Yeah 누가 내 수저 더럽대
Yeah, who said my spoon is dirty

I don’t care 마이크 잡음 금수저 여럿 패
I don’t care Once I hold my mic, I beat up several gold spoons

Background information:
Spoon class theory refers to the idea that individuals can be classified into different socioeconomic classes (spoon classes) based on the income or assets of their parents and that one’s success in life depends entirely on being born into a wealthy family. The most commonly talked-about spoon classes are (in hierarchical order): the gold spoon, the silver spoon, the bronze spoon, the dirt spoon. (side note: there’s something called “the diamond spoon class” even above the gold spoons.) BTS, coming from a small entertainment agency in an industry that is dominated and almost governed by few big agencies, has been going through unfair treatments and unnecessary hardships.

버럭해
I fly off the handle

잘 못 익은 것들 스테끼 여러 개
Several undercooked (1) steaks (2)

거듭해서 씹어줄게 스타의 저녁에
I’ll chew them repeatedly at the star’s dinner (3)

(1) 잘 못 익은 것들 can be undercooked stuff or unripe stuff as 익다 can mean (i) to be cooked and (ii) to ripen. There’s an idiom “벼는 익을수록 고개를 숙인다 (As it ripens, the rice lowers its head),” which is similar to “the nobler, the humbler.” So the undercooked steaks can be interpreted as arrogant and immature people.
(2) 스테끼 (pronounced stekki) is an old Korean pronunciation of steak, which is still used to refer to steak in a cute way or by old generations. An interesting thing to note is that unlike the standard pronunciation of steak, 스테이크 (steikeu), 스테끼 (stekki) sounds similar to 새끼 (saekki) when when pronounced fast. 새끼 means (i) a baby (animal; also can be used to a human to mean a baby when used by parents or grandparents) or (ii) a bugger, jerk, or little shit.
(3) 씹다 can mean (i) to chew or (ii) to speak ill of someone.
=> Combining everything, “chewing undercooked steaks repeatedly” can be interpreted as “dissing immature and arrogant jerks (who do not “approve” BTS) multiple times”.

World Business 핵심
The core of world business

섭외 1순위 매진
The first on the casting list, Sold out

많지 않지 이 class 가칠 만끽 [mankkig]
There’s not many of this class, enjoy the value

좋은 향기에 악췬 [agchwin] 반칙 [banchig]
It’s a foul to apply a stinky smell onto the good fragrance

Mic mic bungee

 

Mic mic bungee

Bright light 전진
Bright light forward

망할 거 같았겠지만 I’m fine, sorry
You must have thought that we’d fail, but I’m fine, sorry

미안해 Billboard
I’m sorry Billboard
I’m sorry that we’re on Billboard despite your predicting/hoping our failure

미안해 worldwide
I’m sorry worldwide
I’m sorry that we’re successful worldwide despite your predicting/hoping our failure

아들이 넘 잘나가서 미안해 엄마
That I’m too successful, I’m sorry, mom

대신해줘 니가 못한 효도 [hyodo]
I serve the parents right for you who couldn’t do it 

우리 콘서트 절대 없어 포도 [podo]
There’s no ticket remaining for our concert
Word-to-word translation will be “our concert, there never is a grape.” When purchasing concert tickets online, the remaining seats are colored purple, which makes the seating map look like scattered grapes (if there are available seats).

I do it I do it 넌 맛없는 라따뚜이 [lattattui]
I do it I do it You’re a ratatouille that tastes bad

혹 배가 아프다면 고소해
If you’re jealous, sue me
Wordplay: in this context, 고소해 can be (1) sue someone and (2) to be pleased over someone’s misfortune (that the person deserves). So it can also mean “it contents me if you’re jealous.”

Sue it

I don’t have any reason to see you again, this is my last goodbye

할 말도 없어 사과도 하지 마
I don’t have anything to tell you, don’t even bother to apologize

더 볼 일 없어 마지막 인사야
I don’t have any reason to see you again, this is my last goodbye

할 말도 없어 사과도 하지 마
I don’t have anything to tell you, don’t even bother to apologize

 

잘 봐 넌 그 꼴 나지 [kkol naji]
Watch closely, that’s how you’ll end up

우린 탁 쏴 마치 콜라지 [kollaji]
We taste sharp like cola
Wordpla: (1) When something is refreshing or extremely delightful in a slowly-progressing situation, Koreans say “it feels like a sprite,” which is in line with “we taste sharp like cola). Because 쏘다 can be (2) to sting, (3) to criticize, and (4) to shoot, the line can also be “we diss sharply like cola.” 

