BTS Marks 10th Anniversary with Heartfelt Letters to Fans

K-pop sensation BTS is celebrating a decade of success, and band members RM, Jin, and Jimin have penned special letters expressing their gratitude to their loyal fans.

BTS, also known as Bangtan Sonyeondan, made their debut ten years ago with the single album ‘2 Cool 4 Skool,’ which was released on June 12, 2013. The group, consisting of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin, and Jungkook, has since captivated audiences worldwide.

Jin, whose real name is Kim Seok-jin, shared his heartfelt letter on the fan community forum Weverse, addressing BTS’s dedicated fan base known as ARMY. While serving in the military since December last year, he expressed his regret for not being able to celebrate the band’s milestone with the fans and apologized for any shortcomings.

RM, whose real name is Kim Namjoon and serves as the group’s leader, acknowledged the special bond they share with their fans, emphasizing how their unwavering support propelled BTS to global stardom. He reflected on his growth over the past decade and the ever-changing world, recognizing that some things that seemed permanent have the potential to transform.

Jimin, also known as Park Ji-min, expressed his gratitude to the fans for their continuous love and support throughout the past ten years. He acknowledged the profound impact of their support and the joy it brings, encouraging fans to embrace lasting happiness together.

V, whose real name is Kim Tae-hyung, celebrated the anniversary by sharing behind-the-scenes footage of the band on social media, further connecting with their adoring fan base.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary, BigHit Music, BTS’s management agency, released the digital single “Take Two.” The group is currently on hiatus since last June, with members planning to fulfill their service commitment before reuniting as a unit around 2025.

The BTS anniversary is a significant pop culture event in South Korea, and the country has organized a series of celebratory events. Landmarks in Seoul, such as City Hall, Han River bridges, and Lotte World Tower, have been illuminated in purple, the band’s signature color. Postal authorities have also issued commemorative stamps, marking the beginning of a week-long celebration in South Korea and among BTS fans worldwide.
