South Korean BTS are finally releasing their highly anticipated album, Map of the Soul: Persona on Friday (April 12), and while the record is set to drop at 5 a.m. EST, that’s not stopping fans from setting their alarm clocks.
The willingness to wake up for the release at the crack of dawn is no surprise, as the hype led to a reported 2.6 million copies sold within five days of the pre-sale announcement.
See below for some amazing tweets from impatient fans who are ready to wake up with the Sun to get that first BTS listen.
BTS really out here thinking I’m gonna get up at 3 am to watch a new MV and stream their new album
And they are absolutely right, see you fools then
