After looking through a few comments, he found some that really spoke to him. The fan-written lyrics were incredible, and Jungkook knew just how to turn them into the most beautiful gift for ARMY!

for every day i miss you
for every hour i need you
for every minute i feel you
for every second i want you

suddenly in the distance
shining like a purple light
you turn around & you smile so bright
reaching out, you take my hand
from then, i know everything will be alright.

While creating the melody, Jungkook said he likes when it “falls into a minor,” referring to the chord progression of the song. He’s so thoughtful about writing songs!

Jungkook showed ARMY how the autotune works while recording the vocal parts for the song. Though he definitely didn’t need it, it showed how seriously Jungkook was taking the song and how he wanted it to be just right.

He even stacked harmonies over his main vocals and added extra adlibs in the background to make it feel more full! Being able to not only create a melody but harmonize with it is a huge talent.

He’d get so into recording that more than once, he went out of frame! Jungkook was totally immersed in his art and it was so inspiring to see.
