BTS (?????) 'ON' Commentary Film : Dialogue

BTS (?????) 'ON' Commentary Film : Dialogue
All right. I mean, it has to be boom, boom, pop. I mean, if you're playing the set, the 204... Right now... It's kind of running away. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've been around to see the transition of music. Where, when we used to have live instruments and bands and stuff like that. And then, when technology came, it kind of wiped everything away. I'm a big fan of technology and I'm also a big fan of live music. And one of the things that I think that BTS does that I'm really excited about is that they blend the two together. Just like music brings people together, BTS seems like, they're in pop music, it seems like they're bringing that back. One should never replace the other. They should always be used in halves and to bring together. And I think that BTS is leading in that field. And that's why, that's one of the things that made me really excited about working with them. They cover issues like mental health and bullying. I think that’s what really sets BTS apart. You hear that music. -They're so popular, it's ridiculous. -People love BTS. They're getting ready to rock the crowd. We're gonna be seeing that all over social media. Do you know BTS? Yes. Are you a fan of the group? Yes. The Billboard Music Awards, I would see them. BTS! That's when I knew like how much of an impact they're making with their music. Even friends that I've talked about and even my own kid when I, I've said, "Hey, I'm...
bts on commentary film dialogue
gonna be doing a recording session about the Echo Bar for BTS." "Really BTS? Really?" 'Cause originally, when we've been reached out to, it was like, "It's a secret band." And then, when I saw the music, I just liked, I freaked out, like jumping around the room. We get to do so much as entertainers and artists, but it's rare to get to work with living legends. I mean, they are young, but they're still, at this point, living legends. Yeah, you know, I like, I like the... you know, what they're doing. And the rapping and the singing. And you know, the messages, they're positive. I have to come to love myself for who I am, for who I was, and for who I hope to be. So, you know, that's what I like about them. I think they aim to contribute to... Their message as a band, it's really cool. Good job! Future studio guy right here. In this recording here, we had some marching band people. We had some people from the Global Jazz Department. We mixed them all together. And it's kind of like what BTS does, right? We mixed them all together to get one great thing. And I think we achieved it 'cause... the tracks are just phenomenal on this project. Nice, you guys killed that. -That was awesome. -All right. There's just one punch we gotta get. I just gotta get bar 24. -Bar 24? -Yeah, that's it. Okay. Music, everything from the beat, the groove which is vibration, and then, of course, you know, a good lyric. You...

know, a good message. It's no one way to do it. That's why you have all these different great artists doing it in different ways. You know, it has an effect on people. -Yeah. -So then, we'll do the same thing. You know, just keep thinking about subdivisions. Yeah. For the next section. Yeah, that tightened it up really good. I think it's absolutely fabulous what they're doing in terms of just really allowing people to be... have this kind of self-esteem. It really talks about songs of joy and hope. Yeah, I really dig them. So you gotta go right here, -or left here, yo? -Left. -Left, yeah. Okay. -Yeah. -It makes a difference. -Yeah, yeah. Absolutely. -Absolutely. -Yeah, raise the roof with the left. -Anybody else need a pencil? Are we good? -Good. All right. So, guys... I would guess... I guess that's just the goal, the overall goal of our groups. I mean, I think that BTS is, they wanna make everyone happy. They wanna perform. They want to leave an impression on people, you know, and improve people. You know, as a band, we want to get out there and get everyone pumped up. We want to get everyone excited. You know, we're not just performing to make money. We're, give them something that can make them happy or make them live better lives. And I think both BTS and the UCLA Bruin Marching Band share that. I, I don't know Korean, unfortunately. Or, I mean, they also sing in other languages. so I don't know very well the language that they...
bts on commentary film dialogue
sing in. But when I see what the songs mean, I can definitely feel how heartfelt it is. And I can feel the emotion that they're conveying through their songs, regardless of the language. Dear America, thank you for embracing us. Thank you for having us. Thank you for accepting us. These seven boys from Korea who are singers in Korean and who have even different looks, speak different languages. But you guys truly proved to us that music transcends the language, looks... Thank you. Well, music, as we know, is a universal language. No matter who you are, everyone can relate to good music. It brings people together. There's power in music like nothing else to me. To me, the arts has... should be a part of our society. 'Cause we all think about technology and finances and stuff like that. I think, music, in general, is like the thing that balances everything out. A few months ago, actually, when I was just going through kind of a rough time. I was just having trouble finding myself, questioning my own abilities, my own passions, my own friends. One day, and the song "Epiphany" really stuck out to me. The words, like, "Love yourself", just like, really touched me. Really about finding yourself and loving yourself before, you know, loving other people. Just unsure of who I was. And hearing that like other people were going through something similar meant so much to me. And so, I started listening to them more and... Yeah. So, they do really mean a...
