On April 16th, BTS announced their comeback on June 10th through the last day of ‘BTS Permission to Dance on Stage-Las Vegas‘ held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, USA.
BTS turned Las Vegas purple through ‘BTS Permission to Dance on Stage – Las Vegas’. Starting from April 8th, BTS met with a total 200,000 audiences, with 50,000 people per episode through a total of 4 performances from the 9th, 15th, and 16th.
After the stage of the last song ‘Permission to Dance’ on the day was finished, the subtitles ‘WE ARE BULLETPROOF‘ and ‘2022.06.10′ appeared on the Weverse live screen.
In the 49-second of comeback video that started with the phrase ‘WE ARE BULLETPROOF‘, the BTS logo was drawn, signaling the start of a new project. In particular, June 10th draws attention in that it is within the ‘BTS Festa’ that BTS holds with their fandom ‘ARMY’ every year. June 13th is the 9th anniversary of BTS’ debut.
‘BTS Festa’ is an event where BTS celebrate their debut anniversary with ARMY. The annual celebration includes many gifts, like new pictures, funny profiles, video content, special songs, radio programs, and more. This celebration takes place for 10-14 days starting from either the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th of June.
BigHit said “We will announce more details about the album in the future.”
However, the fact that June 10th is a Friday, when BTS usually releases new songs or new albums and in terms of making a comeback, the release of a new song on June 10 is more weighted.
When a new song comes out this time, it will be about 11 months since ‘Permission to Dance‘ released in July 9th last year. It will be the first time in 9 months if you include the collaboration song ‘My Universe‘ with this team on the Britpop band ‘Coldplay’ album.
In particular, there is a high possibility that this time it will be the regular 5th album. In terms of albums, it’s been 1 year and 7 months since the mini-album ‘BE’ released in November 2020. In terms of a full-length album, it has been 2 years and 4 months since the 4th regular album ‘Map of the Soul: 7’ released in February 2020.
