This year, BTS is releasing a new fantasy webtoon called 7Fates: CHAKHO. Will it tie into their new album?
what if the 7 fates chakho storyline is linked with the upcoming comeback?like we get the storyline in 7 fates and then the main track for it on the new album… HOLD ON

It’s possible! After all, as one fan pointed out, BTS’s previous webtoon Save Me had connections to BTS’s MAP OF THE SOUL albums, which tied into The Most Beautiful Moment In Life albums’ storyline.
What if the new Album will be based on 7 fates like hyyh, mots were linked to save me webtoon?

3. New genre?
BTS’s “new chapter” could potentially introduce a completely new sound or genre that the group hasn’t tried or fully explored yet.
A new chapter for bts,,, maybe doing like a whole new album of one genre, what if they’re going full indie/housepop,,, and I know they’ve already done it with their first albums but what if they do like a full modern r&b/hip hop album,,,

4. New series
Fans fell in love with BTS’s previous album series, LOVE YOURSELF and MAP OF THE SOUL. BE was a standalone album, but it’s possible that BTS might kick off a new series this year.

5. A new chapter for an old story
Diehard fans of the HYYH era refuse to let it die, but what if BTS really is planning to go back in time? On Instagram, RM recently posted these photos from BTS’s onstage: prologue music video.

Some fans predict that the album will be released mid-year. What if the announcement comes in March?

8. The album’s design
This ARMY’s vision certainly fits the “new chapter” concept!
what if the new album is shaped like a book that gets put it into a bookcase & opens a secret door to this new chapter & the song titles have things like intro/prologue/epilogue & the track list of is table of contents this is a lot to take in for pun loving book lover like me

9. The theme
Each of BTS’s albums has a theme, and fans believe that their next one will be just what we need in 2022.
What if the new album is about finding hope and comfort?? Why do I feel like it??
