“BTS IS BACK” — The Unexpected Reason BTS Is Suddenly Trending Worldwide As OT7

It definitely wasn’t what ARMYs expected in 2023!

Back in 2022, BTS seemingly broke the hearts of ARMYs when it was revealed that the members would be taking time to focus on solo activities.

While the members still did activities together, including variety shows, it seemed even harder to find group promotions and releases after Jin became the first member to enlist at the end of 2022.

It was a tough moment for fans, but the idol has continued to update fans and has met with the members on several occasions.

On April 14 (KST), it wouldn’t be surprising if non-ARMYs were confused by the BTS-related trending phrases on Twitter. While it isn’t odd for trends to be influenced by BTS, it was odd that the top phrases included talk about “OT7” and “BTS IS BACK.”

On April 14, it was announced BTS had participated in the upcoming 3D Animation Series Bastions with an original OST. The song that would be the title track of the series was announced to be done by all seven members of the group.

Although the social media account of the series only posted a teaser of 30 seconds, it was enough to send the internet into meltdown with the vocals of Jungkook and Jimin heard.

After the teaser was posted, it wasn’t surprising that ARMYs couldn’t contain their excitement and anticipation. In particular, it seems like ARMYs are being treated with so much content amongst new ahead of Suga’s release.

Many ARMYs also joked that when HYBE said BTS was returning in 2025 and anti-fans tried to shut them down, the group has been proving them wrong with so much content, whether as a group or individually.

Although the members might be focusing on solo releases, and with Jin enlisted and J-Hope to follow, it seems like ARMYs will always be treated to content from the group as a whole.
