South Korean septet BTS have a wonderful relation with their fans, who call themselves the ARMY. While the fans celebrate their birthdays and other important days in the lives of the K-pop band members, BTS also never forgets to give back to them.
December 4 marks the birthday of the oldest member Jin and the ARMY has been busy showing their love through placards, subway hoardings and social media campaigns. Jin also had a return gift in store as he released a new single called ‘Abyss’.
The dark lyrics of the track speaks about dealing with your inner demons and the anxiety of being at the same place even after you have traversed a lot of distance, as if you are walking in circles. These deep words have been beautifully arranged with synths, guitar strums and a bit of piano. Jin’s voice melds perfectly with the instrumentation and gives the ballad the correct amount of softness.
According to the credits as posted on various sites, Jin has taken part in writing the lyrics. BTS leader RM, BUMZU and Pdogg have also contributed to the writing. The production of the song has been managed by Pledis’s BUMZU, who is a popular name in K-pop for producing hit songs. The solo artist is responsible for producing most of label mate SEVENTEEN’s discography as well. Pdogg looked over the additional production and is known for having produced several BTS tracks.
Jin has also written a letter to fans on his birthday which is available on Big Hit’s blog. According to the translation provided by Do You Bangtan, Jin spoke about his feelings of self-doubt and how he wondered if he deserved so much love. He received counselling for his condition and thought of expressing his feelings to his fans via a song and thus came ‘Abyss’.
