On May 1, Big Hit Music released the first teaser for “Butter,” a poster of seven individual photographs. The seven images are of yellow balloons with smiley faces, heart-shaped confetti, a drink being poured, toast with heart-shaped butter, a camera and film on the floor, spilled candy, and a crushed lollipop.

Big Hit Music released concept clips for RM and Jungkook on May 3, showing that each image on the teaser poster represents one of the seven members of BTS. In Jungkook’s concept clip, he spreads butter on toast, while RM shoots off a confetti popper in his teaser.
