-The Weekly Report-
BTS started out this week with their concert in New Jersey. Our Sunshine tweeted a thank you in English with a selca and a screen capture of him making the cutest face to prevent himself from crying. The US leg of Love Yourself: Speak Yourself ended with some 320,000 total participants in only 6 stops.
Another J-Hope worthy mention is NMEs’ report on Hoseok donating €65,000 to the Jeonnam Girls’ Commercial High School located in South Korea.
As well as this, POWERHOUSE recently tweeted that the BTS exhibition will be coming to the US! The first stop will be in New York during June 7 - July 11, 2019. More dates are planned to be released for Los Angeles and Chicago, so stay tuned to the website linked above or follow POWERHOUSE for further updates! The price of the tickets (as of May 23, 2019) are $30.00. Not too expensive at all if you live in the area or have the money to buy a flight to one of the three cities!
The Empire State Building in New York City lit up purple just for BTS, a huge deal as any New Yorker would tell you.
The BTS Magic Shop Muster official MD will be on sale (for attendees of the muster), May 27th- May 30th! A new method of buying official MD for the muster is ‘Order Now, Pick up later’. Bighit wants the fans to be prepared for the muster this year, so they’re implementing this new method that allows you to purchase your goods from the website and pick them up the day of the event in the respective cities (Busan and Seoul). If you aren’t able to attend the muster in person, official MD will be available online for order and delivery in June 2019. Stay tuned!
Hyundai announces a 1-hour exclusive video that will be shown in London on ‘the world’s most iconic screen’ located at Piccadilly Circus. This event is assumed to be a one time air on May 31st, 6-7pm (this is assumed as London time).
Four new BTS Bombs were dropped this week. Yeontan gave us an update, Jimin played with J-Hope’s ‘IDOL’ glasses, our boys had a chicken party, and we got BTS with the last day of Inkigayo ‘IDOL’ stage.
A quick but important celebration for BTS.
The boys official Twitter account officially hit 20 million followers!!! Namjoon tweeted his thanks as they become the first Korean account to reach 20 million followers.
This week of updates ends with BTS in Brazil, starting the new leg of their Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour! As always, Brazilian ARMYs are respectful and passionate to see the boys perform and support them.
