Suga of the K-pop sensation BTS showed a vulnerable side of himself through the music video for "Amygdala," a song off his newly-released solo album.
BTS' management, Hybe Labels, unveiled late Monday the video for "Amygdala," which comes with a warning before it could be played since it tackles sensitive topics such as self-harm.
In a recent interview with fellow K-pop singer IU, the 30-year-old rapper said "Amygdala" is one of the songs from his new album "D-Day" that he cherishes and loves the most.
The song takes its title from the part of the brain responsible for emotions.
"It was a song where I accessed my unconscious mind to see why this person called Min Yoon-gi exists until now," Suga said, mentioning his birth name.
"This was a song that sorted my thoughts out," he added.
"Amygdala" is the third song off "D-Day," which dropped last Friday, to get a music video, following the pre-release track "People Pt.2" and lead single "Haegeum."
Following the album's release, Suga is set to kick off his solo concert tour in the United States on April 26.
