Once upon a Hallyu

Welcome, first time with Hallyu ?


Hallyu Hymns

Welcome to my little Hallyu bubble
Where my soul escapes and rises from rubble
Enjoy the wordplay upon which you’ll stumble
Hallyu fans, let’s get ready to rumble

Happy 1st anniversary to me.

Cipher: a secret or disguised way of writing; a code.

That’s right. This month, I’m blowing my first candle as an ARMY.

Looking back on the past year has brought me nothing but absolute joy and serenity. With every passing day, I met the most incredible people and the number kept rising: While being born midst the most incredible squad that I consider my soulful family and that taught me how to be a decent ARMY, I also met more amazing fellow ARMYs: from the ones that couldn’t pick a bias and eventually ended up being wrecked by Jimin, to others that support my ultimate bias and earned my love and respect in the process; because through this very bias I happened to rest my head on the most supportive shoulder, for which I am eternally grateful.

Of course, as we flew with our beautiful wings in 2017 alongside BTS, our fandom still managed to receive horrendous comments, accusations, and rumors. When none of this satisfied their ugly hearts, free hate was always on the table. This being said, and although I tried to stay passive for as long as I could, this time I picked the other side of the coin: this time, I became passive agressive.

Without further ado, as words are many and time is money, this is my contribution for BTS’s 4th anniversary: this is A.R.M.Y Cypher.


(Welcome, first time with ARMY ?)

You know, errthang starts with an A

And this one goes to all you haters , Aye

Whether you like it or not, Bangtan will always slay

Do you hear us?

We said: Our bulletproof boys are here to stay


Now, wait a minute though, Whatcha looking at hoe?

Is you lost? Did you rail away from your fandom, foe ?

Quit taking care of BTS, they have us for that

Promote your faves instead, redirect your attention lads

Rookie, MAMA, Shorty : now we snatched a Billboard too

Thanks but no thanks, we’re international, boo

(So long, fools)


Chong jojun balsa, bitch

Crawl back to your den, snitch

2!3! Breathe, choke

Sorry bae for your emotional stroke


Apologetic turned Problematic, sass

Righteous ignoring your helpless cries, pass

Mature for not calling out your faves, class

Young forever, used to be a few, now a mass

 [VERSE 2]

A R M Y, this cypher goes to all prying eyes

We learned from the best,

when you won’t give it a rest

We’ll use it in our favor and bless you with a diss

Wait what, no dissing allowed ?

 We missed the memo when our boys were being disavowed

You wronged us and assumed we’ll take a bow

Well get this antis, it’s payback now

(It’s a vow)


Chong jojun balsa, bitch

Crawl back to your den, snitch

2!3! Breathe, choke

Sorry bae for your emotional stroke


Apologetic turned Problematic, sass

Righteous ignoring your helpless cries, pass

Mature for not calling out your faves, class

Young forever: used to be a few, now a mass

 [VERSE 3]

Plagiarize this, plagiarize that

Riddle me this, have you ever heard of facts?

When shit happens, we humbly apologize

Great minds think alike but small minds tend to criticize

And creativity, like idiocy, is infinite

Miss me with your bullshit, our success is imminent

We’re not here to dethrone, stealing crowns is primitive

Bighit is our label, spare us your initiative


No more laying low, we’re here to let you know

We’ll slay your existence, once twice thrice in a row

Sit your asses down, enjoy the Hitman show

Ayo ladies and gents, y’all nothing but John and Jane Does

P.S: this piece is humbly dedicated to all the individuals that ever wished BTS harm with a thought, a comment or an action. Thank you for allowing me to write this cypher.


Control verse


Controversy, Ctrl C, Ctrl V
Call it what you want, I rest my case
I’m from both sides and I disagree
You ain’t paying me, where is the disgrace ?
Listen up y’all, just save face

Hey you, adorable MC ?
Death threats aren’t cute, you don’t represent me
Stop claiming the throne, you’re juniors
The boys are walking in the footsteps of their seniors

What about you, real MV players ?
You lost the name the minute you touched the mud layer
Swallow, the pride is earned not stolen
You’re the wise fandom, why is your ego swollen ?

Please, 제발 하지마
Both groups are suffering, 설마
Don’t pretend, just stan your faves in peace
If you don’t like this, feel free to Ctrl Z.

You like ? I don’t.

Dear Bingu,

I finally allowed myself to come to terms with your departure
It was difficult, it was painful, but I had to proceed with the rupture

I have so many things I want to tell you, but the words keep failing me
It’s probably because I am too overwhelmed to phrase it properly

How was your first day ? Your first week ? Your first month ? 괜찮아 ?
I want to be strong and patient, then again I don’t wanna

But I should, the countdown has started, I have to be ready
Be safe and healthy, come back to us already

From a forever newbie VIP
To a forever precious Tabi,

Until whenever.

ARMY’s curse


It starts with a feel, then a pound, then a punch
Your heartbeat races and your breathing rhythm gets your lungs crushed

Trash, you feel ill, you lose the will
To do anything, the thrill
gets to you and the drill
gets you hyped, you’re still alive
But inside you already died
Seven times in a row, you’re on a roll

Day after day and Valentine’s day being a couple of weeks away
Will you make it ? Will you survive ?
You’re driven but at the same time you’re tired
This is ARMY’s curse, enjoy the ride.

