Run

“Run”, one of the main tracks from The Most Beautiful Moments in Life, Pt 2, is a simple, but really lovely song.  With the catchy chorus about running, it’s easy to just get lost in the track.

When I started the music video, I was expecting it to be just a typical BTS dance clip (not that it is ever a bad thing, by any means), but I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be somewhat of a story.  

 It looked like the filming of this video was actually a ton of fun, what with the water fight and pillow fights.  Plus being able to destroy things? What’s not to love there.   I ended up looking up fan theories about the music video because I wanted to see what others thought and found a few theories that made sense and one that stuck out pretty clearly.

‘Jin is the only member alive and the others are dead but he’s still seeing them. They’re there in his memories but it’s likely he is hallucinating.’

Nobody knows the full meaning behind the video, but it is definitely an emotional story, regardless of whether you fully understand it or not.

Lyrics (Credit to Color Coded Lyrics):

You are my only sun, one and only in the world
I bloomed for you, but I’m still getting thirsty
It’s too late, too late, I can’t live without you
Though my branch runs dry, I reach for you with all my strength

No matter how far I reach for you,
It is just an empty dream dream dream
No matter how crazy I run,
I remain on the same place place place
Just burn me! Yes, push me out!
This is crazy-fool’s love running

Let me run more
Please let me run more
Even though my feet are full of scars
I smile whenever I see you

Let’s run run run again! I can’t stop running
Let’s run run run again! I can’t help running
Only thing I can do is run
Only thing I can do is love you

Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to fall down
Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to be injured
I am happy enough even though I can’t get you
Curse me, this foolish destiny!

(Run)
Don’t tell me bye bye
(Run)
You make me cry cry
(Run)
Love is a lie lie
Don’t tell me, don’t tell me
Don’t tell me bye bye

Everybody say it is over but I can’t stop this
I can’t tell whether it is sweat or tears
My bare-love and tough typhoon and wind
Can only make me run more with my heart

Let me run more
Please let me run more
Even though my feet are full of scars
I smile whenever I see you

Let’s run run run again! I can’t stop running
Let’s run run run again! I can’t help running
Only thing I can do is run
Only thing I can do is love you

Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to fall down
Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to be injured
I am happy enough even though I can’t get you
Curse me, this foolish destiny!

Memories are crumbling like
dried flower leaves
On my fingertips and under my feet
And behind my back
Like chasing butterfly or wondering in dreams
I follow your traces
Please guide me please stop me
Please let me breathe

Let’s run run run again! I can’t stop running
Let’s run run run again! I can’t help running
Only thing I can do is run
Only thing I can do is love you

Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to fall down
Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to be injured
I am happy enough even though I can’t get you
Curse me, this foolish destiny!

(Run)
Don’t tell me bye bye
(Run)
You make me cry cry
(Run)
Love is a lie lie
Don’t tell me, don’t tell me
Don’t tell me bye bye
