Concept

Popular music website Billboard shared that Jungkook was really inspired by a melody line created by Iyori Shimizu (Back Number) and proposed a new melody. This is how 'Film Out' started. Talking about the song, Jungkook revealed that he really liked working on the song because the melody created by Shimizu is very “fascinating”.

Jungkook added: “I am very happy to be in charge of the theme song for a further scaled-up movie, and I am very much looking forward to the work.  This is a song that I really liked while working, so I hope everyone likes it. It's a ballad song with a sad melody and lyrics, but I think it's a song that can ‘cry’ the hearts of many people.”

On the other hand, Shimizu noted that as soon as he heard the story of the movie, a melody started ringing in his head. He also expressed gratitude toward all the BTS members for their “expressiveness” on the song.

Shimizu said, “I was worried because it was my first time to make a song assuming that someone other than myself would sing, but the efforts of the experienced staff and co-arranger UTA, the exciting exchange with JUNG KOOK, And thanks to the individuality and expressiveness of each BTS member, I am happy that a very lyrical and powerful song has been completed.”

Lyrics

A 30-second snippet of “Film Out” was attached to the film’s trailer to excite the fans.

The lyrics go: “淡々と降り積もった記憶の中で
君だけを拾い集めて繋げて
部屋中に映して眺めながら
何ひとつ消えない君を抱きしめて眠る
君がささやく言葉が  その響きが
行き場をなくして
浮かび上がる君は あまりに鮮やかで”

The rough translation of the song on Google reads, “In the memory that has accumulated lightly, pick up only you and connect. While looking in the room, I hug you and sleep. The words you whisper lost a place to go. You who emerge are too vivid.”
