Unfortunately, they find out that the boy already has a girlfriend which is played by BLACKPINK’s Jisoo before her debut.

Hi Suhyun’s Song Meaning
“I’m Different” emphasizes that the girls are different from other girls. They won’t just sit still and wait to be noticed, and they would make a breakthrough because they are special and extraordinary.
Some of the meaningful lyrics from the translation are, “A girl like me isn’t so common, I’m different, I’m special. Don’t compare me with other girls.” It clearly indicates that the girls are different from other girls which makes them confident that they will catch the boy’s attention and heart.
iKON’s Bobby’s rap states that all of the girls are the same but he is a special person. Regardless, it doesn’t remove the main interpretation of “I’m Different.” The rap part of Bobby translates to, “All the girls are the same. I’m a poacher and you’re all foxes. Bet you never seen an arrow like me, with just one wink, I live in your heart, right?”
