In conclusion, the whole meaning of the HYYH era BTS tried to tell us is related to the journey of life where anything could happen in our life, especially in our young age, youth. There will be times of joy, sadness, sorrow, happiness, anger, doubt, worry, anxiety, and other feelings in life. We would feel those kinds of feelings and emotions during our lives, which made our lives more colorful and beautiful. Even though it might be tough and hard still, we will always try our best to get through that, survive until the end and get what we want.

Still, there is no happy ending for every story. Even though we already tried our best and did everything we can to get what we want, there are times when we finally want to give up and let it go. But it is okay because not everything would go as we want. Maybe from that, we would learn and get something better next time. The most important thing is we should try to enjoy every moment in our lives as best as we can because we only live once.
