Popular K-Pop Director Shares Why BTS Jungkook’s Directing For “Life Goes On” Is Impressive
Jungkook famously took part in filming the music video for BTS‘s latest title track “Life Goes On”, and a professional director recently praised him for his skills!
Cinematographer and Director of Photography Yun In Mo recently made a guest appearance on Reasonable Reactions. He was accompanied by respected players in the K-Pop music video industry, including a director, assistant director, and editor.
In the video, they watched the MV of “Life Goes On” for the first time, giving their honest opinions on it.
When asked what he thought about it, Yun In Mo praised the message of the song, calling it “strong” and “impressive”. He was also impressed by a particular scene that was shot, which he thinks Jungkook may have filmed.
The scene in question is of V driving around the city, and he was all-praise for how steadily it was shot: “But, really, I think it might be Jungkook who filmed in the car. Looking at the pose and the lens, I could’ve been all shaking as they’re in the car“.
According to Yun In Mo, it is challenging to film inside a moving vehicle because of the need to hold the camera as steadily as possible.
Some people may think that a stabilizing function will solve the problem, but even then, it’s no simple task!
No matter how well the stabilizing function works, it’s not easy.

If Jungkook is truly responsible for shooting the car scene, that’s some serious skill right there.
