About “BTS - IDOL (Romanized)”

The lead single, IDOL, featured in the last part of BTS’s ongoing project Love Yourself: 起承轉結, released on 24 August 2018.

By combining traditional Korean musical elements, including janggu with modern hip-hop groove, the group blends modern and traditional Korean music instruments into one rather than pure pop music, creating a refreshing and surprising beat.

In the music video, members are dressed in traditional Korean Hanboks, echoing traditional themes of the song, such as Chinese landscape painting, Lion Dance, and a Chinese pavilion with the word “囍”, an auspicious word during marriage in traditional Chinese Culture to bless the newly-couple.

A version of Idol featuring Nicki Minaj is available as a digital single.
