Here’s How BTS Celebrated Their First Christmas With ARMY

Travel back in time to BTS’s first Christmas.

Six months after their June 2013 debut, BTS celebrated their first Christmas with ARMY. Here’s what the members were up to that Christmas, and the days leading up to it. Like Santa, you might want to check this list twice!


1. Storytime with Suga Claus

Suga kicked off BTS’s Honey FM 06.13 Christmas party with a story about 7 hardworking trainees who were treated to a company dinner on Christmas Eve.

2. “Perfect Christmas”

On December 22, the Big Hit Family of 2013 released “Perfect Christmas”, an optimistic sequel to BTS’s 2012 Christmas song, “A Typical Trainee’s Christmas”. The video begins with smol Jungkook decorating a Christmas tree.


RM also appears in the video, looking too handsome for words. (Dear Santa, please bring back this turtleneck!)


Fun fact: This MV is one of the earliest examples of Jungkook’s love for film. Here he is, Mr. Golden Closet Film Director, playing with a Super 8 camera!
