The members of BTS are big followers of Jimin

Back in January 2020, the BTS members watched the artwork movie for “Black Swan” for one more Bangtan Bomb. During the Bangtan Bomb, the members of BTS acknowledged that they might image Jimin performing MN Dance Company’s choreography due to his up to date dance background.

“I just pictured this as Jimin and the six black swans in my head,” RM stated.

“Jimin, let’s get you shirtless and do a dance just like that,” Suga stated.

Jimin replied, “I’m on it.”

For the official music video, Jimin was in a position to showcase his up to date dance expertise. Shots with the members of BTS have been interspersed with scenes of Jimin dancing, and his scenes confirmed him taking over the “black swan” persona. It’s clear from the brand new Bangtan Bomb that the BTS members have been impressed with Jimin.

“Jimin’s just amazing,” J-Hope stated at the beginning of the video.

Anytime Jimin confirmed up within the music video, the members of BTS would say “Whoa, Jimin” in unison.

J-Hope and Jimin have been the dancing shadows

The music video opens with the BTS members sporting white fits just like their outfits from the primary set of idea photographs from Map of the Soul: 7. This look represents “white swans” earlier than their descent into the darkness. As the music video continues, BTS put on black outfits, signaling their transformation into “black swans.”

At a number of factors within the video, massive shadows danced behind the BTS members, referencing Carl Jung’s psychological theories about character archetypes. In the Bangtan Bomb, J-Hope and Jimin revealed they have been the dancing shadows.

“That’s me in the back,” Jimin stated throughout Suga’s first verse.

“I did Namjoon’s shadow,” J-Hope stated.

He then pointed and stated, “That’s me,” throughout RM’s verse.

At the tip, Jungkook seemed again out throughout the stage and a shadow fell away.

“That’s me too,” Jimin stated excitedly.

What filming the ‘Black Swan’ music video was like

BTS’s “Black Swan” music video was filmed on the Los Angeles Theatre. In the Bangtan Bomb, the members of BTS discussed what it was like filming there.

“Wow the place looks huge,” Jin stated in the beginning of the video.

“Right? And it was pretty small too,” RM stated.

“That’s not a set, it’s a real building,” Jin stated concerning the spectacular backdrop throughout V’s verse.

“The location is important,” stated RM.

“I was so sleepy then,” Jungkook stated.

“Yeah this was tough,” Jin agreed.

Suga replied, “After this I went to watch a basketball game. I was nodding off.”

“Filming was really tough,” RM stated.
