Who’s BTS beefing with?
Fast-rising seven-member Korean Pop boy band BTS just released a diss track by its rappers RM, Suga and J-Hope today (June 10), entitled “Ddaeng,” (or “ding”) an onomatopoeic word meaning incorrect.
While the song arrives three days ahead of their fifth anniversary together, it turns out that the track is actually a playful troll upon themselves, addressing how far they’ve come despite the animosity they’ve faced.
As you recall, the group made numerous headlines ahead and after of the 2018 Billboard Music Awards as they quickly rose on the charts and took home the award for Top Social Artist.
Additionally, the track, produced by Suga uses a trap beat with the rap trio touching on their unequivocal come up and dominating the K-Pop genre, regardless of the haters.
During the group’s early years, the rappers continuously encountered naysayers within South Korea’s Hip-Hop scene, donning them as typical idol rappers.
Additionally, the track features a plethora of double-entendres; including the title which is an onomatopoeic word, emulating the sound of a “bell,” similar to “ding” in English.
