BTS' new video directed by Jungkook as part of his GCF series gives an insider's perspective of the band
BTS debuted the new video as a part of travel vlog style short video series directed by its member Jungkook on December 27.
BTS' Jungkook has been dabbling in the art of direction for sometime, and recently he shared yet another edition of his Golden Closet Film series, 'G.C.F. in Helsinki'. The K-pop band has been pretty busy since they returned from their short break. From Suga's new collaboration with Halsey titled 'Interlude' to the band announcing that they will be part of the New Year's Rockin' Eve performance in America, a lot has been happening in the band's world.
Amidst all of this, Jungkook has gifted fans a video which will help them see the band from his eyes. The more than 3-minute long video has two tones - one warm and one cool, with each visual tone portraying a different emotion. For instance, the cooler visuals of the video that plays out to the tune of Talos' 'To Each His Own' lean toward introspection.
Each of the band members takes in their surroundings, breathe in, with all of them donning a faraway look. As if portraying that at that moment, they are drowning in their respective thoughts.
The video that dropped on December 27 is also an intimate portrayal of the friendship between the seven members of the band -- RM, V, Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, Suga, and J-Hope. One of the two things that fans love most about BTS is the relationship between the band members. Little things that they do for each other, and the way they support each other, is something that fans talk about all the time.
The other being the charm that the members exude. Of course, the band's music speaks for itself. So when the video transitions into a warm tone, there is a lot of laughter, a little bit of naughty fun - all of which is captured well in the video.
This video came as a surprise for fans who were mostly looking forward to the band's 2019 KBS Gayo Daechukje performance which was held earlier on the day the video dropped. The performance marked the band's last performance in their home country this year, so the excitement of fans was understandable.
The last G.C.F. was released in December 2018 which portrayed the members rehearsing for their epic 2018 Melon Music Awards performance. Fans speculated that Jungkook shot the latest video in Finland when the band traveled to the country between November 12 and 18 for a photoshoot.