lot to me now. I think anybody who's listening to this music now as they grow up, it's gonna stay with them for the rest of their lives. If there's a song, or lyric, or there's a beat, or rhythm that you really resonate with, you're always gonna put that on. It really takes me to a different place. So, that whole question about music and healing. Music, how has it changed you? I think they're all kind of related. So, for BTS, I think it's gonna... That is gonna have value for everybody on an individual basis. That really transcends any physical... The healing power of music is definitely something that people need to tap more into, especially as we age. I think it's been since 2016, maybe '15. It might be, it might've been about four years now. And they were only here for the one, the one project. And then, we've done things remotely for them, which has been wonderful. And it's been, it's been great, so glad to be a part of all of it. It's been wonderful. I'm so sad Bang wasn't able to be here. But great to see all of y'all. Well, I think the fact that the cultural bridge, right? We're doing things especially for this, for this project, but the cultural bridge I think, by bringing in something that I would argue is fairly uniquely American, a marching band. In common, other than love for music and the way that music moves people, and influences people, but I think the, the productions themselves are...
really well done. I think he's done an amazing job on the tracks and embracing, too, something that, like I said, is uniquely... American, a marching band. You know, very nice. At the end, I'm proud of you guys. -Nice job. Well done. Good job. -Yeah. -Good job. -Thank you, so nice to meet you. -No, likewise. Thank you. -Thank you. Great. Well done. All right, so we gotta keep -the drums now. -Yes, we gotta go. -Yeah. -Yeah, and we gotta... Music has the ability to really put you in a good space, in a good environment. Really make you feel like you are important and that you are valued in this society, in this world. That you belong in this, in this universe. It's good. So, thanks again, all right? That's it. Does anybody have any questions or comments? -Thank you. -Thank you. So, so, not, not to rush everybody, we got a gospel choir coming in right behind you. You know... Well, again, I'm all about inclusive, inclusivity. A marching band does that. You know? Sometimes, kids that maybe don't even want to play music for a living, but they need some kind, everybody needs to be part of some kind of group. And everyone comes together to make this one thing very special, whether it be a halftime show, or a concert, or whatever. It's the bringing the people together. Making them feel important about... and, and giving them a purpose to achieve and do better in life. You know, I would say music is kind of the body's natural endorphin. It just naturally...
knows how to heal. It knows how to put us back in check. And allows me, a reality check for me. And I need that a lot of times. Because it really does change people's lives, as you can tell. The joy, I think that's why everyone loves BTS and gravitates towards BTS so much. Because they have such a joy and love for what they do that it's infectious. That was it. That worked. That felt good. It's ready. We're like... Again, together. I experienced depression before. Yeah, I experienced depression before. And I didn't know what it was. But the thing that definitely got me through when I felt like I didn't wanna get out of bed or that I didn't wanna do anything, music was always the thing that kept me calm, kept me peaceful. And even motivated me to just get on and keep going. Like I said, I'm inspired by music. And I'm inspired by artists who are genuine, who are real, and who truly love what they do. And they understand the power of music. And BTS, if you watch them perform live, there is so much joy, so much fun, and so much love that it... it really... truly is transcending and it truly is infectious. And so, that's what I gravitate towards. That's why I appreciate what they do. That's why I love what they do. And I think that's why the world loves what they do. Because there is a passion, joy, and love for the arts. The language barrier, for sure, you know, I may not understand everything that's being said, but you...
understand the passion. You understand the concept and the energy. I think the positivity, even though I wasn't understanding the language at first, the positivity touched me. They made an impact before I even knew who they were. So, yeah. Definitely. Definitely. Because there's a lot of people in the US who have never been outside of the US and would never know what K-pop was if they hadn't broken that barrier and brought us into their world. And also at the same time gets you excited for the future of music. And I think that's why it's changing the culture in which how we listen to music and what we listen to here in the States. Thank you! Get over here! -Group hug! -Thank you! My man, bring it in, bring it. -That was so good. Thank you all. -Thank you so much. Thank you so much. The power of music is that it connects everybody. It also is powerful because music can change your situation. You know? And it connects people all around you. And I see that, with, like I said, I keep saying that about BTS, one of the things that I'm excited about them is how they're pulling everybody together. In a time where it seems like the world is going the opposite, so we need people like that. And we need groups like that, that are bringing people together. Not separating them and keeping them apart. Especially at a time in our nation right now where everybody's trying to be isolated. Some of the problems that we have in the world today are gonna take a...
global approach. You know what I mean? It's gonna take everybody to pull together to defeat some of the crises that we're having in the world today. And if you can bring people together, like, I think, like they're doing, I think that that's a step in the right direction, for sure.
