korean lyrics referenced from Naver Music .
Written by : boring Rabbit, Ray Michael Djan Jr, Ashton Foster, RM, Bang PD

I can ’ thyroxine believe this is the 6th song I ’ m translating from this album .
I feel like BTS writing style has changed a little spot. In their earlier works, they would use a bunch of references but while they ’ re more numerous, it felt like the songs good promptly linked to these references .
The songs on the Love Yourself album preceptor ’ triiodothyronine seem to use as many references, but the ideas in those references seem infused more subtly and deeper into the songs. sol on first glance, the songs seemed dim-witted enough without besides many references… but the more you listen to it, the more you realize you might have missed gorge .
And then you start to think, “ Am I over-thinking this ? ” Knowing Big Hit, credibly not .
The two obvious references in Serendipity are the poem “ Flower ” by Kim Chunsu and “ The little Prince ” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Of note, the poem that J-Hope was reading on their Run BTS ! Ep 11 is besides by Kim Chunsu .

by Kim Chunsu

Before I called his name
this tune gives feeling of more like, “ Before I gave articulation to his name ”
He was merely
But a gesture.
The time I called his name
He came to me
And became a flower
Just like I’ve given voice to his name
As fitting of my hue and fragrance
Someone please say my name.
here, it is not specific whether the hue and bouquet is supposed to fit the “ person ” or “ my name. ”
internet explorer.
Someone who is fitting to me, please say my name ( eg. touch of destiny )
or :
Someone call me a name that is fitting to my hue and fragrance ( eg. give me a appointment list so that I can exist/become meaningful )
I want to go to him as well
And become his flower. 
We all
Want to become something
Me to you, you to me
Want to become a meaning that will not be forgotten

The he/his here is both male/gender achromatic pronoun. It is the nonpayment pronoun sol sometimes not gender specific .

by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

This koran is identical popular in Korea. I ’ ve so far to meet a Korean who has not read this book as a kyd. I ’ megabyte sure every Korean would watch the MV and immediately go “ The short prince ! ” specially, Jimin ’ s bleary blond hair’s-breadth, the chicken across-the-board ( or the yellow scarf in the book ), and the starry blue flip are reasonably iconic .
Little Prince
I re-read this book for this position but lost the paper where I wrote polish my notes. identical sad…
The book is about foreigner fiddling Prince, who loves his beautiful bloom with thorns, but doesn ’ thymine know how to deal with her when she is at times difficult .
He comes to Earth, only to find out there are thousands of roses in the universe and possibly his bloom is not limited after all. But then he meets a very fresh fox that teaches him that it is not the beauty that makes his rose limited, it is the meter the little Prince exhausted with her that makes her special .

“ People have forgotten this accuracy, ” the fox said. “ But you mustn ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate forget it. You become responsible everlastingly for what you ’ ve tamed. You ’ rhenium responsible for your rose. ”

“ If you love a flower that lives on a star topology, it is sweetness to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers… ”

The supporter of this book is not the prince, but a pilot who crashes in the middle of a defect. He serendipitously meets the little Prince. And he besides, learns how love gives meaning to little things.

“ You – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them…In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night…You – entirely you – will have stars that can laugh. ”

On initial glance the song ’ second lyrics sounds like distinctive love song. Oh, we ’ re destined to be in concert, etc. etc. Sounds like sleep together at first sight .
But because the sung references works of literature that emphasizes that it is the interaction between the two people that gives meaning to the love… this gives the birdcall a very different think of .
Is it truly the fortune of meeting the correct person that is important ? Or is it the dissemble of fostering a relationship that gives meaning between two people ? Do you have to be especial from the begin ? Or can you be just one out of five thousand roses and still be made special by the time you spent together ?

The other contrasting idea of sleep together I found is the idea of what makes you meaningful as a person. Both the “ Flower ” and “ The little Prince ” suggest that you ’ re made more meaningful by your relationship and love with early people. Your universe is made more meaningful by something external to yourself .
obviously, this is very contrasting with evening the album championship, “ Love Yourself, ” which by and large assumes that you have to love yourself first and find think of in yourself first base before you can love others .

Having all these contrasting ideas in a song is all right, of naturally. Everyone can interpret it the means they like and love is such a multi-dimensional thing anyhow where one mind is not mutually single of another .

All this is not a coincidence
Just..just..with how I feel
The whole world is different from yesterday
Just..Just.. with your happiness.

When you called my name
answer to “ Before I called his name ” from “ Flower ” ?
I became your flower
As if waiting for it
We achingly blossomed

can be both “ I became your flower as if I was waiting for it ” or “ As if we were waiting for it, we blossomed ”
Perhaps it’s the providence of the Universe
It was just like that
U know I know
You’re me, I’m you

As much as it’s exciting, I’m scared
Because destiny keeps being jealous of us
As much as you, I’m scared too
When you see me
When you touch me

The world has moved for us
There was not even the slightest error
Our happiness was destined 
Cuz you love me
And I love you

You’re my penicillium (blue mold)
That saved me
Penicillin was discovered from blue mold by serendipity.
My angel my world

I’m your calico cat
That came to meet you 
Love me now touch me now
The motley cats are very very rare, so I guess this reinforces the idea of fortune .
The lyrics are cute because in Korean, penicillium is literally “ blasphemous mildew ”, and a calico cat is a “ three colored cat. ” The wording sounds like a kids song about color objects. In addition to that, “ mold ” and “ cat ” about rhymes .
Just let me love you
Just let me love you
From the time that the Universe was created
Everything was destined
Just let me love you

Let me love
Let me love you
Let me love
Let me love you
