I don’t care 마이크 잡음 금수저 여럿 패:
“The Spoon Theory” is a viral/cultural concept in South Korea. It differentiates the wealth and social status of Koreans into four types of spoon material: gold (금), silver (은), bronze (동) and soil/dirt (흙). This concept is similar to the English idiom “Born with a silver spoon in the mouth."
BTS were known as “dirt spoon” artists. Their music label, Big Hit Entertainment, was a small company in debt when the group debuted. As of 2016, the majority of the label’s ₩35.5 billion sales income can be accredited to BTS' huge success. Now, the group is eating with “gold spoons” instead of “dirt spoons.”
- 버럭해 잘 못 익은 것들 스테끼 여러 개
거듭해서 씹어줄게 스타의 저녁에
J-Hope continues to use the eating analogy here. Though “스테끼” is translated as “steak,” it is also a reference to the Japanese word “素敵” which translates to “great” or “cool.”
“스테끼” could also refer to a card game trick which could lead the players to victory.
Although his unpolished opponents might look cool and play dirty, J-Hope will prevail over his opponents to relentlessly “chew them up” and win.
