Say Goodbye, ARMY — BTS’s “HYYH” Swimming Pool Is Gone 

This piece of BTS history is no more.

ARMY can visit many of BTS‘s filming locations in Korea, but one of them no longer exists.

In 2015, BTS released on stage: prologue, one of the music videos that formed the foundation of The Most Beautiful Moment in Life era, also known as HYYH. This era evolved into the BTS Universe, a story about BTS’s fictional lives that fans are still fascinated by six years later.

on stage: prologue was filmed at an abandoned swimming pool at Seoul National University (SNU). It could be reached by taking a bus to the SNU Genetic Engineering Research Center, then following a mountain trail to the left of the building.

Unfortunately for fans, not everyone shares their feeling of attachment and nostalgia for SNU’s pool. Earlier this year, the pool was filled in with dirt as part of a demolition project that began in April and ended in May. The details are as follows:
