\"Why BTS?\" Because BTS\' messages stand on philosophical ground.
This is the founding principle of Philosophizing About BTS, author Cha Min-joo\'s thorough exploration of BTS\' messages through the lenses of 20 great names in philosophy, including Nietzsche, Hegel, Deleuze, and Adorno.
\"This book exposes the philosophical ideas of the young generation in upbeat manner, challenging the notion that philosophical talk must be serious… The author guides us toward a fresh, new angle on BTS\' lyrics and away from exhausting philosophical overinterpretation. Rather than advocating vague optimistic views, this book delivers a message of hope that empowers the reader to rise from overconsumption, discrimination by differentiation and academic credentials, indifference, and social violence. Above all, it is easy and fun to read, but never light.\" — Lim Jin-mo, music commentator
