[Article] 161010 [Latest Song Turn-Up] We tried writing an honest review of BTS "Blood Sweat & Tears"



Issue Daily journalists suggested making a "frankly speaking" review after listening to new songs released by artists. We talk about the first feel we get after listening to the music, the killing point that stimulates the listener's ears and we also honestly shared what we thought was lacking in the song.



# Revealing you the new song 

Group BTS released their second full album "WINGS" on 10th 12AM KST. Their second full album "WINGS" expresses the conflicts and growth of youths who are faced with temptations. After releasing their first full album "Dark&Wild" back in 2014, they're releasing a full album in 2 years.

The title track "Blood Sweat & Tears" highlights the soft and gentle charms of BTS unlike their usual strong and fierce images.


# How did you feel after listening to it for the first time?

Kim Mijoo
Final bosses of "dreamy + sexy"!! I think it's a track that captured the members' voices really well with the melody!

Kim Sangrok
The dreamy and mysterious Arabian sound and their sexy voices twined around my ears. "As expected by BTS?"

Park Soojung
It was different from their fun boys image, the gentle, dreamy sexiness.

Jeon Yesul
The entire song  was overpowered by sexy vibe. The members' voices too! The trendy sound and punchlines really stand out.


# Which part do you think was the "killing point"?

Kim Mijoo
At 1min 4 secs "You are the whisky deep down my throat"
J Hope's voice when he raps the rhyming "gipsooki" (deep) and "whisky" sounded really sexy.

Kim Sangrok
The part where they breathe out and sing "Take it away~ take it away~". It was soft and deadly. Their "homme fatale" exploded.

Park Soojung
00:36~0046, Suga's rapping really pulled me to the song in a matter of seconds.

Jeon Yesul
2:50, "Please kill me softly"
That burst of sexiness when they hit the high note... "thumbs up"


# What made you disappointed?

Kim Mijoo
I was disappointed because the song sounded really gentle unlike other songs by BTS. I couldn't feel their unique powerful vibe.

Kim Sangrok
I could feel they went through great pains to try a new style but I think it sounds too unique.

Park Soojung
Even after listening to the entire track I couldn't feel their "energy". Their energy in "Fun boys scout" is their charm...

Jeon Yesul
I think it's time for them to release a song like "Danger"
