Mixed Reactions for LILITH by Halsey feat BTS Suga
Minimal Screen Presence of BTS Suga in LILITH Music Video
Halsey originally released Lilith as one of the tracks from the album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power. On June 1, Blizzard Entertainment revealed they would release Lilith as the Diablo 4 soundtrack. They also showed various scenes of Halsey and BTS Suga stepping into a dark, spooky cathedral.
Despite being in the music video, Suga’s fans only catch brief glimpses of the idol on screen. Additionally, the few shots are dark and mainly close-ups which Suga’s fans can hardly enjoy.
Fortunately, Diablo released a behind-the-scenes making of the Lilith MV via YouTube. While Halsey filmed at La Chapelle des Jésuites in Cambrai, France, Suga filmed in Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-Do, South Korea.
From the behind-the-scenes clips, fans finally saw Suga’s outfit fully. Suga appears in black leather pants, high boots, and a cape, giving out the Darth Vader vibe. ARMY wished to see Suga’s appearance in full-leather outfits in the music video.

The First Glimpse of LILITH – Dark and Eerie
Adopting a gothic theme, the song and music video sparks debate among music fans. Some fans claim the song and music video promote satanism with their video concept and lyrics. Meanwhile, others are concerned about the character of “Lilith,” who is known as a demonic figure in Jewish folklore. A theory said that she was the first wife of Adam and was banished from the Garden of Eden when she wouldn’t obey him. Nevertheless, for some, Lilith became a symbol of feminism as she represented freedom and sensuality.
Even distressed netizens has inundated Halsey’s Instagram comment section with concerns. While many claim to be fans of Suga, they are concerned for religious reasons. Some even think the collaboration is following in the direction of cults or the secret society Illuminati.
Diablo 4 Game Storyline and Connection to the Darkness
Diablo 4 is an action role-playing game (ARPG) with a storyline where players will rejoin Lilith as she returns to the world of Sanctuary through a dark ritual 50 years after the events of Diablo III.
Moreover, in the music video, Halsey represents Diablo 4’s main character, the Blessed Mother Lilith. In the game, Lilith is the daughter of one of the three Prime Evils, and she is a demon character.
“Lilith is the daughter of Mephisto, Lord of Hatred, and the sister of Lucion, known to all of Sanctuary as the Queen of the Succubi. Once the lover of the archangel Inarius, her union with him led to the creation of the first nephalem.”Diablo Wiki Fandom.
While Halsey represents Lilith, BTS Suga represents Inarius, an Archangel of the High Heavens.
“Inarius was an Archangel of the High Heavens, once part of the Angiris Council as an advisor to the main council. He and the other Angels and Demons were sick of fighting in the endless Eternal Conflict, so they banded together and left Heaven and Hell with Inarius and Lilith as the renegade leaders. Together, the various Demons and Angels created a world known as Sanctuary and made the firstborn humans known as the Nephilim.
Inarius ruled Sanctuary until the end of the Sin War when he was defeated and given to Mephisto. His current fate is unknown, though he is assumed to be alive.”Genius
Additionally, in the song, Suga sing this part to Halsey:
“Step out of the moment. That’s been trappin’ you in all this negativity of hatred and insanity. Don’t dwell on the past; it’s time to make a change. Look around; believe in what you see, I have returned to hell.”BTS Suga in Lilith.
