Hey ARMY! We had another amazing week and received so much BTS content. Below, in no particular order, is a summary of this week's news, so let's get it!
First up we have the PopUp House of BTS in Seoul, which opened its doors on the 22nd of October. ARMY's queued as early as 5am with the store opening at 10.30am. ARMY were there mainly to buy clothing and merchandise, most of which are items that are unique and exclusive to the Love Yourself Speak Yourself: The Final. In keeping with the pink theme, this store is aesthetically pleasing! There are three levels. The ground floor has the clothing and accessories. You can even try out the dance section, which has proven to be quite popular with ARMY. You can even record yourself dancing with the BTS characters in the AR zone. The first floor is where you can visit the 'Persona' café, so if you need to take a rest you can do so before heading on to take your photos with the chibi characters. One can even sit on the bench the boys took photos on. RM at House of BTS
The second floor is where you can take a picture in front of the cardboard standees with the boys (the MOTS group photo for concept 3). On the outside deck there are gigantic inflated ARMY bombs; why not get your friends to imitate the photos with you? Try and replicate one of these perhaps? Jin, V, and Jungkook at House of BTS

RM and J-Hope both posted on Twitter on the 25th. Tweet by RM at Seoul Final
J-Hope's tweet was a mirror selfie with a caption for ARMY reading 'See you tomorrow ARMY'. This was referencing the first of the two-day finale concerts in Seoul. Tweet by j-hope at Seoul Final
The 26th marked the beginning of the end for the Love Yourself Speak Yourself Era. The concert was held at Jamsil Olympic Stadium. ARMYs in attendance were blessed as they received goodies such as blankets (compliments of Fila and BTS), massage chairs, and printed photos from the photo card dispenser. The high energy performance from BTS was insane! A great concert experience delivered once again by BTS! What really made ARMY's hearts happy was seeing the slogan BTS made for us, it read 'You are always our start and our end'. Here we are, thinking that's exactly what BTS is to ARMY.
