July 29, 2019 Photographer 김명중 MJ Kim mentioned @BTS_twt in an interview for his book

Translated by @BTSARMY_Salon

Q. When I read your book, it was overflowing with love for BTS.
A. Right. I love BTS so much. I did three shootings with them, and their attitude on the second shooting was better than first one, and their attitude on the third one was better than the second one. Although they are becoming more and more famous, they have even better manners. Since they had a busy schedule, we got to shoot pictorials and videos all day long. It finished at dawn. BTS looked at me and said, “Thank you for working lively and delightfully from dawn to evening without losing your smile.” They said it very sincerely. It was the first time I have received such a gratitude. They are very rare artists in Korea and global who are wonderful and have a good personality. I was proud when BTS topped the chart in the UK. I’ve seen a lot of people being enthusiastic about the Beatles while on a tour of Sir Paul. Now people started comparing BTS to the Beatles, and I think it’s possible. I love you, BTS!

[Below is extracted from Photographer MJ Kim’s book]

BTS

Like piling snowflakes, I’ve become older and older without noticing and reached that uncle age that you don’t know members’ names of famous idol groups.

However, I know all names of proud BTS.

I’ve done several commercial shootings with them since they are commercial models of one of duty free shops.

Shooting with them has been always fun and exciting since they always work with good manners without change.

At the most recent shooting, we had to proceed shootings for TV and paper on the same day due to their hectic schedules.

Starting in the early morning, the shooting finished after 9PM. After that, they had to shoot the commercial for several hours more.

After the last snap, BTS and I clapped hands with joy as wrapping up the shooting.

Then I heard the words I’ve never heard from any celebrity or model.

“Director, thank you for your hard work shooting until the late night without losing your lively smile.”

This is the power of words that can save or kill a person.

Their small consideration resonated with me deeply, and I became the no. 1 uncle fan of BTS.

*Purple is the translated lyrics.

I kick out the door yeah I kick out the door
Go grab the mic and I let out the sore
This my fanmail wanna give out my heart
This an archive I just record the flow
Come to my studio magic happens
Two step chillin’ this feels classic
Ain’t no job with no stress no pressin
So baby let’s go seatbelts are fastened

반딧불 같은 flashin’ lights
우릴 스쳐가는 flashin’ nights
꼭 아파야 해 그냥은 안 돼
시간이 지나면 웃겠지만

Like a firefly flashin’ lights
Passing us flashin’ nights
Must be in pain Can’t skip it
We’ll smile after a time

뭔가 보일 때까지 일단 걍 달려
괜찮아 내 수고는 내가 알어

Until you see things, just run
It’s okay, I know my effort*

*T/N: Quoting Seokjin’s word “You’re the only one who needs to know your effort.”

We keep ridin
The whole night
Hol’ on tight

We keep all the party in this room all night
We don’t wanna put it on the brake hold tight

해 뜰 때까지 더 계속해 all night
영감아 기다려 널 잡을게 all mine

Until the sun rises Keep going all night
Wait for me inspiration I’ll catch you all mine

All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night
All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night
All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night
All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night All Night

I still have a Dream
여전히 작업실
지나가는 사람에게 물어봐 1타 가수 누군지
코 앞이잖아 그래미
This is for Real
TV 나와 하는 돈 자랑들은 이젠 그냥 귀엽지

I still have a Dream
Still in a studio
Ask people on the street, who is the top-tier singer
It’s just around the corner, the Grammys
This is for Real
Flexing money on TV is now just cute

가끔씩 이 모든 게 꿈은 아닌가 싶어
해가 뜨기 전 어둠은 꽤나 짙어
때론 네가 걷던 길 위엔 시기와 시비가
앞서 걷던 사람들의 발자국 보다 훨씬 더
많을 수 있다는 사실만 넌 알아둬
이제 선택은 네 몫이야 what you gonna do?

Once in a while I wonder if all this is a dream
Before the sun rises, the darkness is quite deep
Sometimes there might be even more jealousy and picking
Than steps of the people who walked in front of you 
Just let you know
Now the choice is yours what you gonna do?

Aye she calls me charming need an army
Marching for your love I’m a sergeant
I’m not from this planet a martian
For you I go the hardest
Can’t stop when you get me started
You gonna make me park the Ashton Martin
Tints on the windows I don’t do no talking

Oh girl I told you from the go
I need you to stay with me loyally and faithfully
Ever so gracefully touching my soul
I know that you pray for me
Trying to make a way for me
Girl you know I’m a always hold you close
Never let go nope you
Never let go uh ug of you

All or nothing for ya love I’m a risk it all
If it’s not your name coming up on my phone
I won’t pick up the call
Not at all
Love the way you take it off
On my rocket you taking off
Yeah we den got love involved love involved

We keep all the party in this room all night
We don’t wanna put it on the brake
hold tight

해 뜰 때까지 더 계속해 all night
