Brace yourselves, ARMY, because we just got the best Christmas gift yet! Jimin has just dropped a surprise song for us to help brighten our holiday season, and we can confidently say that he has succeeded.
Without any warning, ‘Christmas Love’ was posted on the BTS blog and sent ARMY (and us) into a frenzy. And honestly, this frenzy is well deserved. Written by Jimin, Slow Rabbit, and RM, Jimin shows that he has the vocals and, with them, brings emotion into his songs. ‘Christmas Love’ might be one of the sweetest songs we have listened to in a while, and Jimin’s equally sweet voice has us in our feels. As we listen, we’re able to forget the tough time we are going through; for three minutes and 18 seconds, we feel a bit of that Christmas magic.
The blog post also includes the lyrics to the song and a note from Jimin himself. We can’t help but get a little emotional at its meaning and the sweet message. Jimin’s words are very much needed, not only with the current global situation but also in any situation we may find ourselves in as we grow older. Jimin has given us the gift of having those child-like feelings for Christmas again, and we are so thankful that he has dropped this gift.
Hello everyone, this is Jimin.Jimin about his song ‘Christmas Love’
Did you get a good Christmas present?
I really wanted to hear from you, but fortunately, I am very, very happy to be able to do so.
The reason I came here today is why I suddenly heard this bright song in this difficult situation,
I came here because I wanted to tell you a little about the reason. As you can see from the contents of the song
This song is a scene where my favorite snow falls out of my childhood memories.
I sing with my feelings when I first saw them.
As we grow up, it seems that we miss our childhood a lot.
Whether that’s the situation now or not,
I thought I wanted to go back to that time.
The responsibility of something you have as you grow,
That responsibility makes us mature
I thought that it might make us hide our emotions a little.
But I still think we have those feelings.
So it’s childish at least once, but how about expressing that feeling?
I thought it would be nice if that day would be today.
All of you are always worthy of love.
So, even if it’s a little shy than the usual expression
I hope there will be a situation where everyone can enjoy together.
It’s a song that’s far short of what’s written in grandiose,
I hoped that all of you would be happy people and made it hard with one wish.
I hope that I can go back to the old days that everyone remembers for a while after listening to the song.
So, tell us your thoughts! Did you listen to ‘Christmas Love?’ Are you loving the song as much as we are? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @TheHoneyPOP!
