** "Outro: Her" ends the album in a somewhat somber note, giving way to ''LOVE YOURSELF: Tear''. The person has fallen in love, but finds themself changing and covering their less desirable traits for the other person. As some people have pointed out, it can be interpreted as the way idols try to only show their good side to fans, having their image cleaned-up and controlled by their company and having no space for flaws or mistakes.

** Jimin and his personal issues with his weight and appearance. In an episode of "Take Good Care of the Fridge", he admits only ate once every ten days, resulting in him losing weight but passed out several times during practice. At his bandmates' and his family's insistence, he decided to stop that kind of diet and seems to have recovered. He is known in the fandom as the one who doubts himself the most, leading to the creation of #JiminYouArePerfect trending on Twitter as ARMYs way of supporting him.
** Jin, the lead visual of the group, also suffered through an intense diet by only eating chicken breasts for an entire year, as he admits during the same show as Jimin's. As a result, he lacked proper nutrients (he also did not take vitamin supplements) and became malnourished. Like Jimin, he seemed to have recovered and enjoys his food thoroughly.
** Suga suffers from depression and severe anxiety since he was young.

!!The Members
* Their whole story. They started from the very bottom, signing with a small company that did not even have the funds for background actors or stage crews, sleeping in a tiny dorm room, and having to be overlooked by the media, the K-Pop industry, and etc. Now, they have made several marks in history for K-Pop and the music industry as a whole, becoming global superstars and are one of the most beloved K-Pop bands in the entire world.

Added DiffLines:

* "Tomorrow" is directed to everyone (especially young adults) who's feeling stuck or lost in search of a dream, encouraging them to not give up. It was written by Suga while they were trainees, when the future of the group was completely uncertain - not to mention that Suga himself was seriously struggling with financial problems and mental illness during that period -, so it can really hit close to home.

* Taehyung revealing that his grandmother passed away while performing overseas in Manila.
* Jimin tearing up during a video log, confessing that he would like that have a voice that moves people, someday.
* Suga revealing in a series of tweets that he had been plagued with guilt when he was unable to perform at one of their shows due to suffering from an anxiety attack, and that he doesn't want to become a person who is numb to all the love he receives.


** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8npDG2ulKQ Intro: Singularity]]" immediately sets the tone for the album, completely contrasting "[[SweetDreamsFuel Intro: Serendipity]]". The song is slow, somber and even eerie, with V's baritone voice instead of Jimin's soft and higher-pitched one. The lyrics talk about the sober realization that hiding flaws, pain and sadness from the other has brought a LossOfIdentity, and that the mask built to please that other is becoming unsustainable.

** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C2z4GqqS5E FAKE LOVE]]" is when the mask finally breaks. It's desperate, explosive, and the lyrics tearfully detail the realization that the person has lost their sense of self; that, as much as the person hoped for it to work, the love they were building and craving was nothing but lies, since the loved one doesn't actually know or understand them after all.
