BTS Sends ARMY Into a Tailspin With Cryptic Teaser Video: ‘Coming Soon’

Even though BTS is currently on break as most of its members complete their military obligations, the group is now teasing that a mysterious new project is on the way. And needless to say, ARMY couldn’t be more excited.

Chaos first broke out when BTS tweeted a cryptic video Tuesday (July 2) featuring a slideshow of photos showing two band members exploring the outdoors together. In one snap, they ride on a shared motorcycle; in others, the pair goes snorkeling.

At the end, the symbols “?!” flash onscreen. “2024. 08. 08,” the band’s official account wrote in its caption. “Coming Soon.”

The tweet has already inspired much excitement and confusion among fans, with one person commenting, “WHAT. DOES. THIS. MEAN?” Others, however, are confident they know exactly what the teaser video is in reference to. Based on the theme of the photos featured in the clip, many ARMY members are staking their bets on a travel documentary centered around Jung Kook and Jimin, which they previously hinted at last year.

“FINALLYYYYYY A JIKOOK TRAVEL SHOW !?!?!?!?!??!?” one person wrote, referencing the pair’s friendship by conjoining their names, a practice affectionately used throughout K-pop fandoms.

“This is going to be my everything, my comfort show,” added another fan. “My entire home.”

The travel series theories may be supported by a November episode of Suchwita, the YouTube talk show hosted by BTS’ Suga. At one point, Jung Kook appeared as a guest and revealed that he and Jimin had once discussed filming their joint adventures across the globe.

“On a shoot with Jimin ages ago, he said it might be fun to do a travel variety show with me, and I agreed,” Jung Kook told Suga in the video, according to YouTube’s English translation. “But it didn’t end up going anywhere after that. Then suddenly, they set up a shoot.”

Billboard has reached out to BTS’ reps for clarification.

In the meantime, BTS is currently enlisted in the South Korean military — minus Jin, who finished his mandated 18-month service in June. Several members have unveiled solo projects in recent months to keep giving to fans during the band’s time away, with Jimin announcing his new album, Muse, in June.
