The Year in Review, Day 11
It’s the eleventh day of a 23-day celebration, revisiting some of 2023’s best podcast episodes and writing! Today’s theme: BTS!
Here are some of my BTS-themed podcast episodes from this year!
“BTS Book Recap”
“BTS Book Recap (Part 2)”
“Ten Years with BTS”
“D-DAY Deep Dive”
“K-Pop Talk with Max Cho” (where he talks about his and his client’s experiences working with Jimin!)
Here is my essay about the themes in SUGA’s (aka Agust D’s) D-DAY!
“D-DAY can be interpreted as a warning and a reminder of the risks of a ‘choose your own reality’ future; it advises people to not fall for pitches of idealistic ends coming via focusing more and more on individuals’ beliefs and ideals. Just like Agust D reminds people to not ‘mistake freedom for self-indulgence,’ he warns people not to conflate singular experiences with full-picture truths. The keys to understanding and insight lie in communication, in tangible connections and visible openness.”
Here is my speech about BTS’s music’s personal impact on me:
“I fell in love with many books that I never would have picked up were it not for their endorsements, and I firmly believe in the power of books to educate and inspire. Through literature and music alike, BTS opened up doors for me to new worlds of expression, solace, and community.”
