Explanations:
¹ Elastin is a Korean shampoo brand; “shampoo (I) gets rid of dandruff (you guys)”
² 턱걸이 (pull-up) in Korean has two meaning: (1) pull-up (an exercise), (2) barely succeeding at something; “make them do something challenging and watch them barely make it and fuck themselves up”
³ “Two different things with one mouth” is something that has been traditionally tabooed for men in Korea. There are even old sayings such as 남아일언중천금 (男兒一言重千金; a real guy’s one word carries the weight of a thousand pieces of gold). It is obviously an outcome of gender-biased prejudice, but is still widely used. Some would jokingly call a man who changes his word “a woman.” With that said, “girls call you unnie” because “you” said two different things from one mouth. “Since you spoke two different things with one mouth, you’re not a real man. So, I’m going to treat you as a woman, and those girls will call you unnie.”
* Lee Kun-hee is the chairman of Samsung Group
⁴ Hongdae is an abbreviation of Hongik Daehakgyo (University) and also refers to the area nearby. Hongdae area is known for its indie music culture, clubs, arts, and so on. A lot of indie artists, including hiphop artists, hold their concerts, which are described in a derogatory manner as “Hongdae entertainment show”, in this area. ‘힙수니 (힙순이 = 힙합hiphop + 순이 soon-ee, a common female name in the past),’ which means hiphop fangirls, seems to be a counterattack to some rapper(s) who said that BTS is followed by 빠순이 (= 오빠 oppa + 순이 soon-ee). 빠순이 (pronounced as bbasooni) is a demeaning word referring to hardcore female fans of male celebrities.
⁵ 개폐인 can be broken in two ways: (1) 개/폐인 (廢人): a fucking wasted person, (2) 개폐 (開閉)/인: who/that is open and shut (given the previous sentence, ‘I open and close the door,’ this is an intended double-meaning)
⁶ “You can only talk dirty but I have an actual ability write lyrics.”
⁷ 5 gwang (five brights) is a way of collecting points in a Korean card game called Go-Stop or Hwatu (Hwatu is also the name of cards themselves). It’s similar to having four aces in poker.
** The last line ‘Six shots got me feelin’ 2pac’ is indeed taken from A$AP Rocky’s ‘Wild For The Night (ft. Skrillex, Birdy Nam Nam),’ ‘Six shots got me feelin’ like Pac.’ Six bullets, six snakes, and six shots might all refer to the other six members of BTS who empower RM.
⁸ 별거 can be interpreted in two ways: (1) a special thing, (2) separation (別居). A happily married couple would not separate, but the real message is “you don’t have anything special.”
⁹ 천상 여자 is a colloquial term (with the correct term being 천생 여자) referring to a woman with qualities or appearance traditionally associated with women: modest, quiet, kind, good at cooking, and so on.
¹° 촌장님 can be broken in two ways: (1) 촌장/님: head of a countryside village –nim, (2) 촌/장님: a blind person in the countryside
¹¹ He pronounces 혹 (hog) almost as 욕 (yog), which means swear word. 꼰대 is a slang word for an old man who is stuck with his own values (usually of the past) and tries to teach/govern young people’s behaviors. 족발(jokbal) is a traditional Korean dish consisting of pig’s feet cooked with soy sauce and spices.
*** Reference: lyrics from Forever by Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem; “Last name Ever—first name Greatest”
¹² 갑, which will be further explained later, can be used to refer to someone in a superior position. 깝 is a slang describing behaviors so energetic and overly enthusiastic to the extent that they’re almost annoying. 밥, meaning rice or food, can be used to describe someone who’s inferior or something that’s too easy. 짭 is a slang that means fake.
¹³ The first 적 (敵; jeog) means enemy, and the second 적 (籍; jeog) means somewhere one belongs to (or is registered under). While 적 까 is translated as ‘reveal where you belong,’ it’s noteworthy that 적 (jeog) and 좆 (jot; dick) sound similar. As explained in the previous line, 까 (original form: 까다) means to bare, which makes 적 까 sound similar to 좆 까 (bare your dick), which basically means to fuck yourself or fuck off.
¹⁴ 나가리 (nagari) is a Japanese-originated slang for being canceled or no longer considered as a valid option, and so on. 노가리 (nogari) is dried little Pollack that is often consumed as snack.
¹⁵ 노답 is a slang that combines ‘no’ and 답(dap; answer) and is used to describe a situation or a person where there is no answer/solution.
¹⁶ Here, OP interprets 갑질 as 갑 (best) + 질 (vagina), given that it follows ‘the best woman.’ 갑질 itself is a slang (with 질 meaning behavior or activity), which is widely-used in recent years due to improper power abuse of chaebols and the resulting social outrage. It means a behavior of a person in a superior position forcing another person in an inferior position to perform unreasonable requests.
¹⁷ 임 (im) itself means dear (lover). By replacing 갑 with 임, 갑질 becomes 임질, which essentially means gonorrhea. If we, however, stick to the word composition of 갑질, take 임 and 질 apart from each other, and interpret 임 as 임 (壬) in the천간 system and 질 as behavior/activity, 임질 becomes a behavior/activity of 임 (壬), which means someone who is sly and adulates his superiors. It’s also the second to last in the hierarchy order.
¹⁸ 자비 can be interpreted in two ways: (1) 자비 (慈悲): mercy, (2) 자비 (自費): one’s own expense. A jobless person would not be able to afford anything out of his own pocket, but the real message is “I don’t have any mercy for you.”
**** Stitch is a title character of the Lilo & Stitch and is an illegal genetic experiment created by mad alien scientist.
