Okay, so yesterday BTS released a whole slew of concept photos, saying it was the precursor to their upcoming promotions but we all know it was actually just a sneaky ploy to get fangirls the world-over so flipping excited for the release of their “Hormone War” MV that when the video finally hit YouTube, the entire fandom would fall out of their chairs and start sobbing uncontrollably over its perfection. (Stinking punks!)
I swear, I’ve spent a whole lot of time trying not to get too wrapped up in BTS, not because I don’t love them and their music, but because I was in danger of loving them too much. I can now tell you that all of that effort has been in vain. When BTS released “Boy in Luv”, I gave up trying to ignore them. When I saw them at KCON, I gave up trying not to love them. When they made their comeback with “Danger”, I knew I was a gonner and now… Now that they’ve gone and thrown “Hormone War” in my face… Well, let’s just say I’ve been spazzing over this video all flipping day long. (And yes, that’s putting it VERY mild.)
Seriously boys! Did you have to make this comeback with the very image I find hardest to resist? Really? Don’t you know what this sexy bad-boy image does to me? Actually, I’m sure you know very well what this image does to girls which is why you chose it for this comeback but really!?! REALLY!?! Why are you trying to kill this poor noona with your ridiculous good looks, adorable playfulness and killer dancing? WHY? Are you trying to give me a heart attack? ‘Cause you’re well on your way!
It’s bad enough I’ve been spazzing over “Hormone War” since I bought Dark & Wild, because how can you not spazz over a song so flipping perfect? I mean really! Have you listened to this song? IT’S FANTASTIC! But now that there’s a video to accompany this amazingness… WHAT THE HECK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH MYSELF? How am I supposed to handle all of these feels?
Every time I sit down to watch this video, I end up yelling at my computer, begging these boys to just stop (PLEASE! JUST STOP!) because I can’t handle the amount of ASDFJKL going on in this video! I really can’t! I’ve officially labeled BTS the most adorable bunch of noona killers on the face of the planet and I both love them and hate them for making me feel happy and excited and WAAAAAHHHHHHHH! while at the same time making me feel old and ugly and depressed. (Because I’m so not the girl they’re singing about and I never will be. Man it sucks getting old!)
Old or not, I can still appreciate the fantastic-ness of this song, the perfection of this video and I can still love BTS with all of my fangirl heart, which, by the way, is exactly what I’m going to do for pretty much the rest of forever. I’m also going to sit here and watch “Hormone War” about a zillion more times and sob over Jimin, with his perfectly messy and completely fantastic hair, his Newsies inspired (and thus, totally swoon-worthy) outfit, his gorgeous sparkling eyes and I’m going to melt every time he flashes that fantastic smile of his. I’m going to go weak in the knees every time I watch J-Hope open that car door and say, “Ladies first”. I’m going to swoon every time I see Rap Mon in that glorious pin-striped suit. I’m going to fall out of my chair every time Suga smiles. I’m going to cry every time Jungkook does anything because every time I see him I’m reminded of how old I am. (This is what happens when you share a birthday with an idol. You’re never allowed to forget your age! Dang it!) I’m going to yell at Jin every time his does that little smirk and I’m going to throw things at my computer every time V puts that stupid lollipop in his mouth. (For the record, I’m now thoroughly convinced lollipops need to be registered as lethal weapons because OH HOLY FLIP! V! JUST STOP!)
To say this video is the epitome of perfection may be going a bit far but it’s certainly one of my new favorites. I love watching BTS be BTS and this is just another way to do that, while at the same time getting to enjoy their music and their dancing. (Which, by the way, is every bit as amazing in person as it is in their videos. Seriously! These boys are incredible dancers, their choreography is always spot on and if you ever get the chance to see them live. TAKE IT! I promise you, you won’t regret it!) I know I sound like a total spazz at the moment but you know what? BTS is a group worthy of spazzing over, so I’m okay with that. Sometimes you just gotta let that inner fangirl out and today was definitely one of those days!
So tell me, what do you think of “Hormone War”? Is it every bit as wondeulrf as I think it is or have I just let my inner fangirl go crazy? What about BTS? Are you a fan or not so much? If you are a fan, what’s your favorite song? Favorite album? Favorite member? I obviously love to fangirl so let me know your thoughts and we can squee together! Because really, it’s so much more fun to sqee with a friend, don’t you think?
