ARMY Experiences And Reacts To BTS' Suga's Hard-Hitting

BTSSuga has blown everyone away with his impactful comeback trailer “Interlude: Shadow.”

The group has a tradition of beginning teasers for their new albums by having one member release a solo track and MV, with the song then included as the intro for their album. As BTS prepares to drop their album “Map of the Soul: 7” on February 21, Suga got things started off right by sharing “Interlude: Shadow” on January 10 at midnight KST.

While their fans ARMY don’t always know when they’re about to get hit with a new release from BTS (giving the whole fandom “midnight KST phobia”), this time around the group gave a heads up with a comeback map that serves as a teaser schedule.

Knowing the comeback trailer was on its way, ARMY collectively tried to get ready before its release and trended #ShadowIsComing at No. 1 worldwide on Twitter as they waited for 12 a.m. KST.

Suga’s trailer, named the “Yoontro” by fans after the rapper’s given name Yoongi, turned out to be a raw, honest, and powerful roller coaster of a track that deals with the dark side of fame, struggles with ambition and identity, and more.

Following its release, several hashtags and topics have been trending worldwide as fans tweet their reactions and praise for Suga’s new song and MV.

ARMY is sharing their interpretations of the MV with some insightful posts.

Fans have highlighted how the themes addressed in the song are ones that Suga’s been talking about for a while by reminding everyone of impactful quotes from the artist.

ARMY detectives have also spotted possible connections and references to many of BTS’s previous releases. Some of the most clear references are to the intro off their 2013 first mini album “O!RUL8,2?” and to RM’s intro for “Map of the Soul: Persona.”

The topic also has parallels with one of the concepts of their 2018 album “Love Yourself: Answer,” which tackled the encroachment on personal space that comes with fame.

Many have noted how the aesthetics and cinematography of the MV for the track are powerful and chilling.

While the track and its topic might feel overwhelming, ARMY’s still being as hilarious as always.
