Concept photos for J-Hope, Jimin, and V were released on social media on May 13. In the teaser images, the BTS members pose in the doorway of an elevator and wear the same outfits they wore in the group teaser.

V wears an orange suit and has dark hair in his teaser photo. Instead of looking at the camera, he shows off his profile by looking in front of him. For his “Butter” teaser image, J-Hope sports yellow hair and stares directly into the camera.

Jimin of BTS stands in the center of the elevator doorway with his hands in the pockets of his gray suit. By looking to the side, BTS fans get a better look at his hair that is dyed blonde with pink and blue highlights.