너의 각막 깜짝 놀라지 [nollaji]
Your corneas will get surprised
There’s a slang “동공지진 (=동공 (pupil) + 지진 (earthquake)),” which is used to say there’s an earthquake happening in their pupils when s
omeone is so shocked/bewildered. It seems like they lyrics used 각막 (corneas; gakmak) instead of 동공 (pupils; donggong) because -k sounds stronger/fiercer than -ng.

꽤 꽤 폼나지 포 포 폼나지 [pomnaji]
It’s quite cool, it’s quite cool

Trivia 轉: Seesaw

시작은 뭐 즐거웠었네
In the beginning, well, it was fun

오르락내리락 그 자체로
Just going up and down itself

어느새 서로 지쳐버렸네
Before we knew, we both became sick of

의미 없는 감정소모에
meaningless waste of emotions

 

반복된 시소 시소게임
A repeated seesaw, seesaw game

이쯤 되니 지겨워 지겨워 졌네
Having come this far, I got sick of, got sick of it

반복된 시소 시소게임
A repeated seesaw, seesaw game

우린 서로 지쳐서 지겨워 졌네
We’re both got tired and became sick of it

 

사소한 말다툼이 시작이었을까
Was the small argument the beginning?

내가 너보다 무거워졌었던 순간
The moment when I became heavier than you

애초에 평행은 존재한 적이 없기에
There has never been a paralleled balance from the beginning–

더욱이 욕심내서 맞추려 했을까
would that be why we were more eager to reach the balance?

사랑이었고 이게 사랑이란 단어의 자체면
If it was love, and if it is the word love itself,

굳이 반복해야 할 필요 있을까
would there be any need to repeat it?

서로 지쳤고 같은 카드를 쥐고 있는 듯해
It seems like we’re both tired and holding the same card in our hands

그렇다면 뭐
Then, well…

 

All right 반복된 시소게임
All right, a repeated seesaw game

이제서야 끝을 내보려 해
I try to put an end to it only now

All right 지겨운 시소게임
All right, a boring seesaw game

누군간 여기서 내려야 돼
Someone has to get off this seesaw

할 순 없지만
Though I can’t

 

누가 내릴지 말진 서로 눈치 말고
Let’s not read each other’s face trying to figure out who’s going to get off or not

그저 맘 가는 대로 질질 끌지 말고
Let’s not drag it on and do as we please

이제 내릴지 말지 끝을 내보자고
Let’s now make the decision whether to get off or not

반복되는 시소게임
A repetitive seesaw game

이제 그만해
Now, stop

 

사람이 참 간사하긴 하지
How crafty the heart of a person is

한 명이 없음 다칠 걸 알면서
Though we know one will get hurt if the other is not there,

서로 나쁜 새낀 되기 싫기에
because we both don’t want to be the bad guy,

애매한 책임전가의 연속에 umm umm
we continue to awkwardly pass the buck, umm umm

지칠 만큼 지쳐서 되려 평행이 됐네
and end up becoming exhausted, ironically reaching the paralleled balance

Ay 이런 평행을 바란 건 아닌데
Ay, this is not the kind of balance that I wanted

 

처음에는 누가 더 무거운지 자랑하며
In the beginning, we brag about who is heavier

서롤 바라보며 웃지
and smile, looking at each other

이제는 누가 무거운지를 두고 경쟁을 하게 되었네
Now we became to compete over who is heavier

되려 싸움의 불씨
It became a tinderbox for a war

누군가는 결국 이곳에서 내려야 끝이 날 듯하네
It seems like, eventually, someone will have to get off to end it

가식 섞인 서롤 위하는 척 더는 말고 이제 결정해야 돼
We should stop pretending to care for each other and decide now 

 

서로 마음이 없다면
If we didn’t have feelings for each other,

서롤 생각 안 했다면
if we didn’t think of each other,

우리가 이리도 질질 끌었을까
would we have dragged it on like this?

이제 마음이 없다면
If you don’t have feelings for me anymore,

이 시소 위는 위험해 위험해
being on this seesaw is dangerous, dangerous

내 생각 더는 말고
Don’t think of me anymore, and

I’m Fine

 

Produced by Pdogg
Written by Pdogg, Ray Michael Djan, Ashton Foster, Lauren Dyson, RM, Jung Bobby, Yoon Guitar, Jordan “DJ Swivel” Young, Candace Nicole Sosa, SUGA, j-hope, Samantha Harper

Spotify | Apple Music

“I’m Fine” is a mirror image of “Save me”. The lyrics of “Save ME” and “I’m Fine” are connected to each other within a chiastic structure.

.

