Jungkook’s “Euphoria”: The MOST Meaningful Song
Also, if you wonder which BTS song is the MOST meaningful for Stray Kids Bang Chan, the answer will be: “Euphoria” by BTS Jungkook.
During yet another VLIVE Chan’s Room, Stray Kids Bang Chan discussed about “Euphoria” by BTS Jungkook. In the video, he stated that “Euphoria” was the song that truly gave him strength. That is why when he was feeling discouraged or when things didn’t go as he had planned, Stray Kids Bang Chan would listen to BTS Jungkook’s “Euphoria”. Then, he would feel so much better.
“It’s BTS sunbaenim ‘Euphoria’. First, the lyrics are just so beautiful. I think it’s a song that really, REALLY gives me strength. The word ‘Euphoria’ is—whenever you listen—it makes you feel really encouraged. It’s a word that motivates you, and when you listen to the song, it gives you lots of energy.
So, when I’m working—or if things don’t go the way I had imagined, I would listen to this song, and I’d feel very, VERY good. It makes me feel so much better.
And when I get sidetracked, it helps me get back on my track and focus on what I’ve been doing.”Stray Kids Bang Chan.
I didn’t know I needed to start off my morning with Bang Chan listening to “Euphoria” and talking about how it gives him strength and how Jungkook is such a good guy until it actually happened and now I feel at peace. pic.twitter.com/dOssX2IpYV— Crystal Bell ❣️ (@crystalbell) April 28, 2020
