BTS reference ‘Just One Day’ with ‘Yet to Come’

At the start of the “Yet to Come” music video, the members of BTS sit in chairs in the middle of a desert while wearing all-white outfits.

This is a reference to the band’s “Just One Day” music video, which was released in 2014. In the music video for “Just One Day,” Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook perform choreography on chairs arranged in a similar way to the “Yet to Come” music video.

“Just One Day” was originally released on BTS’ 2014 EP Skool Luv Affair.

A pickup truck could reference two BTS music videos

BTS released the song “Run” on their 2015 EP The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2. BTS’ “Yet to Come” music video contains multiple references to the “Run” music video.

At one point in the “Yet to Come” music video, Jin sits on a black pickup truck in the desert near an angel statue. The pickup truck appears to be similar to the one featured in the “Run” music video.

A black pickup truck was also used in the “Euphoria” music video which previewed the band’s 2018 Love Yourself: Answer compilation album. In the “Yet to Come” music video, the members of BTS climb into the truck, representing the “Euphoria : Theme of LOVE YOURSELF 起 Wonder” video.

The music video contains another reference to ‘Run’

In addition to including the black pickup truck, BTS’ “Yet to Come” music video features another reference to the “Run” music video.

During RM’s verse, a cargo container with the number “20219” can be seen in the background. In the “Run” music video, the same cargo container can be seen as RM walks along train tracks.

Of course, there are references to other BTS music videos throughout the “Yet to Come” video. The angel statue Jin sees is a reference to BTS’ “Blood Sweat & Tears” music video.

At one point in the “Yet to Come” music video, Suga stands on top of a piano, referencing the rapper’s song “First Love” and the band’s music video for “Fake Love.”

There are multiple references to ‘Spring Day’ in the ‘Yet to Come’ music video

“Spring Day” is one of BTS’ most popular songs, and the song was released in 2017 on the repackage album You Never Walk Alone. The “Yet to Come” music video contains multiple references to the beloved “Spring Day” music video.

In a blatant callback to the “Spring Day” music video, Jungkook stands in front of a blue carousel that reads “YOU NEVER WALK ALONE.”

Meanwhile, J-Hope briefly dances in front of an abandoned blue train, which could be another reference to “Spring Day.”

In the “Yet to Come” music video, both Jimin and V hold up their hands in similar gestures that they did in the “Spring Day” music video.

BTS’ ‘Yet to Come’ music video ends with a significant reference

The most important and nostalgic reference comes at the end of the “Yet to Come” music video. The music video ends with Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook leaving the desert on a yellow school bus.

In the “No More Dream” music video, their debut title track, BTS arrive in a yellow school bus. This appears to reference that the chapter BTS began with “No More Dream” is ending with “Yet to Come.”
