The popular BTS singer released his long-awaited album “D-Day” on the same day a documentary series was released on Hotstar, talking about his journey and how he takes inspiration from traveling to different countries, starting from Seoul. In this article, we are going to talk about the characters featured in the series, and one of them is Ryuichi. So, let’s get started.
Ryuichi Sakamoto, who recently passed away on March 28, 2023, at the age of 71, was a Japanese composer, music producer, and actor. In 1978, he co-founded the Yellow Magic Orchestra and released the fusion album “Thousand Knives” in the same year. Two years later, he released his album “B-2 Unit,” whose track “Riot in Lagos” turned out to be revolutionary in the development of electro and hip-hop music.
He also made music for the opening ceremony of the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. He was very popular in his career, having won one Oscar, one BAFTA, a Grammy, and two Golden Globe awards. In 1983, he made his debut as an actor and song composer in the film “Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence.” Some of his other films include “The Last Emperor” (1987), “The Sheltering Sky” (1990), “Little Buddha” (1993), and many more.
As you can see in the series, Suga plays the piano in Tokyo for the late Ryuichi, who was his teacher and inspiration for music. He also pays tribute to him on his Instagram, saying “Teacher, I hope the faraway journey is peaceful.”
