Whenever yoongi talks about being ‘’tricked’’ into becoming an idol (dude… didn’t you read your contract before signing it??) he always laughs it off, but i can’t help but feel some underlying bitterness every time he brings it up. He seems more content with it nowadays, but i still feel like he sees it more of as a ‘’means to an end’’ (i.e to be able to create music), rather than something he actually wants to do. At least he doesn’t seem as displeased with it as he did back in 2013-14.
Ever since Zico left Seven Seasons and Block B I’ve had an inkling that in the future we’ll see a similar situation with Suga from BTS. Like there will be no bad blood between him & the rest of the guys or Big Hit but he’ll tire of the idol life and want to expand on his own as a solo rapper/producer in the Khiphop scene prior to his contract expiring. There are just some idols who never seemed to suit idol life, like Zico & BAP’s Yongguk who did end up leaving this year. Suga has the same vibe.
I have wanted an EXO and BTS collab for years but after hearing the similarities and the touching lyrics in chanyeol’s “hand” and suga’s “first love” I would love for those two specifically to collab on something. Not only because it would be a middle finger to the immature fans but also because they are both really talented musicians with a beautiful and emotional way with lyrics and I really respect them both and wish others would stop pitting them against each other.
BTS’ rapline are the best idol rappers. Please prove me wrong. Rappers like Zico have undeniably good flow and versatility. And BAP’s Yongguk has beautiful lyrics time and time again. Stray Kids are excellent for rookies. There’s outstanding female idol rappers of course, Yeeun from clc, Soyeon from g idle etc. so don’t think I’m forgetting abt them either. But not one of your faves can really compare to what RM, Suga, and J-Hope can do, in all aspects of hip-hop, and how far theyve come
