When is BTS Persona Coming Out? -- Before discussing this album, I want to say that although my opinion may be slightly different, this song is lovely. The beat of the lyrics, Kim Namjoon, the visualization of the MV are excellent. It's a shame this song wasn't on the speak yourself setlist. Even though I already imagined how stunning it would be if one stadium sang with Namjoon. Beautiful, right? Haha

Questions that I probably won't be able to answer forever" said BTS's RM.
Meanwhile, in other lyrics, RM describes a person's efforts to act and maintain his image. The songs illustrate this, "This is a barometer of myself that I want to keep. "I" of myself. "I" than others would expect. I'm the one you love. And me which I formed myself."
