1. RM’s deleted photo

This photo of BTS’s leader (and a chillin’ mannequin) vanished as soon as it appeared!

RM tweeted the photo back in 2018, along with three other pictures of his BTS members.

Shortly after the tweet went out, he deleted the tweet and reuploaded three of the four original photos. Why? We may never know, but thanks to ARMY’s speed, RM’s selfie still exists.

2. J-Hope’s “Spring Day”

For BANG BANG CON, J-Hope shared a TikTok video of himself dancing to “Spring Day”, then deleted it right away. Why? BTS is partnered with Samsung, but J-Hope uploaded the video from his iPhone!

Of course, ARMY noticed — and they brought the receipts!

3. Jungkook’s “10,000 Hours” cover

On July 28, 2020, Samsung Mobile brand ambassador Jungkook tweeted a short cover of “10,000 Hours” by Dan+Shay and Justin Bieber from his iPhone. He deleted it at the speed of light, but ARMYs had already saved the video and shared it elsewhere. It would have been a shame to lose this masterpiece!

4. Big Hit’s blunder

Last year, Big Hit Music released a preview for BTS’s 2021 Season’s Greetings DVD. A few minutes after the preview dropped, photos from BTS’s retro shoot were accidentally leaked on the Weverse app.

The photos were quickly deleted, but by then it was too late! ARMY has saved them all.

5. This mysterious music video scene

In 2015, BTS released their “on stage: prologue” music video. Although most fans have probably seen it, newer ARMYs might not know that it used to have a different ending. The video was deleted, re-edited, then reuploaded.

In the current version, RM photographs Jin and Suga at a gas station then slips the photo into the glove compartment. The photograph is never shown again.

In the original version, Jin takes the photo out of the glove compartment during a post-credits scene and realizes that Suga is missing from the photograph.

If not for fans, the original ending would have been lost!