 

시리도록 푸른 하늘 아래 눈 떠
I open my eyes under the painfully blue sky

흠뻑 쏟아지는 햇살이 날 어지럽게 해
Sunshine raining down on me makes me feel dizzy

한껏 숨이 차오르고 심장은 뛰어
I breathe in fully, and my heart pounds

느껴져 너무 쉽게 나 살아있다는 걸
I can feel it so easily that I’m alive

 

괜찮아 우리가 아니어도
It’s okay even if it’s not us,

슬픔이 날 지워도
even if the sorrow erases me,

먹구름은 또 끼고
even if the sky gets covered with dark clouds again,

나 끝없는 꿈 속이어도
and I’m in an endless dream

한없이 구겨지고
Even if I get endlessly crumpled,

날개는 찢겨지고
even if my wings get torn apart,

언젠가 내가 내가 아니게 된달지어도
and I become someone that is not me,

괜찮아 오직 나만이 나의 구원이잖아
it’s okay– only I am my own salvation

못된 걸음걸이로 절대 죽지 않고 살아
I never die but live on with my fierce gait

How you doin? I’m fine

내 하늘은 맑아
My sky is clear

모든 아픔들이여 say goodbye
All my pains, say goodbye

잘 가
Goodbye

 

차가운 내 심장은
Though my cold heart

널 부르는 법을 잊었지만
has forgotten how to call you,

외롭지 않은 걸 괜찮아 괜찮아
I’m not lonely– it’s okay, it’s okay

깜깜한 밤 어둠은
Though the darkness on a pitch-black night

잠든 꿈을 흔들어 놓지만
shakes my dream that is asleep,

두렵지 않은 걸 괜찮아 괜찮아
I’m not afraid– it’s okay, it’s okay

 

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

이제 너의 손을 놓을게
Now I’ll let go of your hand

I know I’m all mine, mine, mine

Cuz I’m just fine

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

더 이상은 슬프지 않을래
I won’t feel sad anymore

I could see the sunshine, shine, shine

Cuz I’m just fine, just fine

 

I’m just fine 내 아픔 다
I’m just fine, all my pains,

이겨낼 수 있어 너 없이 나
I can overcome them without you

I’m just fine 걱정 마
I’m just fine, don’t worry

이제 웃을 수 있고
Because now I can smile,

네 목소린 모두 알아 주니까
and everyone knows your voice

 

I’m just fine, you so fine

슬픔과 상처는 모두 다
All the sadness and scars

이미 지나간 추억이 됐으니
have already become bygone memories

웃으며 보내주자고 we so fine
So let’s let it go with smiles on our faces, we so fine 

I’m so fine, you so fine

우리들 미래는 기쁨만 가득할 테니
Our future will be full of joy

걱정은 접어둔 채 이젠 즐겨
So set aside your worries and enjoy now

수고했어 we so fine
You’ve worked hard, we so fine

 

차가운 내 심장은
Though my cold heart

널 부르는 법을 잊었지만
has forgotten how to call you,

외롭지 않은 걸 괜찮아 괜찮아
I’m not lonely– it’s okay, it’s okay

깜깜한 밤 어둠은
Though the darkness on a pitch-black night

잠든 꿈을 흔들어 놓지만
shakes my dream that is asleep,

두렵지 않은 걸 괜찮아 괜찮아
I’m not afraid– it’s okay, it’s okay

 

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

이제 너의 손을 놓을게
Now I’ll let go of your hand

I know I’m all mine, mine, mine

Cuz I’m just fine

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

더 이상은 슬프지 않을래
I won’t feel sad anymore

I could see the sunshine, shine, shine

Cuz I’m just fine, just fine

 

혹시
Perhaps

너에게도 보일까
Would it be visible to you as well,

이 스산한 달빛이
this dreary moonlight?

너에게도 들릴까
Would it be audible to you as well,

이 희미한 메아리가
this faint echo?

 

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

혼자서라도 외쳐보겠어
I’ll shout out loud, even by myself

되풀이될 이 악몽에
To this nightmare that will be repeated,

주문을 걸어
I cast a spell

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

몇 번이라도 되뇌보겠어
I’ll say it to myself over and over, however many times

또 다시 쓰러진대도
Even if I fall again,

난 괜찮아
I’m fine

 

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

혼자서라도 외쳐보겠어
I’ll shout out loud, even by myself

되풀이될 이 악몽에
To this nightmare that will be repeated,

주문을 걸어
I cast a spell

I’m feeling just fine, fine, fine

몇 번이라도 되뇌보겠어
I’ll say it to myself over and over, however many times

또 다시 쓰러진대도
Even if I fall again,

난 괜찮아
I’m fine

 

 

