In the lead-up to the release of their comeback album ‘Map of the Soul:7‘, BTS have, as we expected, been dropping all sorts of visually stunning concept images.

We’ve gathered them altogether in one place for you (and us) to check out!

The second set of teaser images were released on February 11. They were the complete opposite of the first set, and showed the darker more complex side of the concept. The members are pictured as shadowy, dark figures with black wings.

The group released the first set of teaser images on February 10, and they were oh-so-captivating and mesmerising all at once. The images were beautiful and innocent, but stark and empty at the same time.

In ‘Ego‘, J-Hope takes us on a personal journey, sharing what it’s been like for him, learning how to be both J-Hope and Jung Hoseok. He reflects on how his journey began and how he eventually got to where he is now, seven years later. He looks at all of the ups and downs and chooses his final fate: hope.
