myth,

On my way

Someone’s light, someone’s smile

Someone’s hope, 내 활동들은 someone’s life
Someone’s hope, what I do become someone’s life
Note: Piece of Peace Pt.1 (“If I can give strength to someone, can be a light to someone, I wish, I could be a Piece of Peace.”).

시간은 이름대로 흘러가 someone’s star
Time flows true to its name, someone’s star

내 영혼이 다듬어지며 생기는 모토와 바이브
With my soul getting refined, there come motto and vibe
Note: Hope World (“My father mother; I resemble their blood; A baton handed over to me, I run to this motto; this is my own ecstasy; Cheers to my world”).

그렇게 제출해 내 이력서, 비로소
Like that, I finally submit my resume
Note: Hip Hop Phile (“Writing the resume of my clumsy self, break out from my nameless self and fly over the stage”).

첫 도약, hope world, 필요했던 필연성
The first leap, hope world, the inevitability that was necessary

계속 발전을 꿈꿔
I keep dreaming of growth

‘What’s my path?’

‘What do I have to say?’

Just keep on doing my thang

We need hope

우린 뒤로 걸어도 무섭지 않을 벤자민 버튼 [beoteun]

앞장서 조금이나마 느낄 수 있다면은
I stand at the forefront, and if people could feel it even just a bit,

일깨워 주고파 각자 숨은 작은 영웅을
I’d like to let them know that there’s a little hero hidden inside every one of them
