1. Haters Gonna Hate, Players Gonna Play
One of the most memorable portions of the lyrics was Suga and RM's identical wordplay, "Haters Gonna Hate, Players Gonna Play." BTS's earlier songs, such as RM's "Do You" and BTS's "Mic Drop," contain the phrase "Haters Gonna Hate, Players Gonna Play." The lyrics of BTS are what set their song apart from others. This was the proof right here.

If you didn't think of the legendary Daechwita music video after watching "That That", you'd be lying to yourself. It's impossible to ignore the resemblance. The same car, the same smirk was comparable to Suga's method of displaying his rap stanza. The music video just got 100 times better thanks to this daechwita reference.
