Boy band BTS’ Jimin was the second to be featured in the K-pop group’s “WINGS” short film series Tuesday.

Rap Monster’s English narration, borrowed from Hermann Hesse’s “Demian,” opened the clip saying, “My parents’ house made up one realm. This realm was familiar to me in almost every way. Mother and father, love and strictness, model behavior and school.”

Following these coming-of-age lines, this second short film titled “Lie” showed Jimin seated in a pristine white room with a surveillance camera. Sudden eerie audio tracks are played in the visual sequence.

Then come shots of colorful pills, falling backwards into a bathtub and a white hospital bed, symbolic of oppression and suicide attempts.

“Show me the way, stop me, make me breathe,” reads a white Korean sentence against a black backdrop.

Jimin bites into an apple before the final words appear, “I am dead, locked up in myself.”

The video garnered 2.9 million hearts as of Tuesday, 3 p.m.

Before Jimin, another group member Jungkook had premiered the series’ first short film titled “Begin.”
