The South Korean boyband revealed their second record in 2020 — the first, Map of the Soul: 7 was released in February — after a week-long stint on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon where they served up multiple performances, interviews and even played games with the host. Although the boys didn’t tease any new music during their time on the show, they did spill some tea with the album announcement.
Since then, fans of the seven-piece K-pop group — comprised of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook — have been analyzing their social media post for any clues as to what they can expect on the album. From the look of it, ARMY thinks they may have uncovered the sub-units on BE. Between the Map of the Soul ON:E concert VCRs and a comment from their May 11 YouTube log, some of fans think the sub-units are comprised of: V and RM; Jin, Suga, and Jimin; and J-Hope and Jungkook. Others have theorized that the BE concept photo holds the answer. In which case, the sub-units would be: Jimin and Jungkook; Suga and J-Hope; Jin, V, and RM.
Ever since they were formed in 2012, BTS stole the hearts of millions of people around the world with their catchy songs and gained a pretty massive fan base called ARMY. Throughout their eight years as a band, BTS dropped eight full-length albums and are gearing up to release the ninth.