A Bangtan milestone


Say, where do I begin ?
3 new records in less than a week
Not acknowledging their milestone would be a sin

Where is the lie though ?
Where is your project? Who are your faves?
Mine are right here, killing me slowly, don’t mind if they do

Your hate is a vicious illness, a stigma
They’re topping the charts, tearing your delusional hopes apart
Bulletproof royalty, reinventing art
I wish I could spell it for you, but I rather see you get lost in the enigma

Don’t you get it ? Music is their first love
You should learn to love too, your heart really needs it
They breathe it, feel it, never conceal it
Their tunes are divine, sent indeed from above

Every written song is a form of reflection
Their inner thoughts, their feelings, their expectations
The growth, the confusion, the sweet temptation
If you ask me, the album’s a new faith delivered in a lection

I’m not done here, can you handle their heat? Because I cried MAMA
Their new concept slayed me to the core
Wrecked my heart, mind and soul
Take a minute to enjoy this. If not, spare me the drama

The lyrics sent chills down my spine, kept me awake
It’s almost 2 AM, but I cannot rest my mind
My feelings are tangled, have mercy, be kind
This is real music no doubt, how about yours, doesn’t it feel fake?

BTS, Thank you for the blood, sweat and tears
Whenever I feel Lost, I will keep your music near
From the soothing ballads to the savage cyphers
Am I wrong to feel alive, mesmerized, hyper?
I’m a 21st century girl enjoying a musical godsend
I will spread my wings and fly high with the wind
Two, three, to many more good days

ARMY meets BTS.

The one and only, Kwon Jiyong.

August 18th, a dragon was born
Flame so hot, a flowerboy with thorns
A rising star since before he was ten
At age 18, Kwon Ji Yong left his den

Along with BIGBANG, K-pop turned royal
VIPs around the world instantly became loyal
Back to our heartbreaker, a king without a crown
Who needs an accessory when the crown is the crowd

A fashion icon whose throne is the world
A composer, a producer, can’t describe him in one word
A rapper, a singer-songwriter, his talent is a ravage
The way he writes lyrics, pure art : what a savage !

29 years later, he’s still slaying hard
He’s all over the place, you can’t even count his awards
G to the D, he’s driving me out of my mind
Indeed G-Dragon, you’re one of a kind.



Once upon a time, on a summery day
A rising BigHit boy group blew my mind away
Seven members by the name of BangTan Sonyeondan
I love them all equally yet stan only one 

Uri leader, Namjoon whom I call Ramonie
He can be badass, sexy but also cute and funny

Then my boy Taehyung, dat vitamin V
His smile is hypnotizing and I bet that you agree 

I also got a sweet tooth for Yoongi, my daily sugar dose
His gaze gives me goosebumps, a shaky overdose

Shoutout to Hoseok, my bundle of hope
One glance when he dances shows how his moves are dope

Where my Seokjin at, that precious Genie in a bottle
One minute he’s a foodie, the next one he’s a model

And then you got Jimin, my precious gem
His stage presence is a killer, his aura is a mayhem

Leaving the maknae for last, Jungkook, that sweetest Kupcake
Once a cute bunny, now a fine man, he’s giving me a heartache.

Letters to Tablo

You left me mesmerized,
When there was no more hope for me
Your songs pierced through my heart endlessly

You’re a true inspiration,
Your snaps bring me joy
Your lyrics are pure slayage,
Your music is a cure.


Forever a wounded Blackjack.


First, you were a Crush; but I couldn’t stop myself from Falling in love with your music.
You were the Fire in my heart, you made me Happy, so I said to myself it’s Gotta be you.
Then, one day and out of the blue, I found out that you did Go away. Do you know how much It hurts ? Do you know how Ugly I felt ? I kept fighting the Lonely feeling, Missing you all the way. But now I don’t care anymore, Can’t nobody make me love a girl group again the way I love you … I am still waiting for you to Come back home.


I thought you were back, I thought 2ne1 was back
For 20 minutes, all I saw was pitch black
I’m a latecomer, thought the party was over
Then MAMA gave me hope, thought I had the luck of a clover
A four-leaved clover, turned three with one’s departure
But 2ne1 still fits, 2 n’ 1 was my closure

Then an american debut made us patient enough
More interactions with Darabit showing support and love
And then slowly but surely, you came back
Every tweet, every post retrieved every hope I lacked
Soon enough, I started anticipating, waiting,
A happy ending needs few plot twists in the making

But a happy ending, it sadly was not
I woke up to this shocking news, in my stomach I felt a knot
And I’m still feeling it, denying it but it’s there
And everytime I think about you, it will remain there
Don’t worry we’re okay,  Blackjacks are used to the pain
We’ll stay strong for you and wait for a sunny day

B to the C to the D, 역시 Queens
Be well and thank you for the memories.


Goodbyes are like a band-aid.

We think they heal deep cuts
But they only cover the wounded spot
Underneath, the scars remain
Underneath, lies the pain

The sorrow and I are one
The ache cannot be undone
The words seem harder to find
Only memories are left to rewind

This isn’t goodbye, it’s only farewell
Be it together or apart, always be well
B to the C to the D, you remain 2NE1
You’re Blackjacks’ pride and we’ll forever be one

One last call, don’t go
Don’t forget your fandom, no
We trust that you did nothing wrong
Until we hear from you again, 놀자 and 안녕.
