BTS and LINE FRIENDS‘ BT21 is finally getting the “borahaefication” treatment!
As you know, purple has great significance to the BTS fandom as it’s the official color. It originated with V‘s coining of the phrase Borahae (“I Purple You”).
So, since purple became BTS’s official fandom color, locations, landmarks, etc., often light up in purple in honor of the group.

We can’t see purple without thinking of BTS now, and we’re not the only ones. Even Jungkook thinks of BTS when he sees the color!
jungkook asked if they made it purple specially for them and the tannies’ reactions pls 😭 pic.twitter.com/D29F8y7ZwS

So, when we see a celebrity dressed in all-purple, we can’t help but wonder if they are an undercover ARMY…

Additionally, there’s been a trend on Twitter in which memes and celebrities are “borahaeified,” adding lots of purple and iconic BTS imagery. One account borahae button (@BorahaeifyBot on Twitter) is dedicated to creating these edits and even accepts requests.

One of the most popular edits is to make one’s outfit purple, then add BTS logos, ARMY Bomb, and/or BT21 merchandise.

LINE FRIENDS announced that a line of the character plushes would soon be released. It is the “Purple edition!”
