4. Dimples

“Serendipity” is a solo song sung by Jimin; he even has a music video made for it with over 37 million views on YouTube.

“DNA” is the most popular song on the album, sung by all the members of BTS, and they made a very colorful, energetic, and beautiful music video for it that has over 134 million views. It was #1 on iTunes in over 29 countries. They also released teaser trailers for the music video, which were very popular trending videos on YouTube for awhile.

“Skit: Billboard Music Awards Speech” is a 1:47 speech they gave while receiving their Billboard Music Award, which was received by them in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 21, 2017. BTS was so grateful that they won this award, they traveled all the way from Korea to America to go to the Billboard Music Awards just because they were nominated. You could tell they were very happy about the outcome of them winning.

“Mic Drop” is a song sung mainly by the rappers of the group: Jhope, Suga, and Rap Monster. This is a very popular song on their album, because of its strong hip hop influence, which is very different than the rest of the album. It still fits in though. Rapper “Rap Monster” (or Namjoon) has revealed in an interview that this song was inspired by former president Barak Obama’s mic drop after his speech. (This song has been rumored to have a music video coming soon)
