A project inspired by BTS’s song “Whalien 52.”
The project was inspired by the BTS’s song “Whalien 52,” which is about the world’s loneliest whale. The 52-Hertz whale is said to sing at a frequency substantially higher than any other whale species of 10-40Hz.
The song was written as a metaphor for those who grew up feeling alone, alienated, and as if they were never heard or understood. Moreover, the song was included in the group’s album “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2,” released in 2015.
Moreover, Whalein appeared in BTS’s song “We Are Bulletproof: the Eternal” MV and “Dream On” MV.
Many fans compare it to the beginnings of BTS that debuted on June 13, 2013, where many underestimated their music as they debuted under a small label named Big Hit Entertainment, now HYBE Corporation. However, although they were considered an underdog K-Pop group, they worked very hard to get their voices heard in the music industry.
Now they’ve proved that their efforts were fruitful as they have survived to stay in the music industry for eight years since their debut. They also have been singing and creating lots of inspiring songs that people loved and have received countless awards.
BTS hits No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 with single “Butter.”
Recently, BTS’s new single “Butter” hits #1 Billboard Hot 100, and this marking them as the only group that hits multiple #1 debuts for the fourth time.
