It has been reported that the members of BTS have worked with Naver's LINE Corporation to create their own characters and emojis.
The collaboration resulted in the birth of BT21, eight new LINE characters. But BTS has only seven members, 'how does it make sense to end up with eight characters?' you might ask. The eighth character is actually a character that represents the band themselves and their fanbase 'A.R.M.Y'. The characters of BT21 include Tata (created by V), RJ (created by Jin), Chimmy (created by JiMin), Cooky (created by JungKook), Mang (created by J-Hope), Shooky (created by Suga), Koya (created by Rap Monster), and the robot Van.
The characters will be incorporated into fashion and emojis as well in the near future soon. The collaboration is said to have happened for the purposes of catering to all consumers and not just to BTS fans. Products related to this collaboration will be showcased in New York, where the Line Friends flagship store is located. In South Korea, the showcase will take place in 'Boon the Shop'. Both showcases are planned to be held during this upcoming December.
