DJ Swivel revealed that he wrote the song the song in English together with his fellow producers, before the track was translated and sung by BTS. The song was then sent back for some final touches before being released.
He also revealed how the song’s catchy melody started out.
This song started with Candance [Nichole Sosa] playing the piano and guitar in the beginning–she had an initial melody, and I sort of broke it down and rewrote it.
