BTS has released “Lie,” the second teaser for the BigHit Entertainment boy group's upcoming album, “Wings.” The latest short film stars vocalist Jimin and follows the same vein as the first teaser, "Begin."
BTS (Rap Monster, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook) released their second short film, “Lie,” via their agency's YouTube Channel, ibighit, on Tuesday, Sept. 6. BigHit also shared the clip on the company's official Twitter account.
"Lie" opens with Rap Monster reciting another lie from Hermann Hesse’s “Demian: The Story of Emil Sinclair’s Youth,” which says, “My parents’ house made up one realm. This realm was familiar to me in almost every way – my mother and father, love and strictness, model behavior and school.” A view of a mist-covered forest then appears on screen, but when the camera pans out, the image is only a scene from a television. Jimin sits alone in a white, clean room, and there's a camera in front of him and recording him. Scenes from either Jimin’s past or his dream flashes on screen, along with the words, “Tell me the way. Please stop me. Please hide me.” The short film ends with Jimin staring straight at the camera and a line from BTS' song “Save Me,” which says, “I’m locked up inside, I’m dying.”
Some of the scenes in “Lie” appear to be alluding to past music videos of their "Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa" ("The Most Beautiful Moment In Life") series, such as Jimin’s bathtub scene in “I Need U” and his pillow fight with J-Hope in “Run.”
Another notable thing about the teaser is that Jimin can be heard singing a new song, which some are speculating to be the title track for BTS' upcoming album “Wings.” “Caught in a lie/Find back the innocent me/I cannot get out of this lie/Give me back my smile/Caught in a lie/Save me from this hell/I cannot get out of this chaos/Save me, who is being punished,” Jimin sings in the teaser (via @jeonggukupdates).
BTS’ “Lie” comes after the first teaser “Begin,” which was released on Monday, Sept. 5 and starred the group’s main vocalist and maknae Jungkook. On the same day, their agency also confirmed tnat the short films will serve as teasers for BTS' upcoming full-length album, "Wings." Though BigHit has not given an exact release date for the teasers and the album, short films starring Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V and Rap Monster are expected to be released this week.
