War of Hormone

BTS is really showing their lady love in the energetic “War of Hormone”, and fans seem to take it one of two main ways; the boys are showing their appreciation of women (because they’re young and at that age…) or they’re objectifying them.  Honestly, it’s a bit of both, but not in a bad way.

This song is full of energy and catchy lyrics.  From the amusing way the guys try to get the girls attention to the really catchy “la la” portion of the song, there is no lacking of energy.  One of coolest thing I noticed, which might seem silly but stuck out to me, was the way the group turned away to let the rapper out in the open, especially near the end.  It was a really creative way of putting that person up front and center.

This music video has a really old school feel to it with the black and white, with splashes of red, and the older looking setting.  Not to mention the fact that some of the clothing choices just scream 70’s bad-boy to me.

Lyrics (Credit to Color Coded Lyrics):

Thank you for existing
Please call me, I’ll buy you food
I think I’m crazy these days
Girls wear things that make me cough cough,
see right through, see right through
(Very much) thank you! For improving my eye sight
(Natural LASIK) Don’t need to spend money on that
I’ll be in panic I’ll be a fan
And I’ll be a man of you you you you babe

My eyes keep turning to the girls (yup)
Girls are like an equation, us guys just do them (yup)
Wear them more,
your high heels
I’m 18, I know what I need to know
I know that girls are the best things in the world
Yes I’m a bad boy so i like bad girl
Come here baby, we’re gonna hit it off

(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Tell me what you want right now
(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Imma give it to you girl right now
You’re not mine but you’re the best
My body twists and turns in front of you
I want to approach you but you’re seriously too beautiful

Girls are the best
present present
My real wish is
Only you, only you

If it’s you, I’m ok
Oh, I can’t hold back every day
Your front is the best, your back is the best
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
Even your walk is the best

It’s completely ridiculous
I don’t care about girls I’ll play with once and say goodbye
But I learn when I see you, Body 101
My testosterone heavily shows up
After winning a war of hormones
I’ll do some research, your existence
is against the rules, a foul
If the standard of beauty is in the ocean,
you’re the Seriously Sea 1
A mini cultural asset
that should be taken care of on a national level

Her hair, body, waist, legs,
even her other unspeakable parts
Saying I don’t care would be ridiculous as a guy
I lose it just at her tiniest gestures
Girl, your temptations keep me away
from my computer every night
For her, it’s lady first
Girls are like cold ice mountains? Let it go
A female that drives me crazy, provoking me every day
After fighting my hormones again today,
I’ll pop my pimple

(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Tell me what you want right now
(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Imma give it to you girl right now
You’re not mine but you’re the best
My body twists and turns in front of you
I want to approach you but you’re seriously too beautiful

Girls are the best
present present
My real wish is
Only you, only you

If it’s you, I’m ok
Oh, I can’t hold back every day
Your front is the best, your back is the best
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

(Because of who?) Because of girls
(Because of what?) Because of hormones
(Because of what?) Because I’m a guy
(Because I’m a guy?) Because you’re a girl

(Because of who?) Because of girls
(Because of what?) Because of hormones
(Because of what?) Because I’m a guy
(Because I’m a guy?) Because you’re a girl

Girls are the best
present present
My real wish is
Only you, only you

If it’s you, I’m ok
Oh, I can’t hold back every day
Your front is the best, your back is the best
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
Even your walk is the best

Overall, I thought the song and music video were really well done.  It was casual but flirty at the same time.  The lyrics kept cracking me up.  I think my favorite was “Please call me, I’ll buy you food” – or however that’s supposed to be translated.  I’ve actually had my husband say that to me before so I couldn’t help but laugh.
