BTS are partnering with YouTube Shorts for a new initiative with ARMY. The initiative is called #MyBTStory, and Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook are encouraging fans to post their favorite memories of the band on YouTube.
BTS want fans to share ‘BTS stories’ on YouTube
On June 6, a video was posted on the official BTS Twitter account. The video shows a letter in a blue envelope addressed to ARMY from BTS.
In a follow-up tweet, the letter in the envelope reads:
For nine years, you have been our greatest champions. As we embark on the journey to our 10th year as a band, we want to remember and celebrate all the special moments we’ve had together so far.
Beginning this Saturday, we want to ask you to share your BTS stories with us, and each other, on YouTube Shorts.
From our first concert to the world’s biggest stages, to video premieres and album releases, you have been there for us and we want to relive these unforgettable BTS moments with you.
By adding the hashtag #MyBTStory to your Short we will be able to watch and possibly include your story in an ARMY tribute video we are making that will feature a collection of these memories.
ARMY, we love you so much, thank you for sticking by us and we can’t wait to see what you create!
