BTS Just Released Their Comeback Photos: Here's What We Know

BTS Just Released Their Comeback Photos: Here's What We Know

The countdown has begun and the theories have started.


On August 13th EST, BigHit Entertainment released BTS comeback photos for their new album 'LOVE YOURSELF: 結 Anser.' Currently, the agency has just released photos for the 'S' and 'E' versions while 'L' and 'F' versions have yet to be released. The album is set to be released on the 24th and from just the first set of comeback photos, we know the theories have just begun.

Here's what we know (or what we think we do):

1) Retro

ARMYs have been suspecting that the new comeback's vibe will be retro, with the new photos released, I think we can say that we are right. Photos in Version S showcase the group sporting brightly colored apparel with loose sleeves and dapper-looking suits. (Check out Jimin's pink pants!)

2) Trapped, watched, boxed, controlled

The repeated underlying theme that seems to be common in both versions of the album photos is the feeling of being trapped in a box with the eyes of everyone watching. This is illustrated by the red box background in version S and bubble in version E. In version S, each member is accompanied by either eyes, cameras or hands in the background each giving the feeling of being caged and put out in a display. In version E, there seems to be a lighter tone but the trapped feeling is still there. Inside the bubble, the members are accompanied by pastel flowers. (Is it just me or does version E remind you of Her?). Additionally, there are hints in the group photo (version E) that BTS is made to be like porcelain dolls who can be controlled.

3) Symbolism

Theories, theories, theories.

Seems us ARMYs cannot escape the neverending theories that come from BTS' albums.

Earlier, when talking about their new album, Suga had said that some people will say "how can they do something like that?" Seems with these new comeback photos we know why. Many fans have started to suspect that their new album will discuss controversial matters and be linked to George Orwell's 1984. The novel itself talks about a dystopian society in which people are under government surveillance and at the hands of manipulation (sounds similar to the theories, doesn't it?). We know that BTS is not one to shy from controversial issues, and we cannot wait for the story they have to tell us.

4) MAMA 2017

Do you remember the intro video to BTS' MAMA performance in 2017? Here's the video anyway.

In the intro (of the second chapter), we can see the glitching television screens that combust in the end. Well, guess what? They're back!

5) Jungkook's hair tho

If you have been a fan of BTS for some while, then you are probably aware that Jungkook is the member who rarely changes his hair color. But this year seems to definitely be different as we seem Jungkook sporting light purple-pink hair color. The question is, however, will this be his hair color in their new music video?

LOVE YOURSELF: 結 Answer is BTS' most awaited comeback yet and with just these few sneak peaks we know the album will be fantastic. In this new album, we can already see BTS showcasing their versatility as they take on such innovative concepts. Remember to mark your calendars for the 24th!!

11 Things You Understand If You Hate Physical Contact

Please keep your hands and feet away from me at all times.

We currently live in a world where EVERYONE LIKES TO TOUCH EACH OTHER. People enjoy hugs, high fives, tapping others on the shoulder, pokes, ect. For someone like you and me (I'm assuming you too since you clicked on this article), this is the WORST thing in the world. Whenever I think of someone touching me (even just a poke) without my permission my reaction is like Sofia Vergara in Modern Family.

I mean, when I take that love languages quiz, physical touch is always on the bottom of my preferences. So I thought to my self, you know I can't be the only person in the world that hates physical touching. So here are 11 things every person who hates physical touch will understand:

1. When people tickle you

I don't care that it's just for fun and jokes; I'm not laughing because I want to, you are literally forcing me to laugh. I hate you, get your greasy hands off of me before I make you get them off of me.

2. When people think they need to tap your shoulder to get your attention

As if simply saying "Hey" followed by my name wasn't enough. I don't need your grubby little fingers touching me. Now I'm annoyed with you before this conversation even started, what do you want?

3. When someone you barely know reaches in for a hug

I don't know who the heck you're thinking you're about to hug because it sure isn't going to be me. Hugs are reserved for people I know well and like, not you. Okay release me now, I am not enjoying this. LET ME GO.

4. When people tell you that you aren't an affectionate person

Are you aware there are ways to show my affection without constantly being all over you like a koala bear? Yes, I'm affectionate, hop off.

