September 1 is an exceptional day with the release of the RnB track of Balming Tiger (Omega Sapien, BJ Wnjn, Mudd the Student) featuring Kim Namjoon (BTS RM), ‘Sexy Nukim.’
The mysterious cinematic teasers of ‘Sexy Nukim’
Balming Tiger describes themselves as a ‘rising multinational alternative Kpop band’ which provides diversity in the Korean music industry. ‘Sexy Nukim’ is their first new collaboration single in a-year-and-a-half
The official teasers of the collaboration kept it brief and mysterious. From the video teaser, we know that it would be something menacing and dark. However, we got to know only a little of what Kim Namjoon’s part would sound like.
“We wanted to show ‘Asian sexy’ and ‘Asian cool’ through the music and visuals of the new single,”Balming Tiger

Released on September 1, ‘Sexy Nukim’ MV by Balming Tiger featuring Kim Namjoon (BTS RM) has surpassed 3.6 million views with more than 829k likes.
The R&B track has the psychedelic vibes yet seductive from Balming Tiger’s world. From the start, it’s full of the soothing tones of BJ Wnjn,
“우리 모두 섹시느낌, oh
Communicate, show me 눈빛, oh”
Meanwhile, the collaboration with Kim Namjoon gives creamy vibes – where the rhymes and trance-like music blend effortlessly. Fans are flabbergasted by how clever Namjoon is in writing the verse with his Korean-English language skills. He uses 굴 [kul], means ‘Oyster,’ which sounds like ‘cool’ in English, referring to the previous line (fresh).
“Maybe you wanna be fresh
Fresh like a hell of a 굴, boy”
Not only that, Namjoon’s skill in writing lyrics with rhyme is proven unmatched in this song, especially how he writes his part,
“You shoulda known that you owe me
난 느낄 틈 없지 lonely, 24 hour
Man you just gotta be sorry
Yo shit is sour”
The combination of sexy growls of Balming Tiger alongside Namjoon’s smooth voice is a 4-minute masterpiece!
What is ‘Sexy Nukim’ about?
“It’s literally a ‘Sexy Feeling’ (in Korean). Two very simple-looking words met and a strange title was born. This word also touches the artistic ideal that we think. We think that every new creation appears when you twist something familiar. I think our art is also the aesthetics of twisting, just as the two words we thought were familiar meet and give a strange feeling. The song makes the concept of ‘sexy’ appear as it appears or has a different meaning. It could be external sexiness, it could be internal confidence, the lyrics say what ‘sexiness’ is.”Balming Tiger via DIY
