On every BTS birthday, the happiest people are…
FESTA (BTS’s debut anniversary) is always a memorable milestone, not only for the global group but also for ARMY (BTS’s official fandom).
As of today, BTS officially entered the 9th year of operation. As usual, BTS has a series of activities collectively known as BTS FESTA, lasting from early June to June 13 to celebrate this big day with their fans. And do you know who is the happiest person on BTS’s birthday? It is the ARMY – who receive countless gifts from BTS themselves such as: concerts, new songs, old songs renewed, spiritual and physical gifts (goods, cards…) and countless new special content from idol. Every gift is filled with the love of the 7 members for their fans.
9th Anniversary (2022): BTS released a collection of songs that “stormed”, Jungkook released a song for ARMY
On June 10, the group released the album Proof marking 9 years of debut with the title MV Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment). Not only retelling the career story of the past 9 years, BTS also continues the unfinished youth story that the group likened to the end of the first chapter, to look forward to a better tomorrow without settling on yesterday.
Not only that, but Jungkook also surprised the fans with a sweet and lovely love song like a sincere thank you from the maknae of the group.
“My You” is a Korean-English bilingual song that Jungkook dedicates entirely to the ARMYs who have been by his side for the past 9 years. Therefore, the clip for this song is made as simple as the message that Jungkook sent on behalf of BTS to his fans.
8th anniversary (2021): BTS held an online concert and fan meeting but still overwhelmed non-fans with their willingness to play
Due to the complicated epidemic situation, the group decided to hold MUSTER 2021 (concert event and fan meeting) in the FESTA series in an online format, but still made ARMY extremely excited when arranging the stage of picture number 8, two stages. The big picture and many small screens around make it easier for BTS to meet ARMY around the world. The eye-catching performances with the “surreal” visuals of the 7 members are also the highlight of the concert.
