Ethereality: Mikrokosmos

Erica Ng

Last but certainly not the least is ‘Mikrokosmos’, a new song by BTS from their Map of the Soul: Persona album. Although it is only a recent favorite of mine, its upbeat melody and touching lyrics instantly caught my attention. The word “mikrokosmos” essentially means “little world”, which branches from the idea that everything is the epitome of the universe and the universe is within everyone.

This song has also recently been used as the concert ender for BTS’s Speak Yourself Tour. The incredible emotions that are invoked as the opening melody plays and as fireworks fly into the night sky are ones that make this song one of a kind. I hope one day I am also able to experience these unforgettable moments.
