Next up, was the teaser MV for the title track ‘Boy with Luv‘ which features our favourite BTS fangirl Halsey.
The surprising clip features Halsey operating a ticket booth at a theatre where the marquee reads ‘Persona‘. After closing up and leaving for the day, she comes across the members of BTS lounging in front of the theatre under the marquee. The clip then jumps to BTS performing beneath a neon sign that reads ‘Love‘.
The name of the title track ‘Boy with Luv‘ appears to be a throwback to the group’s 2014 hit ‘Boy In Luv‘.

Earlier BTS had released more concept images, this batch of shots stayed with the overall theme that we have seen of laid back casualness, but again had two different concepts.
Each set of shots had one group photo and sets of individual shots. Concept shots 3 had the members posed in a bedroom like setting dressed in pyjamas (or they could have just looked like pjs to us). While in concept shots version 4, they’re dressed in bright coloured clothes eating fruit.
The four different concept looks are said to represent the four different versions of the ‘Persona‘ album.
