Do Hanse is best known for being VICTON‘s lead dancer and main rapper. Rapping is not easy, but he makes it look like a walk in the park. His fans around the world praise him for his outstanding rapping talents. Today, we will highlight six of Do Hanse’s iconic rap lines.
“Mayday” comes from VICTON’s second single album with the same name. The theme of “Mayday” circles around feeling stuck in a self-destructive cycle of emotional turbulence in a relationship. In Hanse’s first verse, he accepts his current situation. He also questions if he will die young and references Kurt Cobain’s song “Nevermind” as a way to brush off his emotions and move forward, even if he has to pretend that he’s okay.
What I Said
“What I Said” comes from VICTON’s first studio album, ‘Voice: The Future Is Now.’ Hanse had two verses in the song, but the highlight of his performance was in verse two. He confidently claimed his skills and talents, as well as those of VICTON as a whole, and his desire to push boundaries stand out. What made everyone pay attention to him was the flow of his verse. You could hear how fast he was rapping and the camerawork in the music video shows us hard proof.
Flip A Coin
“Flip A Coin” comes from ‘Voice: The Future Is Now.’ The song’s first verse showcases the highlight in Hanse’s performance. One line in his verse goes, “Whole lot of money on my body, Baribari get that dough.” Hanse used the phrase as a metaphor for his determination to gain success and abundance of material goods. Did you know that Hanse wrote his verses in three minutes and recorded them all in one take? If that’s not legendary, we don’t know what is.
“Take Over” comes from his solo debut, ‘BLAZE.’ The highlight of “Take Over” happens during the second verse, where he describes himself as a powerful individual who is unwilling to change himself based on others’ criticism. Hanse also rejects the comments of those who underestimate him and claims that he makes his own rules and stands out in the K-Pop scene.
“Chronograph” comes from VICTON’s third single album with the same name. “Chronograph” talks about how love can make time feel unimportant in a relationship and how it can guide someone through the unknown things in life. This song’s highlight occurs in verse two, where he talks about how time is running out, but it’s not too late to fix everything. You can also check out the English version of “Chronograph” here!
“Virus” comes from the group’s eighth mini album, ‘Choice,’ and everything about Hanse’s verse is immaculate. His verse talks about feeling lost, possessed by his emotions, and wanting a significant other to show him love and affection. He then realizes that the choice to love someone is in his hands, that he has control over the decision, and he is willing to go through any obstacle to be with them. The way Hanse raps over the beat is satisfying to any listener and will catch everyone’s attention. We also want to shout out the small vocal part in his verse; chef’s kiss.
