p.s

I'm attending a listening (and buying) party on SH for BTS Official at the moment.  ARMYs are amazing!  It's difficult to read all the comments... so I just listen to all the songs from Indigo + the main song Come Back To Me.

‘Beef’ Creator on Forming “Korean Avengers” for RM Music Video and Watching BTS Member Bounce Back After Accident on Set

 

Emmy-winning director-writer Lee Sung Jin on directing the music video for RM's “Come Back to Me,” a beautifully shot six-minute clip that feels like a short film.

 

Beef creator Lee Sung Jin says he’s enjoying the opportunities his Emmy-winning Netflix series has brought him — including his latest project: directing a music video for BTS superstar RM.

 

Lee collaborated with RM on “Come Back to Me,” a beautifully shot six-minute music video that feels like a short film. The song, which begins with an acoustic vibe and includes whistle sounds and guitar riffs, was released Friday and is a departure for the BTS member. The song appears on his upcoming sophomore solo album, Right Place, Wrong Person, out May 24.

 

“It’s so sneakily catchy. I heard it once and then all day long I was humming it to myself. I’m like, ‘Man, that is an earworm. It just gets in there,’” Lee says of the song.

 

“I was really surprised because it [had] such a different aesthetic and tone and a different side of RM that I hadn’t seen before,” he adds. “RM is known for his rapping, obviously all things BTS and I’m a huge BTS fan. I saw him at the Rose Bowl so I was like, ‘OK, I know he’s going a different direction’ and I knew that going in, but I had no idea it was this kind of direction. It was so refreshing and unexpected and I got so excited at the idea of coming up with a music video for a song like that.”

 

Lee called in some creative heavyweights to pull off the video, including art director and production designer Ryu Seong-hie (Memories of Murder, Oldboy) and cinematographer Kim Woo-hyung (The Little Drummer Girl, Assasination). The video also features an all-star cast, including Pachinko actress Kim Minha, Emmy-nominated Beef actor Joseph Lee and Kang Gilwoo from The Glory, among others.

What was going through your mind when you were putting this video treatment together?

I was kind of blue skying it at first and I think in my head I was still initially thinking of it more as a music video. I think I was pitching a lot of dance numbers or narratives that involved dance. I think after a couple failed attempts, it quickly dawned on me that they want to really go for it on this one. They wanted to actually tell a story and that is why they had reached out because I know RM was a fan of Beef and I think he was really interested in trying something new, [and] we just kind of putting aside the dance aspect, almost even putting aside the music and tapping into what the themes of the song actually are and what kind of story that we can tell that feels true and relatable, but also kind of mysterious and open to interpretation at the same time. It took a lot of conversations where we were sharing stories back and forth, sharing personal things, both on his end and my end. Then we arrived at a strange story about a man that is trapped in the past, present and future and seems to not be able to leave his own home.

 

There’s a good amount of acting in this video — what was it like working with RM in that aspect?

You’re always a little nervous when you’re working with these giant global superstars. Are they going to want to rehearse? Are they going to take notes? RM was game for everything. He was there for long hours. First take of the very first scene, he bent down and his head hit the camera and it was a giant gash on his eye and immediately I thought, “Oh great, I’m going to be deported immediately because I’ve just scratched this national treasure.” To his credit, he went to the hospital, got stitched up, came back and he was ready to go. He was so versatile and open to direction and I think he was also pushing me. He would come and check the monitor and be like, “Oh, I think we can get that one a little bit better.” He has an incredible team behind him too. 

 

“I think everyone really came together for the idea and it really felt like we were assembling the Korean Avengers,” Lee says. “I am so thankful to them for taking the time. I know music videos are always a little bit tough and a little bit of a grind, and the fact that they showed up and gave such incredible performances, I’m really thankful.”

 

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lee talks about working with RM, how the performer quickly recovered after bruising his eye on set, returning to Korea since elementary school to shoot the music video and his upcoming work on the Marvel Studios film Thunderbolts.

BTS’ RM Reveals Full Track List for ‘Right Place, Wrong Person’ Solo Album

The 11-song collection features collabs with Little Simz and Moses Sumney, as well as tracks entitled "Groin" and "Nuts."

By Gil Kaufman 

 

With just a week to go before BTS RM releases his second solo album, Right Place, Wrong Person, on Friday (May 17) the singer finally revealed the full track list for the 11-song LP.

 

The album (out May 24) described in a release as a collection of “alternative genre-based tracks… that reflect a raw and host presentation of RM’s distinctive sensibility, aesthetics and beliefs,” will feature collaborations with British rapper/singer Little Simz on “Domodachi,” and singer/guitarist Moses Sumney on “Around the world in a day.” In addition to dreamy first single “Come Back to Me,” the album contains the title track as well as “Nuts,” “Groin,” “Heaven” and “LOST!”

 

“Come Back to Me” features lyrics by RM, as well as guest musicians OHHYUK from South Korean band HYUKOH — who composed and arranged the song — and guitar and bass from Kuo of Taiwanese band Sunset Rollercoaster and contributions from singer/songwriter JNKYRD and San yawn of Balming Tiger.

 

 

Other contributions come from Kim Hanjoo of South Korean band Silica Gel, who produced “LOST!,” and alt jazz duo DOMi & JD Beck, who helped with production on “? (Interlude).”

RM recently released the trippy, seven-minute-long video for “Come Back to Me,” which was written and produced by Beef creator Lee Sung Jin. In it he croons, “Come back to me/ Like you used to/ Now, I could see/ What a life is about/ I told you I’m fine tonight/ Staying good/ Spring always been here/ I will sleep in her eyes,” over acoustic guitar and whistling in the clip in which he plays several different roles.
