What matters most in the world of entertainment is the impact it brings to the audience, and the power it holds to spread that impact.
There is absolutely no room and no chance to get tired of listening to BTS, who is also known as Bangtan Sonyeondan in Korean, and Bulletproof Boy Scouts in English. Comprised of seven super talented individuals who are consistently breaking records, they continue to be a global phenomenon.
In my previous article, I talked about my love for the BTS Rap Line, and now I’d like to share what I love about the BTS Vocal Line.
The four BTS vocal line members are Kim Seok-jin, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung aka V, and Jeon Jungkook. Their voice timbre and texture differ from one another, bringing their own distinct colours to their music, so I listen to each, or all of them depending on my mood. My poem entitled “My Medicine,” talks about listening to seven gifts. I’m referring to BTS in that poem, and how they serve as my medicine, enabling me to continue this sometimes painful life. It’s a very emotional poem, and as shown in the verse below, that is how I perceive each BTS member in terms of music. The three powerful poets that rhyme and feel are the rap line, and the vocal line are as follows: The crooner is Jungkook, the soulful is V, the balladeer is Jin, and the sweetest honey is Jimin.
I close my eyes to the beat;
Carefully listen to these 7 gifts:
The sweetest honey,
And the three powerful poets that rhyme and feel.
Your magic is real,
Your sound don't play tricks,
You are my medicine.
Here’s some of the things I love about the BTS Vocal Line:
Jin is my ultimate bias from the vocal line when it comes to vocal quality. His singing voice is so raw, rich, and passionate; a voice with full and engaging timbre that flows easily, and drips with emotion and fire. He has a killer vocal range that sends me to a safe haven away from the harsh reality of life. And has the deepest most meaningful songs that allow me to reflect on my own perception of myself. His voice and music are so impactful that every time I’m having anxiety or a sudden panic attack, I listen to Jin’s ballads to calm myself down.
Jin is known as someone who doesn’t think much because he lives in the moment. Instead of regretting yesterday, or worrying about tomorrow, he cherishes the present time the most and doesn’t take himself so seriously. But when it comes to music, his songs uncover a different side of him that are concealed behind his daddy jokes and contagious laughter. His solo songs are Moon, Tonight, Awake, Epiphany, Abyss, and they are all my ultimate favorites!

Jimin is someone that I feel like I want to protect because he looks so fragile, but when it comes to voice texture, he adds spice to the overall music arrangement of any BTS song. He has the most unique voice that sends a sexy vibe, so whenever I listen to his songs, I feel like I want to do something wild and free. He also has a killer vocal range that exceeds the average range of a female, so it feels so unfair that I can’t sing any of his tracks smoothly, even if I want to sing them. I know I can’t sing, but he makes me realize more that I absolutely have no talent in singing. The good part is, that he enlightened me to drop my dream to be a singer and instead, focus on what I can do best; he has given me the gift of ‘acceptance’ (insert laughing emoji here).
Jimin is known as the BTS member who’s petty and blunt when he talks, and has the most caring and thoughtful nature. But what I love the most is his adorably cute personality, and the sexy side of him hiding underneath. When it comes to music, he carries a seductive and androgynous voice texture that’s oozing with sex appeal, conveying a sense of persuasion. His solo songs are Filter, Lie, Promise, and my ultimate favorite, Serendipity.

V has a voice that makes me want to sleep because he makes the best lullaby songs. His voice is soulful and sometimes husky; it’s tender when it needs to be, and tough when it’s making a statement. He has a killer falsetto that’s highly emotive and efficient when executing riffs and runs, and he expresses music through a deep voice that has a rough, but appealing nature.
Known as the BTS member who has a very unique personality, he can sometimes be perceived as the weird one, because he reacts or do things differently than a normal person would do. And this makes him interesting because you never know what he’s going to do. He is so hyper, but ironically when it comes to music, he’s my go-to whenever I want to relax and fall asleep. His solo songs are Inner Child, Stigma, Singularity, and my ultimate favorites, Sweet Night, and Winter Bear.

Jungkook makes me want to fall in love whenever I hear his voice. His voice texture is so clear that it carries music so easily with a well-balanced production of sound. His voice has a lot of mixed qualities and I will probably run out of adjectives in describing it because it is so flexible. Depending on the type of song, he can be angelic, charming, sexy, charismatic, or hypnotic. In short, he has a golden voice. He has the most confident and stable voice that ripples with warmth, and instantly catches attention, which explains why he is the main vocal in the BTS vocal line.
Known physically as the strongest BTS member because of his complete dedication to fitness, his sweet side hides underneath all the muscles, and works its way out through his music. Regardless of the song genre and message, his voice makes me feel like I’m being serenaded, so whenever I want to feel loved, I listen to his tracks. His solo songs are Euphoria, Still With You, Begin, and my ultimate favorite, My Time.

Each BTS vocal line makes me feel all types of emotion, so they never fail to give me goosebumps when they sing together. My ultimate favorite unit songs are: The Truth Untold, Lost, House of Cards, and Zero O’clock. If you want their solo and unit songs on Spotify, you can check them out here: BTS Vocal Line.
