Beyond a music video
BTS, or should we say Beyond the Scene, released a new arrangement of Seo Taiji and Boy‘s classic hit, ‘Come Back Home‘ yesterday, and have just backed it up with not one, but two versions of the music video! CJ E&M uploaded a clean and an explicit version, within minutes of each other earlier this evening.
So far, the track has been received well, with even Seo Taiji himself branding the cover as “impressive”. The rap line, consisting of Rap Monster, J-Hope and Suga pull off some flawless rhymes, and the vocal line (Jin, Jimin, V and Jungkook) deliver some serious back-up!
Combined warning/spoiler alert (although most people have seen it already): the members of BTS don’t feature in either version, and the explicit version differs in the filmed content only, with uncensored tattoos, drugs/pills, blood, and some physical violence. The explicit version is for 18+ viewers!
Luckily, underage ARMYs can still enjoy the regular version of the music video, or stream the audio of the song on various official platforms to support their idols, as well as Seo Taiji‘s 25 Project [Time: Traveller]!

Plus, did you catch the new BTS logo in the MV?
BigHit Entertainment and BTS released a mysterious ‘Logo Animation‘ video earlier today, before revealing that the group have officially undergone a re-branding and emerged with a new English meaning for the BTS acronym: ‘Beyond The Scene’.
The beloved and literal translation, ‘Bulletproof Boy Scouts‘ will still live on, as their Korean and Japanese names will remain unchanged, but this new international identity for BTS is seemingly another step towards maturity for the members, while also being a celebration of the group’s close relationship with their fandom (or at least, that’s what we’ve heard so far!). The new ARMY logo below however, is definitely a testament to the latter.
According to reports, the group’s new brand image has been in the works for over a year, with many of those who purchased the BTS WINGS Concept Book in the last week discovering the new logo printed on the back just today! Did you also spot it in the ‘Come Back Home‘ music video?
