This book truly surprised me as I thought it is a light reading book, like any other book that I have found. Why I have such a thought? Perhaps, it is because I literally thought the book is going to explain about Behind The Success and that is it. Pardon of my ignorance, this book offers more than that surprisingly!

The book offers you in depth discussion about their socio-critical lyrics, Behind The Story of MV and additional videos (e,g, concert DVD, online installation videos), and analysis o

The most interesting part about BTS Art Revolution was how the book started out with the most obvious place to for a material written about a musical act begins - lyrics and music videos. From there it progresses into a discussion of social frameworks and artform and elevates discussion to the levels of principles and platforms. It then closes it with the introduction of frameworks that apply itself to the concept surrounding BTS.

This is a classic depiction of the journey of an ARMY. It starts f

You may have heard of BTS, a seven members boy group from South Korea, that is taking over the world.
“BTS, Art Revolution: BTS meets Deleuze” is the only existing english-written book which analyzes BTS’ artistic production from an academic point of view, giving it value and meaning.
Not surprisingly, it is also the only book that, although not sold by BTS’ company, was publicized by Bighit with a tweet in the official account.

The author, Dr. Jiyoung Lee, aims to analyze the so-called "BTS phen

Sometimes, we need time to understand art in its revolutionary forms.

I decide to skip the appendix of this book because I am not in a state of mind to complete and digest the heavy content.

I may return - who knows?

I believe the book is a good read for students in the field of media and Hallyu studies as it touches on the current BTS phenomenan. The book does not confined with those field and it offer rooms for other readers to read and gain knowledge in the Kpop world. The appendix itself could spark the interest of the reader in the subject of discusssion and it is worth a read for everyone who enjoy music and cinematography of BTS.

Fascinating look at Deleuze’s film-philosophy connecting to the “network-image” multimedia reality of today and coming-into-being future. Establishing BTS’s phenomenon as cultural seismograph, 이지영 (Lee Ji-Young) explores the social, artistic, and political changes we are rapidly experiencing in the advent of the internet and social media. Interesting observation on the present and future of art and art form - particularly of images - in our radically shifting and evolving Digital Age landscape.

Perhaps its a 3.5 read. The first Chapter is really insightful and good! I devoured it! Truly great! But the second Chapter about the importance of technology and the connection between the music videos was a little off for me. It was worth my time but the second part could have been better executed in my opinion.
