The photo revealed an ice cream cone that had variations of the color purple along with white along with pieces of fruit. The colors are reminiscent of BTS and ARMYs special phrase “borahae” which means “I purple you.”
Previously, BTS collaborated with Baskin Robbins and released a special “7” cake and signal light to celebrate their seven year anniversary since debut. Pre-orders were available for the cake from July 21 to 23 and was priced at 26,000 KRW (~$22 USD).
