The group released two sets of concept photos. The first set of concept photos features a photobooth-inspired set of photos. The boys strike fierce, silly, and cute poses in each photo. The second set of concept photos show the group grooming themselves in front of a mirror. V, RM, Jin, and J-Hope are seen fixing their hair; while Jimin, Suga, and Jungkook are seen putting on their earrings.

BTS’ concept photos have been well-received by the internet! The hashtags #MAP_OF_THE_SOUL_PERSONA and #PersonaConceptPhotos take the top two trends on Twitter respectively. Members Jungkook, Jin, J-Hope, and Suga are also trending on Twitter.

Prior to this set of teasers, the group released a comeback trailer featuring RM. In it, the rapper answered the question he has had all his life – “who am I?” – with all honesty. He also dropped a few drags on how other people try to answer that question for him, and how mistaken they are.
