An in detail fangirl reaction to Fake Love by BTS

Hello there!

If you have been living under a rock know that BTS have made a new comeback and a new MV to go with it and I AM LIVING FOR IT! I have honestly cried (which I haven’t done since Love Simon and Leah on the Offbeat) and I don’t mean the “sob sob” I mean the full on ugly-crying-gut-wrenching-heart-in-throat-blubbering-mess-of-blood-sweat-and-tears-crying. I have lost all capacity to write, read and even speak english so at the moment you are currently reading the language of a fangirl. Anyway I have decided to make a fangirl analysis of Fake Love by BTS (The MV)

Note that: 

Kim Namjoon = RM

Kim Seokjin = Jin

Min Yoongi = Suga

Jung Hoseok = JHope/Hobi

Park Jimin = Jimin

Kim Taehyung = V

Jeon Jeongguk = Jungkook

Also the pictures showing up later in the post are screen shots I taken from the MV. Surprisingly they are really good quality! (or at least some of them are)

THOUGHTS GOING THROUGH MY HEAD

  • Big Hit Entertainment logo starts us off (as always) and (as always) this video is going to be LIT!
  • What is up with BTS and flowers?
  • WHY OH WHY DOES MY BIAS, JIN HAVE TO BE THE VERY FIRST PERSON IN THIS MUSIC VIDEO THIS IS SO UNFAIR!!  UNBELIEVABLE AND WHY DOES HE HAVE TO BE SO UTTERLY PERFECT? THIS IS SO NOT COOL! *but it is because this is Jin and this is BTS…*
  • Jungkook!! Why are you–and then there was darkness…
  • Kim Taehyung’s vocals are leaving me Jungshook. I am shook this is too lit for my body to cope with.
  • OH THOSE SILHOUETTES!
  • OH I LIVE FOR THE CHOREO
  • HOW DO YOU MOVE SO WELL! HOW DO YOU DANCE SO WELL NOT EVEN I CAN DO THAT HOW CAN YOU JUST
  • AND OH THE MUSIC STARTS AS WELL AND MY GOODNESS THE BEATS
  • THE NEO-CLASSICAL LOOK AND THE HANDS I AM NOT CHILL HERE IT’S A FEW SECONDS INTO IT AND I’M ALREADY CRYING HOW DARE THEE!
  • The earrings that V has… I know a friend who would die for those 😉
  • “For you could I pretend like I was strong when I was hurt” OH MY CHILDREN!!! NOOO!!! *but you have to admit when they said those lines they were SO GOOD*
  • JUNGKOOK’S RED JACKET! I AM LIVING FOR THAT MY GOSH!
  • The zebra stripped top though. *breathes heavily*
  • Jungkook does this solo dance thing for a little bit but why does it have to be the best few seconds of my life???
  • TAEKOOK MOMENTS!!!!! *ALERT ALERT ALERT*
  • Jin again. Please give me a warning when this happens
  • That light focused on Jungkook’s face… look he is not my bias or bias wrecker but WHY DO YOU HAVE TO LOOK LIKE A GOD!
  • Yet again Jungkook’s sort-of solo?
  • Imagine the room that explodes around Jin as my heart.
  • JIN SINGING FAKE LOVE IS JUST MY FAVOURITE THING IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW
  • My bias wrecker has highlights… in his hair… and he is now very close to the camera
  • THERE IS A HIT OF JIN’S STOMACH IN ONE SECOND OF THE MV! I AM SHOOK!
  • Annnnnd then there is V

  • More choreo. Fake Love is the product of Blood Sweat and Tears and DNA combined.
  • Jin don’t look so afraid!! NO!! CHILD I CAN BAKE YOU BROWNIES AND EVERYTHING WILL BE BETTER!! (I’m serious my brownies are pretty good)
  • AND ENTER BIAS WRECKER NUMBER #2 RM

  • That blueness that redness. That RM-ness!!!
  • And back to Jungkook who is locked in a room
  • JHOPE!!! MY BRO WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN A CREEPY ROOM LIKE THAT!!
  • V wrecking us again in a camera cut
  • BTS running for about 1 second which is honestly more exercise than I do in a week ;P
  • YES JHOPE GET JUNGKOOK OUT OF THAT DARK ROOM!!!!
  • Does. JHope. Have. Purple. Ends?
  • JHope “mum-ing” Jungkook
  • Jimin being the perfect Jimin that he is and playing the aesthetic game
  • What’s up with BTS and their blue eyes? First it was Jungkook in the teaser and now there is Jimin in the actual MV. Then again… couple goals (everyone ships Jungkook and Jimin together for those of you who are new to the fandom. There is also Taekook which is V/Kim Taehyung and Jungkook but I’m more of a Jikook shipper)

  • Jungkook watching Jimin from above *AHEM COUPLE GOALS ALERT ALERT ALERT!!!*
  • Why Jin do you have to stare at me through the camera??
  • I swear he only just recently got his ears pierced and also can we just appreciate the 60cm shoulders Jin has (it’s a legitimate calculation)

  • “The Jin look-to-the-side” look
  • Lantern without the flower anymore? IS THIS SYMBOLISM FOR SOMETHING?
  • Running through a door
  • Also enter dance break! Which also coincidentally reveals Jungkook’s stomach. This would make a lot of teenage girls scream I can confirm this.
  • V probably checking out the next Gucci sale on his phone while his friend Jungkook is running for his life in a corridor. Also V how much did that ring on your finger cost?

