“I’m like a camel. Horses run fast but get exhausted quickly. But a camel moves consistently.” - SUGA’s words from BTS’ newest docu-series, “BREAK THE SILENCE”.
Jumping right into this week’s Previously on Bangtan, let's start with the “BREAK THE SILENCE: docu-series”!
THE NEW DOCU-SERIES
On May 12, “BREAK THE SILENCE” episodes 1 and 2 were published on Weverse. Totaling in 7 episodes and airing every Tuesday and Thursday from May 12 to 28, the documentary takes ARMY and viewers along BTS’ journey of 2018 and 2019. The documentary starts out with interviews of the members and the 2018 MAMA awards, where j-hope, V, and Jin shed tears during their award acceptance speech. If you haven’t purchased it yet, you can find it on Weverse Shop for $19.99.
Because of this, Run BTS! has been postponed for the month of May, but rest assured that this documentary will bring new light to BTS and lead into June, which is FESTA season!
TWITTER TAGS, WEVERSE, VLIVES AND MORE!
This week on Twitter, Jimin, RM, Jin, and SUGA posted. Jimin shared a selca wishing good health for ARMY. A member that fans assumed to be RM posted a picture of flowers that bloomed due to the rain and was also curious about what ARMY had been up to. A wrap-up tweet of a new session of #0613FM_0509 featured DJ SUGA HONEY and his guest, Jin! On May 10 and 12, SUGA and Jin shared selcas, encouraging ARMY to rest up well and enjoy their time, respectively.
Our sunshine, j-hope, went to VLive on Thursday, May 14 with arts and crafts! He began making bracelets for his six band members. Considering the length of the live, he only accomplished making Jimin, SUGA and RM’s bracelets. J-hope mentioned that he will try to do a part two and finish the other members’ bracelets.
On Weverse, RM shared two pictures of his new haircut and a song recommendation, while V communicated with ARMY and posted a status of “end.”
