SEOUL, Kr. – One of the BTS ARMY (Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth) found the group’s possible concept for their return in September this year. The post has gone viral after the discovery.
How Did It All Begin?
It all started when Jin (Kim Seok-Jin) posted a selfie. In his post, he can be seen holding a bouquet of flowers named “Smeraldo.” However, there’s no such thing as a “smeraldo,” but when an avid fan searched for it, a blog appeared in the search results.
The blog site, which also featured a “Smeraldo flower” has a photo captioned “BTS_Smeraldo.” The source code of the blog shows “Seokjin Flower” for the word “Smeraldo.” Seokjin is Jin’s real name.
Other Discoveries of the BTS ARMY
Aside from that, fans also discovered a boutique shop selling the beautiful but non-existent flower Smeraldo. The store features a photo of what seems to be Jin’s handwriting. According to sources, the boutique will open in September, which also happens to be the date of the group’s most-awaited return.
Aside from the shop, there’s also the “Smeraldo Academy.” According to a fan who discovered it, the “foundation day” of the academy is on September 12, which is Rap Monster’s birthday (Kim Nam-joon). Coincidentally, the “Smeraldo Academy” will celebrate their 4th anniversary this year, the same duration of the BTS’ tenure as a pop group. The name of the attending member of the said event is “In bloom BTS.”
The incredible discoveries didn’t stop there. BTS fans found a blog featuring a tale of seven legends that focused on the smeraldo plant. One of the legends is William Ashbless, who is a fictional character. However, if you search for William Ashbless on the internet, a Wikimedia post about this person will appear. If you type this name on a Korean keyboard, it will be read as 방탄소년단.
Fans are also speculating if the flowers in the HwaYangYeonHwa albums are smeraldos.
Do you think the BTS ARMY just cracked the code, or are these just clever but misleading rumors?
