As fans await their highly-anticipated album Love Yourself: Her, BTS has released a comeback trailer titled ‘Serendipity,’ featuring member Jimin on vocals. This is a change since in their previous comeback trailers, rappers J-Hope and Suga were featured, rather than the singers.
The new video arrives just as the group’s website changed to a countdown last night. Fans had formed different theories for when the timer reached zero, such as the release of their tracklist, a mixtape, or even concept photos. However, when the timer ran out, their website displayed a YouTube link to the comeback trailer instead.
What will happen if it strikes 00:00:00? Can't wait? https://t.co/ofOdHaZJtk #btscountdown pic.twitter.com/QYJY4hYvJG
