The BTS ARMY needs to be on high alert all the time because they just never know when BTS is going to surprise them with new music — like right now. Yeah, I'm talking about BTS' "Lights" music video teaser, which reveals a first look at the boys' latest Japanese single's music video set to be released on on July 3. (Considering Japan is 13 hours ahead of U.S. EST, you can probably count on the video dropping on July 2, U.S. ARMY). In the wise words of Jamie Lee Curtis, I say this: "Could you like, chill for a sec?"
For the past few weeks, BTS has been releasing amazing collaborations with artists like Charli XCX and Zara Larsson for their upcoming BTS World soundtrack, and now they go ahead and drop this teaser! Good thing I have the group's notifications set on my phone or else I wouldn't be able to keep up with all this new music. Actually, that's a lie because the BTS ARMY makes sure to trend whatever BTS news comes their way, so I never miss out on anything about the group. (Thank you, fellow ARMYs.)
BTS released the teaser for their upcoming music video on June 20. Yes, just one day before RM and Suga are set to drop their new sub-unit song, which is sure to be super amazing. The ARMY knew that a new Japanese single and music video from BTS was coming, but they certainly weren't prepared for this gorgeous teaser. The clip may only be 36 seconds long, but it's enough to excite fans everywhere for BTS' new single "Lights."
The video shows Jungkook, RM, J-Hope, V, Suga, Jimin, and Jin in dark settings (it looks like a movie theater), with them looking towards the direction of a light source of some kind. In some scenes, the members wear all-white clothing, while at other times, they're wearing regular street style. This could just be for aesthetic, but knowing BTS, this must mean something, right? They always seem to hide symbols throughout their videos, and I'm sure "Lights" won't be an exception. Thankfully, the ARMY is one genius bunch and can probably crack the code before the full video even drops in two weeks.
So, ARMY, without further ado, here's the teaser clip for BTS' upcoming Japanese single "Lights."
Beautiful, right? And I don't know if it's just me, but the video is seriously giving me "Serendipity" by Jimin vibes. I mean, the lights in the video kind of remind me of stars, and both music videos have that same blue-and-white color scheme. And did you hear Jungkook's vocals in that clip? Absolutely beautiful.
Also, remember how I said the BTS ARMY is probably making theories about the clip right about now? I was right! Take a look at what's going through their minds, and may I remind you, the teaser literally just dropped.
Yeah, that's a lot to take in, but I'm ready to analyze every theory right along with the ARMY until the video drops in July.
