And their ‘Contemporary’ footwear
Fan’s Also noticed that it was Just not the outfits that featured traditional Korean elements, looking at the music used, the lyrics are traditional Korean such as from pansori, a form of musical storytelling that originated among the lower classes during the Joseon Dynasty. One of RM’s lines also mimics the sound made by traditional drums, which are used in many forms of Korean music including pansori and samulnori.
This is Pansori. To put it simply, it is kind of like a musical. The women is telling a story by talking and singing to the audience. The man hits the drums called “Buk” and says exclamation words like Eol-soo! (the one namjoon says in the teaser), Eo-i! Eol-ssi-gu-na!@BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/4rJ3mDjDcB