I’m fine

I’m fine

눈을 뜬다 어둠 속 나
I open my eyes in the darkness

심장이 뛰는 소리 낯설 때
When the sound of my beating heart feels unfamiliar,

마주 본다 거울 속 너
I face you in the mirror

겁먹은 눈빛 해묵은 질문
An afraid look, a long-pending question

 

어쩌면 누군가를 사랑하는 것보다
Perhaps, than loving someone else,

더 어려운 게 나 자신을 사랑하는 거야
it is more difficult to love myself

솔직히 인정할 건 인정하자
Let’s be honest and admit what we have to admit

니가 내린 잣대들은 너에게 더 엄격하단 걸
that your standards are more strict when they are applied to you

니 삶속의 굵은 나이테
The wide growth ring in your life
A tree ring, or a growth ring, is a layer of wood produced during one tree’s growing season. A tree gains a ring after each winter it endures. The longer a growing season is, the wider the corresponding ring is. “The wide growth ring in your life” therefore seems to mean a hardship or a dark period you have managed to go through in your life.

그 또한 너의 일부, 너이기에
That is also a part of you, that is also you

이제는 나 자신을 용서하자
So let’s forgive yourself now

버리기엔 우리 인생은 길어
Our life is too long to be given up

미로 속에서 날 믿어
Trust me in the maze
Song reference: Love Maze

겨울이 지나면 다시 봄은 오는 거야
Once the winter passes, the spring will come again
Song reference: Spring Day

 

차가운 밤의 시선
The stare of a cold night

초라한 날 감추려
To hide my miserable self,

몹시 뒤척였지만
I tossed and turned, but

 

저 수많은 별을 맞기 위해 난 떨어졌던가
Did I fall to be showered by those countless stars

저 수천 개 찬란한 화살의 과녁은 나 하나
I’m the only target aimed by those thousands of glittering arrows

 

You’ve shown me I have reasons

I should love myself

내 숨 내 걸어온 길 전부로 답해
I answer with all my breath and all the path I’ve walked along

 

어제의 나 오늘의 나 내일의 나
Yesterday’s me, today’s me, tomorrow’s me

(I’m learning how to love myself)

빠짐없이 남김없이 모두 다 나
Without exception, all together, they are all me

 

정답은 없을지도 몰라
Perhaps there might not be the answer

어쩜 이것도 답은 아닌 거야
Perhaps this might not be an answer

그저 날 사랑하는 일조차
Even just to love myself,

누구의 허락이 필요했던 거야
I needed to have someone else’s permission

난 지금도 나를 또 찾고 있어
I’m still looking for myself again

But 더는 죽고 싶지가 않은 걸
But I don’t want to die anymore

슬프던 me
Me, who was sad

아프던 me
Me, who was hurt

더 아름다울 美
Me, who will be more beautiful
The Korean pronunciation of 美, a Chinese character meaning beautiful, is mi, making the above three lines end rhyme with each other.

 

그래 그 아름다움이 있다고, 아는 마음이
Yeah, knowing the presence of such beauty

나의 사랑으로 가는 길
is the way to my love

가장 필요한 나다운 일
is the most necessary thing that is most like me

지금 날 위한 행보는
The move that has to be made for me now

바로 날 위한 행동
is the action that is for me

날 위한 태도
is the attitude that is for me

그게 날 위한 행복
That is the happiness for me

I’ll show you what I got

두렵진 않아 그건 내 존재니까
I’m not afraid because that is my own existence

Love myself

 

시작의 처음부터
From the start of the beginning

끝의 마지막까지
and until the finish of the ending,

해답은 오직 하나
there is only one answer

 

왜 자꾸만 감추려고 해 니 가면 속으로
Why do you keep trying to hide under your mask,

내 실수로 생긴 흉터까지 다 내 별자린데
when even the scars made by your own mistake mark your constellations

 

You’ve shown me I have reasons

I should love myself

내 숨 내 걸어온 길 전부로 답해
I answer with all my breath and all the path I’ve walked along

 

내 안에는 여전히
Inside me, there’s still

서툰 내가 있지만
my clumsy self

 

You’ve shown me I have reasons

I should love myself

내 숨 내 걸어온 길 전부로 답해
I answer with all my breath and all the path I’ve walked along

 

어제의 나 오늘의 나 내일의 나
Yesterday’s me, today’s me, tomorrow’s me

(I’m learning how to love myself)

빠짐없이 남김없이 모두 다 나
Without exception, all together, they are all me

Trivia 承: Love

 

Produced by Slow Rabbit
Written by Slow Rabbit, RM, Hiss Noise

Spotify | Apple Music

The lyrics reminded me of BTS’ interview with Zach Sang during BTS’ US promotion in May of 2018 (a great interview!). RM said (at 4:10), “For me, there is a really interesting thing between Korean and English language. You know “love” and “live,” right? It sounds really similar. For Korean, in Korean, we call love in “사랑 [sarang]”, we call live- we call people in “사람 [saram]”, so it sounds really similar. So, I mean like, love, live– it’s the same word.” He also talked about 사람 [saram], 사랑 [sarang], and 살아 [sara; live] in his V Live back in November of 2016 (starting at about 06:40).

