mono series : seoul
designed in 2018: While this song is seemingly upbeat at first listen, I distinctly remember noting the lyrics “I love you Seoul, I hate you Seoul,” almost as if having some sort of back and forth arguments with one’s self which is why I ultimately chose the concept of ‘confliction’ for this song. This main aspect of this pin was inspired by the han river that Namjoon frequents. I remember in one of the interviews, one of the questions asked to Joon, ‘What outside of BTS makes you happy?’ and one portion of his answer was riding his bike alongside the Han River, so I wanted to incorporate that somehow because I know it’s a place that is important to him. I decided to do a backscene where he was walking to show contemplation. Because it’s often when we are in deep thought that we play scenarios out in our mind to ourselves, but it’s also often when we can come to resolutions as well. (Initially, I was going to include a bike in the design, but later scrapped it bc it would have been too detailed for my liking) Also included a small nod to the Love Yourself series that can be seen on the mural on the wall to his right as well as a taxi cab that made a cameo in the lyric video of Seoul.

[ about the series ] : The main inspiration behind this pin series was my love for the playlist mono. by BTS' RM (Joon) Most of the designs are based off of things that I took from each song on my first listen though along with with a lot of heavy influences from Kim Daily. The design sketch process started back in October 2018, and I finished in Jan 2019! This series and playlist in general mean a lot to me, so I’m super excited to share this project with everyone and I hope you guys enjoy them as much as much as I do!
