BTS is back with the poignant theme. Their newest single, ‘Yet to Come’ from their anthology album ‘Proof,’ shows how much they’ve never forgotten their roots. BTS is applauded for being humble, and ‘Yet to Come’ is the answer for people who declare that every comeback is the best and there’s no going forward.
In the MV, the members were clad in white. The color white resembles a blank slate. It symbolizes a new beginning, a fresh start. V also holds and brings a rose to his lips. The rose may be a metaphor for the Smeraldo flower, the flower used as a theme for their album Love Yourself. Rose represents love and passion. The name is also the past tense for the word ‘rise.’ In the song, BTS said they’re back to square one. “The Best Moment is Yet to Come “are the resounding lyrics. It’s a promise that they’ll be here and together with ARMY for a long time.
The MV exhibits some of BTS’ most memorable tracks. They featured Spring Day with the old train and carousel swing ride. You can also interpret that the old train also represents the song Run. There are also old containers that may remind you of the classic MV. The boys riding the truck emanate their younger selves in the MV Euphoria. Suga standing on the piano surrounded by roses may remind you that, sadly, he loves music more than you and of the record-breaking single Fake Love. You can’t forget the Old Bus! That’s their origin story, being the set for their debut single ‘No More Dream.’ The desert setting is also reminiscent of the bopper Permission to Dance. It also will remind you of their setting for Love Yourself: Her. There’s also an angel’s statue with half of its body buried in the sand—a truly romantic reminder of their sultry theme in Blood, Sweat, and Tears.
At the end of the MV, the members ride the bus, clad in white suits and bright smiles, as they look out of the window and share glances at each other. All in all, a very heartwarming and expressive MV.
BTS remains a versatile act, and many of their fans, ARMYs, have seen them grow from teenage boys singing in No More Dream. A septet from a small, then-deemed insignificant company led them to be bullied on-air and behind the cameras. Things changed when the band debuted on the Billboard 200 with their album Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Part 2.
They’ve conquered award shows, doing all-kills with a smile, sometimes in tears as they admit that they’ve wanted to stop but chose to keep going. BTS became the first band to be invited to the UN General Assembly, UNICEF, and recently, the White House. Their lyricism is praised for using it for self-expression and encouraging people to love themselves. They’ve supported many advocacies, including environmentalism and anti-racism.
Since their first success, many naysayers have predicted BTS’ downfall. BTS remains firm, drawing passion from their love for music and ARMYs, creating music and advocating their beliefs in every setting. The White House is their starting point.
As BTS said, and many continue to believe and look forward to, the Best Moment is Yet to Come.