5. When someone is in your personal space

We could be best friends, we could be complete strangers. We could be lovers, I could hate your guts. We could be in private, we could be in public. I don't care what the situation is, if you're in my personal space uninvited GET OUT. There is no reason to be so close to me unwarranted.

6. You don't know how to comfort people

When you see an upset loved one, most people think they you should comfort then by pulling them into a long lasting hug. But, that's the kind of things that your nightmares are literally made out of. So, you stand there confused how you should comfort your friend/relative while also not sacrificing your touch moral code.

7. When people say you "look like you could use a hug"

Um no. I never could use one, get off of me. I will let you know when I want one.

8. When you're hugging someone wondering how soon you can release

Please end my suffering.

9. When you arrive at a social gathering and people rush to greet you with hugs

Let's not.

10. When you try to leave a social gathering by just waving to get out of goodbye hugs

Please no one make me hug you.

11. That one person who is allowed to hug you/touch you

This person, typically a significant other or best friend, gets to break all the "no touch" rules and we gladly accept their hugs and cuddles and public displays of affection. But only them, no one can copy them.

7 Reasons 'Starset' Deserves To Get Big

The main reason they deserve success is that they love everything they do.


Starset consists of four members, Dustin Bates, Ron DeChant, Brock Richards, and Adam Gilbert. The band was formed in Columbus, Ohio in 2013. Their music has influenced my and several others lives.

Here are a few reasons why they deserve to go down as one of the biggest bands in history.

1. They're the most original band I've heard in awhile.

Starset's content is unlike any other band I've heard or seen before. They classify themselves as "space rock", creating a type of music that many have never heard of before. They use your regular guitar, bass, and drums, but they also incorporate the use of violins, cellos, and synthesizers to create the unique, one of a kind sound. The lead singer, Dustin Bates, even created his own microphone that distorts his voice to use in live shows, so that you feel as though he's speaking to you through a radio in a space station.

2. They're all a bunch of nerds/dorks.

Starset is the kind of band that you'd love to be friends with. Not only are they wicked smart, they also have an amazing sense of humor. They incorporate their knowledge into the songs that they write, leaving you wanting to learn more about what it is they write in their songs.

3. Their songs are lyrically and melodically beautiful.

Ricochet is one of their most impactful and meaningful songs. When you first listen to it you can hear the emotion in Dustin's voice, but as you take a minute to listen to the lyrics, you realize it has so much more meaning than what you assumed. It represents the struggle of a relationship gone sour, the internal struggles within yourself, and the effect it has on both people in the relationship. It's a song that a lot of people can relate to, and I find that amazing.

4. They interact with and care about their fans.

Before their shows, they do eat and greets where they hang out with their fans, eat pizza, perform some acoustic songs, and take pictures with them. They have genuine conversations with them, asking us our names, what we like to do, and just keep up small talk. My brother, pictured here, had a conversation with Ron, the bassist, before the show started and they got along phenomenally. I don't know many bands who take that much time to get to know their fans and they even interact with them on Twitter.

5. Have comics with Marvel.

The Prox Transmissions - Marvel Comics

Not only does Starset create music, they also have their own comics with Marvel. The comics are based on an alternate world they created through their music. Each album has a story, but now it's come to life through their comic, The Pros Transmissions. How dope is that?

6. Created their own society to inform the world of various things.

The Starset Society is a mission, created by Starset, to inform others of the up-coming technological advances happening in the world today. The main goal of this society is to make sure we're well aware of the things happening in the world, and it's not just aimed for the fans of Starset. It's influenced by the idea of Thomas Jefferson that says the first step toward a guided future is an informed public.

7. They love what they do.

The main reason they deserve success is that they love everything they do. They put so much work into making their shows interactive and enjoyable, and they spend years working on albums so that they and their fans are pleased with the final product. Knowing that they put so much passion and effort into their work makes it obvious that they deserve to be one of the biggest bands in history.

After learning more about this amazing, influential band, aren't you intrigued to hear more of their music? To learn more about their society and their comics? They're great people with a great purpose driving them to continue creating some of the most unique, epic rock sounds in history. Check out Starset. You won't regret it.