Is this love

Is this love

Sometimes I know

Sometimes I don’t

이 다음 가사 음
The next lyrics umm

뭐라고 쓸까 음
What should I write umm

너무 많은 말이 날 돌지만
There are so many words circulating around me,

내 마음 같은 게 하나 없어
but none feels like how I feel

그냥 느껴져
I can just feel it

해가 뜨고 나면 꼭 달이 뜨듯이
like the moon surely rises after the sun rises,

손톱이 자라듯,
like fingernails grow,

겨울이 오면 나무들이 한 올 한 올 옷을 벗듯이
like the trees undress themselves layer by layer when the winter comes,

넌 나의 기억을 추억으로 바꿀 사람
that you are the one who will give meaning to my memories
기억 [記憶; pronounced gieok] and 추억 [追憶; pronounced chueok] are both commonly translated as memory, but the former means past experiences or knowledge stored in our brain (recollection) while the latter means (usually fond and positive) experiences that are reminiscent of someone or some old days.

사람을 사랑으로 만들 사람
that you are the one who will make a person into a love
사람 [saram] to 사랑 [sarang].

널 알기 전 내 심장은 온통 직선뿐이던 거야
Before knowing you, my heart was filled with straight lines only
Notice how ㅁ, the consonant in the bottom of 람 of 사람, is comprised of four straight lines.

 

난 그냥 사람, 사람 사람
I’m just a human, human, human

넌 나의 모든 모서릴 잠식
You erode all my edges

나를 사랑, 사랑, 사랑으로 만들어 만들어
and make me a love, love, love
For 사람 to become 사랑, the edges of ㅁ have to be smoothed out so that ㅁ can become ㅇ. Similar to English, but not in the entirely same way, the word “edge” is used to describe people in Korean. A person with edges is someone who is difficult and unsociable. “You” are the one who melts “my” edges away to make me into someone who is able to love (or who is a love).

우린 사람, 사람, 사람
We are humans, humans, humans

저 무수히 많은 직선들 속
Among those countlessly many straight lines,

내 사랑, 사랑, 사랑
my love, love, love

그 위에 살짝 앉음 하트가 돼
When we gently sit on it, it becomes a heart
Imagine gently pressing the top of ㅇ (that used to be ㅁ) towards the center to make a heart-shape.

You make I to an O

I crossed all the letters and reached you

봐 내와 네도 똑같은 소리가 나잖아

만약 내가 간다면 어떨까
What would be it like if I leave

내가 간다면 슬플까 넌
If I leave, would you feel sad?

만약 내가 아니면 난 뭘까
If it isn’t me, what would I be?

결국 너도 날 떠날까
Would it be that you, too, will eventually leave me?

 

스치는 바람, 바람, 바람
Wind, wind, wind that brushes by

(I can only hope that you are not)

흘러갈 사람, 사람, 사람
Person, person, person, that will pass by

(만 아니길 바랄 뿐)
(I can only hope that you are not)

기분은 파랑, 파랑, 파랑
My mood is blue, blue, blue

(머릿속은 온통 blue)
(Inside my head, it’s all colored in blue)

널 얼마나 마나 마나
How much I love you, how much, much
There is no verb in the original lyrics, so the decision to put “love” was made purely based on my own interpretation.

얼마나 마나 마나
How much, much, much

 

넌 나의 사람, 사람, 사람
You’re my person, person, person

넌 나의 바람, 바람, 바람
You’re my wind, wind, wind

넌 나의 자랑, 자랑, 자랑
You’re my pride, pride, pride

넌 나의 사랑 (나의 사랑)
You’re my love (my love)

단 한 사랑 (단 한 사랑)
One and only love (One and only love)

 

넌 나의 사람, 사람, 사람
You’re my person, person, person

넌 나의 바람, 바람, 바람
You’re my wind, wind, wind

넌 나의 자랑, 자랑, 자랑
You’re my pride, pride, pride

넌 나의 사랑 (나의 사랑)
You’re my love (my love)

단 한 사랑 (단 한 사랑)
One and only love (One and only love)