  • Told you poor Jungkook was running for his life because now the floor is collapsing! Also I think V heard this/sensed it and that’s why his (blue) eyes are widened in this shot (YET AGAIN WHAT IS UP WITH THE BLUE EYED BTS MEMBERS??!)

  • Forget the “Mic Drop” BTS have now invented the phone drop! Annnnd it turns to salt. I wouldn’t have minded if my fancy Iphone X turned into the money I spent for it but I would be seriously disappointed if it turned into salt. Yet again this could potentially be symbolism for something I don’t know yet.

  • YES V ROCK THAT BLACK HAIR!
  • Mine and Jungkook’s long fringes match!
  • COSTUME CHANGE! AND JUNGKOOK I SWEAR HAS NOW STOLEN JIMIN’S JACKET FROM DNA AND MAKE MODIFICATIONS TO IT! (yet again couple goals come on matching outfits!!)
  • JIN’S KNEE EXPOSED IN SHOCKING RIPPED JEANS!!!! *ALERT ALERT ALERT!!!!* Also this just makes me want to wear a hoodie now while passionately acting and dancing dramatically
  • OOH I LIKE THIS!!!

  • DID JUNGKOOK JUST DAB!!!!!! I just went back in slow mo to just see if I was right!

  • Okay who is this dude in the yellow print shirt. Is this “future” Jungkook?

  • Brown hair RM is my aesthetic I DON’T CARE what anyone says
  • Suga’s hair IS JUST… I CAN’T DEAL AND ALSO THAT JACKET!! (BTS are lifting up the jacket game here!) and those converses!!! But… then I saw the books lying there on the ground. I got triggered…

  • Min Yoongi’s crinkled hair though

  • How many Snickers chocolate bars were purchased for the production of this video? I just want to know because LOOK AT THIS!! To be honest I would happily eat that many Snickers chocolate bars. I love Snickers a lot 😉 I can forgive BTS for that 🙂

  • Jungkook looking into the camera with the “I know what you did last summer” look.
  • Jimin bias wrecking me for the 1000000th time this whole video
  • FIRE!!! *insert dance choreo here*
  • More ripped jeans and purple/blue aesthetics that I AM LIVING FOR!!!!
  • BEWARE FOR JIN IS BACK! and close to the camera because BigHit Entertainment loves to ruin me. Also just look at JHope and Suga’s hair here!

  • Industrial waterfalls WOOP WOOP! You can hear a pin drop. Why? Because the music stopped and you can hear the waterfall now. (I really want to visit these BTS sets!!)
  • THE LANTERN HAS RETURNED!!!! WITH SAND UNDERNEATH IT Jungkook plays with the sand and somehow it becomes butterflies/floating things?
  • Relaxation upon Jeon Jeongguk’s face as he let’s the butterflies go (symbolism for hope perhaps?)
  • Waterfall opens up to reveal a door (maybe this is a meaning that unless you let go of your negative thoughts/feelings then maybe then you can open yourself to new opportunities and move forward??)
  • DO NOT DROWN JIMIN. DO NOT DROWN JIMIN. DO NOT DROWN JIMIN
  • But then again maybe this is a conspiracy theory!!! IN THIS MIRROR SCENE JUNGKOOK SEES A RANDOM PERSON WHICH IS WEARING JIMIN’S LEOPARD PRINT JACKET. MAYBE JUNGKOOK IS THINKING ABOUT HIS PAST MISTAKES AND HOW HE “KILLED/DROWNED” JIMIN?
  • Suga smirks at the fire about to engulf him

  • And so then everything is basically falling apart. Those lights that surrounded V in that picture I attached are winking out now. Maybe Jimin is the “link” between everyone or “the glue?” and without him there is “no BTS?”
  • TURN YOUR PHONE/LAPTOP AROUND FOR THIS: Save me/Am Fine IS THIS A MESSAGE FROM JIMIN? IS THE DROWNING A METAPHOR FOR “I AM DROWNING IN MY OWN TEARS?”/POOL OF SADNESS I am getting so many theories here and my brain is exploding with them.

  • And so we finish with Jungkook meeting with “The devil/Shadow person” and silhouettes of BTS again! note that one member has their hand on another members wrist (Let’s presume Jungkook for reasons being) before letting go of it.

And so after getting a truckload of feels dumped on me I am shook. Officially and confirmed. I have decided to call my other blog Throne of Shook for a while because of it. Because of me ugly crying (I’m actually not kidding. I was a train wreck) I have not picked up the references and conspiracies in the MV! BUT AFTER WATCHING IT A SECOND TIME FOR YOU GUYS MY EYES HAVE BEEN OPENED!!!!

Comment below what theories you had after watching the MV. Link to the MV is right here:

Anyway I hope you enjoyed this fangirl analysis I have a conspiracy theory for BTS to be posted here eventually because I JUST LINKED THE DOTS BETWEEN PREVIOUS THEORIES AND FAKE LOVE!
