    The title track "DNA," which expresses the youthful and ambitious love heart of youth, carries the message that we were both fatefully intertwined from the beginning, and that we were one from DNA.

    Based on electro-pop, the combination of addictive whistles and acoustic guitar sounds offers an upgraded sound that is apparently bulletproof but different from the existing team color.

    In particular, the composition of the song, which moves from the Drop part after Break Down to the Future Bass-based EDM sound, maximizes the powerful performance of ' BTS'.

    Seonghwangje is a communal ritual for the village that has been handed down from the gray area of Seonggok-dong, Danwon-gu, Ansan. This village ritual is considered to have specific characteristics in that it has the characteristics of a holy emperor.

    Seonggok-dong Jehommeori Seonghwangje is a village rite held by the residents of the village to pray to the guardian deity for good health, good health, and good harvests. The shrine houses Hong, the last king of Silla, and his mother-in-law, Ahn, as a village Religion dating back to the reign of King Seongjong of the Goryeo Dynasty.

    It is handed down in the form of village ritual, and residents of about 10 villages in the vicinity, including Anmal, Doranmal, and Beolmal, are participating in the rite in early October every year.

    The Samhyeon Yukgak is accompanied by Janggun, Sinjang, Daegam, Daeshin, and tightrope walking.

    There is a legend that during the reign of King Seongjong of the Goryeo Dynasty (982-1997), the inner poet, Seo Hui, met a storm on his way to Song Dynasty, and he built a shrine and carried out his mission safely to release the sorrow of the spirit (Rain Hong and Ahn, the mother of King Kim Dae-dae, the king of Gyeongsun) that appeared in his dream.

    Seonggok-dong's gray-headed holy emperors have been held twice a year to greet the spring and autumn shingok. It is said that the Seonghwangje Festival was much larger than the Seonghwangje Festival, which took several months to greet the new song of autumn.

    The Hoemori Seonghwangje is of important value in that it is a joint ritual with a village nongak band in the form of the emperor.

    - Gut can be largely divided into Seotgut and Sajeonggut, which means a general rite performed by a shaman, and Sajingut is also called Sajanggyeong, Dokgyeong, and Yangbangut, which are given by the name due to the local and behavioral characteristics of the shaman sitting and reading the scriptures.

    Sajingut is presumed to have been formed by mutual relations with other Religions such as Buddhism and Taoism. It has a long history as a branch of Korean shamanism. In particular, Naepo Sajingut, including Seosan and Taean, has a strong tradition, making it a distinctive Sajanggut shamanistic area in Korea.

    - Naepo Sitting Gut has been inherited to the present day with a deep influence on the origins of the northwestern part of Chungnam (Naepo area) and folk (musok) culture such as Pungoje Festival and Sansinje, which borders the west coast of South Chungcheong Province, and is designated as an intangible cultural asset of South Chungcheong Province for preservation and management due to its value, including the transmission and utilization of local folk culture.

    The construction of Seokguram Grotto was begun in 751 under the leadership of Prime Minister Kim Dae-seong during the reign of King Gyeongdeok of the Silla Dynasty, and was completed in 774 (the 10th year of King Hyegong’s reign), whereupon it was given its original name of Seokbulsa Temple.
    Buddhist art reached its peak during King Gyeongdeok’s reign, which spanned the middle period of the Silla Period, Besides Seokguram Grotto, many other cultural treasures were built during this period, including Bulguksa Temple, Dabotap Pagoda, the Three-story Stone Pagoda of Bulguksa Temple, and the Bell of Hwangnyongsa Temple.
    The artificial stone grotto was built halfway down Tohamsan Mountain with pieces of white granite. The principal statue of Sakyamuni Buddha was placed at the center of the grotto, and forty statues of various bodhisattvas, Buddha’s disciples, and guardian kings were carved on the surrounding walls, though only thirty-eight of them remain. The rectangular front chamber of the grotto is connected to the round main chamber by a corridor. The exquisite ceiling of the main chamber was made with more than 360 flat stones. The architectural technique used to build this grotto is unprecedented in its excellence. There are statues of four guardian deities on both the left and right sides of the front chamber, which functions as the entrance to the main chamber. Carved on both sides of the entrance to the corridor is a statue of the Vajra Guardians, while the narrow corridor is decorated with the Four Guardian Kings carved in pairs. There is an octagonal stone column on both sides of the entrance to the round main chamber. The Principal Buddha is placed slightly off center toward the back of the main chamber. From the entrance, the walls of the chamber are filled with the images of two devas, two bodhisattvas, and ten arhats. Standing behind the Principal Buddha is a statue of the Eleven-faced Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, perhaps the most exquisitely carved statue found inside this grotto.
    Every single sculpture contained in the grotto may be considered a masterpiece of East Asian Buddhist art. The list of masterpieces includes the principal image of Buddha, which was created with mature carving skills; the Eleven-faced Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva with its magnificently carved face and body; statues of valiant warriors and the majestic Four Guardian Kings; and the supple graceful statues of various bodhisattvas and arhats, each of which displays a distinctive individuality. In particular, the serene appearance of the Principal Buddha enshrined in the main chamber deepens the mystical atmosphere. The extremely natural appearance of the Principal Buddha seems to present to all living people the ideal model of a man harboring a profound and sublime mind deep within him and easily pass to them his everlasting mercy. Seokguram Grotto is a masterpiece of the golden age of Buddhist art in Silla. What makes it stand out all the more is its perfect combination of architecture, mathematics, geometry, Religion, and art. Seokguram Grotto has long been preserved as National Treasure No. 24, and was jointly registered as a UNESCO World Heritage in December 1995 along with Bulguksa Temple.
