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!!

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

Warcraft 3: Reforged - A legend returns

One of the top 100 games of the century makes a comeback in an epic way.


17 years ago, the legion invaded the realm of Azeroth, forcing the different races of Humans, Orcs, Night elves, and Undead to make the most unlikely of alliances. There were those who fought for the light while the others wished to banish it. Night and day, the furnaces of Lordaeron burnt bright as the loyal dwarves of Khaz Modan hammer away the swords and shields that would aid the fight ahead.

17 years ago, the young orc warchief Thrall foresaw the fate of his people as meteors of green flames crash upon his lands. He saw the upcoming demise of his clanand ordered a mass evacuation towards a new continent where they shall be safe for generations to come. 17 years ago, the night elves felt a corruption within the Tree of Life, causing them to split into opposing factions: one fought in the name of the Goddess, while the other fought in the name of personal hatred. 17 years ago, a legion of undead came upon the shores of Lordaeron, plaguing the land and defiling the life force of the realm. That was the story of Warcraft, one that spanned continents and races only to join them together for a crucial battle of their history.

Warcraft was a monument to an entire gaming generation, ranked 2nd best game of all time by German games magazine "GameStar." Its fate, however, was ultimately sealed as computing technology became better and overshadowed the old giant. Plus, with the rise of gaming consoles and handheld gaming devices, PC gaming lost its appeal slowly, and games like Starcraft or Warcraft eventually faded into oblivion.

But over on the horizon, Blizzard Entertainment came to the rescue. Following the success of their previous release of Starcraft: Remastered, they decided to come forth with their next great project: remastering Warcraft 3.

Using a new and revamped engine built over the foundations of the old one, they have rebuilt the world we once loved. Adding to that are new, high definition voices and sound effects that they recorded just for this old game. For the blurry characters of old, the team decided to upscale and remodel all present units to give them the 2019 high-def treatment they deserved. For the old user interface (UI), the development team settled on one that resembled the "Starcraft: Remastered" interface, offering more room for players to look at the gorgeous 4K character models. Also, to fit the new continuity from World of Warcraft, Blizzard opted to alter the story by a small margin, showing promising changes to the revived game.

However, not everyone was hyped when the game was announced. Many gamers expressed disappointment at Blizzard's move of remastering old games instead of developing new ones. Many, feeling uncomfortable at the company's decision, took to the internet and into forums. Some fans expressed concerns over Blizzard's decision to retcon a game they hold dear Some are unhappy with the graphics not being consistent with characters: unit models look too detailed while buildings look cartoonish.

Despite all this, the general population loved the announcement at Blizzcon. As the game slowly reaches its release date of December 31, 2019, the hype can only go up from here. For those of us who can't hold their excitement, here's a video of the crowd's insane reaction to the announcement:
