BTS Revisits 'Map of the Soul ON:E' Concert in New Concept Photobook

After nearly 1 million people across the globe watched BTS' virtual Map of the Soul ON:E concert in October 2020, the K-pop group is ready to flip back through those memories in their new photobook.

On Tuesday (April 20), BTS shared solo cuts from their Map of the Soul ON:E concept photobook and a 49-second video of the seven sparkling members coming together as one under a shower of confetti while the "We Are Bulletproof: The Eternal" lyric "Yeah we are not seven, with you" plays as the closer.

Their two-day virtual concert last fall, which featured impressive 23-song setlists, drew a total of 993,000 viewers from 191 countries, according to a post-concert release. "Kiswe Powers BTS’ Innovative Virtual Concert 'Map of the Soul ON:E'" is nominated in the music, general (virtual & remote) category at the 2021 Webby Awards.

"The concert crossed countless emotions. Our first march began with seven boys who gathered for a small dream. And together, we will march on forever, each of us waving flags of various colors and singing different stories in different languages. BTS is not a story of only seven, but is about you, me and everyone," the septet wrote in their post-concert statement.
