Additionally, a logo trailer featuring a lone astronaut traveling through space and a comeback schedule have been released.

Yet, ARMYs noticed a detail in the trailer that reminded them of something…

Of course, the entire concept is consistent with Jin’s previous solos, such as “Moon,” as he has communicated that he is the moon and ARMY is his Earth.

But ARMY recognized the logo trailer is very similar to a previous BTS video. Following the release of YouTube Original‘s RELEASED, featuring Coldplay‘s Chris Martin, a “‘Permission to Dance’ (Shorts Challenge ver.) MV” came out. In the video, there was an astronaut who even danced to “Permission to Dance.”

It has been a year since this video was released, but ARMYs can’t deny the similarities between the two videos, particularly the two astronauts.

ARMYs are now convinced that the little astronaut in space is the same and was meant to be a hint for what was to come.

Interestingly, Chris Martin has reportedly gifted a song to Jin for his solo comeback.

There were several details ARMYs noticed in the logo trailer beyond that, including Jin’s dog and representations for him, ARMY, and BTS.
