November 22, 2019, BTS attended the MMAs and on December 4, 2019, BTS attended MAMA’s. Each with mind-blowing, extraordinary performances. Yet, there have been many been many theories if you look closely.
BTS MMA Solo Performances
“In Greek mythology, Corona Borealis was linked to the legend of Theseus and the minotaur. It was generally considered to represent a crown given by Dionysus to Ariadne, the daughter of Minos of Crete, after she had been abandoned by the Athenian prince”
This is very interesting, as this constellation has seven stars, the same exact number of members in BTS. With each member representing a different greek god.
Taehyung = Apollo (God of the Sun)
Taehyung is seen dancing under the sunrise and bright daylight with spotlights in the shape of sun rays. Also, Taehyung’s happy and optimistic personality would fit perfectly as Apollo.
Jin = Ares (God of War)
Jin is shown riding a trojan horse, with back-up dances, reassembling an army of soldiers. Perfectly depicting the god of war, Ares.
Jimin = Artemis (Goddess of the Moon)
Jimin has always been known to break gender norms, as he performs a soft and graceful dance (which women are known to do). Dancing under the moonlight dressed in white, perfectly depicting the goddess of the moon, Artemis. But, Artemis and Apollo are twin siblings, almost like how Jimin and Taehyung were born in the same year. Both being very close ever since.
Yoongi = Hephaestus (God of Fire)
In many past music videos, Yoongi has always found himself surrounded by fire. Such as in “I Need U” and “Fake Love”. Which could represent either his anger or passion towards a certain subject. Much like the Greek god Hephaetus.
Jungkook = Poseidon (God of the Sea)
Jungkook performs on a water-based floor, automatically making him Poseidon. King of the Ocean and god of the seas, as Jungkook is usually the opposite element that Yoongi is. In order to balance or calm him, since usually, the two are found as brothers in the MV theories.
Hoseok = Zeus (God of Thunder)
Hoseok has so much power and charisma in each performance he does, it’s no wonder why he is Zeus. Dancing under the light-strobes that resemble lightning strikes along with the techno-hip-hop beat.
Namjoon = Dionysus (God of Wine, and creator of the crown “Corona Borealis”)
Namjoon, leader of BTS, as well as the leading song title of their album (Dionysus). With Dionysus, being the creator of the Northern Crown or Corona Borealis. It’s like how Namjoon brought all of the BTS members together, too.
BTS MAMA VCRs
We all know that in every MAMA performance, their VCR always have some clue or hint at their next album comeback. And the theory remains true as this year we get even more clues:
- Future Meets Past: CALLING
- Past Meets Present: WORLD
- Future Meets Past: Eternal Journey
This explains, why BTS has been performing their older songs from 2013-2014, songs we haven’t seen them perform in years. They were trying to make a reference or “hint” at this next comeback concept.
Ones where they will bring back the past… such as Boy In Luv (2013) alludes to Boy With Luv (2019) with much better positive attributes. Showing us that BTS has indeed grown but in a good way.
Magic Shop Items
However, another VCR depicts each individual member holding a certain item, each different than the last. Looking closely, you can tell some of the items actually resemble past theories with the WINGS era.
All whose items have been traded in the Magic Shop, in exchange to bring the rest of the members back.
Check out my other blog on more in-depth detail on the WINGS and Magic Shop items theory: http://madmeaning.com/theory/the-ultimate-bts-mv-theory/
Another thing to mention is BTS’s meticulous and attention to detail to every culture they convey. With the origin of their song “Dionysus” being of Greek origins. But they also added a very small detail of men wearing veils.
This is apparently, an elegant form of containing your anger. Which also alludes to the WINGS era, when the members were also found wearing veils. Meaning, BTS had to hide and contain their emotions away from each other.
The shadows, itself, might as well be a reference to their next album name. This MAMA VCR is also very thought consuming as it portrays the seven members getting absorbed into each other. Forming a single shadow.
Then in another scene, it shows only one member staring out into the sky, with various planets. Similar to the scene of MV Heartbeat. Only this time, one member remains…or his shadow.
