In the song ‘Girl of My Dreams’, the late rapper and Suga's lyrics touch upon their love and affection for their significant others exposing their deepest feelings. WRLD raps, “Paradise when I'm around you (I'm around you)/ These feelings brand new (Feelings brand new)/ Lean when you fall, need your, need your love/ A million miles, you would walk for me/ All four oceans, you would cross for me.” Suga too penned a heartbreaking verse in Korean leaving the BTS Army asking for more. The song even managed to enter the top 5 on US iTunes charts within hours of its release.
