The pink hairdo debuted around the world Thursday (May 6) morning is courtesy of BTS‘ RM, who showed off his new hair color in a set of candid pictures.
BTS’ official Twitter account shared four pictures of RM playing with his white Spitz named Rap Mon (nicknamed Monie) with a Korean caption that reads “Puppy is difficult” when translated to English. But the ARMY was having a slightly difficult time understanding his decision to return to the pastel color after he said he wouldn’t last September.
During an interview with AskAnythingChat shortly after the release of BTS’ first English-language single and Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Dynamite,” RM (real name Kim Nam-joon) said he wouldn’t dye his hair pink because it reminded him of his “dark side.” But while promoting the K-pop supergroup’s second English-language single “Butter” in his teaser clip, fans thought they had caught a glimpse of the pink hair while he was sauntering into the frame and posing in front of the camera.

With “Pink Joon” among Twitter’s top trends, the ARMY was quite satisfied with their surprise helping ahead of “Butter,” which will be released on May 21.
