OH MY GOODNESS! When BTS started teasing us with photos and trailers and such, I knew this comeback was going to be lethal but nothing, and I mean NOTHING, could prepare me for eye-popping, squee-inducing, cuss word-provoking, heart-stopping amazingness of “Fire.”
Wrapping up their HYYH trilogy with The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever, BTS dropped both the album and their “Fire” MV this past Sunday and I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say ARMYs around the world weren’t prepared for BTS to wrap up this era with such a bang. “Fire” is literally everything a BTS loving zombie could ask for and I’m still so overwhelmed by the MV I’m having the hardest time trying to figure out what I can possibly say about this song other than AAAAUUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!
I’m pretty sure BTS was trying to kill us all with this one. I mean SERIOUSLY! What the heck were they thinking, throwing in all those smirks and smugness and sass. HOLY FLIP! That sass! It kills me! What makes this MV even better is the fact that if the sass isn’t enough to stop your heart, there’s a stupid lethal blonde Jin running around, and a growly Suga voice thrown in to make your knees buckle, and a little punk of a Jungkook to mess with your head, and a Jimin who just… NO! And then there’s V with his perfect hair and gorgeous eyes, and Rap Mon’s attitude and Hobie’s sunshine, which always seems to shine through, even when he’s trying to be a punk… Oh how I love that sunshine! *happy sigh* On top of all that perfection, little bits of choreo thrown in and, of course, it’s heart-stopping and wonderful and it makes me so darn excited to see this song performed in New York next month. Eeep!
Beyond the video and the choreo, the song itself is full of that BTS “be your own person, do your own thing” confidence that I absolutely love. I mean who doesn’t love a song that tells you it’s okay to just be yourself, even if you fail, and reminds you to live your life the way you want because it’s your life and you’re the only one who can live it? It’s a fantastic reminder to those of us who have a hard time believing we’re okay, just as we are, and it’s one I’ll gladly listen to over and over again.
Obviously I’m very biased when it comes to BTS and their music so of course, I’m going to tell you this song is fantastic. What I want to know is, what did you think of it? Do you feel like this is a fitting end to the HYYH era or would you have preferred something different? You know I always love hearing from you so be sure to let me know what you’re thinking in the comments below!
