“Epiphany” by BTS

BTS’ “Epiphany” is a wonderful song about self-love. It bears a specific message for people who are suffering from depression and other related issues. The main music video shows BTS member Jin in a contemplative state. He can be seen sitting in a house. He gets dressed and leaves it. The next shots are of him wandering around in heavy rain. Lightning and thunder can be heard in the sky as the camera closes in on his face. His expressions are one of sadness and silent acceptance. He eventually returns home and sees a new day start. He grabs a new coat and heads out again. The music plays against the backdrop of these actions. The video also starts in black and white. It eventually transitions to full color by the time the climax arrives. The lyrics are easy to understand and powerful.

Words like “I’m the one I should love” drive home the theme of the song. BTS are urging people to love themselves. We all go through moments of pain and suffering. However, bad moments are like passing showers. Eventually, they will give way to sunlight. This should give us a sense of optimism.

All in all, ‘Epiphany’ is a much-needed piece that helps people find hope in the darkest of times. Fans and casual listeners will no doubt find solace in this lovely piece.

    I am not an Army, but this song is special. I just accidentally found it yesterday through Instagram. It hit me differently. I found myself contemplating, being sad, but eventually finding solace in the latter part. Also, Jin’s voice is heartbreaking, yet healing at the same time. Thank you for this beautiful masterpiece!

    This song was like love at first sight for me… It’s honestly toooooooo good to be real. The way Jin’s voice kinda glides from verse to verse melts my heart away. “I’m the one I should loooove in this world” and “So I love me” sounds like fragments of heaven. I can’t even find words to describe how I feel each and every time I hear it. I won’t probably trust a person who says that he or she doesn’t like Epiphany… It’s that good!!

    Wasn’t an ARMY until I heard Epiphany. I was listening random Kpop songs until I heard this.. Kind of giving me a different vibe. I searched this song and can’t believe I became so whipped of Kim Seokjin and eventually the whole BTS. God, I can never forget how thankful I was for this song for me to get over my depression. That was January last year but until now, Epiphany still gives me the same comfort that no other songs can give me.

    I wasn’t an ARMY until I heard this from a Kpop playlist on Spotify. Epiphany introduced BTS to me. I can never forget how Epiphany helped me get past my depression last year. This song gave me comfort no other songs can give. Then I became a loyal ARMY since then. ?

    Epiphany is one of the best music of all. And if it is sung by Jin so it’s obviously fantastic. But give you some comfort vibes with Jin’s soothing voice.

    i have a question, does this song also reflect how Jin struggled to love himself (basically like a personal song he wrote about himself, he did also write it right??), or is it just for the story line and the fans???
