In the bonus footage released, BIBI opens up about the two red dots she draws under her right eye.

BIBI shared that her grandfather had battled illness since he was in his 30s and passed away when the singer was only five years old.

In her final memory of her grandfather, BIBI visited him with Buddhist prayer beads, which she excitedly presented to him.

She shared that when he smiled upon seeing her, his red moles stood out to her.

To honor his memory, she draws two red dots under her right eye for the majority of her public appearances.

BIBI sweetly reflected on her relationship with her grandfather, saying his love was so big that she still feels it now.

She revealed that she now prays to her grandpa frequently, asking for his help when she needs it.

BIBI has also previously said that she draws the two dots to be a reminder to stay calm and in control.

In an interview with Teen Vogue, she also added that the dots remind her to be more like the wonderful person her grandpa was.

He was smart and fun. Absolutely so fun. He was very playful, very merciful. My grandma loved him. My mom and my dad admired him. I wanted to be like him. I was just a girl before I debuted. I’ve done bad things. I’ve said mean words, but after I made my debut, I had to present myself [the same way he emulated himself to me]. That’s why I put two dots.


BIBI has continued the tradition since her debut.
