“Who’s That Girl?” ARMYs’ Theories About The Mysterious Girl In BTS Jimin’s “Like Crazy” Music Video
BTS‘s Jimin recently released his new album FACE with the title track “Like Crazy.”
The video unsurprisingly gained attention from ARMYs worldwide, who couldn’t get over the unreal attention to detail and how much it showcases Jimin’s talent, visuals, and creativity.
In particular, aside from Jimin, one person in the video that has gained attention is the mysterious girl. Throughout the video, Jimin and the girl nearly meet several times…
Of course, it isn’t surprising that some ARMYs had a hilarious reaction to the girl’s appearance, joking about how fans held their breath at the possibility of Jimin’s interaction with her.
I know we all held our breaths at this part LMFAOOOOO pic.twitter.com/almngNWE9w

While that didn’t happen, ARMYs shared that the girl has an important meaning within the music video.
Yet, while many had hilarious reactions to the girl’s appearance, others unsurprisingly found a much deeper meaning in the music video. Many believed that rather than just a person in the music video, but actually meant to be Jimin’s reflection.
Omg , the girl who pulled jimin was his other “reflection” like she was supposed to be the metaphor ????? JIMIN IS A GENIUS & COOL HE IS !!??? pic.twitter.com/heBef1xcXR

In the video, the girl wears the same outfit as Jimin in the concept photos.
Many fans believed the reflection is meant to embody the conflict Jimin has between his masculine and feminine sides.
While Jimin has always gained attention for breaking gender norms and being himself, including showcasing the softer side to his personality…
ARMYs pointed out that the video could show that he’s coming to terms with accepting that side of himself, which is why he finally met the “female” half of his identity.
So the girl in the MV was playing the hardware version/ part of himself he didn't want to Face and at the end he finally accepts her that's why his own hand is muddy instead because his personas are finally one pic.twitter.com/OPTHwQgsAh

if we summarize all the theories the woman in “like crazy” is jimin but in woman’s body, his own reflection and “she” that he used is also him talking about himself. so is “like crazy” actually about having a conflict between masculine and feminine sides, trying to accept but+ pic.twitter.com/5anieXuvYZ

Yet, others added that in an early BTS era, all of the members had female counterparts, except for Jimin. One fan believed that the video could represent his anima (the feminine part of a man’s personality) and how he is ready to embrace his feminine side.
Another reason ARMYs have this theory of the girl representing Jimin’s inner self is from the released album description. It was revealed that the album wanted to portray Jimin’s “reflection” and “inner-self.”
While music videos can sometimes be for the enjoyment of fans, the members of BTS always make them personal, showcasing their more vulnerable sides and stories through the music.
