“Keeping Up With The Bangtans”: All BTS Members’ Current Solo Brand Ambassadorships

It’s BTS’s world, and we’re just living in it.

BTS have advertised numerous brands and products throughout the years as global ambassadors. Just a few examples include Coca-Cola, Louis Vuitton, Samsung, Puma, McDonald’s… The list goes on.

While they have always been ambassadors as a group, they have started promoting individually with solo ambassadorships since members are preparing for their mandatory military enlistment (Jin is the first to enlist so far). So, check out each BTS member’s current brand ambassadorship below.

1. RM — Bottega Veneta

RM had yet to be announced as the brand’s ambassador officially when he was spotted at the Bottega Veneta’s fashion show on February 25th. Now, finally, on March 30, the brand’s Creative Director, Matthieu Blazy, announced that RM is the latest addition to the “family” via Instagram.

Although I lost interest in brands, fashion weeks, and that constant change of Pantone…Bottega is different, they don’t use logos, they have a history with fabrics and leather, they don’t even have Instagram. They are beyond fads.

2. Jin — Jin Ramen

Before he enlisted, Jin’s dream came true to be the CF model for Ottogi‘s Jin Ramen.

3. Suga — Valentino

Suga was appointed Valentino’s latest brand ambassador in January.

He is a multi-faceted artist, an interpreter who uses his talent and work to express himself with energy and authenticity. He perfectly embodies everything that DI.VA.s testimonials stand for diversity, inclusivity, creativity, and passion.

⁠—  Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli

4. J-Hope — Louis Vuitton

In February, J-Hope was announced to be the new global ambassador for luxury brand Louis Vuitton, for which BTS previously were ambassadors.

In January, Jimin was named DIOR’s global brand ambassador in time for Paris Fashion Week.

Then, in March, Jimin was also named the new House ambassador for luxe jewelry and specialty design house Tiffany & Co.

6. V — Celine

Recently, V graced the cover of ELLE Korea in Celine, announcing his luxury brand ambassadorship.

7. Jungkook — Calvin Klein

The most recent to be announced was the BTS maknae for Calvin Klein. He is the brand’s latest ambassador, advertising denim and underwear.
