Story of “No More Dream”
Featuring a hip hop beat, the story of “No More Dream” by BTS shows hard satire for us, the young generation, who are afraid and confused when making decisions about determining our dreams for the future.
There are many young generations out there that are still hindered by our parents in determining and taking a firm action about the dreams that we have until finally we end up trapped in situations that are detrimental to ourselves and we lose our identity and dreams that we should be able to achieve.
Also, through this song, BTS as well as the songwriters of this song, Pdogg, “Hitman” Bang, RM, Suga, J-Hope, and Supreme Boi, try to convince and provide courage for us, the young generations, to dare to make important decisions in our lives and continue to achieve our dreams. And, most importantly, they encourage the listener to never give up easily and waver when making up their mind. Keep going and reach for your dreams until they come true.
Besides working as a songwriter who helped write the lyrics for “No More Dream,” Pdogg was the producer as well as the rap arranger.
