Facebook Messenger Is Launching a BTS-Inspired BT21 Sticker Collection
BTS ARMY, you get another bit of good news today!
Billboard exclusively announced on Monday (July 16) that the Korean boy band is partnering with Facebook Messenger to launch a collection of stickers and AR effects inspired by their BT21 animated characters later this month.
According to Billboard, "users will be treated to a puppy-dog-face filter in the style of Chimmy (boasting the pup's signature pink sunglasses), a crown featuring Shooky (with four iterations of the cookie character jumping on top of one's head), the mischievous Cooky climbing alongside one's face (to draw one of his wild eyebrows), and other visual surprises that users will have to wait a few more days to see."
The BT21 characters and their personalities were imagined by the members of BTS and feature Tata (inspired by V), Koya (inspired by RM), Chimmy (Jimin), RJ (Jin), Mang (J-Hope), Shooky (Suga), Cooky (Jungkook) and the space robot Van, who is said to represent the group and ARMY.
Today, the K-pop phenoms also announced they'll be putting out a new album, Love Yourself: Answer, on August 24. Pre-order begins July 18.
