BTS has a lot of content, so much in fact, that it’s sometimes hard to keep up. For ARMY who’ve been around a while, here’s a fun reminder. For those new to the club, here are 10 facts you probably didn’t know!
1. BTS Once Framed And Hung A Meme Photo Of J-Hope
J-Hope once had possibly the greatest photo ever taken during a fan meeting event. The image went so viral that it was framed and given to BTS, who later posted selfies with the piece and hung it in their offices.
2, BTS Has A Partially English Version Of Their Song “Danger”
While it’s not entirely in English, and the boys don’t sing it themselves, the song is still totally fire and was done in collaboration with Vietnamese singer THAN. It’s called “‘Danger (Mo-Blue-Mix) ft. THANH” and the gorgeous black and white music video is still one of BTS’s hottest looks to this day.
