Earlier this year, Korean pop group BTS embarked on a tour, which sold out in multiple cities across the U.S. and the world. BTS fans have been patiently waiting for the seven-piece pop group to release new music.
Yesterday, one of the members of BTS, Jungkook, tweeted out a photo of himself in a wheelchair with the hashtag #LOVEYOURSELF. According to a press release, Jungkook was the first of the other group members to start the "Love Yourself" compaign, and today, more members of BTS followed in his footsteps. You can check out the tweets below.
According to a press statement,"‘Love Yourself’ is a new concept, which Rap Monster alluded to when the band accepted their Billboard Music Award for Best Social Artist in May 2017 when he said, “....Love myself, Love Yourself.'" The bands motto speaks to its fans, and once the picture was posted online, it was trending worldwide almost immediately.
In addition to announcing their "Love Yourself" series, it was also announced that the group would be releasing new music in September.
While we aren't lucky enough for BTS to perform at KCON 2017 in Los Angeles this year, other k-pop sensations such as SF9, NCT127 and Girls Day will be performing. You can grab tickets right here on AXS.
