In anticipation of next week’s Love Yourself: Answer release, Korean septet BTS unveiled some promotional images for the album on Monday (Aug. 13).
In 16 pictures associated with the "S" and "E" versions of Answer, the members of BTS -- RM, Suga, Jin, Jungkook, Jimin, V and J-Hope -- are seen both on their own and in a group. The eight "S" images are brightly hued pictures with red backdrops that show the men flanked by amplifiers, cameras, open eyes and stretched-out hands. The "E" photos are much softer, featuring pastels, giant Glinda the Good Witch-esque bubbles and fantastical nature elements.
The images appear to draw on a variety of inspirations, including The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and New Romanticism.
