With each comeback, BTS always tries something a bit new and out of the box.
The group just returned with their giant repackaged album, Love Yourself : Answer featuring the title track “IDOL“. This time around, we didn’t get too much of a preview for the concept, just a single music video teaser that had fans beyond excited.
And they had every right to be!
The music video dropped on August 24, 2018 and it’s definitely one of those tracks that will get you up and moving. “IDOL” is a powerful track that pulls aspects from both traditional and modern. The track itself is backed by a more modern EDM while the rhythm of the Korean traditional instruments and style of exclamations are more like Pansori (a traditional form of musical storytelling from the Joseon Dynasty).
The dance for “IDOL” pulls inspiration from the more traditional and energetic South African styles while mixing in the boys’ usual vibes.
“IDOL” is one of those music video’s that’s bold and colorful, with Korean heritage featured proudly amongst more modern elements. The blend of the two emphasize one another instead of one over powering the other.
