8 Years Of BTS’s “Sunshine Line” To Make You Emotional

They’ve grown so much…

BTS‘s Sunshine Line, better known as V, Jimin, and J-Hope, have been shining brightly for ARMYs ever since their debut. Just a few hours ago, Jimin blessed us with another photo of the trio, causing ARMYs to freak out and trend “SUNSHINE LINE” on Twitter. In honor of V’s birthday and Jimin’s fresh sunshine line content, let’s take a trip down memory lane of the trios past 8 years.

2013: O! R we l8 2 the party?

This lively photo brings us all the way back to the O!RUL8,2? “NO” era when BTS wore lots and lots of white (and quite a few bowl cuts). We’re seeing the beginning of a legendary path.

2014: On a Namhansanseong adventure!

Many ARMYs know about the famous Sunshine Line trip to Namhansanseong which is a historic mountain fortress about 15 miles south of Seoul. This is the era where many members were obsessed with all sorts of hats (but mostly the snapback and bucket hat).

2015: Tower of Cute

Probably tired from all the practice, the boys pile onto one another in the old training room. This year was the year that began their iconic HYYH era and boundless popularity creeping on the horizon.

2016: Winning Awards and Growing Up

With adorable faces, the sunshines are truly starting to shine with the explosive international popularity of the Wings era. And now with colored hair!

2017: Hopeonthestreet!


The greatly missed Hopeonthestreet was a video series of J-Hope dances to anything such as covers, their own songs, or just plain freestyling. In an iconic BTS moment, V and Jimin came to join him and adorable chaos ensued.

2018: Dropping mics on the world

“Mic Drop” brought us the hip-hop flair and grunge style from their beginning, but oh so much better! 2018 is when their fashion truly starts to form a solid direction.

2019: “We goin’ NY to Cali, London to Paris, We goin’ from Tokyo, Italy, Hong Kong to Brazil

Now dominating the world, the sunshines bless us with several airplane photos bringing us along on the journey we helped to create.

2020: Winter Angels

BTS is worthy of history books and the trio is shining brighter than they ever have before. With mature styles, found identities, but the same love for each other, the boys remain ARMY’s bright light in a dark year.
