BTS Rap Monster Awakening Music Video Review

With a group, Rap Monster is good, with a collaboration, he’s even better, but on his own, he can stand tall and really hold his own.  In Rap Monster’s first solo music video “Awakening” he proves his worth by immediately drawing you in with a melodic track and wastes no time hitting you full force with his rap.  

As a rapper and an idol, he’s gotten a lot of flack from others in the industry.  People call him a sell out and a fake, but he sets out to show them he  doesn’t care and will stand by his group.  This solo release is absolutely precarious in re-establishing his skill as a rapper, lyricist, and songwriter as well as the passion he has towards his chosen path.

One of the things I love most about this song is how it establishes that he’s still human.  Often, idols are put above normal people as if they’re perfect and don’t have issues or a care in the world.  This really emphasizes some of the challenges they face.  Unfortunately, even amongst their peers, there is hostility and doubt in their skills.  

Rap Monster didn’t hold back throughout the song, barely pausing to take a breath as he spewed out line after line proving his haters wrong.  The music video backed him up with theme. 

Throughout the video, there are glimpses of fire and a bandaged face, but near the end of the video, the face is unwrapped, indicating his rebirth.  Some have speculated that this also is related to the rumors surrounding the mass amount of surgically gained beauty present in the K-Pop industry.

I could really listen to this song on repeat.  It isn’t a song that just applies to him, but can be applied to everyone.  There are always criticizers, haters, etc, that attack people, and this song really shows that you can over come them and prove yourself by following your passion.

Hangul

내가 추락하는 그 순간
누가 내 손 잡아줄 건가
무대를 내려온 순간
그 누가 내 옆에 있을까
Just tell me that i can survive
In this cold world, just feel my vibe
I know one day at a time
The sun gon’ shine

I lost too many friends
You know that i did lost too many clans
Being a singer i lost too many bands
I couldn’t help but spit and spit keepin repeatin too many damns
Gotta let my eyes watch too many ends
Outside was a whole battlefield so i bring out the chopper
밤마다 내 안에 있는 나 스스로와 싸워
심장은 뛰고, 내 동료들은 내 뒷통수를 쳐
회사 가더니 병신 다 됐다며
Yeah fuck you I’m an idol, yeah yeah i’m an idol
한 땐 싫었지만 now I love to get that title
방송 나와서 끝끝내 부정하는 누구들관 다르게
이젠 온전히 날 인정하고 그저 나는 나를 해
아이돌인지 아티스트인진 사실 중요한 적 없었지
니들이 날 보는 시선. 그게 나일 뿐이었었지
타이틀에 연연하고 수식어에 목맸네
잘 들어봐 시간이 지나 조금은 더 똑똑해진 놈의 랩
이 말들은 아니야 wordplay, it just a warplay the world plays
우린 다시 병정처럼 싸울 뿐 errday
Yehh 난 제대로 걸어 비트 위에 목숨을 걸 땐
이 노랠 부르는 오늘이 나의 두 번째 birthday
My buddies the way you taught me, the confidence that you got me
was more than ‘rarri, lambo mercy, maserati you got me?
이제 그냥 come give me an XO. go bring your next soul
끝없는 냉소 but im 랭보 지옥에서 보낸 네 철
BOOM

내가 추락하는 그 순간
누가 내 손 잡아줄 건가
무대를 내려온 순간
그 누가 내 옆에 있을까
Just tell me that i can survive
In this cold world, just feel my vibe
I know one day at a time
The sun gon’ shine

English

in the moment of my failure
will someone hold my hand?
in the moment when I come down from the stage
will that person be next to me?
just tell me that I can survive
in this cold world, just feel my vibe
I know one day at a time
the sun gon’ shine

I lost too many friends
you know that I did lost too many clans
being a singer, I lost too many bands
I couldn’t help but spit and spit, keepin’ repeating too many damns
gotta let my eyes watch too many ends
outside was a whole battlefield so I bring out the chopper
every night inside me I quietly fight with myself
my heart pounds, my colleagues stab me in the back
while saying that I became a moron after joining a company
yeah fuck you I’m an idol, yeah yeah I’m an idol
at one time I hated it but now I love to get that title
when I come out on broadcast it’s all over, I’m different from those who are corrupted
now now I’m completely acknowledged and I just do me
whether I’m an idol or an artist, to be honest it’s not important
your attention when you look at me, that was all just me
stuck to the title and hung from a modifier
listen well, time is passing, the rap of a bastard who’s gotten a little smarter
it isn’t these words, wordplay, it’s just a warplay the world plays
again we fight just like soldiers, errday
yeah I walk properly when I risk my life on top of the beat
the today when I’m singing this song is my second birthday
my buddies the way you taught me, the confidence you got me
was more than ‘Rarri, Lambo, Mercy, Maserati you got me?
now just come give me an XO, go bring your next soul
an endless cynical smile but I’m Rimbaud, your time sent from hell
BOOM!

in the moment of my failure
will someone hold my hand?
in the moment when I come down from the stage
will that person be next to me?
just tell me that I can survive
in this cold world, just feel my vibe
I know one day at a time
the sun gon’ shine
