Fan Review: BTS drop 'Yet To Come' from their anthology 'Proof' with a promise to ARMYs
The seven BTS members gather together in a desert full of flashbacks from their past songs and references to their nine-year-long journey
The wait is finally over and the biggest boy group has finally made a comeback with their first Korean anthology album, 'Proof' which was released on June 10, at 1 pm KST (12 am ET), and the song has already taken over the world. The boy group dropped their 45-track album, 'Proof' which chronicles the boy group's nine years in the music industry. With songs right from their debut to their newer English hits like 'Dynamite' and 'Butter', the album is more or less an introduction to BTS for all their new fans with their best hits.
The album is BTS' first comeback in 11 months since the release of their hit July single, 'Butter', and was released with a music video for the title track, 'Yet To Come' which goes by the tagline, 'The Best Moment Is Yet To Come'. The music video was premiered globally at the same time and opened with Jungkook, the maknae of the group sitting alone in a desert as he looks on at the other BTS members seated on chairs. The music video features the boys in multiple outfits including one common white outfit as well as solo fits that are a call back to BTS' past videos.
'Yet To Come' seems like a promise from BTS to fans
The title track 'Yet To Come' (The Most Beautiful Moment)' shares BTS' promise to fans that despite their past being the best that they have done so far but the members assure fans that their best is actually what will follow next. Each of the four BTS vocalists opened the single one by one starting with Jungkook, followed by Jimin and then by V (Kim Taehyung) who delivered an all-English line and next was BTS' oldest member and vocal Jin. With rappers RM (Kim Namjoon), Suga and J-Hope in charge of the creation of this medium-tempo alternative hip-hop genre song, the song feels like BTS' gift to ARMYs.
The video for 'Yet To Come' is full of references from the old hits be it the jeep that was a part of BTS' 2015 video 'Run' or be it the ferris wheel that was seen behind Jungkook in 'Spring Day'. The references to the large statue with wings as well as how Jin covers V's eyes this time the same way V had done to Jin from 'Blood Sweat and Tears' are unmissable. The boy group has also made a connection to their past as they chose to sit in the same order from music videos like 'Save Me', 'Just One Day', and many others. The train carriage with the number 20219 with RM standing by is a fan favorite and can be seen in 'Yet To Come' as the entire music video hits fans with nostalgia.
As a shock to many fans, the music video ended with a yellow school bus appearing in the middle of the desert as the boys make a dash to it. The bus is the same one BTS members first got down from in their debut music video for 'No More Dream' and seeing the members get in the same bus seems like a perfect end to their entire nine-year-long journey.
