Each BTS member — RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, V, Jimin, Jung Kook — has selected a spot that fans can explore through their eyes in the virtual street galleries. These include Seoul, São Paulo, Los Angeles, New York and London. The respective members offer information about their place and why they chose it, with their favourite artworks tacked on to certain buildings.
Fans can also create their own street gallery in a number of the aforementioned locations, choosing their own artworks for the area along with images of the band.
In addition to the Google collab, the band also shared a video message for the ARMY, which reads: “Many moments were spent together. I am so glad we have the opportunity to reflect on our memories like this.”
“Whether near or far, I felt we were tightly connected through song and dance. Our every moment was also a moment together with you. We are so blessed for being a part of your story. With a grateful heart, I hope to write more stories in the future with you. The best moment is yet to come.”
