BTS Unleashes “Dark&Wild” Written by Andy On August 23, 2014

After releasing the EP Skool Luv Affair earlier this year, the hardworking group BTS has come back with their first full album, Dark&Wild. They definitely weren’t kidding with the title. Gone is the sappy, innocent attitude. Now, we have an angsty and rather angry group of young men (and one boy) who are being unleashed.

Dark&Wild involves participation from the group on all songs, which is nice. We also see a better line distribution than with their previous releases. Jin and V are both rather good when it comes to their vocals, and it shows. Even Jimin is doing more than executing those crazy high notes. Their lyricism and talents have improved: the rapping is sharper and the vocals clearer

BTS has come back with a completely different look from “Just One Day.” They are edgier and darker. In the behind the scenes video they claim that the choreography for this video is the hardest they’ve done and they managed to learn it in one week!

They go on to also talk about the song and their worries about expressing their emotions correctly. Jimin states that the song is about a boyfriend not receiving calls or texts from his girlfriend and he didn’t know what facial expressions to make.

Although the boys exclaimed multiple times that they are tired, they are seen giving it their all and they still manage to have a good time while filming
