Sartorial Geek recently partnered up with The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick to bring back 5 Fandom Friday! You can see all the prompts for 2020 here! If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s (downloadable content) to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick.

10 Healing BTS Song Lyrics

10 Healing BTS Song Lyrics

Most K-Pop isn’t open about mental health, mental illness, or personal struggles, and that’s where BTS is different. One of the biggest reasons I love BTS is their incredible lyrics that touch on aspects of mental health and mental illness. Their music videos speak volumes even with a language barrier. Their canon Webtoon, The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt.0: Save Me, dives into the mental health of their alter egos as well and lends a hand to their narrative of healing, loving yourself, and moving forward.

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite lyrics from BTS’s songs that have been healing for me. Whether I was deep in depression on these days or just needing a little reminder that I’m going to be okay, BTS was able to touch my heart, and I hope that some of these songs and lyrics can help you as well.

Top 10 Most Streamed BTS Songs

Top 10 Most Streamed BTS Songs

While I’m still really sad about not being able to attend BTS’s concert due to COVID19, I thought today would be a good time to share ten of my most streamed BTS songs! I gathered these from Spotify and Spotify.me (most known for giving a year-end review of your streamed music for 2019). I don’t really have a way of putting these in a true top 10 order so consider that these BTS songs are in no particular order.

Spotify Playlist: K-Pop Work Out

Spotify Playlist: K-Pop Work Out

I’ve been focusing on my health journey for over 3 years now. It’s a lifelong commitment, one that has been difficult, but rewarding. It was hard to get over the numbers on the scale and focus on my health instead of how small I could be. Working out with a personal trainer for over a year gave me confidence in the gym and the knowledge of how to work out safely, when and how to push myself, and helped me improve my relationship with food.

I’ve had to find ways that keep my accountable and excited to keep on this journey. One of those ways has been music. On the days I saw my trainer, I’d rock out on the way to the gym or listen to music while getting in a ten minute warm up. When I was on my own, I found it was best to create playlists so I didn’t have to stop what I was doing to find the next song to keep me on track.

Discovering K-Pop: Do you know BTS?

Discovering K-Pop: Do you know BTS?

I started dipping my toes into K-Pop last August when I heard “Waste It On Me” by Steve Aoki & BTS which led to me falling into an ocean of Blackpink songs. I completely bypassed BTS somehow despite loving “Waste It On Me.” Yeah… I don’t know either! Not to worry though, I did eventually find myself back in the arms of BTS, but until then, I did what I always do when I want to know more about something: I turned to Twitter!

I was given so many recommendations including a master YouTube playlist from Mel in Anime Land that had so much early K-Pop for me to try out. Unfortunately, a lot of these songs aren’t on Spotify so I made a much smaller YouTube watch list of songs from Mel’s wonderful and extensive list. I even had some individual songs recommended to me from some of my blogging friends! Then, like the universe had heard me, a few of my fellow bloggers shared their K-Pop playlists and favorite songs. Before I knew it, I had fallen down a rabbit hole of amazing Korean/English lyrics, sweet vocals, and beats that lifted me up.
