Hello ARMY! This week has been a busy one, with so many releases! On that note, Jin insightfully commented on an ARMY’s post on Weverse: “The reason why contents are being released endlessly is because we’re filming every day.”
BTS continuously breaks records with ARMY’s help. The boys recently earned their latest record breaking headline: First kpop album to spend 1 year on Billboard 200. Thanks to Love Yourself: Answer, re-entering the charts at number 165, they scored the record by reaching their 52nd non-consecutive week. The album Love Yourself: Answer has reached platinum eligibility as well!! Congrats BTS!
J-Hope’s Chicken Noodle Soup (feat. Becky G) reached 100 million views on YouTube. The song has done really well since its release on September 27th: so far, it has reached #1 in 69 countries and regions across the World, #82 in the Top 100 Singles Chart and #81 on Billboard Hot 100!
Another success regarding YouTube is Boy With Luv MV reaching 600 million views. Congratulations BTS and ARMY! You all worked really hard generating records and success for the boys. Give yourself a pat on the back.
MTV EUROPE Awards: BTS wins 2019 Best Group Award. This EMA marks the boys’ third time win from this Award Ceremony since they already won in 2015 (Best Korean Act Award) and in 2018 (Biggest Fans and Best Group Awards). In 2019, they also won EMA Biggest Fans and Best Live Act.
In the meantime, You Never Walk Alone has been ranked 80 in The Genius Community’s 100 Best Albums of the 2010s. What's your favorite song from the album?

BTS collaboration with Casetify

Army charities around the World.
Twitter user @OneInAnArmy posted a google map linked with all types of philanthropic associations created by ARMY Worldwide. This map shows all charities that have happened, are currently happening, and will happen. You can easily find links to each charity, see more information on what the charity is for and how you can participate. What do you plan to join? Let us know!
BTS Bomb: House of BTS... with BTS! Pictures floated around a couple of weeks ago of BTS leaving their dedicated Pop-up Store in Seoul: House Of BTS. Now we have a BTS Episode showing exactly what happened inside the store!
Without spoiling the entire video, we can mention that the boys rushed immediately to the fluffy Boy With Luv pink jackets. They all seemed to enjoy wandering around the store, discovering the rooms, taking photos and touching all the merch in display. Wearing a very stylish pink coat, Taehyung also played the role of a store clerk helping Jin to find a black hat but failing to find a new coat for a reluctant Yoongi. Considering their baskets full of items from the store at the end of the video, we can say that they had a great time
Are you planning to follow BTS’ steps and visit the store, ARMY?
Bon Voyage season 4 is now available for pre-order on Weply! Enjoy Namjoon, Seokjin, Yoongi, Hoseok, Jimin, Taehyung, and Jungkook in the beautiful snow-capped mountains of New Zealand. The first trailer shows reminiscent clips of BV1 where the boys camped out, cooked and enjoyed a hot tub together. We will also get to see our Jungkook with long hair! Watch the preview clip here.
The price for the whole series of 8 episodes is about $20 USD and the rollout will be one full episode of 60 minutes with a Behind-The-Scenes clip of 10 minutes, every Tuesday. Airing will start exclusively on Weverse, on November 19th and will last until January 7th, 2020! You can pre-order the series on Weply until November 19th, and if you do so, you can add luggage tags to your order from $4.80 USD (for set A which includes a random day or night version of a luggage tag) to $9.60 USD (for set B which includes both day and night versions of luggage tags, plus two photocards). Purchase through Weply and watch on Weverse.
You can also purchase the luggage tags without purchasing BV4. In that case, the price varies from $9.60 USD to $19.20 USD according to the set.
Some new RM, V and Jimin’s pictures were recently created by artist Kildren who shared his beautiful works on Instagram.
Don’t you agree it’s been a busy week? What are you looking forward to? What charities are you interested in? Let us know in the comments, and let’s continue fighting for our boys. Purple you!
