They also talk about being seen as a real person and not just a ‘trendsetter’ or their success. Everything is true.

All Day (Feat. Tablo)

This song has a lot of meaning for RM as well as his fans as he got his inspiration to start his career from Epik High, the group that Tablo is a part of. Tablo is a Korean-Canadian hip hop recording artist, songwriter, musician and record producer. Tablo is best known as the leader and producer of the veteran Korean hip-hop group Epik High, and the founder of the independent music label HIGHGRND (High Ground), which housed the bands Hyukoh and The Black Skirts. This song feels like an insight into his thoughts on being an artist and how it’s the same everywhere he looks and he’s no longer alone and it’s about controlling and following an algorithm rather than looking for entertainment.

Forg_tful (feat. Kim Sawol)

This song is a poignant reminder to enjoy the simple moments of our lives and not the big, flashy activities that just gather dust at the end of our lives. RM asks questions and sad lines as he forgets about all the simple but beautiful things in his life as he gets lost in the glittering world of fame and recognition. Kim Sawol adds to his experiences as he reminisces about his childhood.

The song, by Paul Blanco and Mahalia, seems to be a cry for the real ones as they try to hold on to them in the world of beauty.

Paul Blanco’s true self has another person, his lover and calls him to be close to him so that he does not forget himself.

Change pt.2

This is one of two songs where it’s just RM. In this episode, RM talks about a toxic person no longer in his life and while he’s glad they’re gone, the feeling of change is a hard pill to swallow. He affirms that with all the changes he has had in different areas of life- friends, professional life etc. It’s a way to show that he’s not the same person he used to be.


This song gives us a glimpse of RM’s thoughts on feeling lonely in a room full of people. Being one of the most famous singers in the world, RM feels like an island, surrounded by deep and fierce waters.
