How many of us grew up with a dictionary by our side to understand the meaning of big words in the English language or to get a better understanding on syntax (how a particular sentence is constructed)? Let’s face it, no matter how well we speak the Queen’s language, English is neither our first tongue nor did our schools do a great job in teaching it to us (we didn’t have international schools in our days) . But anyone who took an interest in reading and developed a tremendous appetite for novels usually always had a dictionary in order to never miss the comprehension of those big words. Well, what if we tell you that BTS member Suga is no different.
Now we all know that BTS members are not well versed in English language. In fact, most of Korea is not (English does not measure the success of the situation there). And despite their worldwide fan-following growing by leaps and bounds over the years, they’ve mostly stuck to their roots, delivering one K-pop hit after another because that’s what made them famous in the first place. That being said, the band is not oblivious to their growing global fan-base and the same love for ARMY everywhere. So, they are making every effort to connect with non-Korean fans as well, their chartbuster debut English single, Dynamite, last year was their first step in that direction. And he made further progress with his next English single, Butter, which was recently released and is already topping the charts.
However BTS takes three times the effort while crooning the English numbers you prefer because you are unfamiliar with the terminology. An example of this can be taken from Suga’s recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, where he admitted to using the country hack of having a dictionary by our side at all times while growing up. It’s just that they used to do this and still do. Describing how he loved American hip-hop while growing up and even now, Suga confesses that when he was young and still is, constantly referring to a dictionary to better understand the lyrics. does. Suga said that part of his hack for overcoming the English barrier also includes lyrics that non-Koreans can easily understand. Also, whenever possible, he tried to continue to study and improve his English skills.
Well, it shows his love and dedication for the military everywhere, doesn’t it?
