The concept for both versions is photo film reels, giving it an old school kind of feel. Are they hinting that this new album will be taking it back to basics?
The colour palette is bright and popping, contrasted with crisp, white backgrounds as the collection of photos show the boys in various poses, from deep and serious to cute and playful (yes, we’re looking at you, Suga).
Version one has Jungkook munching on, posing with and otherwise channelling his aegyo with cookies and we’re here for it.
In another version one photo, V poses with a camera phone and a selfie stick – a nod to his habit of taking lots of pictures. There’s V winking, there’s V pouting…there’s V posing with the selfie stick…it’s just too much.
Another camera afficiando is Suga, who swapped selfies for a digital camera, and in between posing for a few shots he uses it to make off-camera snaps. Maybe he’s picturing the Army? We’re down with this idea.
BTS leader RM poses with a giant green duvet and alternates between peace signs and hearts donned in a bright yellow beanie, while Jin looks like he’s in a Vogue photoshoot.
J-Hope clutches what appears to be a water gun in his concept shots (because of course), whilst Jin rubs a balloon on his pastel pink hair.
Version two on the other hand, has the boys appearing to get ready for bed, donned in brightly coloured pajamas that match their hair while they pose for mirror selfies in a pink bathroom. They’ve got separate photos, too, in pajamas way too fancy to sleep in.
The Army is loving it, and they took the opportunity to celebrate their biases.
‘Oh my god,’ one J-Hope fan wrote under his picture. ‘OK NO WORD,’ another wrote under a Jin photo which featured his playful face.
‘Beautiful. Just beautiful,’ another fan added, rendered almost speechless.
Map Of The Soul: Persona is out 12 April.
