We are all in for BTS' comeback and no one can change our minds!
Just when we least expected it, the global K-Pop group dropped the first teaser-slash-bomb off their upcoming album Map Of The Soul: Persona which was single-handedly delivered by leader RM.
"Persona, who the hell am I / I just wanna go / I just wanna fly / I just wanna give you all the voices till I die / I just wanna give you all the shoulders when you cry," he sings. Namjoon stans, still alive?
OKAY, but can we talk about how the music video includes bits and pieces from the group's previous works? Believe it when we say they have everything planned from the very beginning. Check out all the reference fans' found:

Fans also think this journey to the past is parallel to what Jin said on his note during the end of Love Yourself series
